mariem_1: Casting Wank
Link provided by a mouse on wank_report
There's been a casting call
sent out for New Moon
and oh noes, Taylor Lautner is mentioned before RPattz in the cast list (most likely because there is a lot of Jacob in New Moon
and Edward is hardly in the book).
Many Edward/Bella shippers from lion_lamb
didn't take it well and wankery ensued
Wow, seeing Taylor's name listed before Robert's was like a little punch in the gut.
Yeah, it kinda made me sick :(
Yes, i feel sick right now.
Ugh, man, this is what I am NOT looking forward too. -_-
ew. it's just plain wrong. :(
IDK. If seeing Taylor's name before Rob's was a little weird..imagine if the movie poster for New Moon was Bella and Jacob? Though, there's a bigger chance it'll be Edward and Bella.
*shudders at the thought of a J/B poster* :(
Don't even mention it, it would be a turn off.
I don't even like myself right now for even thinking about it. -_-
Eeewww...now I'm gonna have nightmares...
I don't give a fuck if Edward's part is small in NM, Taylor's SHOULD NEVER come before RPattz, NEVER.
The series is about Edward, Bella, and Jacob. It's a love triangle.
Regardless of whether you're Team Edward or Team Jacob or even Team Switzerland like I, Jacob is central to the story, especially in New Moon, and that is why he gets billing. Since he has a (if only marginally) larger role in New Moon than Edward, he gets higher billing. This is Hollywood crediting logic, not a personal snub to Edward/Bella fans.
For crying out loud.
Somewhere Rob is laughing already.
The series is not about a love triangle. It's about Edward and Bella.
That's not Hollywood crediting logic, actually. The order of billing is probably already written into contracts, and things like "he has slightly less screentime in this one" will have very little to do with it. "Taylor deserves to have top billing since Rob gets top billing in the other 3" is also not Hollywood crediting logic.
I love New Moon and I'm so exciting for it. But ugh, the thought of having Jacob's face much bigger than Edward in the movie poster is making me abit sick. Not against Jacob tbh, I just can't get myself to get used to that.... yet.
Well, hot damn. Taycob is moving up. WTF. I feel befuddled now.
Someone needs to get some serious smackage and learn where his place is. *Smackkkk*
For real! The damn boy (Jacob) is growing on me (because Taylor is just plain adorable) but he will ever overshadow Edward in terms of his place in the series.
Yeah, same here. I fell in love with Jacob in Breaking Dawn (dont ask me how) and once I saw him in the movie I liked him even more.. Now? Not so much. They better change the order up on the official movie page or other wise there will be a lot of angry fan girls out there and you don't want to tick them off.
Aaaaaahh.. Taylor before Rob?! 0_o
I know, it's just not right. :(
Taylor needs to get bitch slapped and learn where his place is!!
this post is just preview for all the taycob resentment that's gonna be going down in the coming months haha :P i imagine they'll put a lot more edward throughout it than in the book. i'm just saying, if we only get 25-30 of rob screentime, there will be hell to pay. ;)
We also have a flounce on third page

Edward is hardly in the book
I'll bet that they end up expanding his part by adding parallel scenes showing whatever he's off doing while Bella pines away for him. Poor RPattz. He doesn't seriously think he's going to get off easy, does he?
Sun, Nov. 30th, 2008 02:35 pm (UTC)
My money is on this, too. Due to the hordes of rabid RPattz fangirls there's no way in Hell the studio will let him sit New Moon out for the most part. Prepare for lots of silent, misty, broody, soulful, brokenhearted shots of Emoward.

And - as much as I hate to say it - it even makes sense. The books are all from Bella's POV - and first person POV at that. So the book couldn't show what Edward was doing while he was away. (unless done in a flashback as told by Edward - I don't know I haven't read the books and have no intention of reading them.) A movie would not have that problem.

Like Liv Tyler in The Two Towers, only with way more makeup.

They never do.

Oh, lovely. D:
Keep it classy, Twitards.

It seems especially dumb for them to freak out considering that the studio has said publically that TL isn't even signed on for the movie yet, so I doubt they're putting a ton of thought into the cast order for a random casting sheet. Relax, I mean, damn, they've already won this war in every conceivable way. Let the Jacob fans have their 5 minutes of smugness before the carpet gets yanked away from them when RPattz is suddenly in every other scene in New Moon.

It would be really weird if Jacob suddenly had a huge, giant head. I wouldn't be able to get used to that either.

I actually find this... extremely obnoxious. Lay off the actor. Poor kid isn't Jacob Black. He just plays him in a
Sun, Nov. 30th, 2008 06:46 pm (UTC)
Poor aeteananke. She's trying to bring the sanity! Sadly, this is a futile endeavor.
Mon, Dec. 1st, 2008 06:27 am (UTC)
It missed!Other Twilighters
I don't know where it goes from there, except the other Twilighters end up gnawing on their own tails and I hope aeteananke gets away.

I think the guy who plays Billy Black should totally receive top billing. (Isn't he that guy who plays Generic American Indian Guy in basically every film ever?)
Tue, Dec. 2nd, 2008 12:51 am (UTC)
I had to go look it up because I thought you meant Graham Greene
for a few moments there. Who really has played Generic American Indian Guy all over the place. But is also awesome, so...
Mon, Dec. 1st, 2008 04:12 am (UTC)
Oh, I'm totally going to try for the casting call.
Who knows? Maybe I'll end up meeting Rpatz.
Mon, Dec. 1st, 2008 04:13 am (UTC)
Ah, Twilight feminism at work. First the vampires must tear out the engines of their wimmens' cars and now the werewolves gotta learn their place wrt the vampires.
*snort* I sort of wish it would devolve into Underworld... Blood, guns, and vampires > sparkling vampires
Mon, Dec. 1st, 2008 05:31 am (UTC)
They've fused now? I couldn't get beyond that.
Mon, Dec. 1st, 2008 06:28 am (UTC)
If you rearrange the letters, he becomes boy cat! Clearly this actor also played the little boy cat in Psych.
Tue, Dec. 2nd, 2008 02:23 am (UTC)
Oh, the little boy cat! They should replace the werewolves with little boy cats. That would be exponentially better.
Mon, Dec. 1st, 2008 10:05 pm (UTC)
....that poor actor.
Tue, Dec. 2nd, 2008 01:15 am (UTC)
It's funny how billing works! Methinks that the hardcore Edward fantwats have willed the mostly sparkle-free plot of New Moon
out of their heads.
Tue, Dec. 2nd, 2008 05:51 am (UTC)
Yes. That uppity kid should learn his place. He is getting in the way of the blinding sparkling of Edward and Bella's love. This is in no way racially distressing.

These people have ridiculously weak constitutions if the thought of Taylor Lautner's face being bigger than RPattz's on a poster makes them sick.
Just another tick in the box for "proof modern medicine interrupted the natural order of things by circumventing natural selection."
