What do you think of the casting rumors surrounding Lee Pace?  Can you see him as Garrett?  I loved him in “Pushing Daisies” and I think that he’d make an excellent Garrett.  I can’t wait to see him give the Volturi a piece of his mind!

What do you think about the reasons for why girls allegedly love vampires?  I have to take a bit of exception with the article because (IMHO) I don’t think that the appeal of the Twilight books is necessarily the vampires.  It’s a tale of epic love with supernatural elements.  You have two characters who will do anything for the love of their life/existence who have the opportunity to truly be together for eternity, surrounded by an eternal family.  For me, Twilight is about first love, sacrifice, and eternal bonds.
