So what would “Breaking Dawn’s” now almost certainly-two-installments be like without Ashley and Kellan? Probably like “Iron Man 2″ with Don Cheadle instead of Terrance Howard, or “Eclipse” with Bryce Dallas Howard instead of Rachelle Lefevre. Let us make this absolutely clear: the last thing we want are the roles of Alice and Emmett Cullen recast, but Summit has shown that they can be ruthless about casting and money in the past.
If Ashley gets the cut, here are some other young actresses we’d hope would be able to fill that gap in the film. Expect another post in the near future with suggested replacements for Kellan.
While she isn’t a big name, Lucy Hale had auditioned for the role of Alice Cullen back in the day, and we think she is young enough at age 20 and looks similar enough to Ashley Greene that the torch could be passed without too many non-Twilighters noticing the difference.
