Solomon Trimble Not In New Moon

From Solomon’s MySpace

My agent heard from Summit Entertainment today that I will not be reprising the role of Sam in “New Moon.” While I will cherish the experience of being involved in the first film, I am looking forward to many new opportunities in the future and would like to thank everyone for their support.


  1. What a shame.

  2. I feel bad for him. It sounded like he really wanted to be in it. ๐Ÿ™

    This is really making me anxious about the casting list! I hope whoever they put in his place has there HEART into the Twilight series and is not just there for the fame and money ๐Ÿ™ U will be missed Solomon, at least by me ๐Ÿ™

  4. Natasha says:

    Oh no!
    I don’t like that!!
    Thank you very much, Solomon, for portraying Sam in the first movie! I hope they have a good reason for casting a new Sam!

    aaaaangry faaaaaace

  6. I dont like this…seems to me like he always was doing his homework and trying to make the representation of Quileutes as accurate as possible…he also looked the part and played his small part very well. i dont trust any new people that are trying out just because of the success of twilight

    Im sorry for you Solomon we will miss you, you did an amazing job as Sam

    Summit…dont screw up…

  7. Shannon says:

    No! No! No!

    I loved Solomon! I wonder who Sam will be now…

    I am so sorry to hear this. A big thank you to Solomon who seemed to really be involved with this role.

  9. annieohhhhyes says:

    Nooo! Oh, he would have been an amazing Sam!
    I’m really starting to worry about NM. I hope that it won’t fall prey to the “sequels are never as good as the first ones” curse.

  10. Oh no, this is awful news. Good luck to Solomon on his future acting career. What a shame.

  11. little bonbon says:

    that’s not fair…
    i liked him

  12. I’m soooo pissed because I loved Solomon as Sam, he’s exactly as I pictured Sam in the book!!

  13. Whille I feel bad for Solomon I’m happy he’s no longer Sam. I thought be was terrible in twilight. He had one line and it sounded so rehearsed! I’m sure he’s a nice enough guy and that he really wanted it, but tons of actors wanted a role in this movie. Plus Taylor is so much more ripped than him now! The movie needed an upgrade.

  14. damn . Soloman is a perfect sam ๐Ÿ™

  15. Soloman looked more authentic Native American than Taylor (even though I know that Taylor has some N.A. in him) and they did not look like they were from the same reservation. So, if they can make the Quilette boys look like they all are from the same ancestory, that would be good.

    I dont care if he is replaced because he had such a small role in Twilight.

  16. I can’t picture anyone else playing Sam, he seamed to be really well suited to the role, his personality matched the sense of maturity and respect that Sam has.

    Nobody will be able to match the knowledge Solomon brought to the role ๐Ÿ™

  17. Oh well this is just poop! Way to F up Summit!

  18. I’m disappointed to hear Summit’s decision not have Solomon cast in New Moon.I wish Solomon all the best in the future with his acting career. With that beautiful energy and personality he has he’ll go far in whatever endeavors he pursues. All the best to you and much love your way ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Rachel for ONCE I think i agree with part of what you say.haha except i said the same thing about Taylor once that i didnt mind him being recast casue his role in Twilight wasnt so big. and cause no matter how much he works out he will still look 16 in his facial features. BUT i got over it and am giving him a chance
    anyways and for ME i am PISSED that Solomon isn’t going to be Sam in N.M. What the heck?why would they want someone else for the role? like they didnt already have to find enough other people to fill new roles? Well at least Krys better still be Quil though. i actually am more upset that Solomon is being recast than I think i would have been if Taylor would have been recast.
    UGH. now if it was Solomons choice i guess it’s o.k but if not…….SO LAME.

  20. Thank you Soloman ! You did an awesome job and good luck to you in the future !!!

  21. Luna Nueva says:

    You have got to be kidding me? like they didnt already have enough new roles to fill. How seriously dissapointing and annoying. I hope at least Krys is still playing Quil. UGH I think i am more upset that Sam’s role is being re-cast than i would have been if Taylor was re-cast.
    UGH. The next Sam better be Amazing.

  22. soozabooza54 says:

    As much as I love Solomon for his dedication to the project, I never really considered the role he played in Twilight to be Sam. Same goes for the guy who “played Embry.” Sorry, guys.

    Why I like this news? – It means that official casting for all these parts is going to come out really soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Luna Nueva says:

    I mean i hope Krys is still playing Embry

  24. Very disapointed and sad that Solomon will not be returning as Sam…. I wonder if they will let Kris still be Embry? Worried for the new cast and the future of the Twilight Saga… ๐Ÿ™

  25. deepthink says:

    This is really sucky! I really liked Solomon as Sam. I hope whoever replaced him does a good job!

  26. I’m very bummed. I loved Solomon and was looking forward to his work in NM. Everything happens for a reason. Solomon, read Jeremiah 29:11. God has a plan for you. Maybe He has something wonderful in store that we just can’t see now. You will be terribly missed. I look forward to whatever the future holds for you. Someone has some big shoes to fill!

  27. say its not so… :*( solomon will be missed and it will be the loss of the movie for not having him come back. solomon i wish you the best of luck

  28. I think this is an outrage. He wouldve made a great Sam. I was all excited to see him cut his hair off!

  29. sillygirl says:

    I think they are looking for good acting skills for New moon, and are not as focused on the looks. They are both important, but a good actor can pull off the right look, so I guess I’m alright with this. I just wish they would tell us the whole cast already. Aren’t they suppose to be filming right now? Why are they keeping this so secret? Well, I know why…it’s just really annoying.

  30. I’m not surprised, nor am I disappointed. Sam is the Alpha of the pack, he needs to be big and imposing, a dominant threat. Solomon was never those things in my mind. Him and Krys both were just random friends of Jacobs to me.

  31. WELL..Bring on a photo of the New Sam then already. It better be good if he is replacing Sam.
    I still can’t beieve anoying he is being replaced.

  32. xPoppunkPrincess says:

    oh my gosh………..


    lets hope new sam is nice looking! ^_________^

  33. Oh and for those of you that are saying that Sam is supposed to look bigger and more dominant and such anyway…well Jacob is supposed to not look like a 16 year old boy who just worked out really hard for a few months but he is suppose to also be really tall and look 25,BUT they didnt re-cast him did they? I have gotten over that though and am willing to give HIM a chance. I WISH they would have dont the same for Soloman.

  34. xPoppunkPrincess says:



    Dose that mean they’re not reusing Kyrs!?!?!?!


    I LIKE KYRS!!!!



    AND HOW LONG TILL WE FINS OUT KYRS’S FATE!?!??!?!?!?!?!?! ๐Ÿ™

  35. Cali, I agree. Sam is a strong visual part, Solomon was too tiny and skinny somehow. Solomon, all the luck to you!

  36. Yea i see some peop say that Sam was supposed to be Bigger and more dominant looking and stuff BUT Jacob is also Not supposed to still look taller and at least 24 and not like a 16 year old boy that just worked out really hard over the summer BUT Taylor isnt being re-cast is he? Its fine by me now that i have gotten over it but i just WISH they would have given Soloman the same chance. If Jacob doesnt have to look exactly like the one in the book why should Solomon? I think he would have made a great Sam! He looked Dominant to me.

  37. I HATE IT WHEN DIRECTORS AND PRODUCERS DO THIS! Now we all have to suffer with a new Sam. What the heck is wrong with all the ppl who hated his acting? I hate when they have to replace one of the actors it’s just not the same, and very confussing now ppl are going to be like. Hey that wasn’t the sam that was in the first one. I already had to deal with one person sitting behind me through Twilight the second time who kept saying hey that wasn’t in the book, or hey wasn’t this suppose to be in it. It was so annoying!

  38. Cali and waht if Soloman wasnt as big as was metnioned in the book or as dominant looking as you like. Jacob also isnt supposed to look like a 16 year old boy who just worked out really hard over the summer but look at least 24 but Taylor is still playing the part. so why should Solomon have to look exactly the part if Taylor doesnt?

  39. ForJazz926 says:

    I’m sure he did his research and everything – but that shouldn’t be the reason someone gets cast or not. If that were the case – you might as well cast any screaming fan who has obsessed over Quileute culture since reading the book. So while I appreciate his dedication to the character, I am glad they are casting someone else. I thought he looked skinny and sickly – not large and in charge like Sam.

    And no – they are not casting Krys either. That’s what I read this morning. I think they are looking for more “rough, rowdy” characters to play the wolf pack.

  40. Audrey/Edward says:

    I actually really liked Krys. I was on the fence about Sam, though.

    But now I’m really worried as to who WILL be playing Sam. I think they just want bigger names in the next two movies, since the saga is so insanely huge now. I kind of wish we could go back to the old days when nobody knew what Twilight was, but that they still made a movie.

  41. Audrey/Edward says:

    That was supposed to be *Solomon. Not Sam. whoops.

  42. Maybe when it came down to it he just didn’t have the acting skills.who knows..but hten again there is No way he could have been worse that Cam as James.Dand i liked Solomon AND Krys. He should have played Jacob.

  43. That really sucks. I think it’s a tad stupid for Summit to hire anyone new to play characters that appeared first in Twilight, that the fans have become invested in [any said actor from Twilight is now synonymous with their character]. Although he played a small role, Trimble really did embody the “Sam Uley” in my mind. I wonder who they have who can do the role better? I hope Summit knows what they are doing…

  44. I really hope they don’t decide to start recasting with each movie. That can really make any sequel suck.

  45. Yes Krys would have also made a really good Jacob.and i agree Solomon couldnt have done any worse than Cam as James,that whole tilting his head all the time bugged.haha. sigh,I wish Cillina Murphey would have been James he is waaay scarier.Oh well, that time has passed.
    Well i am dissapointed but i guess i will just have to see how the New Quiluete clan turn out. They BETTER be SMOKING.
    Oh and i think they be they arent giving out pictures of the new characters and such cause they know us Twi-fans by now and how we freak out and scrutinize every detail of EVERYTHING.. so maybe they just dont want to deal with it.Ha i wouldnt blame them.hee-hee

  46. There they go and do it again. The real question comes down to, Why?

  47. Well..there is summits First major screw up for N.M. Bravo. I hope it all works out in the long run though. It had better.

  48. This is horrid!!! I loved Sol’s passion for playing Sam! He was so into playing that character! Summit (or the actor they cast) has their job cut out for them to convince us that they did the right thing in casting. This really, really stinks…. ๐Ÿ™

  49. xI-MustBeDreamingx says:

    I liked him as Sam.
    If they replace him, It’ll confuse people.
    -muttering angrily to self-

    With that they better pick more unknown actors than last time, because they totally screwed up twilight with that.
