“Joining the cast of the third installment of “Twilight,” one of the highest-grossing movie franchises of all time, would seem to be like jumping into a hyper-speed version of double Dutch — while wearing roller skates. The action figures, the T-shirts, the ubiquitous paparazzi, the equally ubiquitous (and even more aggressive) Twihards and the rest of the hoopla surrounding the vampire trilogy‚ how could it not make a newcomer anxious?
