Pelletier joins the already announced Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene for the sequel. “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon” will be directed by Chris Weitz.

Vanessa Hudgens, Dakota Fanning, AnnaLynne McCord and Lucy Hale have been rumored for other roles. An open casting call in Canada recently brought in hundreds of hopeful “Twilight” fans looking for a role in their favorite franchise.

Carrier Talent Management, which is Bronson Pelletier’s management, broke the news on its own Web site with a posting that read: “Congratulations to Bronson who scores a lead role in the highly anticipated ‘Twilight’ feature film sequel ‘New Moon’. It’s rumored he will be co-starring with Dakota Fanning.”

As Summit Entertainment has yet to officially confirm the casting news, there’s no saying what role Bronson Pelletier will play.

“Twilight,” which stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Ashley Greene and Taylor Lautner from director Catherine Hardwicke, has grossed $189 million in the U.S. and $363 million total worldwide. This quickly put “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon” into production and has spawned many casting rumors. Other books in the Stephenie Meyer series include “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn”.

At first glance, I would

At first glance, I would have said he would be a werewolf for sure, but reading the article, it sounds like he’s headed for Alec instead. Interesting to see which role he will be playing. :)

I definitely think he’s

I definitely think he’s going to play one of the wolves. Why cast a Native American (oops, I mean First Nations boy) to play Alec? Aside from “co-starring with Dakota Fanning”, Bronson will also be co-starring with Jacob Black and Kristen Stewart. I think they only mention “co-starring with Dakota Fanning” because her name has more recognition in general. I doubt he’d play Alec though because Alec is much paler and he really doesn’t have a big part until Breaking Dawn, and Bronson supposedly has a “lead role” (definitely not Alec). I wonder if it’s Sam…. I was hoping Solomon Trimble would return as Sam though!!

I totally agree w/Kat- I

I totally agree w/Kat- I think he’ll be a werewolf, they just mentioned Dakota fanning b/c it’s a big name. I also agree about him possibly being Sam, but wanting Solomon to return as Sam… maybe he could be Quil? No one played Quil in Twilight, so that’s a definite possibility, I suppose… that would be pretty cool :) oh well, I can’t wait to find out who he’s REALLY playing, instead of just speculating about it!
