New Moon Casting Recap & Michael Sheen Discussion


The Examiner's Amanda Bell, aka The Twilight Examiner, has a fabulous recap on where we are with the New moon casting. She reminds us who has already been cast, who would like to be cast, what roles still need to be filled , and examines the casting choice of Michael Sheen as Aro:

With the addition of the likes of Dakota Fanning and Michael Sheen, we can definitely surmise that we are no longer dealing with low expectations from Summit Entertainment, or a low budget for that matter. Perhaps, rightly, we can put to bed our concerns over the accuracy of the book-to-film translation (as, we saw, most of them stemmed from worry that the studio would underestimate our staying power as Twilight fans). Though some fans have shown disappointment with the look of Jamie Campbell-Bower (see here) for Caius, perhaps the casting folks on the project got it right with this one. After all, Michael Sheen, a forty year old man, is clearly not a kid (which was one of the major complaints over the choice of Campbell-Bower).

This article is a must read for Twilighters. Read it HERE.
