The Daily Beast: Breakout Stars of 2009–Taylor and Cam made the list!

Cam Gigandet:
Some teen-TV fans may remember Cam as the guest character on The O.C. responsible for killing off Mischa Barton, but he’s going to be known for much more than Marissa-cide after this year. Cam has a whopping seven movies in production for 2009—and those are just the ones that have been officially announced. After his breakout role as a pale vampire in last fall’s Twilight, Cam will appear in Pandorum (a thriller about a spaceship with Dennis Quaid), Five Star Day (a coming of age story with Jena Malone), and Kid Cannabis, among others.

Taylor Lautner:
After originating the role of Jacob Black in the original crazy successful teen-vampires-stare-and-brood Twilight, there was talk Taylor Lautner wouldn’t be cast in the sequel. Fortunately, the director was convinced and Lautner is bulking up to play the older role in the follow-up New Moon, which will be rushed into theaters this November. Robert Pattinson, watch your back. Teen girls, get your screaming pipes ready.


The Twilight Lexicon Clears up some more casting rumors.

Turns out America Ferrera did not audition for the part of Emily, but rather America YOUNG did.

Kristen Stewart to present Oscar?

There is talk that Kristen will be presenting at the Academy Awards.
the show’s producers have decided to keep the identity of the remaining presenters under wraps this season–but not for too long! We hear from inside sources (take note, designers!) that the calls went out to Keira Knightley, Kate Beckinsale, Reese Withersoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristen Stewart, and Jennifer Aniston.


Taylor Lautner talks about New Moon

Now that Taylor Lautner has been confirmed for “New Moon,” I went back to my notes from my interview with the young star from the “Twilight” junket last fall in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Lautner plays Jacob Black, pal of heroine Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), in “Twilight.” In the second book, “New Moon,” Jacob begins turning into a werewolf. The transformation puts Bella between two loyalties: her boyfriend, Edward (Robert Pattinson) is a vampire, and vampires and werewolves are enemies.

Chris Weitz, who is directing the film version of “New Moon,” recently tapped Lautner for the sequel, after determining that the teen star would be convincing in the role. In “New Moon,” Jacob grows bigger and stronger as he transforms into werewolf. Lautner has been bulking up for months in preparation to play Jacob in the sequel.

“Jacob’s character gets so cool. It is so more in-depth in the rest of the series. When he turns into a werewolf it is like he has two separate personalities. When he’s himself he’s this nice outgoing guy and when he goes werewolf on you he’s super intense and Bella’s just blown away like ‘what is with this freak now,’” Lautner said in the interview.

Lautner said he was unfamiliar with Stephenie Meyer’s mega-best-selling “Twilight” books until he tried out for the role.

“I had not even heard about ‘Twilight’ until I auditioned for it and then as soon as I was cast I was like, what am I getting myself into? I was blown away and so incredibly excited,” he said.

Lautner received a great deal of support from “Twilight” fans, which undoubtedly helped him keep the role. Now, the excitement continues for the young star – and the fans who love him as Jacob.


New Moon Production Weekly–From A Twilight Mom

As a person who works in production I get these lovely news letters called Production Weekly. They list all upcoming filming projects… WELL guess what was listed… I admit I started jumping up and down. I took the phone numbers and addresses off to avoid crazy phone calls :-)

“NEW MOON” Feature Film 01-15-09


STATUS – March 16 LOCATION – Vancouver – Italy

PRODUCER: Patrick Wachsberger WRITER: Melissa Rosenberg

DIRECTOR: Chris Weitz LP: Bill Bannerman PM: Barbara Kelly CAST: Robert Pattinson – Kristen Stewart – Taylor Lautner – Billy Burke – Gil Birmingham – Peter Facinelli – Elizabeth Reaser – Ashley Greene – Jackson Rathbone – Kellan Lutz – Nikki Reed

All is not well between demon-magnet Bella and Edward Cullen, her vampire Romeo. An innocent papercut at Edward’s house puts Bella in grave danger when various members of the Cullen family can barely resist their hunger at the smell of blood. The Cullens promptly leave town, afraid of endangering Edward’s beloved, and Bella sinks into an overwhelming depression. Months later, she finally emerges from her funk to rebuild her life, focusing on her friendship with besotted teen Jacob from the reservation. Bella’s unhealthy enthrallment to Edward leads her into dangerous and self-destructive behavior despite her new friends, and supernatural complications are bound to reappear. Bella’s being hunted by an evil vampire, and Jacob’s adolescent male rage turns out to be incipient lycanthropy: It seems many Quileute Indians become werewolves in thepresence of vampires, their natural enemies. (Release date Nov. 20, 2009)
