Heard yesterday that Dakota Fanning is in talks with Summit to play Jane. With red contacts I can so see her working.
My MIL and I were just talking about New Moon casting and she mentioned seeing Jane as someone young like Fanning. so funny. She's a a fabulous actress and I have a feeling she could pull off nearly any role thrown her way.
I read yesterday that Vanessa Hudgins (sp?) from HSM series had been in the running for Leah Clearwater, but I think all of that fell through. I'm pretty happy about that though, I'd much rather it be some unknown than someone from teeny bopper fame.
Yeah i heard Leah was between Brenda Song or Vanessa Hudgens. Personally i think Brenda looks to Asian to play someone who is supposed to be native American. I think Vanessa would be much better.
Also People has a pole up right now for who people think should be cast as Alec.http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20254479,00.html
Last night i went searching and someone mentioned Ian McKellen as Aro, and perhaps Alan Rickman as another of the Volturi family.
I could see anybody in that poll playing Alec except for the little guy from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory...he just looks too young and innocent to me.
Vanessa Hudgens would make a good Leah but I just don't see her doing it. Needs to be someone who you don't picture breaking out into a song and dance!
oohhh I think she would do an excellent job!!!
