New Moon Movie Wolf Pack

New Moon Wolf PackDirector Chris Weitz and Summit have brought on a cast of American Indian actors to star in the movie New Moon: Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Tyson Houseman have been casted to form the ensemble. In Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga, the Wolf Pack take the side of the humans in their fight against the evil breed of vampires.

So Taylor Lautner who plays the role of Jacob Black the werewolf is going to have a few friends:

Chaske Spencer as Sam Uley, the wolf pack leader
Sam Uley is the leader of the La Push pack. His father, Joshua Uley, abandoned him and his mother when he was very young. Before becoming a werewolf, he was romantically involved with Leah Clearwater, his high school sweetheart. His relationship with her started to fall apart after his transformation, because he was forbidden to tell Leah what he had become. Their relationship ended when Sam imprinted on Leah's second cousin, Emily, and went back on every promise he had ever made to Leah. According to Jacob, Sam feels guilty for betraying her and responsible for the bitter person Leah has become. When he phases, he is pure black and the largest wolf.
He is the pack Alpha, but not by blood; that role is Jacob's, but he allowed Sam to lead the pack.

Tyson Houseman as Quil Ateara, one of Jacob's best friends and an eventual member of the pack.
Quil Ateara is a member of the werewolf pack and Jacob's "wingman". He is described as being very muscular. He is only mentioned in passing in the first novel of the series but becomes somewhat of a regular character as of New Moon. Unlike most other members of the pack, he was happy about becoming a werewolf, since it allowed him to finally have his friends back and understand what was going on. As a wolf, Quil has chocolate-brown fur.

Kiowa Gordon as Embry Call, one of Jacob's best friends.
Embry Call has gray fur with dark spots on his back, and is another one of Jacob's "wingmen". He appears briefly in New Moon and Eclipse. Embry calls Bella Swan "vampire girl" because she hangs out with the Cullen family. His mother was a woman of the Makah tribe, not the Quileutes; since the werewolf traits are inherited from father to son, he is the half-brother of either Quil Ateara, Jacob Black, or Sam Uley. This causes some stress within the pack, since all of these men's fathers were married before and at the time of his birt

Alex Meraz as Paul, a member of the wolf pack with difficulties with self-control.
Paul is prone to angry outbursts which cause him to burst into his wolf form. Paul is one of the bigger wolves, and has dark gray fur. He is the most volatile member of the pack, and becomes so enraged when he learns that Jacob has told Bella about the pack that he turns into a wolf and attempts to attack her. He currently seems to have no ill feelings towards Bella or Jacob.

Bronson Pelletier as Jared, a member of the wolf pack
Jared was the first werewolf to phase after the pack's leader, Sam Uley. He is one of the five werewolves to imprint: he imprinted on Kim, a girl he sat next to in class. Before he was a werewolf, he never paid any attention to her. After his transformation, he looked at her once and imprinted.

Tinsel Korey as Emily Young, Sam's fiancée.
Emily Young is Sam Uley's fiancée and second cousin to Leah Clearwater. While dating Leah, Sam imprinted upon Emily when she visited and began pursuing her. She is described as having copper skin, raven black hair, and three long disfiguring scars running down the right side of her face and down her arms as the result of Sam phasing into a wolf too close to her. The left side of her face is extremely beautiful, as she was before the scars. Bella feels that Emily is the mother figure to the pack because she cooks all of their meals and they feel very comfortable and open in her house.

how come solomon thrimble was replaced as sam. so as krys for embry call.
i really do think that solomon fits the part just right, so as krys.
they shouldnt have gone replacing the ones casted just beacause of certain things like the body or looks, it would annoy the watchers coz they wouldnt know who's who and it would confuse 'em too. they could think that they're new characters when they're actually not. the production is a little crazy.

I love Jacob the best, there's no question there! Can't wait to see New Moon!

Where are the two siblings Leah and Seth?
Emily's/Tinsel's face is so white O.O.

I don't believe that the wolf pack should look like what they do. Jacob fits the part perfectly, same with Paul, Jared, and Emily. But in the book I don't portray Sam, Embry or Quil to look like that. But on the other hand, i'm sure they will do a great job. We shall see.

does anyone recall that Quil doesnt turn in this book??? am i the only one that remembers? i wish the writers would stick to the book more and the movies might not be so disappointing!

Izzy said...

The only time Seth and Leah appear in New Moon is when everyone is over at Jacobs for dinner once. I think it is maybe 2-5 pages in the whole book. That is probably why they haven't been cast yet. True Quil doesn't phase in New Moon but he does appear in it often. I like the pack casting but I would switch around who plays whom.

I'm excited- the wolf pack look hot- which is nice, and a pleasant surprise- as lets be honest with all of the wolf morphing- all us females should look forward to some topless male appreciation- well I know I will be!
Seth and Leah are also important, as Seth's relationship with Edward is so sweet- so I look forward to see who will play them!
I don't really have high expectations for New Moon, as I don't want to be too disappointed. Though- saying that, I am a secret optimist- so have huge hopes that I will be pleasantly suprised! One way or another- I will watch this in the cinemas- which will be good as quite a lot of my friends did not watch Twilight in cinema! But then the Twilight mania did hit England pretty late!

Claire is 2 not 3 years old.


Who is to play Leah Clearwater? And Seth? I love the role of Leah Clearwater, so i hope that they cast her role really good.(Being the only girl among a pack of, and on top of that- being a- SHE ROCKS!so those are some hard shoes to fill.)They better cast her role good because Native American blood runs through my veins, and i will be very disappointed if they dont cast her character RIGHT.

Ok Quil doesn't phase until the third book, so I hope they keep it that way. Seth and Leah appear in new moon but they phase in eclipse.
