BOO BOO Stewart + Julia Jones: Meet Seth & Leah Clearwater

UPDATE: According to the Twilight Examiner Summit has confirmed Julia Jones as Leah

Boo Boo as Seth?
Julia Jones as Leah?

Access Hollywood reports:
New Cast Members
Xavier Samuel as Riley
Catalina Sandino Moreno as Maria
Jack Huston as Royce King
Julia Jones as Leah Clearwater
BooBoo Stewart as Seth Clearwater
Jodelle Ferland as Bree
And I thought these were just internet rumors! Entertainment Tonight cites the same casting update, and Summit has confirmed this.

We shall see if there is any truth to this very soon, I'm guessing. :-)

P.s. Oooh, I like the look of Boo Boo (random!) - very "young Jacob" like - and think Julia is a great fit for Sam's ex! - Lorabell

P.p.s. My sincere apologies to the reader who told me weeks ago that Julia and Boo Boo were slated for these roles! You were right! We just wanted to wait for confirmation...-- TCA

  1. BooBoo is too too cute cute! Julia is so pretty - let the Twicast grope-a-thon/coitus-a-thon begin!

    I do hope these cast additions are true, I'm wondering who they report hooking up with Julia. Or heaven forbid maybe Jodelle and BooBoo will be spotted trolling around the Couve getting froyo.

  2. I like the look of both of them. I totally changed my mind about vanessa hudgeons...I don't want her to be Leah now because this Julia Jones looks gorgeous and tough like Leah should be! And "Boo Boo" has that the young look of Seth that I pictured.

  3. I was just about to ask if anyone else had heard this. I saw it on ET's website a few minutes ago. I haven't heard of either one of them.

    Boo Boo (despite that name) might be a good Seth. Bella describes Seth as a "younger Jacob". Boo Boo seems to be a younger Taylor Lautner. He sings, acts, dances and is a martial artist. I'll have to read up on Julia Jones.

  4. Vanessa would be a better Leah. She's prettier than Julia. Leah is described s quite beautiful in the books. I actually picture Vanessa's face now when I read them.

  5. Boo Boo? seriously that is his name? But he is adorable. I think he definatly works as Seth.

    Julia is much prettier than Vanessa. Vanessa looks to sweet and younger. Leah seems older and kinda angry. Julia looks like she fits the part well.

  6. Anon, I know Leah is described as beautiful, and that's what Julia is!

    We DON'T need Disney people invading Eclipse.

    We just don't.

    Julia is prettier than Vanessa, btw.

  7. O I remember her from Black Cloud (a wonderful Native American film that features my favorite 2nd favorite Native actor Eddie Spears.
    She'll be great!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Some of "us" wouldn't mind Vanessa. You need not speak for all of "We".

    You have your opinion, and I have mine. So you know what you can do with your snarky little "btw". ;)

    Geez, some peoples kids.

    ReplyDelete
  9. i love them both!! and i assume Boo Boo will be getting a hair cut... seriously. does he want to be a shaggy wolf? hehe

    ReplyDelete
  10. He is perfect for Seth. Exactly how I imagined him to be. What the hell were his parents smoking when they named him Boo Boo though.

    ReplyDelete
  11. He's cute. I pictured Seth a little less asian looking myself, but "booboo" is cute.

    ReplyDelete
  12. awww Boo Boo is too cute! and Julia is STUNNING! and they do look alike which is good too!

    ReplyDelete
  13. BooBoo looks more like Vanessa.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Uhm, Julia Jones is indeed beautiful but isn't she a tad bit old for the role?
    And I really can't say much about Vanessa Hudgens because I never watched anything she was on and refuse to pay money to see Bandslam.
    So I can't judge if she is fitting for Leah or not, but the girl is also very pretty and when I read the books, that's how I picture Leah. Don't hate!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Boo Boo looks like a sweet kid. I think he'd be awesome as Seth.
    I've never been sure of Vanessa Hudgens for Leah, and seeing Julia now, I think she'd be a far better fit, even if she does seem a little old for the role. I think the Eclipse people could make her look a little more kid-like quite easily.

  16. Funny thing is she's tweeted about it since Aug 1st :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Dang...i Know! gah. somebody even pointed her Twitter out to me, but i couldn't tell if she was just a faker person or not. doh.

    ReplyDelete
  18. @TwiCrack Addict

    Hahahahaha!! Actually, it's interesting how this casting went without much hype and speculation, unlike New Moon casting.. I guess all the attention was on Comic Con, New Moon trailer and clips and, of course, Robsten :)

    I read her tweets and had a good laugh how her supposed "friend" (Eddie Spears) was all bitchy for her landing the part of Leah.. Some friend.. He even sent angry tweets to David Slade.. What a douche.. If he always acts like that, he won't be getting much work in the industry.. Highly unprofessional!

    ReplyDelete
  19. @ anon 5:57

    yeah, i totally even looked at her Tweets several weeks ago, and i dismissed them...I just wasn't sure if it was a legit Twitter or not. And I saw this tweet, which kind of confused me...not sure if she was RT'ing, or if this is something she said -- it was so forward, that I started to think she was a faker account.

  20. @TwiCrack Addict

    Yeah, I see your point.. I guess a fake wouldn't have all those details so early on.. But who knows?
    Anyway, I was shocked by those bitchy tweets, that certainly doesn't add to credibility..

    ReplyDelete
  21. i dont like him for seth...he looks to little. and wut is going on with his hair?
    i really like their choice for leah though

    ReplyDelete
  22. just so u guys knw.....boo boo is a disney star he was in t-squad, a group that sang alot for disney.....not that its a problem, but I did picture Seth looking more Native. He's has that adorable, cute look though :)
    I just have one ?....How old was Leah supposed to be in the book?....I can't remember.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hmm...? I didn't know BooBoo was a name anyway i can't see him as Seth.
    Julia looks EXACTLY how i pictured Leah.Perfect!
    But i guess i will have to live with BooBoo playing Seth , i just cant see him as Seth.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Btw i like BooBoo baby face , cute , KINDA OF.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @anon 6:08 -- yeah, totally thought the same thing! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think Leah was one year older than Bella in the book-so what like 18-19? Julia doesn't look much older than that and they can fix her up with makeup. And now I think about it, Seth really pops up during Eclipse because he has the transformation during that book...perhaps "Boo Boo" might be too little for him. Or too young looking maybe...

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great casting for these parts. I think Nils Allen Stewart Jr (Boo Boo)is going to be great as Seth. It's nice to finally have a face to the character's especially when your reading the books. For a young actor who was born in 1994, He has a very impressive resume over at IMDB, He's done stunts for movies, is a martial arts champion and has composed music. Impressive! Julia Jones is perfect, Just as I pictured.

    ReplyDelete
  28. is everyone missing the fact that Leah is 19 and Julia is 28?!?!? She is WAY too old.

    ReplyDelete
  29. In my opinion, I am thrilled with who they got to play Seth. Seth is a loving, friendly, goofy, loyal character. I see a playful, yet strong spirit in Seth and I think Booboo has those qualities.

    As for Leah, I am over the moon. They chose an amazing Native talent for the roll. Julia has the qualities needed to play the character. I see leah as shattered, vulnerable, strong, Loving, Loyal and more than a little bitter. I think this roll takes someone with stronger acting chops and I have not seen that in Miss Hudgeons.

    Solid choices and I am even more excited for Eclipse!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Someone actually though Vanessa Hudgens would be good? PLEASE!!! She can stick to taking nudey pictures of herself. Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You know what? Julia looks a lot like Tinsel Korey, which is great casting since Leah and Emily are cousins.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Boo Boo looks ASIAN! Not INDIAN! And I pictured Leah a little more young looking... I wouldnt mind Vannssa Hudgens being Leah..

    ReplyDelete
  33. Julia will fit the role great. remember that even though leah is 19...the wolves are suppose to look a little older than their age.

    FYI to the anon post about Eddie Spears...he has come out and denied owning a twitter account and said he would never be that negative toward anyone. he's a great person and shouldn't be based when something like Twitter is so easy to fake...we've all seen the fake rob and kristen sites.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well I didn't imagine Leah as slutty, but I guess she won't be wearing only a scarf in Eclipse so its all good. And Seth looks chinese not really Indian, damn I was hoping they would get this right as Seth is one of my favorite characters!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Boo boo looks nothing like how i pictured seth! I'm pretty angry right now. He looks too young! (like 9) and too asian. (or at least in that picture) Julia is really close to the Leah i pictured.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Julia should play Sue Clearwater instead.

    ReplyDelete
  37. "Boo Boo"? Gimme a break break.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Boo boo: If anyone is still unconvinced saying he is too asian or what not. You have to check out recent pics,

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNEpIv_1rDc

    Its like he was posing as seth! So perfect!! :]

    And then with leah: Who think shes gng to be walking around with lil clothes in eclipse? I do. Because if the boys are walking half naked, it wouldnt be surprising if leah is wearing like a bikini top or midreff, its hot to be a werewolf and u know how many clothes she has to go through! lol.
    Thats a lil comeback to the "shes slutty" comments if they were any in the blog. The other forums were fully bagging her out. too harsh.

    ReplyDelete
  39. That's a good link happy. Boo boo definitely looks more native than asian in those photos.

    I think Julia is too old toplay Leah.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Happyso, you are so right! I checked out the link and now I can totally see him as Seth!

    And I really wish people would ease up on Julia Jones. She takes some sexy pics and that makes her a slut? Give me a break!

    ReplyDelete
  41. HELLO? Didn't you guys read the book? Leah "transforms" too and they are supposed to look a lot older than what they are...Jacob was 16 and looked 25 remember? So Julia will be quite perfect for Leah.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Very interesting-)) I hope they act well! Love the name BooBoo- reminds me of Yogi Bear:))

    ReplyDelete
  43. NICE. I just checked out the above link and this kid does look like what I pictured Seth. That's a bad posted pic of him, but the other pix are great and he looks Native American, cute face, and he has a HOT body (rocking 6 pack!). He really looks like a younger Jacob. Good choice Summit! Leah is pretty too. I can't wait to see what her wardrobe (or lack of) is going to look like. I hope they have her wearing next to nothing like the guys, that will be awesome. She's a good choice and she looks like she can kick ass and be sexy while doing it :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. i always saw boo boo as seth. he's such a cutie but i had no idea he was native... i thought he was asian. :p

    great choices for both roles. i'm excied to see them in costume.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Nils Allen Stewart Jr is "Boo Boo"'s real name. The link above helps A LOT to make him look Native American, however, he is only a small part Native American. Wonder why Summit changed its requirement for the wolf pack to be 100% Native American with papers? All the other guys, except Taylor, had to show papers to get their parts. My opinion, he looks WAY younger than 15. Hope he doesn't mind cutting that hair. Kiowa Gordon was interviewed right after getting the part and stated he hadn't realized they were going to cut his hair, he was kinda upset. So, I guess Boo Boo needs to brace himself. As for Julia, I think she'll make a great Leah. "She's too old?" Give me a break. Like others said above, the wolves look older than they are - i.e., Jacob being 16 and looking 25. I think they'll both do fine. Now if Rosenberg didn't ruin the script and Slade doesn't ruin the movie be focusing on the "battle" we'll, hopefully, have a pretty good movie. NEW MOON 1ST THOUGH - CAN'T WAIT!!!

  46. aww man im not too keen on either of them :(

    ReplyDelete
  47. Boo Boo did not have to provide papers. This is discrimination! The other native american actors had to prove their heritage to Chris Weitz. He demanded it,despite the fact that they looked native american. http://www.theinsider.com/news/2054198_Get_a_Look_The_Wolf_Pack_in_New_Moon

    ReplyDelete
  48. and this is boo boo's comments regarding his heritage http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070626091349AAKFLxG

    ReplyDelete
  49. HE DID NOT HAVE TO PROVIDE papers cuz he doesnt have any!! And he doesnt look native! SINCE when did asians call themselves native amerian. He has never been to any reservation to use his celebrity to help his native americans out!!! DOES HE EVEN KNOW WHAT Blackfoot is??? THEN he is from Canada? So he is now aboriginal??? The tribes were split along time ago and Blackfeet are now apart of the tribe on the united states. Blackfoot belong to the aboriginal tribe. HOW Many of us have an ancestor with from a distance, YES we all do!! BUT if the other wolf pack members were FORCED TO show PROVE THEIR heritiage with SUMMIT how COME BOO BOO GETS A FREE PASS!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I DID contact the ACLU!! this is racial discrimination against native american actors!! WHY were they DEMANDED that if you want to be NEW MOON THEN prove your HERITAGE???? DId you all notice the press release does not state NATIVE american actor BOO BOO stewart or his tribe?? CUZ HE HAS NO PAPERWORK! HE looks asian. WILL NEED SPRAY TANning. Has played a younger version of HO-Sun Park. IT's cuz he LOOKS NATIVE> SUMMIT forgot they FORCED the other wolf pack that if they want to be in NEW MOON THEN PROVE IT!! BOO BOO DID NOT HAVE TO PROVE HIS LINK to his blackfoot heritiage. WHICh would have to have been through the CANADAIAN governement. HE DOESNT HAVE PAPERS

    ReplyDelete
  51. I AM 100@ for a fact KNOW summit did not request BOO BOO to prove his heritage like the rest of the pack members! They know he doesnt have any that is why the press release DOES NOT READ HIS TRIBE!!!! THINK THIS! IF Chris Weitz was casting Seth in New Moon or even if he was directing Eclipse, IT would have been impossible for Boo Boo Stewart to be cast as Seth Clearwater. IT would not have happened! David Slade made the call. He put SUmmit is a whole lot of trouble with the ACLU. This will be a civil rights issue. http://bit.ly/c1qo6 This link takes you to at least 1 article of the many where CHRIS Weitz states the casting process of the wolfpack!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh shut up, who cares. The kid has the job. Suck it up.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hey sorry but Civil rights is civil rights. Thank goodness you were not around back in the 50's. You would have said who care suck it up. Yeah the kid has the job, but you know what the other pack members had to prove their heritage. But your not Native American so you if you were in that position and someone said,"IF you want this job to be SAM, Paul, Jared, QUIL, THEN you have to SHOW ME papers proving ur NATIVE AMERICAN." that sucked for thoese guys but they had the paperwork. NOW here comes BOO Boo and he has no paperwork. What about the other native american actors who had paper work? Thank GOODNESS MARTIN LUTHER KING didnt just suck it up.

    ReplyDelete
  54. IT IS EASY saying SHUT UP just suck it up ! HOW many times did Martin Luther KING hear that? No one wants to make the elephant. Have you been to a rez? You dont care cuz your not Native and you dont live on a reservation. and if you say are then your lying. CUZ we are all mad on our rez.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hey I agree with what the other person said. But I have this to add. The sad thing is he looks like Justin Chows little brother. I am from the Navajo rez and we are ticked off.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I am working on the set of Eclipse as an extra in the Quilette Village. Hey they will never know who it was sending the message out! WE are mad about who they chose as SETH. We thought it was a joke. Cuz the kid looks Asian. I thought he was chinease. A few of us auditioned for Seth Clearwater and WE are tripping. We had our paper work. I am just wondering why our brothers, Chaske, Tyson, Alex, Bronson, Kiowa, ALL HAD TO PROVE THEIR HERITAGE. WHy this kid who looks asian got the part with no papers? WE looked him up and found out why. HIS MOM IS ASIAN(shes chinease, japanese, korean) his DAD looks russian(SCOTTISH, russian) and whatever blackfoot WAS in his DAD is long washed away by the russian and scottish. DEFINITELY when Boo BOO got it there was no BLACKFOOT in his blood to make any kind of physical charateristic on him look remotely NATIVE AMERICAN.

    PEOPLE! DO NOT SAY HE is native american. YEAH we are blogging this kid on his sites asking HIM DO NOT say you represent us native americans, CUZ we have never SEEN YOU on any REZ. ALL HOLLYWOOD ACTORS use us native americans when they want money in a movie.It makes them more marketable. BUT for us real native americans cuz WE ACTUALLY look native we have to look parts who are looking for native americans. HEY if summit wanted to hire non-natives for the wolf pack. COOL..BUT they should have done that for NEW MOON. NOT change the rules later for 1 kid. THIS GOES OUT TO MY BROTHERS..I STANDING UP.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I am zan extra too. I was hurt by Summit. Just cuz they forced the other wolfpack members to show papers. HEY they demanded the extras be NATIVE AMERICANS ONLY! WE ALL HAVE OUR CARDS. IT just makes it worse. People you all get mad at the other blogger. Cuz you dont want to know what your favorite franchise is up too. IT SUCKS. CUZ I love twilight too. I was excited to be in costume. We took this kid and digitally put him in the wolf pack and he LOOKS SO OUT OF PLACE. Yes he will need spray tanning and hopefully they dont cut his hair CUZ THEN his asian features will stand out more. This should be a civics lesson about the hunger and greed for money and the obession of twilight.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I am in the village scene too. My point of view is yes i have card. BUT you all attack the other blogger cuz you are mad to hear that the obession you have with Stephanie Meyers characters and the fantasy you have to escape from your own life whether it is good or bad is NOW BEING evaded with thoughts of racial discrimination. HEY we didnt discriminate against anyone. IF SUMMIT wanted to use non-natives that was there peragotive. BUT WHEN they demanded the other wolf pack members show papers and then us extra had to prove we were native american. THEN this kid gets a free pass ....NO WAY. WHAT is up? Yeah, I am gonna blog this kids people whoever they are and ask them not to say this kid is native american when he CANT prove it. IT is an insult to us.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Hey those ladies or guys in the box making talk about whatever are so silly. They are little girls who help the world by helping themselves. THEY have no interest in reality. That is why all they do is talk about Twilight. HEY you silly girls I am extra in Eclipse. I have a card. My friends above in the other blog are laughing at your comments. We were reading them in refernce to that other person who blog 20 something messages about racial discrimination. All you care about is invading poor Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's lives. You people make them talk among themselves about crazy you all are. Yes you fans and fame is part of the business, but ROBERT Pattinson IS NOT EDWARD and poor Kristen Stewart is just an actress. What kind of life will you people have when Twilight is over? I know for a fact that some of these actors are LOOKING forward to that. You all hate on the one person speaking their mind and trying to let you all that there is racial discrimination but all you care about is bracelets and pictures of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Who they themselves wish you would give them a day of not obssessing with who found the best update reagarding what. LIFE IF more than that. I am glad my elders taught me that. No wonder you obessess with twilight. you fantasize and wish your lives were like the characters in Stephanies books. WELL then live like them, because all of them would fight for the right thing... There is racial discrimination against native americans. I HAD TO SHOW MY CARD TO BE AN EXTRA YOU SILLY GIRLS... you all have the power to tell Summit, that it was not fair to all of us, but all you care about is talking about seeing twilight books come to life. And AT ALL COSTS.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I was an extra on the set of Eclipse. I will get fired about this, but you know they forced us to SHOW CARDS just to be and extra in a village scene. They want the Quillete Village to look authentic and rea, that is why they casted real native american extras for the village scene. I am just an extra but I had to show a card. What does that say about Hollywood?

    ReplyDelete
  61. okay people cant you just get over it , please ! he's already in the movie just leave it alone and people his real name is Nils something so stop saying " what the hell is that name" blah blah blah who really cares :P but he is pretty cute Lol

    ReplyDelete
  62. boo boo isn't his real name. it is nils allen stewart jr. he works out everyday. and i think he is PERFECT 4 seth. yes he was in the t-squad and is now in tlc. the stewart clan, with his younger sis, fivel and older sis, meagan. i LOVE boo boo. and 4 thoughs who think he looks 2 young. that is an OLD pic of him. see better ones @ www.teenidols4you.com/booboostewart look @ the pics.

    julia jones i think though is not the pefect peson 4 the part, but neither is vanessa hudgens. i feel they couls have done better.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Is he even Native American... That pisses me off! That the CDs job was to find and cast Native American actors. Julia is Native American, but 'Boo Boo' (which by the way is a dumb ass name), is not. So no go on him as Seth, but whatever, its too late. I also think he looks too young.

    ReplyDelete
  64. i think they're both pretty hot... for wolves! :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I write this post as a neutral party... I do not take one side or another. I do direct the questions and information to the actual Native Americans reading and commenting on the posts here, and those claiming to be Native American extras in the movie. Perhaps if you ponder the information and questions I post next, you would give a thoughtful and unbiased as possible answer. On the Blackfeet official website, of whom Mr. Stewart claims 1/6 ancestry, you read the following paragraph:

    "What is an Indian?

    To the federal government, an Indian is a person who is an ENROLLED member of a federally-recognized Indian tribe. The Blackfeet, for example, have about 16,000 enrolled members. But according to the 2000 census, 85,600 claim Blackfeet heritage. So there are about 70,000 people who think of themselves as Blackfeet but would not be recognized as such by the federal government and do not appear on the Tribal rolls. Ironically, there are many people who have a great deal of Indian blood, but not enough from any one tribe to enroll."

    After reading this information, one has to wonder, does not having a registration card make one less of a Native American? Though requiring one person to provide proof of registration and not another is admittedly biased and/or discriminatory, is it not also discrimination to consider a person "not Native American without registration", especially if the person in question were of the heritage mentioned in the last sentence of the paragraph?

    Also, in regards to the occasional comments of others here about physical appearance (specifically, a person "not looking Native American"), one can never judge a person's ancestry based on physical features. There are such things as dominant and recessive traits and genes... my own heritage for example! I come from a family full of blond haired, light eyed Swedes, Danes, and Belgians. Enter one single dark-haired and eyed Spaniard into the mix, and poof! The next two generations, including myself, all have dark hair and eyes.

    Ancestry is a tricky thing, and everyone has their own story. I would like to hear some THOUGHTFUL opinions and information from the readers of this board in response to my own statements.
