AN INTERVIEW WITH MELISSA ROSENBERG
Earthsmightiest.com recently posted the audio of an exclusive interview with screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg from November 2009 in which she talks about New Moon and what it was like to work with the different directors on each installment in the Twilight Saga.
KRISTEN STEWART TO APPEAR ON JAY LENO ON MARCH 10
With the press junket getting into full-swing for “The Runaways”, Kristen Stewart will appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Wednesday, March 10. Dakota Fanning will hit the show on Friday, March 12.
CAN KRISTEN STEWART USE “THE RUNAWAYS” TO BECOME A SERIOUS ACTRESS
Only one week after her “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson will attempt to show off his more serious acting chops in “Remember Me,” Kristen Stewart will also stray from the world of vampires with “The Runaways.”
Surprisingly, it’s not Stewart but Fanning who seems to shine in the film. Fanning is known for her more innocent roles in “I Am Sam” and “The Secret Life of Bees,” but we were surprised by how much we bought Currie’s penchant for hard partying. Stewart, meanwhile, seems to be channeling the persona the public has assigned to her: a surly, rebellious teen who wants to do things her own way. The question, of course, is whether she has the versatility to pull off roles that go beyond that of the mopey Bella Swan ingenue in “Twilight” and “New Moon.” Despite the glimmers of possibility she flashed in “Adventureland,” from the bits we’ve see in this trailer, we have our doubts.

DVR ALERT: ROBERT PATTINSON TO APPEAR ON “THE EARLY SHOW” ON MARCH 9
Set your DVR for another Robert Pattinson TV interview. GossipCop.com has confirmed that Robert Pattinson will appear on CBS’ “The Early Show” on Tuesday, March 9 in a segment he taped after the show’s regular broadcast three days ago.
KELLAN LUTZ TO APPEAR IN “A MISFITS’ CHRISTMAS”
It has been reported that Kellan Lutz will star in a film called “A Misfits’ Christmas” along with Ashley Tisdale and Brittany Snow. The film is centered around eight friends celebrating Christmas together.
“[Misfits’] an escalating drama about eight friends who spend consecutive Christmas Eve’s together during their four years of college,” explains writer/director Tabb. “As we drop in on them annually, we watch the characters lose their innocence and form a dysfunctional family with interwoven relationships.
I’ll admit that Melissa Rosenberg’s interviews generally get on my nerves because she didn’t really seem to get which scenes were critical in the first movie, but this one has actually impressed me. I love her comments on how she and Chris Weitz would have been “tarred and feathered” if they didn’t include the scene where Jacob takes off his shirt to tend to Bella’s head wound when she wipes out on the motorcycle. It’s interesting to hear her take on working with three different directors on the same series.
As always, I love to see news of other Twilight cast members picking up new roles. I’m looking forward to seeing Kellan in the “Nightmare on Elm Street” remake. It will be interesting to see how this movie shapes up.
Rob and Kristen have a lot riding on their performances in “Remember Me” and “The Runaways”. It seems that too many critics view them as teen heartthrobs and not as actors to take seriously. I’m pleased to see that Rob has been getting lots of praise for his performance in “Remember Me”. I hope that Kristen shares the same good fortune. It bothers me that the author of the LA Times article is basing their assessment on the freakin’ trailer. It’s not like Kristen lacks talent…unlike some of the bimbos who constantly greet us on magazine covers in the grocery store checkout line.
