Los Angeles, California, December 10, 2007 - In a shocking and unforeseen move, Kaleb Nation has been cast as the most sought-after male in literary history.
“It was quite a shock,” Kaleb said, upon hearing of being cast as Edward Cullen, the lead character in author Stephenie Meyer‘s wildly popular series of books. “To be cast as Edward was so very…unforeseen!”
The announcement comes shortly after actress Kristen Stewart was announce to play the lead role of Bella Swan, the main character of a wildly popular series of novels by author Stephenie Meyers. Her Twilight series is currently topping the bestseller lists, selling more than even Harry Potter for the past 4 weeks.
At first, Kaleb was hesitant playing a vampire, but later overcame his fear of the changes he would have to undergo in his transformation into Edward.
“It was the teeth,” Kaleb comments. “I was so worried about those- how would I do it? But then I remembered how Cate Blanchett had to grow those ears, and then teeth didn’t seem so hard after that.”
Upon the announcement, Kaleb was whisked away to California, taking time for only one brief press conference, and he is to meet with counselors, directors and promoters of the film shortly thereafter. Another unsuspected attachment to getting the part: the fame.
“I’ve got to walk around with a bodyguard now,” Kaleb says. “Every since that announcement, people have been swarming me- and the only downside is they call me Edward, not Kaleb. They like me as him better than me as me — and the movie isn’t even out! Luckily, Tony and Romano take care of things. I try to let my fans through…”
Kaleb Nation is nineteen. He resides in Texas, where he runs a blog from his website, http://www.kalebnation.com and writes books. This will be his first film. He is very excited about the role.
“Slightly disconcerting, but still great.” he says.
The movie, which begins production February 2008, will be directed by Catherine Hardwicke. Karen Rosenfelt and Greg Mooradian will produce along with Mark Morgan.
