A Ton Of New Vampires Join Breaking Dawn: Is Casting Finally Over?
The final installment of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, doesn't just cap things off with Bella giving bloody, life-threatening birth to a half-human half-vampire baby who immediately becomes Jacob's one true love. Oh no, it gets way weirder than that, with vampire tribes from all over the world assembling to try and threaten the baby, until they're called off by Bella's love for Edward, or maybe the abs of the wolfpack? I haven't read the book, so I'm really just spitballing here.
Anyway, the massive amount of vampires in the final two films-- you remember that Breaking Dawn will be two movies, right?-- means there's a ton of casting to go through, and Summit Entertainment has at least done the favor of announcing all the vampires in a single press release. They confirm a few rumors we've heard previously, including that Lee Pace will play a Revolutionary War-era vampire named Garrett and Joe Anderson, who made a great impression in The Crazies, will play the "European Nomad" Alistair, who has a "misanthropic, brooding personality" and only visits his buddy Carlisle (Peter Facinelli) once a century.
The rest of the names are either only vaguely familiar or totally unknowns to me, so I'll just present you the details and who's playing who in the excerpted press release below. Breaking Dawn, both parts, has already started filming-- you can see "trees and catering" from the set here-- which means the endless casting process may finally, mercifully be over. God bless us, everyone.
