I was surprised shocked…when I saw this news on E News yesterday night…or was it the day before? Anyhow Dakota Fanning is after all…like the biggest child actor of our time…and she’s supposedly in talks to do New Moon…which could only escalate New Moon’s buzz factor right? Next question I asked myself…what role is she supposed to play, because the E News episode I watched did not mention any roles. It took me a while…a pretty long while, before I thought duhhh…It has to be Jane. Who else could it be? Jane (Read Jane's character profile here) is suppose to be this young petite teenage girl and Dakota’s pretty ethereal looking to be a vampire…Not since Interview with the Vampire have we seen a major iconic child vampire character on our screens. But wait a minute…although I haven’t read Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, I understand Jane also make appearances in those…and Dakota still being a kid…who is growing…her growth would be blatantly obvious…Jane is a Vampire remember!…She doesn’t grow older…period…I’m not against Dakota playing Jane…I think it’ll be interesting to see her in that role. But if they are going to have the character appear in the rest of the movies I would also think it be safer to cast a young looking 18-20 plus actress…whose growth spurt has slowed down and who wouldn’t actually be growing up in front of the screens...But anyway, for now it does seem true that Summit is considering her…Dakota herself has confirmed that she is in talks for the role. You can read a post at HisGoldenEyes.com here that has collated all the articles regarding Dakota’s link to the role. Now I wonder who they are thinking off for Alec?
