Vanessa Hudgens to Get 'New Moon'-ed?

Vanessa Hudgens to Get 'New Moon'-ed?-photo

As if there hasn't been enough drama and suspense surrounding the cast of the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon, now it turns out that High School Musical fave Vanessa Hudgens may be signing on for the flick, according to EW.

Vanessa has been looking to expand her career from the High School Musical campus.  In Bandslam, coming out later this year, Hudgens again plays a high-school student, albeit one with a far more angst-adjacent outlook than the Disney vision she is best known for.

Doubters who want to pigeonhole the 20-year-old performer as a cream-puff actress should take note that one of her first roles was in Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke's gritty Thirteen—way back in 2003.  Zac's girlfriend more than held her own with the likes of Academy Award winner Holly Hunter and Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale in Twilight).

During Sunday night's Golden Globe Awards ceremony, Twilight actress Ashley Greene—who plays Alice Cullen in the film franchise—let slip to reporters that Hudgie Bear has actually auditioned for the New Moon role of werewolf Leah Clearwater. (A werewolf, eh? The flick's producers must have seen those nude photos of Nessie that were leaked onto the Web a while back.)

"I think she'd be great," Greene, 21, said of her potential cast mate.

Producers will have to come to a decision soon; New Moon begins shooting in March.

Good luck, Vanessa, but be forewarned; with all of the chaos already surrounding this flick, shooting is bound to be a grind.

Of course, if there's one thing Hudgens knows all about, it's getting through a grind.

    I personally think that this role isn't right for Vanessa Hudgens because of her role in High School Musical. She has so much innocence about her and her high pitched voice hasn’t got any feeling and this is no t right for being a Werewolf. Leah Cl earwater has hate and anger around her al ways as she despises Sam but loves him at th e same time. She wants nothing more than in dependence and she can’t have this beca use of her loyalty to the pack. I don’t think Vanessa Hudgens could pull this off. I think casting her as Leah Clearwater would be a big mistake and could jeopardise the movie. Ultima tely this is up to the director but hopefu lly these Websites can help them see that j ust because she has a big name doesn’ t mean that she will help the movie sell it could hurt its sales. I love the twilight series and I don’t think this would help them one bit. I hope there are many more sites like this letting the producers know that this is a bad idea and helping th em. I think the idea of casting unknowns o r not well know people is perfect for this m ovie because you already have an idea of th ere character because of the other roles they have played without seeing the movie (Hud gens for instance) but with an unknown th is fits it perfectly. This is a hard task but this movie is worth it. Don’t pick the ea y way out. This is an excellent movie, I can t wait to see New Moon. Sincerely Nicole so agree with you

    They nicknamed her 'Nessie' now? Nicknames for Vanessa Hudgens have always been Baby V, Nesquick, NessA, Van & V. Nessie is what everyone calls Renesmee. Just pointing it out.. Hope she gets the part, I freakin' adore her

    "let slip to reporters that Hudgie Bear has actually auditioned for the New Moon role of werewolf Alice Cullen" I think you're talking about Leah Clearwater, because Alice Cullen is played by Ashley Green...

    You are behind in the news. This was all a rumor started from blog sites where people said they "wished" Vanessa would be in the movie. Here rep already said it is NOT true.
