On November 20, millions of Twilighters will pack movie theaters worldwide, eager to see “New Moon” and meet the actors who will portray Volturi vampires, werewolves and other newcomers to the franchise. And, in a cast as huge as the “Twilight Saga,” some of the actors are looking forward to those introductions as well.
“The cast is so big now,” said Justin Chon, who plays “human” Eric Yorkie. “Seriously, it’s like an army. You really don’t get to meet everyone.
“The premiere is going to be wild; it’s gonna be a zoo,” he laughed, sounding for a minute like a super-fan. “I want to meet Michael Sheen!”
This week, we interviewed “Twilight” veteran Billy Burke, who also said he has yet to meet Sheen, Dakota Fanning or Bryce Dallas Howard and is eager to do so later this month at the Los Angeles premiere.
“Recently, I had met all the wolf pack, but I finally met Tin[sel Korey] and Bronson [Pelletier] maybe two weeks ago,” Chon said. “And I was like, ‘God, I feel like I already know you, but this is the first time I’m meeting you!’ That is so wild.
“I haven’t met [Dakota Fanning] either, because they’re Volturi and they shot a lot of their stuff in Italy,” said the 28-year-old actor. “I’m always in Forks.”
Unfortunately, the Forks scenes have left actors like Chon, Michael Welch, Anna Kendrick and other humans feeling like Tom Arnold in “True Lies”: stuck in the van while everyone else is off having fun.
“Yeah,” he laughed at the analogy. “That’s so funny.”
But when he does finally meet his co-stars, Justin has already prepared what he’ll have to say. “I would be like, ‘Yo, Mike! You’re an amazing actor and I can’t believe I’m even in this same movie as you!’ ” he said. ” ‘Or Dakota Fanning!’ “
