Xavier Samuel: Twilight's Newest Star For 'Eclipse'

Xavier Samuel: Twilight's Newest Star For 'Eclipse'

Australian baby face Xavier Samuel has been cast in Eclipse, the third flick in the Twilight franchise.

“I don’t have any facial hair, so it will be a while before I play the gruff leading man,” Xavier has said. “Maybe one day I’ll get to play my actual age. For now my baby face has condemned me to play the teenager.”

According to THR, Xavier, 25, will play newborn vampire Riley, a good-looking college student who joins the plot of villain Victoria to murder protagonist Bella (Kristen Stewart). Riley is corrupted by Victoria, for whom he has an inexplicable weakness.

Eclipse stars shooting next month in Vancouver.

I LOVED him in “Newcastle”!!

NOOOO!!!!! I wanted Tom Felton!!!!!! He’s cute but no where close to Tom

i dont think so. it’ll be better if it’s chace crawford.

Interesting plot….very interesting…..inexplicable even.

i think he is sorta cute but the vision in my head from reading the book i thought he would be blonde :s

I hope it’s good. I hope it’s not a disappointment. Sometimes sequels don’t live up to their hype. Sometimes they are completely misleading. Well, Stephenie is a quality writer and a quality person, so I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. She hasn’t disappointed me yet, so I’ll just bet this will turn out to be a classic.

Finally a aussie in this movie!
I think he is supper hot and that he is perfect. Better looking the Rob too!
If i was Bella i would let him attack me

He looks lite HUNTER PARRISH from weeds.

ehh. he’s alright. they definitley could have picked a better riley.
cant see this guy going head to head with edward.

he suits Riley :)

Totally cool!!!!!

These pictures do not do him justice. Trust me. He is very cute!! And more importantly a lovely person.

i was soo hoping it would be Tom Felton – Malfoy from harry potter. he is so cute and he was really good in half blood prince. if not him i would have wanted channing tatum to be riley.

OMG! He will be perfect! What a cutie :)

And his an AUSSIE!
Yayayyaa, I’m an Aussie too.
That is all. For now (x

^Hallelujah I agree. Twilighters have so many expectations and throw tantrums when things don’t go their way eurgh. Xavier is cute, not hot. And yes, I am probably biased because he’s Australian.

He is exactly how I saw Riley in my head. There were rumors of a few bigger names up for this part but none of them were very close to the book. I think this was great casting on physicality but we’ll see how he does with acting.

not bad, not bad… X)
but I thought Channing Totum was going to play Riley??? :(

wow I think he is PERFECT

hello*beautiful @ 07/17/2009 at 10:23 am

He looks like he could play the part very well.. i wish him the BEST of luck, and people don’t need to judge him until they see the movie. Remember when many were sayng ew to robert pattinson- now look what happened. He’s a hearthrob. Congrats Xavier Samuel & good luck :)

YES!!!! he definitely fits Riley’s character, actually he’s close to how I pictured him :)
He’s cute

He’s cute, but I really can’t see him as Riley.

oooo he’s cute, and i have a thing for australian accents! though im sure he wont use that in the movie. i thought channing tatum was gonna play riley. though i think Xavier is better cause he looks younger and isnt all macho muscular

he’s gorgeous,
but i wonder how he’s gonna do…..
