Summit Entertainment has added another cast member into "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse". The Hollywood Reporter has tipped that Jack Huston may join Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in the third installment of the vampire drama movies.

The nephew of actors Anjelica Huston and Danny Huston will play the part of Royce King II. The character is described as a human that lived during the Great Depression and was engaged to Rosalie Hale. Hence, it is likely that this 26-year-old will be sharing screen with Nikki Reed, the actress who plays Rosalie.

Jack Huston is the grandson of Academy Award-winning director John Huston. The English actor has appeared as Wulfric in 2008's "Outlander" and also starred in "The Garden of Eden", an adaptation of Ernest Hemingway novel which was published in 1986. He currently stars in ABC series "Eastwick", which will be premiered on Wednesday, September 23 at 10:00 P.M. ET.

Previously, Summit has recruited several other new cast members. Australian actor Xavier Samuel is tapped to play Riley, and Jodelle Ferland is set to portray a character which is described as "a vampire who has just been turned". Beside adding new members, the studio also replaced Rachelle Lefevre, who has starred as Victoria in "Twilight" and "The Twilight Saga's New Moon", with Bryce Dallas Howard.

"The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" is an adaptation of the third novel from Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series. Knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf, Bella Swan once again finds herself surrounded by danger while she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob in this movie. Directed by David Slade, the film has a U.S. release date schedule of June 30, 2010.
