Not So Fast Dakota - New Moon Casting News


So, yesterday the internet was all abuzz about Dakota Fanning playing the part of Jane in the upcoming sequel to Twilight, New Moon. Although I wasn't convinced she would be good for the part, after reading all of your comments I decided she wouldn't be half bad. However, it might be all too much too soon anyway. Now this could be a ploy by the producers to get Dakota to make a decision, but my source says that as of two days ago, actresses were still auditioning for the role of Jane in the movie. If Dakota had been cast, they wouldn't be doing that. If it is a negotiating ploy, they might be.

The part is definitely going to go to someone who is 15 or 16 years old, so that would seem to give Dakota a shot and not the 28 year old actress that a big name agency is trying to shove down the producers' throats.

I know her looks have matured a lot over the past couple of years but she still scares the crap out of me a la Tilda Swinton. One weird looking kid she was.

Pookie said...

enty you sooooo have to dish on who the 28 yr. old is! you know we love dirt... ;)

Mooshki said...

My guess is LiLo. As if.

Kara said...

Is Megan Fox 28?

Judi said...

Megan's 22, like Lilo. Both born in '86. They look 38.
Dakota's got the chops to do it well.

Mooshki said...

Jax, I was reading back on CDaN, and 'Emily' is the part that America read for. 'Jane'/'Emily' - don't ask me who or what they are either.

Also, Celebuzz f-ed up what they read on CDaN and announced that America Ferrera was the one trying out for the part. Haha!

Just throwing names out of actresses around that age: Sienna Miller

Mooshki said...

Ha, Judi, thanks for rationalizing my mistake for me. Seriously, how can LiLo be that wrecked at 22? Lordy.

Judi said...

Sophia Myles? I actually really like her but not for this.

Judi said...

Cheers, Moosh. Mindboggling, isn't it?

Judi said...

Bijou Phillips. Doubt she's with a big name agency.

Judi said...

Wait - how old is Ebola? And would any agency be stupid enough to try that?

Judi said...

Eva Green. Oooooo. Shame the role is a teen.
Jessica Simpson. LOLOLOL!!!

Judi said...

Kristen Bell. Might very well be her.
Dominique Swain. Enty would never write this way about her though.

Judi said...

Samaire Armstrong? Naaah.
Jenna Dewan? Not a bad choice actually. Could pass for 16. Not Dakota-level experience, but isn't as well known either.

Judi said...

Christina Aguilera! LOLOL!

That's it. That's all I got.

Love Like Winter said...

Ugh, Twilight. A whole lot of "brushing hair back" and swooning. *gag*

Anne Rice is not amused.

Jamie's Girl said...

Dakota would be kick ass at this. I love her. She is very gifted, ala Jodie Foster. I really have an affection for her and love her, especially in Charlotte's Web.

Jamie's Girl said...

oh and Kirsten Dunst is 26, but she was in Interview.

Sis said...
