Edi Gathegi as Laurent

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

But it's funny, in a car ride my friend and I were talking about what black vampires would look like since the vampires get paler. Would they just be a lighter shade of brown or would they be albino like the Da Vinci Code guy in Epic Movie? The irony is, when I got home and checked the Lexicon, lo an behold Laurent was being portrayed by a black actor!
I would picture a black vampire was a chalky- faded brown. [[shrugs]] I'm not sure they're doing anything with it in the movie though.

okay, im seriously not trying to be racist, but why is laurent black? i swear all the vamps were supposed to be pale and whatnot. he seems like a jamaican guy in the promo with the dreds. totally love it. he may not look laurent to me, but totally satisfied.

At first I really didnt like their Laurent casting, I had the whole 'how are they going to make him pale' problem. But then I read the interveiw, he sounds like a really awesome guy, and it is nice that they're making it more diverse. And now after watching the new video I just think everyone will be amazing. :)

i kno a lot of people are happy with the 'diverse casting' but thats unrealistic in the suberbs. mine for instance is full of european-catholics or asians, and my friend has a community full of mexicans people, and i heard new jeseys full of greeks. i how it is in the city but suberbs tend to be repetitive. oh and i went to forks-ther all a bunch of unwealthy white people-please dont call me racist im jus being candid

I think people need to step back and take a breath and say with me:

"This movie is a work of a fiction, so is the book, everything is going to be unrealistic from the get-go"...

These topics have been discussed and argued to death. There are actually a lot of black people who are French. And a ton who are from Louisianna as well (wasn't that were Laurent was from?). And for all we know they will be making him pale! We haven't seen the finished product yet!

I've just watched the new clip and I loved Laurent's dreads.

I do need to watch this movie, or I'll get seriously sick :?

his dreads were cool..
"Not to bring on the ire prematurely," he whispered, "but do you mind telling me what it is about this bed that you object to?"......."That's debateable," he disagreed. "This would be difficult on a couch."

agreed Weasel!

couldn't have said it better myself.
I know everybody loves Twilight... just give them a chance!
I'm sure the movie will be slightly different, but nonetheless phenomenal!
Yours,
Jenna
