I have to admit that I didn't think he looked old enough or big enough to be Sam...I guess in my mind Sam has always been so huge because his role is such a huge one in the pack. He's even the biggest wolf until Jacob outgrows him...I just didn't see it...but I was glad Taylor is returning so I am glad he will be too...I like the idea of keeping everything and everyone the same...

Yeah, I agree he doesn't look as big as I imagined Sam - and especially now with Taylor beefing up so much... not that I'm complaining, lol!
But I love the Lexicon interviews for this guy - he's so into the character - learning Quileute and writing that amazing poem for Emily...
I'll be so sad if they don't find a way to include him at all - I kinda heart him, lol!

You guys think it's true? :(


Do you mean this bit in particular:

"However, in a film with such a strong Native American theme, only two actors of Native American decent were hired. But due to reasons unknown, Solomon Trimble (Apache) who played and established the character of Sam Uley, has suddenly lost his role.

Sam Uley’s character has been re-posted onto the Hollywood-casting breakdown, and it is obvious that Hollywood is now looking for a more marketable teen heartthrob celebrity actor to play the more substantial and very desirable part."

I'll be so sad not to see Solomon in NM - seriously, if Taylor can beef up to realistically pull off a werewolf Jacob, then Solomon should be included somewhere - even if it's maybe as Quil or Paul or even Seth!

I think there needs to be a Team Solomon! Who wants an avatar?!

What? The casting people should read this thread. Even if Solomon isn't 'marketable', he's a great actor, really dedicated to his role, and quite a few of the girls on here think he's a heart-throb :D

It could just be another rumour, but it sounds quite official. I hate it when they change actors. I can't personally see anything wrong with Solomon - if they let Taylor keep his role, you'd think they'd let a more minor character keep his role.

I think maybe the casting people are keeping their options open - perhaps even waiting to see if fans will react to Solomon being replaced, like they did with Taylor?
I'm seriously starting a Team Solomon - please share: www.myspace.com/team_solomon - to try and help keep him from being over-looked in place of more "money making" names - like they need it at this point?!

There's a new Solomon interview here.

There's still no official news yet. :( What he says at the bottom is what he's said since Twilight filming. I really hope we get something OFFICIAL soon!
