Sure, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may fit the characters of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan like a glove, but what if Stephenie Meyer’s vamp classic was written during the high-flying, colorful 1980s? Who would glitter in the sun during the era of John Hughes and the Brat Pack?
River Phoenix as Edward Cullen: Before Zac Efron, the Jonas Brothers and … yes, Robert Pattinson … there was River Phoenix. The 80s heartthrob starred in classic films and got nominated for an Oscar at age 18. His promising career was cut short in 1993 when the star was tragically found dead of a drug overdose in Los Angeles.
Ally Sheedy as Bella Swan: Best known as the quiet, quirky member of the Breakfast Club, is also a dead ringer for the girl that would eventually bring Bella to life.
Johnny Depp as Jacob Black: Yes ladies, before he became the hot Johnny Depp of the 1990s and 2000s, he was the hot Johnny Depp of the 1980s. He brings the sexy protectiveness that a role like Jacob needs. And he even had long hair back then!

I think this is really hilarious. And I love the actors Brian Jacks chose – especially Kiefer Sutherland and Elisabeth Shue as Emmett and Rosalie!
What’s about you – do you know the actors of the 80th and do you agree in the points they should play Edward, Bella & co.?
