Michael Welch cast as Mike Newton

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

I think they made a very good decision on him playing Mike, he has that Mike look to him, but for his acting i havnt seen him act in anything but i will have to see for myself if he is a good actor or not, but i think that the casting has been going good so far..!

Aww. He looks so cute. I just want to hug him!!
He ozes Mike, though.
And his name is Micheal!!
I just got that!!
I havent seen him act.....
And, Ive only known about him for like, less than five minutes.
But, he's cute.
I saw a photo on imdb of him, in which his hair was blond, and I thought he REALLY looked like how I pictured Mike.
Just a bit longer and you've got your little golden retrevier.
Thats what bella refered to him...right??

He didn't look exactly how I pictured Mike; but I think he is the closest to my image.
I've not seen him act either, but I agree with longer hair, a perfect Golden Retriever :P

He seem like a great Mike!

I guess Im not too picky for who plays his character...its just Mike.
But this kid seem to fit it pretty well as far as physical appearance goes in my opinion, and from what I have seen from the clips, a decent actor too!
I can totaly see him as Mike!
Works for me.

I like it! :D

I was really impressed by his imdb page. He's very experienced and his characters are a wide variety, so yay!

He also looks so Mike-ish. Lol. I can just see him with spiked hair and over eagerness.

The casting is going great so far!

I think he really does fit the bill for Mike and he seems to have had a lot of experience for someone so young.

I'm happy.

wow, that lost dreams trailer is a little intense.
The role of Mike shouldn't be that complicated to pull off, and I think this guy will do alright. Isn't Mike supposed to be the best looking human at Forks High though, and this guy seems to fall into the average looking category for me.

Aww, he's adorable! He's got the Mike baby face and everything! Excellent casting choice.

As with all of the other minor characters, I didn'nt really have any ideas in my head of what they looked like. Michael just screams Mike though!!

As KatieTheFish pointed out, he's got a great variety of acting experiences behind him, so I don't think ability is going to be an issue. This cast is seriously turning out to be brilliant!!

AWE! <a href="http://www.imdb.com/media/rm316644096/nm0919616">This picture</a> is adorable, I can see him as Mike there. I'm pleased with this casting. <a href="http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2721943808/nm0919616">And this picture</a> has me sold. I want to pinch his cheeks!

EDIT: I should note that I only vaguely remember him from Joan of Arcadia but he looks SOOOO different now.
