Ashley Greene on Twilight and Skateland

Ashley Greene talked to MTV about how being Alice Cullen did and didn’t affect her set life on Skateland.

“”It was right before ‘New Moon.’ No one really knew who I was,” she recalled of the audition process. “We had done ‘Twilight,’ and I think maybe it had just come out. … Actually, I feel like it came out while ['Skateland'] was filming. And, of course, I got the news of how big it was. No one really knew who I was at that point, so I was just a girl who was in this movie that was buzzed about. I really had to work for it.”

See more on MTV.

What’s also really interesting is that this movie was shot roughly two years ago, and has Casey LaBow who plays Kate in Breaking Dawn in the cast.

Kellan Lutz Builds Houses in New Orleans With Rami Malek, Casey LaBow and Richard???


Kellan Lutz just Tweeted the above pictures and said, “Great day having cast mates Rami, Casey, and Richard come and get dirty with me, working on Rosalie’s house with the St. Bernard Project. ”

Kellan has done charity work with this group before with former girlfriend Anna Lynn McCord. According to the group’s website this is what they are all about:

Mission
The mission of the St. Bernard Project is to create housing opportunities so that Hurricane Katrina survivors can return to their homes and communities. The St. Bernard Project, a nonprofit, community-based organization carries out its mission through three primary programs: Rebuilding Program, Center for Wellness and Mental Health and Opportunity Housing Program.

History
The St. Bernard Project was started in March 2006 by Zack Rosenburg and Liz McCartney after the couple volunteered in St. Bernard in February. During their initial month of service, they met residents who were courageous, spirited and determined to rebuild their lives and community. They shared their stories, opened their homes and made Liz and Zack laugh, cry and question their own values. Inspired by the residents’ collective spirit, openness and fierce desire to rebuild their lives and community, Zack and Liz decided to create an organization that would provide vital resources and support to families in a seamless and timely manner. The St. Bernard Project’s programs and goals are directly driven by the needs expressed by the community members.”

We are assuming that Rosalie is the lady in the photo with the Tweetie Bird shirt. As for who the heck Richard is, we have no idea, but he sure is tall. Maybe, Dan Cudmore’s stand in?(EDITED: Consensus on Twitter seems to be that Richard is Kellan’s personal assistant.)

Breaking Dawn Actors in Photos Everywhere

Some lucky fans from Diario Twilight manged photos with Rami Malek (Benjamin) and Casey LaBow (Kate).

Meanwhile Ashley Greene and Peter Facinelli decided to have some fun at Disney.

Peter took his family to the California park, and Ashley visited the Florida park with boyfriend Joe Jonas.

The Denali Coven: Vegetarian Vampire Makeovers

Lexicon reader Adonis has transformed our latest cast members into vegetarian vampires. Click on their images to see them full-sized.

The Denali Coven: What You Need to Rent to Watch

So now that we have the entire Denali coven officially announced, here’s a listing of what we think are each person’s best roles.  We were actually pretty familiar with the women because Laura is a fan of Brit TV, LOST, and foreign film. Thanks to everyone on Twitter who gave us details about Christian Camargo, because we didn’t know much before and now he’s at the top of our rental queue this weekend!

Like the Cullens, the Denali Coven members are the only other vegetarian vampires. They are all strong willed and powerful. So check out some of their more famous, strong-willed roles below. (photo combo below created by Kary65 on Twitter)

First up is Christian Camargo. Christian is no acting lightweight. He regularly performs in live theater. Most recently his Orlando in As You Like, cast opposite his wife, (sorry ladies he’s married) won rave reviews. He also has a double connection to Summit/Twilight. He’s worked on Dexter co-written by Melissa Rosenberg, and he starred in the Academy Award Picture of the Year 2009, The Hurt Locker. Key to rent this weekend is Dexter Season 1 (Melissa Rosenberg is one of the writers) where he plays Rudy Cooper, better known as the menacing villain the Ice Truck Killer.

Next we have Maggie Grace who is best known for her appearance on LOST as Shannon. Shannon definitely has that edge that Irina needs. Check out her audition for the part on LOST on YouTube. For rentals this weekend you can check out LOST season 1, but if you want the film route go for Murder in Greenwich and Jane Austen Book Club. She’s also in Taken with Liam Neeson, but she plays more of a victim in that one.

MyAnna Buring is a regular on British TV. It took me (Laura) a second to recognize her because in a lot of her roles she’s more of a dirty than a platinum blonde of her headshots. Two keys show to see her in are Dr. Who the season 2 episode called The impossible planet. Definitely the kick-butt heroine in that one! Also good is Midsummer Murders (great series, hard to go wrong there,  but I haven’t seen this particular episode) the episode called Midsummer Life.

Casey LaBow is probably best remembered from CSI where she played a needy girl with daddy issues who becomes attached to Mac. For rental you want Forbidden Fruit and Dead Inside season 4 and No Good Deed season 5. Her Twilight connection is being in Skateland with Ashley Greene.

Mia Maestro who is from Argentina is best know for Alias where she played Nadia Santos from 2004-2006. As far as English language film, there’s the remake of Poseidon. If you don’t mind the subtitles, or are fluent in Spanish you want to see The Motorcycle Diaries.
