Vanessa Hudgens Auditioned for Leah -- Possibly teaming with Nikki Reed on-screen once again

When the New Moon casting call lists were revealed, it was hard not to notice that 'Leah Clearwater' was missing from the list of open roles. Well, MTV reports that Vanessa Hudgens has indeed auditioned for the role of Leah Clearwater.
With all the "New Moon" casting rumors that have been floating around since "Twilight" hit theaters, we were especially wondering who would play werewolf Leah Clearwater, Jacob Black's feisty and heartbroken frienemy.

Well, one of the rumored actresses in the running — "High School Musical" starlet Vanessa Hudgens — has apparently taken the next step and auditioned for the role, according to "Twilight" actress Ashley Greene.

We ran into Alice herself at a Golden Globes afterparty, and she told us she'd be happy to co-star with Hudgens. "I think she'd be great," Greene enthused.
Read the rest of the Vanessa article over at MTV. I guess we shall wait and see. Perhaps it was more than a coincidence that she and Taylor were seen together at the Access Hollywood "Stuff You Must" Golden Globes swag bash.

If Vanessa does win the role of Leah Clearwater, it won't be the first time she's worked with members of the Twilight cast. She starred in Thirteen alongside Nikki Reed in 2003. Click on the photo to the right to enlarge picture of Vanessa with Evan Rachel Wood.

  1. NO NO NO!! Vanessa and Brenda CANNOT play Leah Clearwater! First off, she is too happy and she would not look right 'trying' to be mean. Second I DONT want to think of and of the High School Musical Songs or "YAY ME!" when I watch New Moon. They would ruin the whole thing! Summit Entertainment should not use any Disney characters. They should pick someone new, and someone who could actually FIT the Leah Clearwater role! Please Summit as a fan I'm asking you guys to not pick them, Please do not ruin the Twilight Saga. I do not think Stephenie Meyer herself would be to happy if she saw that Twilight is looseing fans. Just please do not use either of them pick someone NEW.

  8. I really don't think they should put Vannessa Ann Hudgens in New Moon, or especially have her play Leah Clearwater. She's an okay actress, but I don't think anyone in their right mind (or even those not in their right mind) would want to connect a movie as awesome and serious as New Moon to bouncy, annoying HSM.

    ReplyDelete
  9. NO!!! NO!!! NO!!! Vannessa is way to girly for the part leah! she is to happy to like other people have said it reminds ALL of us of HSM and we don't want that while watching an amazing movie like New Moon! NO VANNESSA!!!!!

  21. Oh wow i would love her to be in eclipse, breaking dawn 1, and breaking dawn 2. The only problem is she doesn't look like booboo stewart but thats okay... well she doesnt look like graham greene either but whatever!

  22. People, puh- lese, just cause u don't like her doesn't mean they not going put her for the part! They r going be judging her by her acting skills not of who likes her or doesn't like her! And yes she is girly but she an actor and tht's her job is 2 act duh! And just because she a Disney channel star doesn't mean she can't go out for something else tht out of her BOX! So don't be so rude just because u don't like her, don't put a person down, and I think she look totally like Leah! So Vanessa u go gurrl!cause unlike some people I'm rooting for u:)

  23. I agree with the person above...i don't particularly LOVE her but in many ways she is a good actor. I think she would be a good leah...it wouldn't ruin the films and everyone would still go and watch it because its a good film and rob and taylor ar hot...so stop moaning!

  24. Grow up. She's an actress. SHE can play the part. Your stereotypically relating her to the other roles that dont matter at all to this one. Frickin' babies. I swear, THIS is why twihards have a bad rep, your all whiney, emo, teenyboppers.

  25. Don't get me wrong I love Kristen, but if Kristen Steward, who is the clumsiest actress I've ever known, could play one of the main parts in the movie so can VANESSA HUDGENS. And for the most part ppl r right to see Vanessa Hudgens as "too sweet" because that's the only part she has ever played in a movie, but yet again isn't this y we call it ACTING?!?! I think she's a great actress and she would do just fine in the Leah Clearwater part.

    Answer: Well I think the racism era already past if u haven't noticed, and just to educate u a little neither Edward, Laurent, Victoria nor Jasper are Native Americans sweetheart. So get ur shit straight.

    Answer: I really wonder what Vanessa did to you, but about the “porno star” part… EVERYBODY has sex but fortunately not everybody’s lives r published in the news, so I doubt that if u r 18+ u can’t say that u have done something sexual w/ ur bf… well of course unless ur a nun…

  26. GOT!!!!
    Look that is Leah Clearwater not Emily
    obviously that we need someone strong
    not a disney's princess for that role....
    I don't hate Vanessa is just she look so thin and say that Leah have more body not the body of a lollypop she isn't and won't be Leah Clearwater!!!!!!

  29. Vanessa Hudgens Might be alright for the part of leah but theres just something about her that is too happy and energetic and leah has nothing of that. She is supposed to be more mean, and keep to herselve all the time to hide her pain. But I think she MIGHT be able to do it...! If she plays the part right, then im happy.. :D

  31. nooo way. they should actually pick a native american girl. she looks white, not native.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ummm.....she should sooo not play the part. She does not fit the role at all. When I was reading the books, I would never have pictured her in my mind, NEVER! I love these movies, but this will totally ruin them for me. And if you like her, sorry, but she is just a skank whore looking for more lime light to ruin. Uggg HSM

  33. Hey Vanessa Hudgens, don't listen to them, you're a great actress, and I think you'll do great...but I don't think the "twilight" series is a good enough place for you. You are always a very beautiful and pretty girl, and you are very nice as the girl you play in HSM. But I wish you goodluck in the auditions!

  34. nooooo i dont want vanessa to be in it and anybody who says we are babies and we are steryotipping is cuase they dont understand cuase 4 ppl who read the book the is a more sentemental connection to the movie we want somebody who fits the description in da book leah has to look strong and bold vanessa looks too girlie and she would really ruin the illusion cuase shes been in dum movies like hms and echoo brands noooooo we need a new person somebody who fits the part i refuse to watch the movie if they put her and twilight will lose alot of fans seriously!!!!!!! (sad) please dont

  35. I completely disagree. She should get a chance to try it. She's a human too, and she has her place in the world. And that is not for your people to judge. She is in control, not you. If you were in her place, you would not want to be judged like this. If you don't have anything kind or something that God would want you to say, don't say it.

  36. I'm with her, or he. That person is right, you guys are being really rude to her, she is really excited about hopefully doing this part, and you guys aren't even giving her a chance. She has not been in any dumb movies, it doesn't matter what you people think, if she had tons of fun with it, then AWESOME! Other people like her movies, and obviously it is not you guys. If you're one of those people who keep putting Vanessa down, then you are considered a bully. It doesn't matter what you think, it's just an opinion. She is a kind and good girl, so LEAVE HER ALONE! JEEZE!

  37. whow you guys are mean to Vanessa Hudgens, except for the other girls who are actually nice to her. You wouldn't like to be treated like trash, so why are you doing it to Vanessa? You guys are very mean.

  38. Vanessa will be perfect. Since she is close to native american. I've always wanted her to play on a thriller movie. She'll be a drop dead gorgeous wolf girl.

  40. yeesh people these days. they just cannot get a grip on their hormones can they? all obsessed over vampires and werewolves and everything. Nessa Hudgens can do what she likes. You people have issues. Always have something to argue about. For cryin' outloud. Gosh if someone reads this and they want to be a celebrity, they will be quite deflated cuz of what u guys r saying. they'll think you'll do the exact same thing to themselves. So can u guys just lay off of her? Please? Think about what Jesus would do...would you be writing the same stuff you're writing now? He's always a silent listener so watch your mouth...and your fingers that type on this.
