“There’s a good idea,” I think while stepping into a Williamsburg coffee shop to meet Chaske Spencer, the actor who plays Sam Uley in the Twilight films, “Hipster werewolves. Remember to pitch this TV concept.” That was before I saw Chaske, who is 6’1 and the guy next to Taylor Lautner looking menacingly hot in all the Twilight: New Moon posters: he smiled and waved me over.
“Haven’t we met before?” he starts out. We hadn’t, but if hipsterdom is defined as being too cool and aloof, Chaske doesn’t fit the bill at all. Like Sam, he is Native-American, and spends most of his down time on the Twilight set hanging out with the other wolves (Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Bronson Pelletier), but the similarities end there. Chaske (pronounced Chaz-KAY) is warm and laughs at everything, uses his fame to spotlight issues in the Native-American community, and has a stunningly wide breadth of topics he’s interested in. (He was on Parker Spitzer last night to talk about Prince William’s engagement, Washington politics, and his charity organization Shift the Power to the People.)
There is one other quality, of course, that Chaske shares with Sam. They are both really really, ridiculously good looking.”
