My Very Own Twilight Casting (Part I)

Hey sorry everyone! I spent some time in the hamptons with a friend, and I didnt have time to post. I've actually been working on this post for a bit, so I hope you guys like it.

Anyway, I know there was a lot of different ideas about the twilight casting. I'm only concentrating on the part of Edward Cullen. Here are pictures of Robert Pattinson, the actor chosen to play him.

Robert Pattinson:

Okay, okay. I have to admit that he is kinda cute. But I read Twilight before the movie trailers started to come out, and my Edward Cullen looked nothing like this guy! I know there are some hard-core Robert Pattinson fans out there that are going to hunt me down for saying this, but...he really isn't that amazing looking. I mean, he's cute- but I would say a long shot from being as good looking as some of the guys that I posted here. The only scene where he would look "hot" is the scene where he saves Bella from the van (I also have a problem with that casting because of her upturned nose and dull voice, but thats for another time). He also looks "hot" when he's super photoshopped, you know, the ones where his eyes are made a different color and his skin is made super pale. But thats it. Usually his hair looks ridiculous, and his face just has...weird proportions. Which makes him a unique actor, but NOT for a role where the character is supposed to look like perfection in human form. And its not like he's a super experienced actor, unless you think that his role as Cedric in Harry Potter deserves an Oscar. Haha. So I was out to look for an actor that looked like this:

So here are the nominees!

Tom Sturredge: Cuuuuuute. Very cute. And sexy. With those gorgeous eyes and dark hair, I think he would make a wonderful Edward Cullen.

Henry Cavill: A lot of people thought he would make a good Edward Cullen, and I agree.


Hayden Christensen: Nice body, nice face, enough said.


Kevin Flamme: (French model) Very cute- but a face I would easily forget. He also looks a little childish compared to the other nominees. Nontheless, very handsome.


Gaspard Ulliel: (cute, but personally I wouldnt like him as Edward Cullen. Here he is anyway because he is definetly nice eye candy.) However, as you can see in the last picture of him, he is an amazing actor and easily transformable into different characters. Doesnt he look like he could be James?


---

Okay so you've seen all these beautiful men. Tom Welling, however, is my personal Edward Cullen; meaning, while I was reading these Twilight books, I thought of Tom Welling. You might recognize him from Smallville (superman in younger/teenage form). I mean, I know he's a little older than the other nominees, but he still looks smashingly young! And those eyes are intense, perfect for a vampire. And his body is ah-maz-ing. I can find nothing wrong with this guy; therefore, he is my Edward Cullen. =]


Tom Welling:








So, I know there are plenty of Twilight fans out there. Tell me your opinion! I'm really curious to see what people think of the Twilight casting of Edward Cullen. Again, soryr that I took so long to post this!

Much Love,

I'm let down with the Edward casting...so much I wanted Gaspard as Edward. I'm not sold in Kristen either ..with that scowl of her about everything. Emma Stone would have been more realistic..even better Kat Dennings.

RASPBERRY said...

Hey, good you're back on the game haha
Thank you for your sweet comments too ^^

So I've only read Twilight (didn't read New Moon and et cetera yet), but I'd say I agree with you.
First of all, I got into this Twilight-thing because of the actor that will play Carlisle - I LOOOVE Peter Facinelli he was so hot in Fastlane - not sure if he's gonna be a good vampire, though.

I liked Robert Pattison in Harry Potter. He was really good as Cedric - I mean looks, not acting.
But then he turned all... Idk, weird? Sometimes he looks like a junkie/homeless. I wouldn't choose him as Edward either (I'm not even going to talk about Kirsten Stewart - eww).

I like your choices!!
Too bad Hayden & Tom W. are a little old to play a 17 year old (HOLLY SHIT I love them they're so gorgeous - and Tom's smile is so vampire-ish, yum!).

I've also heard some good things about Gaspard, so I think he would be a good choice too.

Tom Sturredge & Henry Cavill - PERFECT CHOICES (even though I have no idea who they are).

Rock on!

It's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week! I would love to be invited to the show.

passionate believer said...

I wonder how people get the "invitation only" ticket in general. Do you know?

v1dasalvag3 said...

I totally agree with you. When I thought of Edward I think he looks more like Tom Sturredge.

La Femme Chic said...

Oooooh Tom Welling, what a beautiful man. *sigh*
Mmm Tom Sturredge would make an excellent Edward. Both of them are gorgeous.
I hate the casting. I LOATHE WITH A PASSION, Kristen Stewart as Bella. Hate that.

Copycat Sasha said...

Your first pick looks most like my Edward. I'm not so disappointed with the Edward as I am with the Bella. I think they could have picked someone prettier.

Ane J said...

Haha!
Yeah, I ain't much of a Twilight fan, but I couldn't agree more! I especially like the first one..
Yumm yumm

And yes!
Do you mind if I link you?

closetfullofchic said...

i totally agree! i was thinking steven strait would be perfect for the part.

The Stylish Wanderer said...

Haha. The tom welling thing made me laugh.....

A few of those are good. I LOVE LOVE Henry Cavill, except only when he was in The Count of Monte Cristo. Now he is just incredibly thin and angular looking....

she like electric said...

The men you picked are lovely. I would've rather see Gaspard as Edward. Or any other French guy.

RASPBERRY said...

I gave you an award :)

Where have you been?

Remind Myself said...

Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

A bank is nearly bankrupt......

How it affect you? Did you buy insurance? Did you buy mini note or bonds?

Who fault?


The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......



Sign a petition to your favourite president candidate, congress member again and ask for their views to comment on this, and what regulations they are going to raise for implementation.....If you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible....

Katie said...

I think Bella is perfect and I think that rob is perfect in certain parts. I think he is quite beautiful, but I hate to say this, at some angles he looks like a cave man because of him brown bone and square features. Rosalie I thought would be more of a classic beauty, she's not the best, but she will do. I hate Esme.

Amelia said...

OMG- Tom Welling is also my personal Edward Cullen. He's suppose to be incredibly good looking which the actor, that is playing Edward, is not. We're suppose to be stunned by his beauty and almost every guy you choose fits that better than the current Edward. Also, the one playing Rose.. isn't she suppose to be the most beautiful girl we've laid eyes on? She so does NOT fit that. She's pretty but the blonde from Heroes would've made a better Rose. I also can't stand the actress playing Esme. She was on Grey's Anatomy for a while, no? Went crazy & all... if that's her.. ugh!

Amelia said...

Here's my ideal cast:
Edward: Tom Welling
http://decabo.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/tom-welling.jpg

Bella: I have no idea- the currect actress doesn't look the part though

Esme: ANYONE but the one playing her... ANYONE!!! Even Rosie O'Donald... ANYONE!

Rosalie: Ali Larter
http://www.imdb.com/media/rm4035482624/nm0005123

The rest of the cast is fine... they don't really stand out much in my mind so they'll do.

Velda said...

I totally agree with you on the tom welling thing (found this googling 'tom welling as edward cullen' because that's what I wished would have happened). But you know, there's a photo of him at a baseball game or something that is so .. not hot. So I dunno. Hopefully the movie will be good even with a slightly less attractive Edward :)

Heidi said...

I think that Robert fits a great vampire role.. normally the vamps are pretty boys and have no manliness to match their new found finesse and grace as a vamp.. Youve got to admit that Roberts bone structure lends itself to more animal/human blood sucker, than any of the other guys posted above...( albeit they are incredibly beautiful guys) So in an animalistic sense I think Robert suits the role fine..(I know, I know, he is supposed to be human turned vamp which means he doesnt have to 'look' like whatever a vampire looks like- however his face is so different that it lend itself to his character by making us see he him as unique and not quite human to begin with.. ). also his mouth completely looks like it really houses vampire teeth/ fangs..

I think Kristen looks amazing.. why? because her features are more delicate, her eyebrows are expressive and delicate (have a look) she is not over the top pretty which makes it easier to feel like we could be just like her (and her character is supposed to be sort of plain ish too)..
Im not completely satisfied with Kristens acting however...
I dont actually think her acting is as 'vulnerable' as it should be..( bella cries when shes angry.. I dont think I saw her cry once in the movie? ) I expected to feel more of what she was going through and the excitement of it all etc.. but i think she acted quite internally and so it didnt all come out.. Ill give it to her though that I still think she has a natural quality on screen and I cant wait to see what she will do in the future.. I think she has alot of intelligence that has not fully ripened on screen yet...

I think the screen play didnt provide enough for the actors to go on and so at times, I felt like i I hadnt read the book, I wouldnt know what was going on in their heads at all.. and the pace of the action was not quite fluid in some scenes...

Personally, I think that brad pit has to date, made one of the most beautiful vampires, partly too because of his forlorn character and his awesome mix of pretty boy /sexy/ strong jawline and manliness to match..

Tom Sturredge and Tom Willings

midnight said...

^_^ this is my 1st time posting here:D so this is going to be interesting...well i think that Tom Welling it's a really nice guy, he looks really HOT :"> so, he could be one of the best possible choice, but...i have to say that Robert Pattison did amezed me, he relly looks more then just gorgeous in "Twilight", he's act was good, i didn't recognized him until i googled it :D, so i was relly surprised to find out that he's Cedric from "Harry Potter"...yes, he is not that experienced and hope u don't mind but allmost none of the posibilities given is, they just look hot, and after all everybody needs a start, this is his :P, a verry promising one:)
hope u guys won't hate me now:P

Audra said...

I just found your blog about the Twilight casting and aside from Tom S. I have to agree on your non-Rob choices. After seeing the movie I like Rob even less. The whole movie I kept saying to myself "why is Bella acting all crazy and being all 'I'd rather die without you' to this plain, almost ugly guy?" Rob didn't encompass the insanely beautiful and amazingly interesting person that Edward is. Instead he came across as weird, rude, and looked like he was going to puke whenever he was around her, rather than looking like he was going to ravage her. Rob even said in an interview I watched with him that he actually doesn't have a clue how to do expressions with his face so that's why he looks so bad!

PS. I think Gaspard would have actually made a perfect LAURENT.. He's a beautiful French man! The main reason why they couldn't cast people like Gaspard or Henry for roles as Laurent or Carlile was b/c they were just too damn good looking and would outshine Rob (which isn't hard to do lol)

Nice blog post!

Audra said...

Oh one other thing, I wanted to reply to what Ellie said in the first comment: I thought Emma Stone would have made a PERFECT Victora. She has those huge cat-like green eyes and her hair really is a fierce red. I actually know Emma personally and told her she should try out for the role, but she was working on other stuff at the time ("House Bunny" and "Ghost of GF's Past"). Darn it.

Baby l said...

the two Tom's look the same...and they both are Edward material..i don't think that Gasper is Edward material, he doesn't have any good looks to be honest...and Hayden,DAMN he is sexy...but i stay with the two Tom's..but i really think that Robert Pattison is "THE EDWARD", because if you just look closely then he is just right,he has this vampire look and at the same time it makes him look cute too...i dont think that we need an Edward that is DAMN sexy because then it will spoil everything,Robert Pattison is just right he isn't too Hot and Not even close to ugly..he is in the middle and i like that about him... so what do you say????

Baby l said...

oh and..i want to go for twilight castings for the next movie...hehehe where can i go to???

Tabitha said...

Hey just so everyone knows they already made the frickin movie/movies, so yeah......I dont' know why everyone one is.....I don't it's fiction, and it has been decided so I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say...get a life, jeez!!!!

Kendra said...

I 100% agree with your view on Bella. She totally has the wrong voice and something about her is wrong because she doesn't look helpless like Bella is supposed to.

Jennifer said...

Those Suck ! Robert Pattinson fits him perfectly. fuck you haters.

Ms. Margaret said...

I love the casting you chose. So much better than Rob. (although i am a fan of Pattinson)They were all mega hot. I have to say, I'm not happy with the casting they chose. Bella was not clumbsy enough. It was like she was too cool or something. I pictured her a little more awkward. Plus, in the movie she had like, two clumbsy moments. Any way, I think I would choose Henry Cavill. But then I like some of the others too.

olivexxpickle said...

totally agree with ellie...but tom sturredge looks like he could be even better c[: yumm.and yeah,i'm disappointed with rob as edward.i personally dont think he's very attractive at all.i'm loving your casting.and ROFLMAO at your comment on kirsten stewart's upturned nose/dull voice.i love it,too funny!

Butterfly said...

Ok I totally gree with your comments about the whole Twilight cating. Tom Welling would of been the perfect Edward Cullen. I mean he's just gorgeous, sexy, and lets just say hoooooooooooooooooooooot.
And of course not to talk about his abs and all that comes with it.
So have I made myself clear about Tom? Now about Robert Pattison's looks, not too good, so nevertheless even Taylor Lautner could of been a perfect Edward Cullen. He's just real cute and his body is well built not like Robert Pattison's that the first day he carried Kristen Stewart, he pulled a buttcheek muscle.lol. hahahaha. I can really go on all night with this but lets just say I made myself clear now. Ok maybe I can say a few more things. Being said that Tom Welling is so much hotter than Robert Pattison, we need a Bella because let's just say kristen is cute but not gorgeous to match Tom. No offense Kristen but there just needs to be aperfect match fot Tom.

cris said...

This is real good. I mean, seriously your choices would all work well :D I loovve Gaspard Ulliel, so hottt :D He'd make a PERFECT Edward!

haha, anyway, your blog is real nice to read. rock on! :) I will read your blog, lol

Caitlin said...

Tom Sturredge!

Hi :) I Just stumbled upon your blog when googling henry cavill and it's quite nice.

I loved the books (although they were quite shallow, imo) and I completely felt they screwed up Twilight the movie.

Edward looks in PAIN.. like he's got a thorn in his side, and Kristen is bland and emotionless. Her scowl and her annoying voice! She is not the average/awkward/ every day girl I imagined.

Daisy said...

tom sturridge is my edward even though i do like rob he is much better at playing cedric cos in harry potter he is gorgeous but not as edward. Anyway the first time i saw tom was in the boat that rocked he was really cute as carl!!!

Daisy said...

just 2 add i think the man who plays carlisle is just perfect as him, nothing should change there.

feather_lea. said...

I personally like Hayden :) But I get where you're coming from with Tom too! You forgot to mention his perfect teeth & smile. I do agree with you. He would have been SOOOO much better as Edward :)
I also don't like Kristen as Bella. IDK...I just don't think she's that great of an actress.

thechloster94 said...

Robert Patinson is nothing compared to what I imagined Edward to be in Twilight. The only good thing that I could agree with comparison wise is the hair. The color is what I imagined it should be. The face, ugh. No. Rob has some kind of look to him, an interesting look. Not necessarily hot or stunning, but he's got some form of good looks.. in his own way. And his body is no where near muscular enough. I mean, I wasnt expecting a body builder dude here, but seriously. He's got nothin. Im not really sure what actor I would picture to play the part of Edward.. I had my own idea of what he would look like, and Im sure everyone else does too. Although, I do agree that everyone of those guys would of been a better Edward than Rob Pattinson. :)

info said...

I know it's a bit of a late comment, but Tom Welling would be AMAZING as Edward. He's my own personal God, and imagining him whispering Bella's name, like he did in Smallville with Lana, would just turn the heat right up. I love Tom :)

info said...

Oh, and to add. They'd have to find an amazingly beautiful actress to match Tom's amazing beauty. LOL it wouldn't be plausible otherwise. Nice choices by the way, I thought that French model did look young, but he was definitely much nearer Edward than weirdo Rob. Seriously girls, if Tom Welling had played the part, and a nominee for Edward had been Robert Pattinson, we'd be going what the hell?! Nah, Tom W is perfection. But not seventeen :(

misdy said...

Robert Pattinson does okay, though he's definitely not how I pictured Edward. Every time I watch vampire diaries though, I'm more and more convinced that Paul Wesley (who plays Stefan Salvatore) would have made a great Edward.

I could never really picture Bella clearly... but Kristen Stewart doesn't fit at all - the personality is way off. She's just so droll.

Alice... said...

I agree wth U!
Tom Sturrige would have been a better and hotter Edward.
He, actually has that sweet look that is a little bit dangerous..
And he's freaking hot!
Really...If Edward Cullen was him...I think tha movie would have so much sucsess than wth Rob..
He's kinda ugly, don't hate me ^^

Alice... said...

and just to add.
I found ur blog..when I was googling Gaspar Ulliel. He's damn hot TOO!
Well, and Kristen. She's defintly NOT BEllA! IDK she' kinda scary..
sometimes..i think she's always STONE!

karen said...

i know im really late at answering this but, i agree that rob is not all that good looking never the less i fell in love with his personage, edward cullen OMG would do anythin to have BF with that personality:) tom welling is the sexiest man alive but he is my superman, not my vampire he is not dark enough as in (not on the dark side) and he has to much charme, vamps are suppose to be mysterious:) but yeah i would have liked someone else other than rob as edward:)

Jacqueline said...

I agree with you! I don't think that Robert Pattinson is a good choise for Edward Cullen. Bevor I read your article I thought that Hayden Christensen could be a good Edward, I thought that already before a year :) He is cute but also a good actor in science fiction movies or all in all with action :) so he can really be a good Edward, a beautiful Edward :)

oximore said...

Henry Cavill even was Stephenie Meyer's choice. She said he was ” The only actor I’ve ever seen who I think could come close to pulling off Edward Cullen is Henry Cavill. Henry was Albert, the young son in ‘The Count of Monte Cristo.’ Can you see it? I know I can!”.

The only problem was that he was too old for the role, but he would definitly have been the best actor.

demetriusmauzy13 said...

I just couldnt leave your website before saying that I really enjoyed the quality information you offer to your visitors... die casting

Bianca said...

I hate Rob Pattinson as Edward. Tom Sturridge is my personal fav. I 've been obssesed with him since I first saw him in vanity fair (movie).
And Tom Welling is sooo HOTTT! I've been in love with him for 9 years. He has been number 1 on my hot list from the first time I saw him. 'Spell' is my fav episode of smallville because he has his shirt of during most of the show.

I like Kristen Stewart, shes alright as Bella but while reading the story I pictured Molly C. Quinn, but with brown hair and eyes.

Smallvillelover said...

Tom Welling is the best person in the whole world and always will be!

(if u like smallville and u are about 13 years or below then contact me at cheeriohobby@yahoo.com!)

Smallvillelover said...

OMG I would hate Tom Welling to play Edward Cullen because he belongs to Smallville and heroic things and people like Lex Luthor not James! And Lana Lang not Bella Swan! (I'm a Clana Fan)

So Tom Welling no matter how awesome he is he is not a vampire he is an alien so that's how it is.

lildreamzz said...

I personally agree with you, Tom Welling would of been a better choice. Rob is great but they could have done SO much better. (don't kill me fans, you know it's true!)

reinhart said...

u just miss one man....Shiloh Fernandez,,i bet u,he just the one of handsome guy among hollywood actors.u can watch his latest film,red riding hood,

Juli said...

First off, let me start with saying that I love Rob. I'm glad he's in Twilight just so I can look at him. As far as fitting the role, however, I think they should have done btter. His voice is perfect and "velvety," but he just doesn't have that... I guess mean, intimidating, intensity. Edward should be able to look scary and angelic back and forth within seconds. Rob makes a worthy effort, but he just doesn't hit the mark. It doesn't make the character's reactions believable or make sense.
When I was reading the books, I imagined Henry Cavill, personally. Even after the movies, going back and rereading, I still can't see Rob as Edward. After reading your post, I think Tom Welling would have made a nice Edward, also.
Don't even get me started on Kristin Stewart. I like the actress but she makes a TERRIBLE Bella. The casting for Bella is so bad, it's like she's not even the same character.

Liza Jane said...

I totally think Tom Welling would have been the perfect Edward Cullen. I actually found this web page because I googled "Tom Welling as Edward Cullen". Rob did a good job at it but I think I would have enjoyed the movies more if Tom would have done it. Then again he was busy with Smallville, but next time i read the Twilight series I will picture Tom's beautiful face as the stunning Edward :) Thanks for understanding, you are a genius.

Liza Jane said...

I am a Smallville lover too, I actually just finished watching all 10 seasons consecutively but Tom could have been a AWESOME vampire in Twilight and a HOT alien in Smallville. I would never limit Tom to just one species :)

Liza Jane said...

I also think Tyler Hoechlin would have made a pretty good Edward Cullen. Not as good as Tom but he could definitely give Edward a serious yet mysterious feel and I would have enjoyed Twilight with him as Edward too :)

Liza Jane said...

And i just realized this conversation happened a couple of years ago and no one is probably ever going to read what I'm saying but that's okay :)
