So it’s official, Twi-stalkers. Nine year old Mackenzie Foy has been cast for the role of Renesmee in the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. (***Spoiler Alert! If you are one of the 7 people left who have not yet read Breaking Dawn, then you may want to stop reading now!!**)
Perhaps the most anticipated cast member to be chosen since her characters parents, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and June’s mega-mougar of the month, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), Mackenzie Foy has been creating a lot of buzz already throughout Hollywood as rumors began flying that she was a potential candidate for the role of Renesmee Cullen. Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer confirmed the studios choice on Facebook Wednesday night.
“Very excited about our new Renesmee, Mackenzie Foy,” Meyer wrote. “She’s an amazing young actress and I’m excited to work with her.”
So how will they pull it off? With a baby who ages rapidly through the book, it may be tricky. According to recent reports, Bill Condon, the director for the last two installments of the Twilight Saga, is expected to use the same special effects that were used to de-age Brad Pitt’s character in the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
It has also been reported that the studio is considering using younger actresses for the earlier parts of the role.
Recently the studios announced that they had cast Lost’s Maggie Grace to play the role of Irina from the Denali clan, joining MyAnna Buring (as Tanya) Casey LaBow (as Kate), Mia Maestro (as Carmen) and Christian Camargo (as Eleazar).
So it sounds like the studios have been busy, which is great because shooting for the first half of the final installment starts next month in Louisiana.
You can expect to see all of the new additions, along with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner and the rest of the returning cast members November 18, 2001 and November 16, 2012 for the last two movies in the series.
So how do our Celebstalkers feel about the new additions? Are you excited about the choices they have made? Do you plan to see the last two movies in the Twilight Saga?
So what would Brad do if he was in charge? He says he would have considered having the people responsible for the BP oil spill executed if he was in power and while he usually opposes capital punishment, he would make an exception if he could.
FOX News quoted Brad while he was filming his part for Spike Lee’s new documentary If God is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise, which is being made to show the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina as it comes to it’s fifth anniversary.
When asked about his comment, Brad Pitt, who has been pretty active in helping rebuild parts of New Orleans, said “I was never for the death penalty before-I am willing to look at it again.”
If you are interested in seeing Brad in Spike Lee’s documentary, you can watch it on HBO Tuesday night.
So, Celebstalker’s, what do you think about Brad’s comments?

Fans of the intelligent and frighteningly realistic socio-political zombie novel “World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie Wars” by Max Brooks will be psyched to learn that the popular novel is finally being made into a feature film! Talk of the World War Z movie has been going on for several years now, with some fans beginning to believe that it would never get made.
In 2007 word came out that Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B was in a bidding war with another company to gain rights to the film. But nothing more was officially said.
But Zombie movie lovers everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief because Max Brooks has now at last confirmed to MTV that the film is on and that none other than mega-star Brad Pitt is attached to it! Although Brad Pitt is obviously attached through his production company, rumors are already swirling that he will also star in the film. Could we be so lucky?
The film will be directed by Marc Forester and may be set to release in the summer of 2012. It’s about damn time!
We’ll keep you posted as more news surfaces!
