In New Moon, Sheen will play Aro, the leader of an Italian vampire clan called the Volturi.
Director Chris Weitz confirmed Sheen’s casting to The Mail on Sunday and said he had ‘aggressively’ pursued the actor.
‘Michael’s role is so important because he’s the head of all vampires,’ he said. ‘Aro is, on the surface, a very gracious and friendly vampire, but beneath that he is a tremendous threat.’
So what's your reaction? After looking at some pictures, I think this is probably a wonderful choice. I also love that he's 40, not 20. The only thing that bothers me is the amount the article says they're paying. That's a significant chunk of the budget if the budget is what has been rumored. However, let's keep in mind, if Rob was being paid what had been reported for this movie, he'd be walking around naked... So I'm taking all the salary talk with a grain of salt.

Thank you, Chris Weitz. You have somehow managed to make Edward even more beautiful. I didn't know it could be done. Now this is definitely the Edward of our dreams...
Thanks to TwiCrack for these. You can see even more here. And of course, there will be more pics on the blog when I'm had time to recover from seeing these...lol.
I think this is probably a good time to explain my paparazzi policy. I do not post paparazzi pictures as a general rule. My exception is cases like these particular pics. No, not just ones that we really want to see...lol. I do post pics from the set because these are working pics. As much as we all love to know what they're doing off set and see them, I do not post any pics that are taking of them during their personal time away from work. I would want some privacy, and I want to afford them the same when it comes to my blog. I am no way bashing or criticizing anyone else, I just wanted to state the policy here, which will also apply to my forum once I get it set up. The forum hosting service I was originally planning to use isn't working out so I'm back in the market.
And here are the more pics I promised...
Doesn't everyone just look fantastic? I can't wait to see the rest of the Cullens.
So, Catherine, thanks for everything!
P.S. I am looking forward to what Chris Weitz is going to do with New Moon and I have total faith in him, along with Stephenie, to bring us another great installment.

She starts off 2009 landing the role of Emily Young in the Twilight Sequel “New Moon”; and is very excited to be working with such a talented cast and brilliant director.
I think we've already seen that someone who may not seem right for a part in the beginning can absolutely blow you away. I still think its hilarious that 70,000 people signed a petition against Rob. I couldn't imagine anyone else as Edward. We've pushed the box office over 350 million and bought 6 million dvds. Many of us even own more than one version. Sp what do you think? Please Summit, throw us a bone and let us know who else has been cast in New Moon...
After looking at all the pictures, I think that both cities are breathtaking, but my heart belongs to Volterra. Blame it on Stephenie. So what do you think?
Thanks to Pillow Biters for the video.
The official How To Be online store is now up and running. As mentioned, they have art, posters, apparel, cards, stationary, pillows and so much more. And speaking of How To Be merchandise...
Also, on a slightly different note, was anyone else disappointed that Neil Patrick Harris had a much bigger photo spread in GQ than Rob? We would have enjoyed seeing Rob model various suits...or the rain coats for that matter!
TwiCrack for finding these. She found them on lion_lamb. They were scanned by neko_oni and posted in part one and part two. Big thanks to neko_oni for all her work sharing these.

Update: A screen cap from ROBsessed. Now this one, I totally get.
And this one I get too. Even with the mesh tank. I think the people who choose which photos to use are just not thinking right.
Apparently New Moon Movie has already posted their theory that the green area will be used to create composite shots, but just for the record, I was thinking the same thing.
In a related note...Christian Serratos, Anna Kendrick, Justin Chon and Michael Welch were spotted arriving in Vancouver today. I don't know why, but this just makes me giddy. I suppose it's the high school reunion you'd actually want to go to.

I saw these at several different sites today, but just now got around to posting them. I found them together on TwiCrack.

These are all individually hand painted so no two pairs are alike. She is now taking orders by commission so you can choose your own quotes and artwork. You can even replace the traditional laces be replaced with black and white or red ribbon laces. Click here to email Sandira about getting a pair of these for your very own.
"There's actually a lot more to work with. The second movie is much more quaint. The first one was about ultimate love and abandon, and that was good, but it's kind of one-note. This one's a different story."
"Over the course of these four movies Bella has to become a formidable partner because -- I'm not ruining it for anyone -- they end up together. In the first one, he's very much a man and she's very much a child, so she has to become a formidable partner. We're working on that."
This article is definitely worth the read. I think Kristen really "gets" Bella, and what more could we ask for! Thanks to New Moon Movie for finding this one.
So what do you think? Would Rob make a good SNL host? The article authors are skeptical. Me? I think Rob is more comfortable in front of the camera as a character than he is as Rob, but the more of his work I am exposed to, the less likely I am to rule anything out.
