Xavier Samuel: Cast as Riley in Eclipse

by at . Comments

Pssst, Bella:

You might wanna stop thinking about a make out session with Jacob and start running for your life.

Producers have found an actor to take on the role of Riley in Eclipse, the relatively new vampire that is tasked with one mission by Victoria: murder Bella!

His name is Xavier Samuel, he's a little-known Australian star and Eclipse will actually mark his big screen debut in America. We hope he's prepared for the fame that's sure to follow.

Not much is known about Samuel, though he's on record as saying:

“I don’t have any facial hair, so it will be a while before I play the gruff leading man. Maybe one day I’ll get to play my actual age. For now my baby face has condemned me to play the teenager.”

Harry Potter star Tom Felton had been rumored for the role of Riley. Think the movie made the right choice with Xavier? Click on the following images to get a closer look at him...
