Exciting news, Twilighters! USA Today just published the first official photo of the Quileute werewolf pack from "New Moon." The four actors featured in the photo are Chaske Spencer (Sam), Alex Meraz (Paul), Kiowa Gordon (Embry) and Bronson Pelletier (Jared) — all have some Native American heritage. Though we got a glimpse of a few of Jacob's friends in the first movie, the characters will have a much bigger role in the sequel, as Bella gets very close to Jacob after Edward's departure.
Twilighters everywhere were really excited about the casting of the Quileutes a few months ago — obviously, the studio went for authenticity with this group of little-known actors who all have some Native American heritage. Tons of fan sites did some digging right away and found some pictures of Chaske, Alex, Kiowa and Bronson. But the boys look a lot different in this new official picture than they did back then. They've clearly been cleaned up a bit — and it's obvious they've been working out to live up to their buff descriptions in the books.
But while every fan was thrilled with the casting since it meant the film would be striving for legitimacy rather than just trying to get big names (i.e. Vanessa Hudgens), this particular fan — who is Native American — is slightly confused. The guys all look hot. But I have to be honest: They just ... don't look very Native American anymore. They look vaguely Spanish. What do you guys think?
"The Twilight Saga: New Moon" will be released on November 20. In the meantime, weigh in with your thoughts.
