Justin Chon as Eric Yorkie

Discussion about the Twilight movie. It's all speculation until Summit Films actually produces a script and casts it.

I'm not that concerned about the fact that he isn't Caucasian, because Eric's a very minor character, and I've seen Justin acting before, and I think he's good. I think we'll get a laugh out of him playing Eric; I can see him being a funny one in the movie. He's even read Twilight too, which is always a plus.

I think he would've made a better Ben though. I don't think they're going to cut Ben or Angela out though. Hopefully not.

EDIT: Never mind, they're not cutting Angela out, she's already been cast.

I like him, but I agree with others, it's kind of stereotypical to cast the asian actor as The Geek.

That's what I was thinking. Because of that reason, I think they should've stuck with a Caucasian to play Eric, and kept the Asian actor for Ben, like the way it should be. But I know it's a minor thing.

For some reason, I always thought that Ben would be the Asian guy. You know, because of that scene where he starts babbling about some badly dubbed martial arts movie to Angela in Eclipse. Eric I always pictured as the geek who had greasy hair, worn out socks, president of chess club, but was only put up with by the popular people because he was smart. And I'm not even being mean, because Stephenie's said some of this herself! Yorkie isn't even an "Asian" last name! But then again, neither is Cheney. Eh, but it's not really going to take away from the movie (or more importantly, Bella and Edward's romance) if he's played by an Asian guy. Just makes me wonder who is going to play Ben.

Great Interview Cocoa
My favorite question...and response
Lexicon - Do you think Bella should have chosen Eric (you) instead? Why?
Justin - Ha ha ha ha ha'.Yes, of course Bella should have chosen Eric. I mean what is there to resist? He's smart, charming and has a decent face structure. Bella definitely made a mistake.

I love how the actors are getting into character and really understanding their roles. Way to go playing up the whole Bella admirer competition angle.

Thank you Dano! He was alot of fun. I prefer interviews that are a little tongue and cheek verses the overly serious type.

My favorite questions were...serious wise: His insight into Eric being the diplomat, I thought that was brilliant!

But the BEST/funniest, that no one seems to have caught on to, was when I asked him what he thought about having female fans from 12-60 and then followed it up by asking if he was single! I spent a good half hour laughing about that one. Bring on the Cougars!

okay I officially love him after that interview. Anyone who loves Meg & Dia is good in my book, they are like my obsession in music (besides Kelly Clarkson, haha)

Awesome interview! I like Justin's personality... He seems really down to earth and just what you see is what you get!

But I'll agree Paradise Seeker... The interviewer's voice sort of made me wish that Bella would stab me with a pencil... :roll:
