“BREAKING DAWN” CASTING UPDATE
When the casting for some of the lesser roles was announced, Summit did not specify the characters to be portrayed by some of the actors. Among them were Wendell Pierce and Ty Olsson. There was speculation as to which actor might be playing the mysterious J. Jenks. We now have confirmation that Jenks will NOT be played by Ty Olsson, as he is playing the role of Bella’s step-father, Phil Dwyer (previously played by Matt Bushnell in the first installment of the Saga). As of today, IMDb does not list anyone playing the role of Jenks. Is it safe to assume that he will be played by Pierce, as he is pretty much the only other actor listed without a character name associated with his profile?
