‘Eclipse’ Adds Jack Huston To The ‘Twilight’ Team

Don’t look now, but there’s been another “Eclipse” casting announcement. The newcomer is Jack Huston, who appeared in the recently released “Shrink” and starred in the oddball 2007 horror flick “Shrooms.” Guess what that one’s about. The actor follows Bryce Dallas Howard and Jodelle Ferland as the latest addition to the “Twilight” world.

Huston will play Royce King II, a human who lived during the Great Depression, according to The Hollywood Reporter. King has a bit of a history with Rosalie Hale (Nikki Reed), which I won’t spoil here for those two or three of you interested readers who haven’t read the book. Let’s just say that things don’t end particularly well for Mr. King, but at least he had it coming.

If you missed “Shrink,” you can next catch Huston in “Boogie Woogie,” Danny Moynihan’s adaptation of his own novel, directed by Duncan Ward. He’s also lined up for a role in an Al Pacino flick and on the TV series “Eastwick.” And of course, you’ll be able to see Huston as Royce King II next summer, when “Eclipse” hits theaters on June 30. That’s the plan anyway.

Are you familiar with Huston’s work? Do you think he’s a good fit for Royce King II? What might a little bit of “Twilight” success do for his career?
