We’re playing favorites (with Vampires) and think you should too

Dear LTT,

In continuing with our recap of our #RIPTwilight week together (and more specifically the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere) we wanted to share a few videos from some of our FAVORITE cast members.

We all know we love the Cullens– I mean Hello Rob yum yum forever. Jackson is WORKING it these days with 100 Monkeys and terrible outfits & hats out of his system. Even though I’m not into the big muscular type, Kellan’s personality makes up for any d-baggery and you have to love a guy who admits to reading The Purpose Driven Life. And Peter Fach is like the world’s best dad.

That’s established. But our favorite cast members as of late have been the newbies. Maybe it’s because they’re active on Twitter & we get to see their personalities. Maybe it’s because we’ve met them in person and shared a meal and some drinks (and they EAT unlike some Cullen girls who I assume do NOT) or maybe it’s just because they’re all-around good people and they deserve to be on our favorite list. Either way, here they are:

We know, you’re busy. No time to watch videos. You have time for these! Trust! 

Erik Odom

Oh Erik, we called you Z-list last year and you read it (and remember it since you mentioned it to us recently) and yet you still talk to us. We weren’t sure what was going on with your jacket at the premiere this year, but it sure was interesting to touch. And we love you because you aren’t afraid to share your deep knowledge of all things Hobby-Lobby. Plus you treat us like we’re not fans (WE AREN’T. WE’RE NORMAL PEOPLE) and your Grandma posts cute things to your Facebook wall:

Toni Trucks

Could this girl be ANY cuter? First she ends tweets with “Beep Beep” (last name is Trucks. It took me a few days to figure that one out. So smart) and then she’s the most real, down-to-earth actress I’ve ever met. Someone give this girl a sitcom. Or a role on Downton Abbey:

JD Pardo

JD is a new addition in 2012 to the “yum” list. Plus he’s on one of our fav new Fall TV shows (Revolution) and is pretty great! From what we can tell in the storyline, they’re making his role even more important, so I think he’ll be around for awhile. We have a joke with JD about visiting Wilmington, NC that comes up every time we see him (listen to the beginning of the interview & you’ll hear it) Plus we will one day do shots together. If we do shots together IN Wilmington I’m pretty sure the world will explode. Or at least the lights will go out (Revolution joke, holllaaaa):

I’ve never done red carpet interviews for any other fandoms, but I can’t imagine they are all as great as the Twilight black carpets. The actors & people involved are great to talk to– even when they get to us at the end after they’ve talk to HUNDREDS of others. I know it’s their JOB and some people are better at it than others, but we’ve had such a great experience with most cast members, especially our new favorite vamps! Oh, 1 of them is a 1/2 vamp if you want me to be technical (SPOILER ALERT)

Hope you love them as much as we do!!!

UC & Moon

Who is your favorite random Twi cast member? Don’t say Rob!

JD Pardo – We’ll do shot with you any day. If we can find an open bar.

Dear JD,

Remember when– we had no idea who you were last week? And even when you told us who you played we barely remembered? And then we were downright shocked when you said Nahuel was 150 years old. As if the Jacob imprinting on baby Renesmee wasn’t weird enough, this is another level. Cause CLEARLY SMeyer sets the end Of Breaking Dawn up with a new love triangle, Renesmee, Jacob and Nahuel. We’re on to you Stephenie. Also we desperately need to read Breaking Dawn again, this is crazy and we’ve forgotten some key plot points apparently.

ANYWAY.Can we also can tell you about how UC was talking with Calliopeblabs yesterday about you  and how you’re “the male renesmee” and she looked at UC, shocked and said “What? there’s a MALE renesmee?” Yea. So clearly you AND Nahuel have a lot of ground to cover in the whole character awareness department between now and November. But we’re pretty sure the loin clothe will make up for that. Trust me, we know this audience.

Cause this is normal

We have to say you might be one of our new favorite Twilight people (hahaha yes, you’re considered that now) because you stopped being polite and started getting REAL. No we weren’t on the Real World but you talked to us about stuff besides character development and the movie and blahblahblaaahblah. Important stuff like your favorite LA bars, what non-Tom Hanks movies are your favorite, why we should defs take those free archery lessons and how it’s hard out there for a Gucci model. OH WAIT. No.

After the night mercifully ended without those shots UC kept trying to push on us we went home to do some Google stalking research.

Things we found out about you –

The photos on your IMDB really don’t do you justice, whoever chose those should be fired and replaced be us. We would love to add “IMDB Picture Choosers” (technical term) to our business cards (under Vampire bloggers, Ryan Gosling enthusiasts, Froyo specialists and Gin taste testers, natch).

Witness:

The Gucci days?? We hope.

From your audition from the OC??

May we suggest one of these:

I might also suggest sending you for some new headshots. We know a great photographer who would shot you in the forest (aka Griffith Park) wearing cocktail dresses reading Twilight magazine. Not that we would have ANY personal first hand experience with this, but it’s just a hunch. Let us know, we’ll hook it up!

Yup, just as normal

So in our research we also found out you were on the OC, our most favorite show of all time as “Tattooed surfer / Tattooed Guy.” Clearly, a character almost as awesome as Seth Cohen. ALMOST. This also puts you in the special Twilight/The OC club along with Jackson Rathbone and Cam Gigandet. Nice work.
The most exciting thing though is that you’re going to be the “bow and arrow guy” (official character name according to us) on the new NBC/JJ Abrams show Revolution. No joke we were super pumped before we even knew you and know we’re even more excited cause we sorta talked to you one night and you’re IN the show with a Mr. Billy Burke. Can you get him to drunk Tweet again? That was always a good time. ANYWAY. Check it y’all!

Yup. You’re the Katniss of the new JJ Abrams show, congrats! And congrats on getting a semi nice letter from us, obvi we sorta think you’re cool.

Can’t wait to see Nahuel in November!

Shots!
Moon & UC

PS We already checked the Mega Bus schedule. See you in Wilmington.

Storytime with UC & Moon: Our “romantic getaway” together in LA

Dear Twilight,

I know you were just THRILLED to hear via Twitter and Facebook that Moon & I were reunited again for a sweet 2 days last week in Los Angeles. And I can imagine you’ve been wondering whatever the reason would be for UC fly across the country to spend less than 48 hours in California (especially when she’ll be going back to LA in less than 10 days time for vacation.) Well, today is the day when you get to hear alllll about it.

Tuesday morning I (UC) flew to LA on a flight that she didn’t miss and with Larry411 no where in sight (read about the first quick trip to LA that was almost disastrous here) It was a little sad, actually. Everything was so Normal. A quick 5 hours and 1 Chris Pine movie later, I arrived in LA to a kick-ass hotel in Hollywood complete with an in-room record player & stocked mini-bar that was raided approximately 1 hour after arrival:

After Moon arrived and hugs were given and we exchanged almost identical birthday gifts (ring holders!) we went to attend our very first activity, basically the reason I flew across the country. Yep, you guessed it- We put our hands & feet in ROBSTEN’s hands and feet. (Poor Taylor)

Let me tell you what this was like. It was MAGICAL. First of all, I have the same size hands as Kristen. This probably means we’re fake lesbian soul mates or something. Secondly, there were CRUMBS in Rob’s footprints which is just so typical isn’t it? Thirdly, this Japanese MALE tourist was in line before us (oh yes.. there was a LINE for the ROBSTEN hand prints) and he took about 12 pictures of himself and the hand & footprints. A UNICORN ALL THE WAY FROM JAPAN, GUYS!

Next we helped ourselves to Gin & Tonics in the hotel room while we did some “work.” And by “Work” I mean we had a google hangout with @brookelockart about a super secret project we may or may not be involved with. Eventually we met up with some other Twi blogger pals & headed to the hotel restaurant for what we assumed was a meet up with Japan’s biggest Twilight fan (coincidentally he’s the Unicorn we saw earlier) but instead we were AMBUSHED by a table of Breaking Dawn cast members. We recognized ONE of them (Congrats Erik Odom!) so we quickly sat down in case we were going to be quizzed about their character’s names during dinner (we weren’t)

During plate after plate of Greek tapas & red wine we got a chance to chat with most of the cast that was there. Don’t worry guys– UC & Moon were ON– we asked all the hard hitting questions like “What helped you get into character during the 2 scenes you were in?” and  “Do you have the kind of relationship with Rob Pattinson where you could call him up to hang out?” adding “Can we call him now?” plus  “No? Can I have his number” and of course “How has Twilight changed your life?”

Actually we asked none of that and instead our questions were more like, “What’s your favorite bar in LA?” or “Have any new iPhone apps I need to try?” and “What kind of dog do you have?” because we don’t really care about any of that other stuff.

And then we took a picture of course:

From Left to right name & character & some fun facts:

Toni Trucks– she plays Mary. We can’t remember who Mary is. She says “Beep” after she tweets. We assume because her last name is Trucks. She’ll be on a new law drama this fall & is moving to New York to start filming. Super Sweet gal!

Noel Fisher– he plays Vladimir and is MUCH less albino in real life than he is on screen. In fact, he’s not Albino at all.

Unintended Choice — I play whoever you want me to play. And yes this picture was after a lot of wine which is why it looks like my dress is falling of and I’m up in Moon’s business.

TheMoonisDown — She plays my bff & Vampire life partner. And LOOK at her killer heels (I tripped over them and fell over COMPLETELY btw)

Jd Pardo– He plays Nahuel and is our new (and only) half-vampire crush. He is SUPER nice and not too bad to look at at all. A real “Letter to JD” coming soon. Stay tuned.

Erik Odom– He plays Peter and was, like I said earlier, the only guy we actually recognized. He’s also the one we called C-list that one time and who tweeted us about it. We didn’t remind him of that at dinner, but since we’re mentioning it again and probably tweeting him today, we think he’ll remember. SORRY ERIK WE <3 YOU!

Missing from the pic was Casey Labow who had to leave early. She plays Kate from the Denali Clan. Oh and we can’t forget Jack Morrissey — partner to Bill Condon & beloved hero of “Team Jack.” We chatted with Jack for awhile, but I was on glass of wine #3 and I can’t remember much.

And before you’re impressed with my Twilight-blogging skills, Yes, I had to look up most all of the character names.

More after the Jump!
