I dunno how I got so sucked into all this Twilight casting drama, but somehow I did, so we might as well play it out all the way.
The newest rumor on the block is whether Vanessa "You've seen my cooter on the internet" Hudgens will play the role of disgruntled werewolf Leah Clearwater in the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon. While, okay Hudgens does look a little like the female counterpart to Taylor Lautner, she'll have to (sigh) bring some acting chops to the role of a girl dumped by her love who becomes the only female werewolf of her tribe. I mean the acting was soooooo good y'all in the first flick. The rumor got started when Twilight's Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen, told MTV at a Golden Globes afterparty that Hudgens has actually auditioned for the role. "I think she'd be great," MTV quotes Greene as saying of Hudgens. Somewhere 'tween girls are crying hysterically.
As for rumor No. 2, this one actually makes my '80s-loving heart soar a bit. Glenn Gordon Caron, the creator of Moonlighting is apparently determined to reunite Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis for a 20th anniversary Moonlighting TV movie. The most surprising aspect of this is that Bruce Willis, who went on to become one of the biggest movie stars in the world, has shown definite interest. An insider says, "Bruce is ready to give it a go. He still holds a lot of fondness for the show." Like the other recent '80s remakes (Romancing the Stone, Footloose, Ghostbusters, and Arthur, just to name a few), I'm slightly wary about this. It could either elevate the show in my mind, or suck the wind out of it (cough cough Indy IV).
Thoughts on these two rumors?
