Producer Summit Entertainment hasn't announced what roles the eight actors -- Olga Fonda, Janelle Froehlich, Masami Kosaka, Sebastiao Lemos, Amadou Ly, Ty Olsson, Wendell Pierce and Carolina Virguez -- will play (they're all supporting parts). "Breaking Dawn" is scheduled to start filming next month in Louisiana and Vancouver.

The biggest name among the new cast members is Pierce, who stars in HBO's "Treme" and previously was a star of "The Wire." Olsson had a recurring part on "Battlestar Galactica" as Capt. Aaron Kelly and was a regular on ABC's "Defying Gravity."
