I'm Sorry But...

Taren just informed me there are rumours that Vanessa Anne Hudgens may be cast as Leah Clearwater.

OMG I may be jumping to the gun on this, but please say it ain't so. Leah is supposed to be kickass and cool and awesome. Vanessa is just...eh.

On the other hand, why do I care? I really should stop blogging about Twilight once a week...

ugh! I really hope that's not true, I'm not a big fan of the twilight movies, but they would get so much worse with vh on them

Reader Rabbit said...

I'm starting to think that you have a secret and peverse obsession with Twilight...

Just kidding.

And they better NOT cast her...

Amee said...

Wow, I can't imagine her as Leah. Vanessa's way too girly. Unless she can ugly it up, I don't think she could pull it off.

Taren said...

I think we know why you write these things. You think the Twilight series are the best books ever! You told me so yourself. You said that SM has done more for feminism than Gloria Steinem, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony could do in ten lifetimes. You said that if you had to name the two most influential figures on your life that they would be Stephenie Meyer and Sarah Palin. Oh btw Steph, do you still have that shiny Robert Pattinson shrine in your closet?

Steph said...

Why no, Taren, I moved it to your lap because that's where I spend inordinate amounts of time at. :)

Taren said...

Is anyone seeing this? This girl is sexually harassing me and I don't like it! Maybe if Steph's hero, Stephenie Meyer, did a PSA about why sexual harassment is bad, she'd cut it out.

Alas, as someone who has actually read the Twilight series, I fear that anti-sexual harassment really isn't SM's forte.

Diana Dang said...

So I assume that's a new character that will appear in New Moon? <-Only read Twilight

That's just... sad.

Steph said...

Excuse me but who was the loser who actually begun this comments thread discussion in the first place?

Also, why do you keep COMING INTO MY HOME AND PROVOKING ME IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT?

Taren said...

Um...I was just telling it like it is. You asked why you care and I was just letting the people know why you care -Twilight is your Bible.

Are you saying that I'm bringing these attacks on myself? Way to blame the victim, Meyerlover.

Brooke Reviews said...

Yikes. I dunno. I think she's a very cute girl, but isn't Leah Clearwater like...a bitch and TALL. lol Whatever, the casting was questionable for Twilight, may as well keep it that way for New Moon. :)

Alea said...

LOL @ you guys. And yeah, that just doesn't seem like the right fit by a long shot. P.S. Digging your multiple posts a day and bunches of reviews! Yay!

ilonga said...

I can´t imagine her as Leah. She´s too... I don´t know... sweet?

Nikki said...

You're not wrong. We've been talking about this over on yaReads and no one is happy about it.

Gah, Vanessa as Leah? This is so bad. I'm going to boycott, me thinks...

Darling Diva said...

**sticks fingers in throat** YUCK!

Adele said...

I can't imagine little girl-voiced Vanessa in the role at all. She can't do strong, angry or really convey any emotion at all ,which is a problem because Leah is a swirling mass of emotions.

I guess if the role meant giggling, twirling one's hair around her pointer finger and wearing clothes nicely then we'd have our girl!

GreenBeanTeenQueen said...

Yeah, I heard this too and I really hope they don't cast her. I'm not even a fan of the books, but even I see that's just wrong!

inkspatters said...

Oh no. Way to ruin one of the only characters I ever liked from Twilight. Hopefully this is just a rumour.

Just Listen said...

Ugh. I heard that rumour, how terrible! She would do an awful job at playing Leah. Gahh. I really hope that it's just a rumour.

Laura said...

I saw that it was just a rumor and she hasn't auditioned. What about the girl who played Juno? Ellen Page? she'd make a kick-ass Leah.

stargirlreads said...

I forget who Leah even is. I'm only reading new moon now tho.

Gabbi said...

She didn't even audition for the role - her agent confirmed it. Just the media taking Ashley Greene's (plays Alice) comment too far.

Gerb said...

I think I may be waaay too invested in who they are casting for this movie. I was Not Happy until I read that Taylor Lautner will indeed be playing Jacob again. But now... Not Happy again. She's a cute actress, but this part doesn't need cute.

Vicky said...

:O ARGH! I can't stand that girl! I will be seriously upset if they cast her. That would completely ruin the next three films.

pepsivanilla said...

Seriously? The best they can come up with is someone off Disney Channel? How about an unknown please?

Laina said...

Guh, I don't like her. If they cast her, I'm going to... I don't know, lol, maybe boycott New Moon. No, fast forward through her parts! Lautner's badly enough cast.
