With the first trailer for The Twilight Saga: New Moon barely 24 hours old, news has already leaked of casting breakdowns for three characters in the third Twilight film, Eclipse. Casting directors are looking for actors to take on at least three roles for the film, to be directed by David Slade (30 Days of Night):
* Riley “a handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria [and] plays an integral role in Victoria’s attempt to murder Bella Swan.”
* Seth Clearwater, a member of the La Push werewolf clan and a “tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin [who] idolizes Jacob.”
* Leah Clearwater, Seth’s big sister, and the only woman in La Push, who 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.”
Casting directors are reportedly looking to cast the Clearwater siblings with Native American or First Nation actors. (E! Online first reported these casting details.) The film is due in theaters in June 2010.
