In my head...  

Bella: I'm sorry, Kristen Stewart for Bella? Not cuttin' it. Maybe it's because she fills the age requirement as of now. But Emily has this old soul thing in her eyes you can't deny.


Although, I can also see Ellen Page (they alternate scenes in my cranium, like a broadway lead and her understudy.) in Bella's shoes too. Have you seen Hard Candy?!?!? And yes, she played Kitty in the craptastic X-Men movie, but still, she's cute and has the whole wide eyed fascination of Bella. How come SHE didn't get the role?!?!?!!? BAH! I want HER TO BE BELLA!!!!!! *criez*



~ * ~ * ~

Edward: GASPARD!!! I mean have you HEARD his voice?!?!? ZOMG! It has the velvety quality that Bella describes. Also, 400 plus years is enough to learn another language, I say hell, make Edward quote Shakespeare in French for frak sake. Accent aside, cos well, they don't hire dialogue/dialect coaches for nuthin', he LOOKS like an Edward.

On the same note I could go for the Count of Monte Cristo's son all growed up, he looky like a man, as Edward too.

Henry Cavill

ZOMG! So there. In my head it's either Emily & Gaspard or Ellen & Henry. *sigh*

~ * ~ * ~

Carlisle: Even tho the popular consensus is Charlie Hunnam, which most likely has to do with his portrayal of Nicolas Nickleby and his altruistic kindness, I totally agree with that.

Yet somehow this battle of whose a better Carlisle wages in my head with:

Jonathan Rhys Meyer

~ * ~ * ~

Esme: Prolly comes from her previous work associated in and around the Vampy world but wouldn't she ROCK as Esme???

Sophia Myles

OOOORRRRR... Cos she's a relative new comer and the Sunny height requirement of being 5'8" to be a vamp, in two inch heels, is totally met...

Eva Green

~ * ~ * ~

Alice: Look at that smirk!!! And she doesn't look a day over 18. *completely ignores the fact that she's 5'2"

Rachel Leigh Cook

~ * ~ * ~

Rosalie: Now she's a toughie. I want Emily De Ravin's face on a 5'8" actress. But seriously? Emmett is a frakking tree! And trees overshadow little shrubs by blocking out the sunlight through the enormous canopy of above. Rose is a tree. An envious, struggling for the light, beautiful, vigorously protective tree. And small little shrubs can never be trees!!! Emily can never be a tree. Rose must be a tree!!!

Rachael Taylor

~ * ~ * ~

Emmett: Okay, as aforementioned, I always think of Emmett as a tree. A Red Cedar, if you will. Tall, stalwart, having that sense of foreverness by mocking ever so lightly to those on the forest floor. So I thought of Eric Dane cos he's a tree and fully of smirky mockery. But like the trees, he's too ancient to play the part of a three hundred year old who looks 17. So the next best colossus?

Daniel Cudmore

~ * ~ * ~

Jasper: He was a toughie to figure out. First I thought Jon Rhys Meyer, but he's too old so he became Carlisle. Then I happened upon the 4400 and went. JASPER?!?!?!?!?!?! Plus, wouldn't he be cute with Rachel??

Patrick Flueger

~ * ~ * ~

James: Yes, it's totally type-cast but he does psycho so well. Have you seen Red Eye??? Batman Begins??? Sociopath.

Cillian Murphy

~ * ~ * ~

Charlie: I can kinda see John C. Reilly in this part what with the curly hair and oafish ho-hum kinda guy but I like Chris Cooper for his portrayal of tough guys with heart. Also, he can do oafish.

Chris Cooper

~ * ~ * ~

Renee: Slightly harder to imagine, yet this has to do with my leftover Roswellian lurve (Tabasco forever!!!) and her perfect portrayal of hippie-tastic matriarchs. Also, she and Ellen kinda have similar features.

Diane Farr

There you have it my friends. My NON-CRAKY casting of the Twilight verse and all it's beautiful people.

Kristen Stewart as Bella = EVIL! And Bad. No offense to Kristin Stewart, but she's sooooooo not Bella. Completely agree about Emily. As for the rest - have to admit I've not given it much thought, but I do like some of your choices. :D

COMPLETELY! Seriously? I scratched my head when I found out Kristen got the part. I dunno it's not that I don't like her but it's like they wanna make an Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue out of this movie.

And thanks! It took me a while to have thinky thoughts and then line up their pictures and see how they looked together, (If you line up the boys they look like brothers. I had a harder time with the girls tho cos I have no Rose. BAH! The bane of my casting), match their skills as actors etc etc. I may have missed my calling...

I am unfamiliar with this fandom of which you speak...but I think it's the one kit's sister had her art stolen by someone that wanted to "claim to" illustrate the characters. What's it called (twilight?) and who wrote it?

Is it? I have to ask. I thought it was the Mad Hatter 'N Alice?

The books follow in series: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer.

I saw you reading this a few months back...I think you got it from the library...and you were supposed to let me know if it was good. Do they have this series in the store? Lemme know. I claim dibs.

Dude! You remember. Nice. Well, it's written for teenage girls from a teenage girls POV. So if you're down for that kind of stuff, which can get pretty romanticised and overtly dramatic at times cos OMG!teeny!angst!&!woe!, then it's cool. Mostly I'm lovin' it for the vampy/werewolf angle.

Anyway, yeah they have come through the store but, uh, I asked Amber to snag 'em for me and am currently in possession of book 2 & 3. Just haves to wait for the first now. I tell her today to put some on the side for you if they ever come thru again. ^_^

Kristen Stewart as Bella?! Hell no! So wrong. I agree with most of your choices especially the one for Alice. She'd be perfect!

You didn't cast Jacob...
Sunny: SGA John eyebrow'dsunny_serenity on January 4th, 2008 09:53 pm (UTC)
LOL! Dude. Seriously. All wrong. Not that she's a bad actress she's just the wrong actress for this part. It seems to be the main consensus of the fans, and by that I mean me. ^_-

Well, seeeeee, that's cos Jacob is Eddie Spears in my head but he's too old for the part now so I left that open... *sigh*
