It's bloody typical, you know! The producers of the inexplicably popular Twilight movies finally make a vampire out of a guy I like to look at and they kill him off.
Australian-born Xavier Samuel reportedly beat out both
Channing Tatum and Tom Felton (Hmmm. Draco Malfoy as a Vampire)
for the part of the leader of the army of baby vampires in Twilight: Eclipse,
which I saw on Monday when our office was closed, evidently in honor of
Venezuela's Independence Day.
There's not much of him in the movie, though. Mostly it's Edward and Bella
pausing awkwardly as they say their lines, but Xavier does look good when
he does show up. He has a great smile, which never shows up in Eclipse, but
at least he avoids previous experiences with really bad hair.
And he looks good dripping wet, which happens twice, though I don't know why
that should appeal to me the way it does. And it turns out that he was also
in a film about homosexuality and Australian surfers.
He probably got wet in that one, too.
