While ‘Eclipse,’ the third installment in the ‘Twilight’ saga, isn’t set to begin filming until mid-August, casting has already begun. Australian actor Xavier Samuel has been the first to be cast in the much anticipated flick due out in 2010.
Samuel will be playing the role of Riley a newborn vampire. While the star has been in a number of films in Australia, this will be the actor’s first role in the U.S.
‘Eclipse’ will pick up where this fall’s ‘New Moon’ leaves off and will focus on Bella’s (Kristen Stewart) choice between Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and Edward (Robert Pattinson).
