Bronson Pelletier, an actor best known for his appearances on the Canadaian TV show “Renegadepress” and Discovery Kids’ “Dinosapien,” has been cast in New Moon, the sequel to Twilight. Both based on Stephenie Meyer’s popular series of novels about teen vampires.
Pelletier’s role in the sequel has not been announced. But, due to his Native American heritage, many Twilight fans believe he will play one of the werewolves of the Quileute tribe.
Rumors swirl about the possible casting of Dakota Fanning, Vanessa Hudgens, AnnaLynne McCord and Lucy Hale in the sequel. But none of these actresses have been confirmed.

Last week it was reported that War Of The Worlds star Dakota Fanning was in talks for the role of Jane, the deadly Italian vampire in the upcoming sequel to Twilight, New Moon.
In an interview with ShockTillYouDrop.com Dakota said she was looking forward to becoming a vampire’s girlfriend.
The young actress confirmed she was set to join the cast in the sequel to Twilight, saying “I really hope it works out – It would be really cool to be a part of that. I’m a big fan.”
While she has not officially signed on yet, the director Chris Weitz has reportedly offered her the part in New Moon.
In New Moon, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black.
She suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires – and finds her loyalties tested.
Even though she attended the Sundance Film Festival to promote her most recent film, “Adventureland,” Kristen Stewart had no choice but to answer some questions about her most famous role so far.
Asked about the “Twilight” sequel “New Moon,” which is set to start shooting some time in March, the 18-year-old actress, who arrived at Sundance on Monday, said she is excited to start working on the second installment of the vampire saga and hopes it will go as smoothly as the first one.
Addressing the major changes since shooting the first flick, its success and sudden directorial change, from Catherine Hardwicke to Chris Weitz, Stewart said the cast and crew need to “be on the same page to make the same movie [as the original ‘Twilight’ was],” or else it will be a very disoriented project.
One of the few cast members who met Chris Weitz, Stewart said he’s “really a genuinely sweet guy and on the project for the right reasons. He’s not just jumping onto the next bandwagon. He’s into it.”
The other concern in Stewart’s mind echoes wide spread concerns regarding the actor who will play the pivotal role of Jacob Black — and whether she and Taylor Lautner, who was confirmed for the role, would be able to establish the same sort of chemistry that she had with Robert Pattinson in “Twilight.” In the sequel, Lautner’s character starts a romantic relationship with Bella Swan, Stewart’s character.
“I’m so glad they didn’t have to find somebody else; we already had him! I didn’t understand all the deliberation on [whether to bring him back]. But now that it’s set, we can all rest,” Stewart said regarding Lautner, whose character becomes a towering werewolf in “New Moon,” and initially raised questions over whether the young star would be bulky enough to play the part again.
Since it was officially announced that Lautner would reprise his role as Jacob Black, the young actor started training in the gym to bulky up for the role. “He’s really buff!” Stewart exclaimed of Lautner, “He definitely is. It took him a lot of time.” Lautner said he’s put on around 30 pounds since starting his training regimen and he’s not done yet.
In other “Twilight” related rumors, actress Dakota Fanning may be joining the cast as one of the Italian vampires, according to an unidentified source. Apparently, the 14-year-old actress is considered for the role of “Jane,” who is described as a petite blonde with a “Botticelli angel-like face…[and] crimson irises.”
“New Moon” is set for release Nov. 20, 2009.
