Major 'New Moon' Casting News: Wolfpack Announced

Major 'New Moon' Casting News: Wolfpack Announced-photo

Taylor Lautner does not hunt alone. The wolfpack has been announced!

One of the major casting decisions of the New Moon movie has made official, the movie's pr people confirm to Celebuzz.

The Native American/First Nation actors playing the pivotal wolf scenes include Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz, Bronson Pelletier, Kiowa Gordon and Tyson Houseman.

For the most part this was a closely guarded secret by the movie producers, with the exception of Pelletier, which leaked out earlier this year.

Each member is of Native American descent. Spencer is Lakota (Sioux), Pelletier is Cree-Metis, Meraz is Purepecha (Tarasco), Gordon is Hualapai and Houseman is Cree. Houseman was one member of the pack discovered in an open casting call in Vancouver where thousands descended for a chance to make it in the movie. Many were disappointed, but Houseman clearly prevailed.

This is bad news for Robert Pattinson and his vampire pals. New Moon will focus on the werewolves after the Twilight vampire-love. And werewolves are ancestral enemies of the vampires. From the looks of the very large Meraz − who has been spotted around Vancouver wearing a black leather jacket and filling door-frames with his shoulders − it's going to be trouble. Houseman is not nearly the baddie, but from his talent-agency website he's up for "stage fighting and fencing." He might be the guy who just stays out of the way.

Bring it, vampires!

    I just lost interest and if Robert's presence won't be as dominating as it was in the "TWILIGHT" movie....then count me out....good luck with the Indians (oops! native americans) and the movie.

    how can you say these are tiny roles? the wolves play a huge role throughout the series... unless of course you havent read the series in which case maybe you should do your research.

    These guys have tiny roles. Its like the fuss made of some of the vampire roles when infact you only see them for a few minutes.
