Tom Felton: Rumored for Role in Eclipse

by at . Comments

Robert Pattinson may be the object of every female's affection these days due to his role in Twilight, but the actor got his first big screen break in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Now, a former co-star of his is up for a role in the Twilight Saga.

Tom Felton Wins!

Rumors are circulating that Tom Felton - who has made a name for himself by appearing in every Harry Potter film as the evil Draco Malfoy - may land the part of Riley in Eclipse.

While New Moon doesn't even hit theaters until November, it's not too early to speculate about various Eclipse casting calls; the third film in this beloved franchise will be released on June 30, 2010.

In response to the rumors, Felton recently posted the following on his fan site,, and Twitter page, respectively:

"Ill be ready when they want me! Really, I'm only joking. Im not really sure at this point; but you will be the first to know if I find out anything... i keep getting asked if im being cast as Riley in Twilight! Ill let you all know if so!!!"

The Harry Potter/Twilight connections don't end with Pattinson and Felton: Jamie Campbell Bower will portray Caius in New Moon, along with Gellert Grindelwald in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Do you think Tom Felton should play Riley in Eclipse?
