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.

For some reason, I actually pictured Mike a little bit better looking... no punn intended, because he is probably much better suited for the part! he DOES have the baby face Bella describes!

yay for more great casting!

I think he's adorable, he could almost be a Cullen he's that cute! Okay, so maybe the Cullens aren't really cute, more absolutly beautiful. But Mike is still so damn loveable, that's for sure. :)

I am so happy michael welch is playing mike!!(how ironic).lol.
he's going to be great i know it. i loved him in JOAN OF ARCADIA. seriously that show is the best show i wish they didn't cancel it. and not that many people have seen the show, but i can assure you michael is a great actor, at least in the show he is. it will be interesting seeing him play someone other than a nerd. and from the things i've read on the blogs he seems really funny too. :D
Rob Fan!!!

still can't decide:
Edward or Jacob??

Not how I pictured the character but I can see this one working quite well. Haven't seen him in anything since Joan of Arcadia but I really enjoyed him in that.

Ok, I don't really care for Mike that much in the books, but it's going to be hard not to find him cute in the movie, lol.

Plus the Michael himself is funny and seems incredibley sweet :)

Although I have to admit that the 'Twi-hards' label bothers me abit too.
It's kind of sweet that he wants to name us, and connect with us on that level, but I was always a Twilighter

I dunno, I like the whole "Twi-hards" thing. It makes me smile to see he loves us enough to nickname us, lol. :)

And I know what you mean Cinderella85. I hated Mike in the books, he was just so annoying! But Mike (Welch) is so darn adorable, I can't help but fall in love.

I prefer not to be labelled, but maybe that's just me.

Unless we're talking Despair Faction/Echelon

Back on topic: he's not bad for the role...not quite what I pictured but then again stuff like that is very subjective, he might be someone else's perfect Mike. I actually found it hard to visualise a few of the characters when I was reading the book and Mike was one of them.
