Shiloh Fernandez is the star of Catherine Hardwicke’s new film, ‘Red Riding Hood,’ but a lot of you have already heard of him before because he was almost cast as Edward Cullen in Twilight. In his new interview with Interview Magazine, Shiloh talks Twilight, Robert Pattinson, Ashley Greene and his film ‘Skateland’ (which he starred alongside Ashley).
JACOBS: How close were you to getting the role of Edward Cullen in Twilight?
FERNANDEZ: You’ll have to ask Catherine. It appears that I was closer than I maybe remember. I did have a screen test and signed contracts and all that. But the thing that came out of it, whether I was second runner-up or not, was that Catherine and I liked each other, and she was gracious enough to keep me in mind for other things. I really don’t know how close I was to getting the part in Twilight. Did I want the part? I did. But I don’t think I was right or ready for it. And I don’t think anybody knew that it was going to be what it’s turned out to be. When Riding Hood came along, I thought it was a much better fit.
JACOBS: Is it strange to consider Robert Pattinson’s life? How that madness could have been yours?
FERNANDEZ: I don’t think it ever could have been mine. I think it would have been really, really bad for me. He seems like a really neat guy who’s handled himself amazingly well. I’m very grateful at this point that I didn’t get it. I remember when my agent called to tell me I didn’t get it. And then the next day I had an audition for something else. [laughs] When it came out, I was doing a movie with Ashley Greene, who’s in Twilight, and we went to the movies and watched it. It is a funny experience but I can’t say that it was one of the movies I was heartbroken over not getting.
JACOBS: What’s your role in Skateland?
FERNANDEZ: I really like that movie. That was the last movie I did before Red Riding Hood. It really spoke to me because it’s about this kid from a small town who’s not ready to make any decisions about life. And I think that that’s probably where I was, and if I hadn’t been forced to go to college, I might have stayed in Ukiah as a dishwasher at this Italian restaurant, Mario’s, where I worked all through high school, and not really made a whole lot of decisions for myself. It’s about a kid who goes through that exact same thing, you know? He’s kind of settled in his routine when a series of events takes place and he has the power to move on. It’s worth it for him to go out in the world and try to succeed outside of what’s comfortable for him.
As most of you know, Catherine Hardwicke is the director behind the first Twilight movie. Now, she is the name behind the movie ‘Red Riding Hood.’ We showed you the first trailer in November here and now we have the second one below. Enjoy!
Catherine Hardwicke is the amazing director behind the first Twilight movie (I know there are differing opinions regarding the ‘amazing’ part, but I LOVED Catherine’s work, personally). And now she’s taken another fantasy to film with ‘Red Riding Hood.’ (You can see the official Trailer here). MTV has pointed out some similarities between Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight, and Catherine’s ‘Red Riding Hood.’ Check it out:
I think they have a similar feel so far as Catherine is the master of working with outdoor scenes and creating that cold, but warm feel (if that makes sense).
We showed you the first stills of Catherine Hardwicke’s ‘Red Riding Hood’ movie the other day here, and now we have the first official trailer. Billy Burke – who plays Bella Swan’s Dad in the Twilight Saga, Charlie Swan – is also in ‘Red Riding Hood.’ We showed you pics of him on the set a while back here.
This movie looks sooo amazing!! And has so many things in common with Twilight: Director (Catherine Hardwicke), Billy Burke (Charlie Swan), Shiloh Fernandez (who plays Peter in Red Riding Hood) was a finalist to play the role of Edward Cullen in the Twilight movie, which was obviously eventually given to Robert Pattinson.
