Gil Birmingham as Billy Black

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

Casting

Post by RomansGirl »

I don't know if this is the right place to post this or not. I was just wondering, have they cast the role of Lauren yet? I don't remember seeing or hearing anything and they've finished filming at Kalama. Could they have cut her part out? Wasn't she the mean and nasty one?

PS - If this posts twice it's because my internet connection is crappy.

He's a little different to what I had expected...a tad younger than I had expected but that dosen't really matter! He looks like he's about the same age as Billy Burke too so thats a pro!! It might look a little weird for Charlie to be friends with someone thats much older than him, at least this way they might seem to have grown up together... Plus he looks like he could be Taylor's dad!!

What? Billy Black according to the <a href="http://www.twilightlexiconblog.com/?p=84">Character Profiles</a> on this website is supposed to be born in the 1950's. He's OLD. This guy was born in 1966. There's absolutely no way he is too old. Plus, make-up goes a long way.

Lauren is not a very large part. I don't even think she actually speaks in the first book. Just dirty looks and such. This type of role would not warrent a named actor. If she is even in the film at all. Lauren is not exactly what I would call, important to the story line.

This comment is completely shocking to me considering he is the father of 2 married daughters and the father of a teenage son, not to mention crippled from diabetes. I would like to know how young you think a person can be to do all of these things? Because any younger and Billy would have been having kids in his teens!

Perfect. He doesn't play Billy, he is Billy.
...Seine Hand fuhr an meinem Ellbogen entlang, langsam den Arm hinunter, über Rippen und Taille zur Hüfte und das Bein hinunter bis zum Knie. Dort ließ er die Hand einen Moment liegen, dann umfasste er meine Wade. Plötzlich hob er mein Bein an und schlang es um seine Hüfte.
"Nicht dass ich deinen Zorn vorzeitig heraufbeschwören wollte", flüsterte er, "aber könntest du mir vielleicht verraten, was du gegen dieses Bett hast?"

Gosh, I, too, never once thought of Billy in the books as hot...but seeing that picture of Gil...he's a bit of eye candy for us oldies. He looks perfect to me.

Good Lord..I just clicked over to his website...oh man! I've got to go fan myself!!!!

she speaks a lot in the first book! She is the one that comments that the cullens were not invited to the beach! The whole catalist of finding out Edward secret! They will have to re-write that whole scene some how to get Sam to say "they don't come here." plus I for some reson think she will pop up in the fourth book like Jacob will imprint on her and make bella really mad! (I know I hate the thought too)
gravity moves when you see her, suddenly it's not the earth that hold you, she does
