'New Moon' rises over Wolf Pack
Native American actors cast for 'Twilight' sequel
A group of Native American actors has been cast as the film's Wolf Pack, according to a note on series author Stephanie Meyer's Web site. Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Tyson Houseman will play "New Moon's" tribe of teen werewolves, led by Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner).
That's bad news for "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" star Vanessa Hudgens, who had hoped to snag the Wolf Pack role of Leah Clearwater.
"New Moon" will rise over theaters on Nov. 20. The story follows human teen Bella ( Kristen Stewart), who is torn between attractions to Black and sparkly vampire Edward ( Robert Pattinson).
