Rumor has it that either Vanessa Hudgens or Brenda Song may be cast in the role of Leah Clearwater in the Twilight sequel. Now, according to industry sources, several other names have been mentioned as possible candidates for other roles.
Among them, Mario Lopez for the role of Sam, and Alexis Bledel in the role of Lauren. Other names being mentioned include Melissa Joan Hart, Melissa McCarthy and Selena Gomez. Although their names have not been linked to any specific part, I really hope they'll improve the popularity of this otherwise pointless story.
The Twilight sequel is slated to be released in the summer of 2009.
The movies are based on the novels by Stephanie Meyer.
