Xavier Samuel to play Riley in Eclipse


THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Twilight movie ‘Eclipse’ has its first new casting

By Steven Zeitchik
July 16, 2009

Google might want to brace for a search onslaught: An unknown Australian actor named Xavier Samuel has landed the first new role in “Eclipse,” the third “Twilight” pic.

Summit has hired the actor to play the role of a “newborn vampire” named 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.

Samuel, repped by Management 360, Gersh and Shanahan in Australia, has been in series of films down under, including “Newcastle,” in which he played a Goth teenager amidst a group of surfers (the movie played Tribeca last year — though you can bet Netflix will see just a small spike now), the Aussie period drama “September” and the upcoming sci-fi thriller “Road Train.” This marks his first U.S. role.

“Eclipse,” the third book in Stephenie Meyer’s blockbuster series, is set
to begin shooting next month in Vancouver and be released on June 30. David Slade (“30 Days of Night”) is directing from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg.
