Lee Pace: Robert Pattinson's 'Breaking Dawn' BFF?

Pushing Daisies alum Lee Pace may be the next actor to join the cast of Breaking Dawn!

The 31-year-old actor is “the top person to play Garrett” in the film, a source tells E! News.

Garrett is one of Edward Cullen’s friends – he’s a down-to-earth, rugged and nomadic vampire who has long sandy hair that he ties back in a ponytail.

DO YOU THINK Lee is a good choice to play Garrett – YAY or NAY?

  • Anug6469

    Oh please let it come true. LOVE LEE!!!

  • Lucy

    God, he’s a great actor, he must stay away from that s*it.

  • Crittle

    Lee Pace is amazing sooo…. he should stay away from it

  • Amy

    Lee is too good for this. i am dissapoint. :[

  • Lizz

    OMG I love Lee Pace!!!!!! He’s such a great actor!!!! Nooo I hope he doesn’t ruin himself with the twilight stuff though!!!

  • Alaia

    Add him to the list of actors in this film that are too good for this crap.

  • Vonda

    Lee Pace is far too good for this just as he was for pushing daisies. What is he doing? Excellent in Soldier’s Girl and the Fall. The latter is a masterpiece.

  • Not Impressed by AJ

    Lee wasn’t too good for PD, he was perfect for the show!

  • Liv

    sucks for about 99.9% of the cast if he does end up in BD. he will act circles around them. He’s too good for the crap hes been doing lately. first Marmaduke now this piece of dog crap. RIP Pushing Daisies

  • Erin

    Not a fan of this guy. In other news, I just read that Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Kristen Stewart auditioned for a movie. No idea if this will happen, so take with a grain of salt. Seems like a good combo to me. Both are young, attractive actors, who may have some chemistry.

  • L

    Ugh, Lee is too good for Twilight!

  • boo

    NOOOOOOOO please LEE, stay the hell away from this crappy movie!!!!! you’re a very talented actor,



  • Jessie

    No offense to Twilight fans, but Lee Pace was wwwwaaaaaayyyyyyy too good in Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies.

  • Love

    say it isn’t so! he is one of the most underrated talented actors in Hollywood, he was brilliant in The falls, miss pettigrew, Pushing daisies and even in Possession, so what on earth would he be doing in BD???? I hate twilight series, yeah I admit it, I hate it..but I’m a huge fan of Lee, so please don’t make me watch BD just to see him in it !! Say no Lee!! SAY NOOO

  • grenade

    yikes this is frightening i so hope it is not true, lee pace is way too amazing and talented for this stuff

  • Reese

    One word…YES! The best part is Lee will get way more exposure from BD.

  • Jen

    who qives a shit if hes a qud actor , this will make him more famous ! dahh . no one will care anyway . its all bout Rbert :DDDD , kristen :DDDD, & taylor:)

  • ABC

    NO. Please don’t ruin your resume with a Twilight movie on it.
    But then again Marmaduke doesn’t really help. Hope he does more films like The Fall.

  • Not Impressed by AJ


    I always care more about lee than Rpatz, Lee acts better.

  • JJ

    I love Lee !! Even though he is too good to be in BD , it will be nice to see him in it … !! so YAY !!!

  • jl

    He may be too good for twilight, but hopefully it will get him more recognised and people can appreciate his awesomeness.

  • gosh

    OMG! you gotta be kidding me! Ofcourse Robert will better than him at Breaking dawn. We know Lee is good.

    But we need Robert!!

  • w11

    Lee Pace is better than this. C’mon Lee, first Marmaduke and now this? No.

  • lydia

    nay… he just doesnt look rite for the part

  • Ashlee

    Lee Pace is an amazing actor, just like Bryce Dallas Howard, I think he should do it. Be a part of this trend. It’d be like someone so amazing doing a cameo. It’s classy!

  • jen


    too many mediocre actors in twilight, at least someone will be in it that is actually good.

  • Jen_Emmm

    I was super excited for the possibility to see Lee starring in BD (cuz frankly I haven’t seen him in awhile) but reading all your posts I must say have to agree! You guys are right, he’s a different calliber actor for the Twilight series – and no offense Twilight fans! Don’t get me wrong, I dig the whole Twilight series – but he’s been involved in too many critically acclaimed projects to do Twilight. Again, no offense to the TwiHards!

    Then again, it’s a great way for Lee to be seen by a more general audience. The world needs more Lee!

  • Ida Amity

    I think he would be great as Garret. I did not particularly like Pushing Daisies but I did like him as an actor.

  • Jen

    garret isnt really one of edward cullens closest friends hes just an acquaintence

  • Sophie


  • thebeard

    OMG LOVEEEEEEEEEE GARRETT AND LOVEEEEEEEEEEE LEE PACE! miss pettigrew lives for a day is the best!!!

  • mae

    KYaaaa! Lee Pace I love him especially on Pushing daisies and The Good Shepherd, such a great actor but why join Twilight??? >_<

  • DRgirl

    Oh my gosh, he fits the entire description. Wow! Great choice! I think he would be perfect bringing Garrett to life. Just wow!

  • boston61

    They could pass for brothers.

  • mimi

    Nice guy. Good choice

  • mimi

    Wtf with the “he is too good for this” comments??? It’s not like they forced him to take this part! Now I don’t like this guy, thanks.

  • lara

    yes please…he is adorable !!

  • Carrie

    Yes! He would be awesome for the role!

  • Tink

    Why does it say Garrett is one of Edward’s friends or say Edward’s BFF? Garrett is NEITHER. He’s a nomad friend of Carlisle that gets told of the plight the of the Cullens and decides to join the cause because he sees it much like the fight for American independence when he was turned.

    Pace would make a great Garrett. Just dont screw up his wig!

  • brenda

    the two guys are ugly,but rob is the worst,he is only a fashion ,nothing important

  • Push

    He should play Garret!!! He´s GREAT so he should show that he can play in various kinds of films!!! I love him and I pray for that :directors will choose him!!!

  • briez

    hate it or love it the twilight franchise is huge and lee should be considerd lucky to be apart of it . i dnt understand why ppl degrade twilight movies so much i mean come on are you jealous of the attention the characters and actors get or thier great looks (minus jacob) or do you simply just hate the movie if so get over it we dont care for your opinion u twi haters say the hype about twilight is stupid when your apart of the hype ranting about the cons of the films WAKE UP AND SMELL THE DAISYS, ur as bad as the rest

  • Meg

    This would get him heaps of good exposure…
    but it would suck to see him in such a piece of crap. There are better mainstream movies he can make his name in Hollywood with.

  • Kristin

    YAY!!! I LOVE him!!!! =)

  • ligiryan


  • Pam

    Yeeeees, he is such a great actor! and i loved to see him in pushing daisies, with a “touch of magic” he will become garrett, YEEEEESSS!!!

  • Samantha

    u’re right Lee is just good for his self,,no one can take Robert’s place on TWILIGHT

  • Samantha

    lee is just a bullshit,,nothing else,,
