Here are some excerpts from Burke's chat with RMN:

On his Red Riding Hood role: It’s slightly, pardon the metaphor, off the path of the fairytale. I play Red Riding Hood's drunken, misguided father. It was one of the most beautiful sets I’ve ever been on. I kind of look like the drunken jolly green giant.

On working with Catherine Hardwicke on both films: When she called me and pitched me the idea, I was all in. She created the Twilight world and she did an amazing job with that. I figured if anyone could make a picture like this, it would be her.

On comparisons to Twilight: There is a love triangle. There’s a young girl and two gentlemen vying for her attention. That’s probably the biggest comparison.

On Charlie and Bella's post-wedding scene: I do have a scene with Kristen Stewart directly after the wedding, before they take off for the honeymoon.
