Edi Gathegi as Laurent

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

I don't care what ANYONE else says about Edi...I LOVE him as Laurent. I love the old-school cravat. It rocks. Edi makes me want to wear one. :lol:

But seriously, it says something about his character. I know people are all, wtf? about the cravat, but I think it's pretty awesome. It says so much about the character by just being there.

And I love Edi's personality outside of his character anyways. I know people had expectations about Laurent, but he's brought this amazing, incredibly enthusiastic personality to him. (Need I remind you, "Black olives, anyone?" :lol:)

Edi rocks! Yay Laurent! :D

*runs off and tries to perfect saying "Laurent" like a French person*

i'm sorry, but this statement is pretty offensive. it's not awesome to make generalizations fact in any context. there's no fence in forks keeping all the non-white people out, and i'm sure there's at least a few folks there who aren't white. even if forks is less diverse than they're portraying, the whole country will be watching the movie where diversity may or may not prevail in their community. it sends the correct message, at least.

on another note, edi is even BETTER than what i pictured laurent as. his dreads = FULL OF AWESOME. i am so excited for him. his casting has made my day.

YAY! he has 1001 friends ialready =]

And after reading his interviews and blogs he seems like a really cool guy and a good actor. I'm glad he's playing Laurent now cause he really seems to like the books (he read the first two). Woot go Edi!

Well, I didn't imagine Laurent as an African American, but I guess he'll do a good job. I hope. :)

I'm not feeling the dreads. He looks like the guy in the first Pirates of the Caribbean, the one that gets stabbed at the end? Yeah, so that's all I keep picturing.

I was really happy they went with a non-Caucasian in this one. There are strikingly few 'ethnic' vampires... come on, Blade was badass and you know it.
