Xavier Samuel Joins ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’

The Risky Biz Blog has revealed that Australian actor Xavier Samuel has landed the first new role in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third in the franchise that will open in theaters June 30, 2010. The second film, The Twilight Saga's New Moon, will open in theaters November 20th, 2009.

Summit Entertainment has hired Samuel to play the role of a "newborn vampire" named Riley, a good-looking college student who joins the plot of villain Victoria to murder protagonist Bella (Kristen Stewart). Riley is corrupted by Victoria, for whom he has an inexplicable weakness.

The movie's larger plot centers on a choice Bella must make between the werewolf Jacob (Taylor Lautner) and the vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson).

Production on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is scheduled to start on August 17.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse was released June 30th, 2010.
