Newcomer Xavier Samuel Cast As Riley In “Eclipse”

Summit Entertainment has tapped Australian newcomer Xavier Samuel to play Riley in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third film in the franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s megaselling novels, according to the Hollywood Reporter’s Risky Business blog.

As fans of the series know, Riley starts off as a plain, old human college student, only to fall under the spell of the increasingly vengeful Victoria and, as a newborn vampire, join her crusade against Bella.

Among the names bandied about for the Riley role were Tom Felton “Draco Malfoy” and Channing Tatum, whom screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg once said would play the part “beautifully.”

Eclipse is expected to start shooting sometime next month in Vancouver in time for its June 30, 2010 release, while Twilight fans are expected to go into overdrive any day now as they await the Nov. 20 arrival of New Moon.
