Take, for example, today’s news that Bryce Dallas Howard will take over for Rachelle Lefevre in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” the third installment in the bloodsucking ’tween-friendly franchise. While it’s still too early to call the casting an upgrade over Lefevre, it’s certainly not as bad of a replacement as it could be. If nothing else, Howard is in good company — plenty of Hollywood-folk have been in her shoes before, and many of them proved successful in their reinterpreted roles.
Don’t believe me? This stroll down memory lane of five re-cast roles should be proof enough that Howard’s upcoming gig might work out for the best.
