Eclipse Movie hottie Xavier Samuel was interviewed by Hot30 where he discussed his role, the audition process and more. There’s even some (small) mention of Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart in the end! I can’t believe how fast time passes – we’re already reporting Eclipse Movie news and the New Moon Movie isn’t even out just yet! Enjoy.
Summit Entertainment has tapped Australian newcomer Xavier Samuel to play Riley in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third film in the burgeoning franchise based on Stephenie Meyer‘s mega selling novels, according to the Hollywood Reporter‘s Risky Business blog.
As fans of the series know, Riley starts off as a plain, old human college student, only to fall under the spell of the increasingly vengeful Victoria and, as a newborn vampire, join her crusade against Bella.
Among the names bandied about for the Riley role were Tom “Draco Malfoy” Felton and Channing Tatum, whom Meyer once said would play the part “beautifully.”
WOW, I’m so stoked to see that they’re already getting the cast members rolling! I remember when they started releasing New Moon cast member info – and now we’re onto Eclipse already! As for Xavier Samuel - he looks as though he’d make an amazing Riley!
