But he was a definite choice for author Stephenie Meyer, who had included Jackson on her favorite suggestions list of possible Edwards on her website in July, 2007 before casting was finished (Robert Pattinson was one of the more popular suggestions, but Henry Cavill was her first choice). Jackson emphasized he felt, in both cases, Rob was the first choice once the actors had been narrowed down.
"I think he's the best man for the job," Jackson said. "I wouldn't have another Edward Cullen than Robert Pattinson. He's perfect."
Had the tables turned and Jackson got the part, it could have been his face lining the tabloid articles he told us he liked to laugh at. Somehow, when he informed us, "I love playing Jasper," we're also assuming he loved missing a huge, gossip-driven bullet (Jackson talks more about that "bullet," er the endless Robert Pattinson- Kristen Stewart romance rumors, at MTV.com).
From USA Weekend (you can pick up a copy starting today):
Biting off more than he can chew? Bela Lugosi never had to deal with hordes of screaming teenage girls like Robert Pattinson does.
But that's just the appeal of Edward Cullen, the brooding vampire Pattinson plays onscreen and the love interest in Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" book series. Last fall's "Twilight" movie began the love affair between Edward and the shy human girl Bella (Kristen Stewart); the sequel, "New Moon," out Nov. 20, finds Edward banishing himself from Bella's life.
To get a modern image of a vampire, Pattinson initially watched movies such as "Interview With the Vampire" and "Blade." But he really discovered who Edward was by researching outcast roles not involving the undead. "Rebel Without a Cause was a big influence on the first ["Twilight" film] -- it influenced the hairdo and stuff," Pattinson says, laughing. "In lots of ways, it has a very similar character arc: An everyday girl brings this relatively strange individual out of his slump."
A James Dean type -- that is, Pattinson -- always attracts teenage girls in flocks. "It's like The Birds, with teenage girls," says "New Moon" director Chris Weitz. "You turn around, and there would be a line of girls standing there."
Pattinson, 23, a native of London, takes all the swooning over his lanky, 6-foot-tall frame and wildly styled hair in stride. "I'm not entirely sure what it is," he says. "I'll probably realize afterward how I could have controlled it a little bit more. But I am still like a deer in headlights."
And there's the fact that many haven't yet separated Pattinson the actor from Edward the vampire. "Right at the beginning, everyone just called me Edward," he says. "I don't really mind either way. There's something about that character that, for some reason, has sparked an interest in massive degrees in so many different people. "
If you want to compete with your own character, you have to really fight. I don't know if I could be bothered to fight," he says, chuckling again. "I just let it go by."
Three young actors playing the mean blood-suckers of the Volturi coven and the film's screenwriter were in Rome to promote the film, part of a successful franchise that is drawing comparisons with the Harry Potter phenomenon.
In "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," teenager Bella Swan and her vampire love Edward Cullen, played by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, separate because he fears he is putting her in danger.
While she befriends a werewolf, Edward retreats to Italy, where he meets the Volturi -- the powerful law enforcers of the vampire world.
Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg said the fascination of young people -- particularly teenage girls -- with the Twilight films, based on the best-selling romance novels by Stephenie Meyer, came from the fact that they "speak to universal themes and experiences of heartbreak and first love.
"Everyone has gone through it or is going through it. ... I think also this very chaste sexuality, it is very passionate but safe. So it's very tantalizing," she told Reuters in an interview.
"I think Harry Potter is much more fantastical. The Twilight series has its fantastic elements very grounded in reality, it's set in reality, so they are very different."
The first Twilight movie was a smash hit that grossed $383 million worldwide. "New Moon" is more emotional, has more action and gives greater space to the more violent, dark side of the vampire world -- like the Volturi clan.
"There is this scene where this dude gets his face torn off and it was pretty fun to sit and watch that happen, to be evil and smile at it. That's my favorite scene," said Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays one of the Volturi leaders.
Among teenagers, 20-year-old Campbell Bower is already a rising star in his own right -- he is also set to appear in the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films.
But like the other actors who flew to Rome, he said he felt the pressure of millions of fans of the Twilight stories, and the media circus that goes with it.
Lead actors Pattinson and Stewart, who were not in Rome, became instant celebrities after the first film.
Tickets for the preview of "New Moon" were sold out in just a few hours, and hundreds of screaming teenagers braved the rain to greet the three Volturi on the red carpet.
"Going in to do a film like Twilight, when they've already done the first one, is a daunting experience, let alone without the fan base," Campbell Bower told Reuters.
"So when you throw the fan base in there, there is a definite pressure. I hope that I have done as much as I can to make the fans happy. I did the best I could and if you hate it, I'm really sorry."
The film's U.S. release is scheduled for Nov. 20.
An insider on the set of the currently filming Twilight sequel Eclipse has been spilling secrets to OK! Magazine, and one of the more amusing revelations is that, after filming their kissing scenes, Pattinson and his co-star Kristen Stewart burst into laughing fits.
The set insider says,
“Kristen’s the first to laugh, cracking up like a schoolgirl."
After the laughter dies down, the co-stars and rumored real-life couple typically run off set to grab a cigarette, the insider adds.
In marked contrast to Robsten's kiss-and-giggle routine, Eclipse star Taylor Lautner—who plays boy-wolf Jacob Black in the vampire flicks—approaches the task of lip-locking with K-Stew very seriously.
During a recently lensed Bella-Jacob kissing scene, the insider reveals,
"Taylor Lautner was way into it. He didn’t break character after director David Slade yelled, ‘Cut!’"
But really, who could blame him?

Clip1: behind the scenes of the Volturi cove, more Robward @ the ground, the fight & Aro talking..Scary!
Based on location and who was there - they were likely filming some more battle scenes.
Despite the rain, then sun, then fog, production started early and while some cast were off by mid-day, many stayed quite late.
Jodelle tweeted today:
Last day on Eclipse....=/
While Anna Kendrick tweeted today:
On hold in Vancouver today. The Informant! A Serious Man. Where the Wild Things Are. All in all, not a bad day. Last day of shooting tmrw.
Finally David Slade tweeted today:
Last day on the battlefield, shot a huge day, tomorrow there may be a party, while battles ensue on mountain tops...
It was, as I mentioned previously a long day for some cast.... I am guessing this "party" is the graduation party (the last scene Anna Kendrick has to film here in studio) while the other scene will include the tent battle scene they recently shot (perhaps follow up? reshoots? in studio again or elsewhere?)
It is true, it is all about to come to an end.
What an exciting ride it has been :)
