We have from a reliable source that Jackson Rathbone has been cast as Jasper. If you all remember Stephenie had originally had him as one of her Edward picks. Jackson’s IMDb can be found here. There is also a Jackson Rathbone fansite.
On another note MTV has posted an article about new cast members Nikki Reed, Cam Gigandet, Michael Welch, and Rachelle Leferve. There is also this article on MTV.
According to MTV.com there have been two additions to the cast of Twilight. I can agree with the choice for Jessica, but the choice for Mike Newton has baffled me. Did I miss something while reading the description of Mike? I’m going to have to go back a read it again!
The movie release date is set at December 12, 2008. This is a huge year for Stephenie!

“Rocket Science” actress Anna Kendrick and “Just Jordan” star Justin Chon are the latest additions to the soon-to-shoot vampire flick, joining Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison (a.k.a. Cedric Diggory in the “Potter” series). Based on the #1 best-selling series by Stephenie Meyer, the flick begins shooting in Washington at the end of this month with “Thirteen” filmmaker Catherine Hardwicke at the helm, and is intended to launch a series containing at least three films.
