New Moon Mondays: Eclipse Casting, Teen Choice Awards and More!

Casting News - Victoria cast change for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Big news over the past few days if that the character of Victoria has been re-cast with Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation, The Village), instead of Rachelle Lefevre due to scheduling conflicts. Rachelle Lefevre played the role of Victoria in Twilight and in the upcoming second film in the series The Twilight Saga: New Moon.

Casting News - Xavier Samuel cast as Riley in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
Reading The Hollywood Reporter article about the casting of Xavier Samuel on the Summit site
had me a little confused. Let me quote it for you "An unknown Australian actor named Xavier Samuel has landed the first new role in "Eclipse," the third "Twilight" pic." Unknown eh? His IMDb Page indicates 5 films credits for completed films so far , one of which is The Loved Ones which is included in a part of the Midnight Madness programme this year at TIFF. I've even seen two of the other films Newcastle and September, albeit in festival settings, and in both films he had strong performances in pivotal roles. I want to wait to give an impression of the casting choice until re-reading the Eclipse which I won't do until after the release of New Moon, but from his previous works I bet we are in for a treat with Xavier Samuel as the newborn vampire Riley.

Vampire Fashion
It's perfect timing the that images of the Volturi just appeared online, as the new episode of Before the Dawn: A Twilight Podcast is all about Vampire Fashion. Marina & I discuss clothes, influence, pop culture, merchandise and well... even get a little crafty.

They re-cast Victoria, the red-haired bad vamp. I can't image they would re-cast Bella at this point!
