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

Billy Burke as Charlie

Post by Cocoa » Fri Feb 22, 2008 8:47 am

Discuss the actor Billy Burke.

Role officially confirmed by Creators.com
Creators.com wrote:THE BIG SCREEN SCENE: "I started off my career being the bad boyfriend running around with the gun, and now I'm officially old enough to play a 17-year-old's father," observes Billy Burke, recently seen in the thriller "Untraceable" — and now, just beginning work as Kristen Stewart's pere in the adaptation of Stephenie Meyers' young adult novel, "Twilight." "It's about a young girl who comes to live with her dad and falls for a vampire — sort of a vampire Romeo and Juliet." At the helm is Catherine Hardwicke, "one of my favorite up-and-coming directors — who did 'Thirteen' and 'Lords of Dogtown.'"

He's not exactly how I saw Charlie but I think he's going to be great


I saw untraceable last weekend and I thought it was really good and his acting was great too :)

Charlie will be way more good looking than I pictured him 8) but I think Billy Burke will be a great Charlie. He was great in Fracture as a policeman.

I think he'll do a good job. I always pictures some obese police officer when reading, but I think Billy suits Charlie much much better. And he's a great actor!

I think if they can make him a tiny bit older looking, he'll do just fine. I always pictured Charlie looking around 40-45 years old and sort of.. bigger in the waist. But who knows maybe they'll all prove us wrong.
Bella may not be able to..

I think he's absolutely perfect for Charlie and I thought so the first time I saw his picture back when that radio show rumor was going around. I'm glad it's been confirmed because since then I couldn't picture anyone else as Charlie. He's got the cute daddy look about him. Heck, I wish he was my daddy, hahaha.

I'm glad we got a Charlie cast! Billy looks like he could really do Charlie justice, so I'm happy and excited!

For those who want to see Burke in action or hear him speak here's a quick little thing on YouTube with him from Untraceable. He does a little interview through out it.

<a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=ve8hMQU5CHU" ... MQU5CHU</a>

I love his voice.

EDIT: He comes on around the 40 second mark in this one: <a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=JEvy_v32lWE" ... _v32lWE</a>

He doesn't speak in this one but there's a quick glimpse of him around 00:14. <a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=gCPJSLiUilU" ... SLiUilU</a>

Gotta say I was expecting someone a little more run down for Charlie, but at least they got a great actor for the role. Maybe they can make him seem a little more aged or ragged. I'm sure he'll give a great performance :wink:
