Rachelle Lefevre out as Victoria and we want to know WHY?

rachellebluetopDear Summit-

We have one question for you: WHY?

We’ve never written you a letter before, but I think it’s time to break our silence. Now that we’ve read both the personal statement from Rachelle, your Press Release sighting “scheduling conflicts,” and now the 2nd press release sighting another film, we’d like to know the REAL REASON WHY the character of Victoria was recast. With only one film left to go in Victoria’s character arc, this is one of the biggest surprise moves you could have pulled (and at the 11th hour we might add.)

Now don’t immediately write us off as some simpering fansite looking for something to write about. We know the entertainment business is a fickle and mean bitch. Deals are created, moves are made, everything’s political, believe me: we KNOW! We both have worked and continue to work in entertainment and understand stuff happens schedules conflict, contract options don’t get picked up, and there are ALWAYS two sides to every story, but that’s not what happened here. It is clear from both your statement and Rachelle’s that she was screwed. She admits a scheduling conflict that you were trying to work through it and says she would have dropped the movie Barney’s Version if she had known her role as Victoria was going to be recast. So the question remains and we want to know, WHY?

Follow the cut to see our full letter and some of our guesses as to why…

jacobbillyDear Team Jacob-

As much as we love to rag on Taylor Lautner here (i mean he IS 16 after all), we simply couldn’t imagine someone else playing Bella’s trusty BFF in New Moon. Especially if that someone else is Micheal Copon.  Gross. In recent days rumors have been running as rampant as baby vampires in the south (HA) about the possibility of Summit recasting the role of Jacob Black. Though we all know that Jacob needs to, uh, TRANSFORM into a big dude in the next installment, the rumored names that have been on the internet simply WILL not do. Perez reported yesterday about Micheal Copon (a major toolbag and crappy actor from Scorpian King TWO).


First off, this dude’s not even native american! Ok, so maybe Taylor Lautner isn’t fully but if you really must recast go all the way, pick a hot native american guy! COME ON! I mean there’s even an entire site devoted to them! This latin/asian whatever he is dude does NOT fly with us

A good thing to remember is that both the guys featured in these rumor posts are repped by the same agent and apparently have a great publicist because this stuff is spreading like wildfire. Team Jacob, remember that this could all simply be a huge publicity stunt to try to get these two actors into the next movie.

Putting some validity behind these rumors, however, People posted a poll today asking if Taylor should return as Jacob Black… so mobilize yourselves Team Jacob and let them know what you want!

Vote for Taylor or Michael here: People.com but know if you do vote for Michael we’ll probably be writing a letter about YOU!

XO and some Wolfy love,
