And Now There's a People Poll

People magazine wants to know who you think would make the best Alec...
Your choices are Tom Felton, Lucas Grabeel, Gaspard Ulliel and Freddie Highmore. You can read the article and cast your vote here.

It Just Keeps Getting Worse!

Let me say that I love Entertainment Weekly. I visit their website often, I look forward to receiving each issue in the mail. I have all four of the Twilight covers. I loved seeing Heath Ledger featured in the latest issue, no matter how hard it was to see his beautiful face when I first pulled it out of the mailbox. Having said all that...EW really knows how to tick me off!!!

The two actors mentioned in the article are Elijah Wood and Lucas Grabeel. Let me start with Lucas. High School Musical. I really feel like that's all I have to say there. Although, I must admit that he does have the look, except for being blonde. Because I have young children, I have recently seen Elijah Wood doing the Puppetmaster in the "Dancey Dance" portion of Yo Gabba Gabba. I cannot handle him as Alec after seeing that. And I mean seriously, from hobbit to vampire?

I feel like these movies are being invaded by these "big" names. In case you're not aware, it is at least official that Miss Fanning will be meeting with Chris Weitz next week to discuss the role. What are they doing? Lauren said that maybe bringing some of these names in would prove that these movies aren't just fluff pieces. I certainly don't think that trying to turn it into HSM 4 is going to do that. Why not provide some lesser known talents the opportunity of a lifetime to fill these roles and mesmerize us. I never once during Twilight looked at the screen and thought, wow, there comes Robert Pattinson. Oh, there's Kristen Stewart. Ah, it's Kellan Lutz. I only saw Edward, Bella, Emmet, Jacob and the Cullens. I want to be able to have that same experience with New Moon.

One last thing, because there seems to have been a lot of confusion over the description of Jane and Alec, I am going to quote from their Twilight Lexicon bios, which you can view in their entirety by clicking on the name. Jane is rather short with brown hair. "Very tiny with lank, pale brown hair trimmed short. Rather slim and androgynous figure with a face too pretty for a boy. She has wide-eyes, full-lips and a child-like voice." Alec is her twin brother. "Nearly identical to Jane with slightly darker hair and lips that aren’t as full." They were changed when they were very young, per the bios.

So tell me, what do you think?

8 Things She Hates About Rob

Lupe Lassano from Times of The Internet has written a list of the 8 things that are "bugging" her about Robert. I have listed just the main points here, she elaborates on each one in the article. It's an interesting read. I want to know where she lives so I can move there and be "assaulted" by Robert Pattinson...LOL

Robert Pattinson this, Robert Pattinson that. You can’t leave your house anymore
without being assaulted by Robert Pattinson...

8) Nobody is this humble!

7) He doesn’t have a girlfriend.

6) He’s nice to fans.

5) He’s had it too easy in Hollywood.

4) He doesn’t get involved in unnecessary drama.

3) Girls love him just a bit too much.

2) He’s not going away any time soon.

1) His new haircut.

Could New Moon return to Kalama?

Chris Weitz and the producers of Twilight revisited the high school in Kalamaused as Forks High. Although they have not committed to filming there, they have told officials at the school that if they did, they would need to be there in late March or early April. You can read the whole article here.

The trip was to show Chris Weitz all the places that they used to film Twilight. Does this mean that the whole thing won't be filmed in Canada after all? Or does it mean that they're just trying to get a good idea of what they're looking for to make the movies match up? I don't know how they'd find another house to use for the Cullen house and there certainly isn't any way to leave it out of the movie. What do you think?

More Movie Stills

These new movie stills were released today.

The bad vamps doing what they do best
Edward, mostly hanging out of the tree
A different view of the kiss



And then this one...for which I do not believe there are words exquisite enough to describe...


Wow! That is dazzling.

Empire Outtakes

These outtakes were released today from Empire Magazine.








I love Rob's smile in the last one. It's a shame it's not so flattering of Kristen.

More from Vanity Fair

I agree with Tierra, they need to just do a book of the Vanity Fair shoot...or at least a special issue that is just the pictures from the Twilight shoot. Amazing that they got so many great shots in such a short time. Definitely an awesome photographer. I like this one better than the last version released. It doesn't look like Rob is trying to do anything painful to Taylor...LOL
Okay, this shot makes more sense in the wider angle, I suppose.
But I still see no possible explanation for this one...

Please tell me this is not true!

E! is reporting that Dakota Fanning is in talks to play Jane in New Moon. Please, please, please tell me this is not so! She is so over exposed! And why oh why can't people figure out that Twilight vampires do NOT have fangs! No fangs people, figure it out. I really hope that the role of Jane goes to a very talented yet lesser known actress. Casting Dakota Fanning in the role makes this a Dakota Fanning movie...not a movie about Edward and Bella. I mean, we'd like to get new fans on board, but not this way.

Also, the fact that they did the picture this way bugs me and it says she would be playing "opposite" Robert Pattinson as though she'd be another lead. This is a sore spot for me, if you can't tell.

What do you think? Do you want to see her cast as Jane?
More:
I neglected to mention my concern as to what casting Dakota Fanning in the role would do to the budget which is already going to be stretched if they're going to shoot in Italy and get the special effects done right. This is a role that will be expanded upon in the following movies, particularly Eclipse. Also, according to her bio on Twilight Lexicon, Jane is originally from Volterra. Why not cast a young Italian actress in the role?
This topic is also being discussed at Lauren's Bite, among other sites.

German Interview

Pattinson online features a recently released interview from Germany's Madchen Magazine. You can read the whole article here. This was one of my favorite parts...

M├Ądchen: How does it feel when girls ask you to bite them?
ROB: I don’t
think that they know what they’re saying. If somebody would
bite me I think
I’d hit him. (laughs)

An Animated Twilight Spoof


Starz.com has done "Twilight in 30 Seconds and Re-Enacted by Bunnies". Just click on the picture to watch. It is hilarious! I can't tell you how many times I have watched it. I find something new in it every time. I do caution you though, there are many other of the "Bunnies" shorts that contain extreme behavior and language so be careful when visitng the site, particularly with children present.

Access Hollywood Screen Shots


Wow!

VMAN Extra Photos

Let me preface this one by saying that it really irks me that Rob smokes, I mean, it's not exactly the way to hang on to that Movie Edward face, however, I laughed out loud when I saw this one. Kellan doing a very good scary vampire
Kellan and Rob...I LOVE this one!
What gorgeous smiles
Okay, interesting Taylor pose there
And this one made me laugh twice as loud as the first one!

This is the most expensive item on my list, but anyone who has ever discussed Twilight with me knows that this is my ultimate favorite quote...(although I prefer the quote in its entirety, this is gorgeous)
I LOVE this locket

So, I know that you now feel unending gratitude to me for sharing these things with you. No thanks is necessary, however Hot Topic gifts cards are accepted! LOL

Rob at open mic

Rob is still at home in London, trying to lay low and stay out of the Twilight mania for a little while. I want to make it clear that I am NOT a fan of PerezHilton, but I did want to post this story that originated there. I will not, however, be linking to his site or the other sites reporting it because they all link back to his site. Yesterday he posted a fan pic with Rob from a pub. Today he posted two more pics of Rob...

"This time he was spotted again at a SoHo pub in London for open mic night.

We're told Pattinson was there with some friends and performed two songs which apparently "silenced the room" with how good he was."


As a huge fan of Rob's music, I'm not surprised that he "silenced the room," but I would like to know what two songs he did.
