More Join ‘New Moon’ Cast?

Published 5 years ago by , Updated August 14th, 2013 at 5:34 pm,

It seems like every week we’re getting new casting rumors for New Moon, and this week is no different. The Twilight sequel is looking to add another 90210-er to the cast. AnnaLynne McCord is up for the role of Heidi, a “fisher” who attracts humans to be slaughtered.

Though Heidi isn’t a major character in the book, she fits the role of “bait” rather well. Bella describes her as having “exceptional, unforgettable” beauty with stunning legs, long hair and violet eyes. She’s said to use her looks to bring humans for the Volturi vampires to eat. The role is more of a cameo, E! Online sources say, but doesn’t she fit the bill?

There wasn’t any official word from McCord’s rep or the studio in charge, Summit Entertainment, but she’d probably fit right in. Her 90210 costar Kellan Lutz, who’s rumored to be her boyfriend in real life, already plays Emmett Cullen and will return for the sequel.

Also in Twilight news, Dakota Fanning spoke to MTV News, about playing the role of Jane. The petite blonde with an angelic-face is a perfect fit, looks-wise, she’s just missing the crimson irises. Casting her as an evil Volturi guard would be a considerable leap in talent but she said “I wouldn’t say it’s 100 percent, but it’s definitely, obviously a possibility and something that would be really cool… I really hope it works out.

If Fanning takes the role she was offered without an audition, she would have the power to inflict immense pain on those who cross her–a role quite different than any role she’s had. Though she hasn’t read all of Stephenie Meyer’s novels yet, the child star had some knowledge of the role.

The part that I play gets to interact with a lot of the characters, so that would be cool. [The Volturi] are kind of mean. I think it would be definitely a different part than I’ve ever played — and I’d get to be a little evil for once.

Director Chris Weitz is expected to start shooting next month in Vancouver and then onto Italy before the Nov. 20th release date.

  1. Im not a big fan of AnnaLynne McCord after her role in NIP Tuck but she probably would fit the part well.

  2. Is that picture supposed to make her attractive or alluring?

    Geez if she looked at me that way I’d laugh my butt off…she’d have to pick me up off the ground and carry me to the vampires because I’d be laughing so hard…Why do young actresses mistake sultry for sleepy?

  3. I’ve watched McCord on Nip Tuck and 90210 and she clearly is a one note actress. Although she plays that note fairly well.

  4. @greenknight333

    LMAO

  5. By the time this movie actually starts shooting we will have like 10 more casting rumors :P

    I dont care if she has the part it isnt a really big one in the book and prob not the movie either. I think Heidi speaks a total of 5 times in the book.

    Waiting for the next update :D

  6. Too many known actors will take away from the detail value of the movie. The focus is Bella and Edward. I think this is too much of a distraction. For the Native American casts I hope they use tall strong looking girls. Who ever has a wolf for a boyfriend should be pretty but tough looking. So far the stars who have tried out, dont cut it.

  7. Yeah I watched AnnaLynne on Nip Tuck. I loved her evil role on there, and am a big fan of hers. I think that she would do justice to the part of Heidi. She is a great actress and even better her boyfriend Kellan Klutz is in the second movie also. Cool!!!! I can’t wait to see the movie. I am a Major Twerd!!!!

  8. Annalynne would be great as Heidi because she knows how to play an evil role from Nip Tuck.

  9. annalyne is soooo preeeety…

  10. Annalynne would be a awful choice. She is a horrible actress. i think the casting director should stick to low key actors. because none of the big time known actors wanted to be in Twilight. they thought it was a joke. but now that its hugh. everybody wants a part. please its so pathetic!
