Who Will Join Robert Pattinson in Eclipse?

The Eclipse is coming

You all just saw the trailer for the next installment in the Twilight saga, New Moon. So is it too early to start talking about the third movie, Eclipse? We don't think so. And we want to know who will be joining Robert Pattinson to star in it.

Wait, you mean there are going to be more actors and actresses for us to be crazy obsessed with? One thing that's for sure is that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will remain a member of the Twilight cast. Phew. But there are still a few roles that need to be filled for Eclipse and we can't wait to find out who is chosen!

The three major roles that need to be filled starting with brother and sister werewolves Seth and Leah Clearwater. These characters live in La Push like fellow werewolf Jacob, played by Taylor Lautner. We hear that the production is looking for First Nations actors to fill both roles.

The third role to be filled is Riley, a clean-cut, blonde college boy who falls for Victoria.

Sounds like we are all in for at least another crush. Seth's character in the book is absolutely adorable and we are sure we will love him. As for Riley, we are also sure they will cast someone extra hot. Rumor had is that Channing Tatum was up for the role. Interesting. We'll definitely keep you posted!

Eclipse is set to start filming at the end of the summer so we are hoping to have news on the cast soon!

So, more Twilight hunks to compete with Robert Pattinson. Do you think they could cast someone even hotter than him? Take a look at our favorite Robert P pics and then decide.

'Eclipse' Already Looking For More Vampires and Werewolves

The thing with doing the Twilight fans at such a short time is, you'll never know when exactly they'll stop working on one and start on another.  It's a hell of a lot, come to think of it--Twilight almost swept the MTV Movie Awards last Sunday (which was, let's face it, a given), New Moon just released its first trailer even if shooting is still underway, and Eclipse is already casting.  Yep, Eclipse is already casting.

The third film in the Twilight saga, set to be directed by 30 Days of Night helmer David Slade, has begun looking for at least three characters.  It's up and running, indeed, especially if you consider that they'll begin shooting the film in August.  Here's who they're looking for, and how they describe the characters--well, sure, you know who they are, but it doesn't hurt to know, right?

Casting notice one: Riley, "a handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria" and "plays an integral role in Victoria's attempt to murder Bella Swan."  They're looking for someone who's in his early to mid-20s.

Casting notice two: Seth Clearwater, "a tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin" who "idolizes Jacob."

Casting notice three: Leah Clearwater, who is "tall and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair," and would've been considered beautiful if not for "the perpetual scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues."  As with New Moon, they're hoping that Native American actors will fill the last two roles.

So, sure, that means Eclipse is in full swing, but what about Breaking Dawn?  No official word yet, it seems.  "I'm hoping that they make four," Peter Facinelli said during the MTV Movie Awards.  "I mean, if New Moon does well, I think they'll make four."

Ashley Greene's hopes are, well, farther.  "They're just going to have to make a Twilight Five," she quipped.  "I will be forever known as a Twilight girl."

'Twilight': Casting for 'Eclipse' begins

With the first trailer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon barely 24 hours old, news has already leaked of casting breakdowns for three characters in the third Twilight film, Eclipse. Casting directors are looking for actors to take on at least three roles for the film, to be directed by David Slade (30 Days of Night):

* Riley "a handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria [and] plays an integral role in Victoria's attempt to murder Bella Swan."

* Seth Clearwater, a member of the La Push werewolf clan and a "tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin [who] idolizes Jacob."

* Leah Clearwater, Seth's big sister, and the only woman in La Push, who is "tall and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair. She would be considered gorgeous if not for the perpetual scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues."

Casting directors are reportedly looking to cast the Clearwater siblings with Native American or First Nation actors. (E! Online first reported these casting details.) The film is due in theaters in June 2010.
