OK so now the media is giving their two cents about this switcheroo.
Apparently they think the casting of Bryce Dallas Howard is a move made by the studio to attract more male fans to the franchise. Howard’s last role was as Christian Bale’s girlfriend in Terminator:Salvation. She was also the star of Spider Man 3. And we all know Eclipse is the MOST action packed of the Saga (yes even Breaking Dawn). If they can get dudes on board wanting to see it too, think of all the dollar$ to be made!!
A LOT of fans feel like if it had really been Rachelle’s decision, she would be tweeting about it, since she is an “avid tweeter”. Something’s fishy in Forks, indeed.
I am really pissed Summit had the nerve to say that Rachelle brought the chracter to “life”, but that Bryce will bring Victoria “new dimension”. I call bullshit. Again.
So in conclusion, if this change was really Rachelle’s own personal decision, then I would do my best to try to envision this chick as Victoria. BUT if this was some dick move made by Summit to attract male fans, and they blindsided this lovely actress, then I will not be so supportive.
I wonder how the rest of the cast feels. Do they feel as betrayed as the rest of us? haha…
