Ozzie actor Xavier Samuel will be joining the cast of 'Eclipse', the third in the vampiristic 'Twilight' franchise. Samuel will play 'newborn vampire' Riley, a good-looking college student who joins the plot of villain Victoria to murder protagonist Bella (Kristen Stewart), says Variety.
"The character 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).
"Eclipse", directed by David Slade, starts shooting next month in Vancouver.
