Catching Up With the Cast: Pre-Emmy Awards

Various cast members swung by the pre-Emmy Awards parties and swag rooms this weekend.

Melissa Rosenberg had this to say about Breaking Dawn when asked by Marc Malkin over at E!

“First up, Breaking Dawn. Rosenberg is not allowed to could not confirm she’s going to be tackling the script. “That’s still up in the air,” she said. “We’re still talking and nothing’s been decided.”

Rachelle Lefevre told E!

“To be honest, I sort of feel like I have everything. I have an amazing boyfriend, I love my house, I’m wearing a great Jay Godfrey dress and I’m at an Emmy party.”

Justin Chon Spoke about David Slade

“He’s done pretty dark films so that’s where I see [Eclipse] really gravitating towards—more of a dark kind of moody film. Just shooting the scenes that I’m in, the mood is definitely different. David is very set on how he wants this movie to be portrayed. It’s a lot more refined and maybe not as loose as the last two—at least for us humans. I can only imagine what he’s doing with everyone else.”

Rachelle LeFevere Update 7/31

Just keeping everyone updated here, and that’s to say in the last 24 hours there has been no further comment from either Rachelle or Summit. Conspiracy theories abound on all angles.  Hard to know which have merit and which don’t.

As far as we can tell, Marc Malken on E! has a pretty good statement here as to where this is in all probability going:

“Rachelle Lefevre and Summit Entertainment’s fangs are retracting a little bit today—at least in public, that is.

I’m told the actress formerly known as Twilight’s Victoria isn’t planning on releasing any more statements like the one she sent me yesterday. Same for Summit—the corporate lips are sealed.

Why? Because now the bloody mess is apparently being hashed out by lawyers.”

In as much as neither side has issued anything in the last 24 hours, this thing, as we said in our position statement, is all going to boil down to what was in a contract and subsequent verbal/written agreements. In other words, bring in the lawyers. Now that doesn’t mean a court date, we are surmising phone calls, meetings, etc. which will probably result in some settlement with a nondisclosure clause. That tends to be how disputes like this go down.

Could it go to some sort of public trial if they don’t reach an agreement? Technically yes, but we would doubt it would come to that. In our opinion, it just wouldn’t make sense on at least two levels: 1) time 2) money. So, we would anticipate that the two parties will hash it out behind closed doors.

So what do we think will happen short term? Probably not a lot of communication on this specifically from either end. Again we are making an assumption here based on the facts as presented by each side in their respective public statements, but it would seem logical to us that if  there are legal teams involved, the first piece of advice any lawyer gives their client is “keep your mouth shut”.  The only thing that we feel safe in saying for sure here, is that the respective legal teams will be earning their keep.

Billy Burke Comments to Ted Casablanca

Ted Casablanca of E! caught up with Billy Burke at a charity poker tournament at the Playboy mansion and asked him a few questions about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Billy placed 20th overall in the tournament (according to Billy’s Twitter).  Billy blamed not doing better on the “distractions”.

Here’s some of what Billy said to E! Ted Casablanca hasn’t spun another Robsten story out of it.

When asked about the pregnancy rumors, “Rob is probably pregnant with my child. It’s funny no one picked up on me and Rob’s affair.”

How do you think Rob’s handling all this attention? He seems stressed out on the set of his new movie, Remember Me… Think R.Pattz would ever get totally fed up with it and quit acting altogether?

“You mean pulling a Joaquin Phoenix? I doubt he would go that route. He’s got a lot of talent. He’s got his art, as opposed to being bogged down by all this bulls–t. I think he’s handling it well. I feel a little bit for [Rob and Kristen]. I think [the attention] was unexpected by both of them.”

Another Cover Shot For Robert Pattinson

Mark Malkin over at E! has unearthed the following information:

Robert Pattinson has another magazine cover coming up—and thankfully, it’s not some far-fetched tabloid bullcrap this time around.

Mr. Pattinson, I’m told, has landed himself on the cover of probably the most coveted of monthlies—Vanity Fair!”

You can check out Mark’s full story on E!.

E! Also has the details on the Teen choice awards where Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene are confirmed as presenters and Robert Pattinson (barring filming issues) is also rumored to be there.

Twilight may have been ignored at the Oscars, Golden Globes and the like, but the vampire movie is scoring where it really counts—with the kids!

The Robert Pattinson romance earned an even dozen 2009 Teen Choice Award nominations, including Choice Movie: Drama and Choice Movie: Romance.”

Eclipse Casting

Marc Malkin over at E! got a look at the Eclipse casting notice that just started to circulate.

Here are some of the descriptions shared by Marc:

“Riley “is a handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria,” the notice reads. He’s in his early to mid 20s and “plays an integral role in Victoria’s attempt to murder Bella Swan.”

Seth Clearwater is a “tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin. Seth idolizes Jacob.

She[Leah Clearwater] is tall and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair. She would be considered gorgeous if not for the perpetual scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues.”

Also, according to Marc, Rob was invited to do the musical number at the awards, but the timing just didn’t work out. Grab the video here because E! embed code is way messed up.

In answer to what will probably be the next set of  “how can I audition” questions to hit our inbox, if you are already “in the business” no doubt this is something your agent/manager can assist you with.  As far as we know, they are not up to extras casting at this point. No doubt any extras used will be Vancouver locals. If you have never been involved in the acting business before, don’t get scammed by the various ads stating “Twilight casting now” it’s a scam to sell you acting lessons and headshots. They aren’t in any way connected to the film. If you want some legit information on casting, visit Lana Veenker’s blog. It has a ton of info, Lana was invovled with the casting of Twilight (the first movie).

New Moon in New Issue of EW

E! previews the article appearing in EW about the New Moon filming.

New Moon Clips to Debut on MTV

According to Mark Malken over at E!, New Moon clips will debut at the MTV movie awards. If you remember, last year’s awards was where the ballet studio clip first debuted.  Also, like last year, Robert Pattinson. Taylor Lautner, and Kristen Stewart will be there to present the clip.

The differences this year:

  1. Russel Brand won’t be there to interrupt the cast as they speak
  2. Kristen, Rob, and Taylor are all up for MTV awards
  3. Hopefully the backlot won’t catch fire causing multiple security and logistics changes

Speaking of those awards, get voting on MTV! Twilight is a little lacking in the tallies!

Most people think Comic Con was the first time the cast got a taste of the fan interest, the reality was it started on the MTV Movie Awards in 2008. Check out this video from a year ago, before Rob and Kristen fully realized just how passionate the fans were.

Kellan Lutz on Twilight Romance

Kellan Lutz got asked by E! about the supposed off screen romances going on among Twilight cast members that are making the tabloid circuit.
