'New Moon' Casting Call Causes Howls of Anguish
Sometimes you can have too many aspiring werewolves.
A virtual army of wanna-be New Moon players descended on the Vancouver casting call for the Twilight sequel this weekend, leaving a large number disappointed as they were shut away from the proceedings.
The Vancouver Sun describes scenes of crying fans and arguments from the disgruntled aspiring stars. There was no blood, but certainly a lot of sweat and tears (and the occasional line-cutter accusation).
Importantly, no supernatural fights broke out.
The crowd had responded to an ad on Craigslist for “any first nations/aboriginal actors and actresses between the ages of 15 and 25" available to film between March and May.
The lines began to form as early as 5 a.m. at the Vancouver studio, with fans coming from as far away as Florida. By 12:30 p.m., a casting director told the crowd that no more people would be left in the building.
"This is more than we expected,” Bim Narine, a casting assistant, told the Sun.
Scripts were only handed out to successful candidates who met casting director Stuart Aikins' pre-screening requirements.
