In 'The Twilight Saga's New Moon', Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will be joined by 'X-Men: The Last Stand' actor Cameron Bright and Academy Award-nominee Graham Greene among others.
The official cast list for "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" has finally been unraveled. Through a press release put out Wednesday, April 15, Summit Entertainment announced who are joining Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner as the "Twilight" sequel's new cast members in addition to providing confirmation to the previously announced members.
"The Volturi include Charlie Bewley as Demetri, Jamie Campbell Bower as Caius, Daniel Cudmore as Felix, Christopher Heyerdahl as Marcus, all Volturi enforcers," so read the press release of the Volturi members. "Dakota Fanning plays Jane, a high-ranking and powerful Volturi member, and Cameron Bright is Alec, her brother. Noot Seear plays Volturi member Heidi. Michael Sheen plays Aro, the Volturi leader."
On the Quileute Indian Nation cast, Summit revealed that there are two additional cast members. "Dances With Wolves" actor Graham Greene will appear as Harry Clearwater, the Quileute tribal leader and an old friend of Bella's father Charlie, while Canadian actress Tinsel Korey is going to star as Emily, the fiancee of Sam Uley.
The announcement also affirmed the return of several original cast members. "Rejoining the movie are Ashley Greene as Alice, Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Kellan Lutz as Emmett, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Edi Gathegi as Laurent and Rachelle Lafevre as Victoria," it was noted in the press release.
Quickly after the outing of the press release, MTV reported that there is one original cast missing from the list, Billy Burke who plays Bella Swan's police officer father, Charlie, in the first vampire drama. Putting down any possible speculation that Burke's character has been scrapped from the sequel, MTV reported an insider has confirmed that the actor will be returning as Charlie.
"The Twilight Saga's New Moon" follows Bella Swan as she is left devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love Edward. But, her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black. Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and she finds her loyalties tested. The movie has officially begun its principal photography in Vancouver with the aim for November 20 U.S. release.
