According to our calculations, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is currently filming in Louisiana. We’ve already heard most of the actors new to the franchise in high profile roles — Maggie Grace as Irina, Lee Pace as Garrett, Rami Malek as Benjamin. Summit has incrementally added new cast members, with another batch announced today.
Olga Fonda (Love Hurts), Janelle Froehlich (Hacienda Heights), Masami Kosaka (The Runaways), Sebastiao Lemos (Força-Tarefa), Amadou Ly (The Bridge), Ty Olsson (2012), Wendell Pierce (Ray), Carolina Virguez (Matalobos) will join Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and the rest of the Twilight regulars when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 hits theaters November 18, 2011. Part 2 follows on November 16, 2012. Hit the jump for a recap a comprehensive look at the new cast members and the characters they’ll play.
The announcement didn’t specify who Fonda and Co. will play, which is too bad. I’d love to see where Pierce fits in.
But up until now each actor has been dutifully matched up to a character from the books.
