MTV's Twilight 80s Edition

Johnny Depp as Jacob Black?For those of us born pre-1990, MTV imagines who might star in Twilight if Twilight was filmed in the days of big hair and 21 Jump Street. Read the article here.

P.S. I was sad, because I told my 20 y.o. cousin that I am going to see Pet Shop Boys next week, and his response was, "WHO?"

Bah.

    But please, Johnny should be Edward. Can you imagine that?! River would make a great Jasper though..

  2. Oh am loving CSLater as Edward... but what about Demi Moore & Rob Lowe they were the hotties of the 80's too :o)

    Charlie Sheen Emilio Estevez and Andrew McCarthy were my own personal favs though x

  3. This made me laugh, though I disagree with most of their choices. Keifer Sutherland is too short to be Emmit!

  4. @ poppy

    Oh if there was a Twilight parody in the 80's, I bet Charlie Sheen would have been Edward :)

  7. Johnny Depp would be an awesome Edward!! *sigh*

    And I agree about Drew Barrymore. I've never thought about it but she really would be great as Jane, imo :)

    And who are all those people in the second pic?? Does anyone know? I only recognize River Phoenix and Kiefer Sutherland, the rest I can't even make out their faces. Who's the Bella chick?

  17. Yep, it sure is sad. Either because we are getting old or they don't know good music if it hits them between their eyes. The days of Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, The Cars, Culture Club, The Cure(they probably think it's some kind of disease. Ah... well

  18. I think that's River Phoenix as Edward, not Christian Slater.

    So, is this the John Hughes version of Twilight??

  19. @ Anon 6:13: He was SO adorable! :0) I can't count how many Teen Beat magazines I had with him in it! I live in Portland and go to Ecola State Park whenever I'm at the beach just to get the Goonies vibe :0) They built the restaurant at the edge of the cliff at the park and that whole place reminds me of the LaPush scenes; another reason I go there, sigh :0))

  21. @ Mol: OMG I live in Europe and my aunt would mail me Teen Beat from US every month! Also, my brother used to have all those exercise gadgets that Brand had LOL
    And I can't believe you live there! You're right - it does have a La Push vibe.. What a treat..

  22. @ Anon 7:58: Lol that's awesome! Jeez is Teen Beat even around anymore?? I try to avoid those mags now. I feel pretty stupid looking at them at my age :0) My cousin had one of those sit up bars where you hang upside down too!! Hilarious. Good lord what time is it there?? Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @ Mol: Yeah, I never read those mags now, although a while ago I got drunk with my friends and we bought a few just to take those lame quizzes :)
    I don't know if Teen Beat is still around, I wish I saved some copies - it would make a fun read now! It's 2:40am here, no problem though - I get my work done at night mostly.

  24. Drew Barrymore was a child in the 80s. Think "ET" and "Firestarter". She was 4 or 5 years old. I get the impression that Jane was around 13 or 14 when she was turned.

  25. I always think that Winona Ryder would have made a great Bella. I don't know if she was more of an 80's or 90's star, but I think she would have been great.

  26. Molly Ringwall would have been Bella (put a wig on her) she was the most popular of the 80's and her co star in Sixteen Candles (Jake), would have been Edward. Winnona Ryder would have been Alice. Benjamin Brat would have been Jacob. Andrew McCarthy would have been Jasper. Rob Lowe, Emmett; Elizabeth Shue, Rosalie; Demi moore would be Angela; Michael C. Hall, Mike Welch

  27. This is so funny because my twisted brain went to this place a couple of weeks ago thinking "wow, if this movie had been popular when I was a teenager who would be in it?"

    I have already likened Kristen Stewart to Winona Ryder--both emerged kinda gawky (panic room and lucas) but have gone on to be natural beauties.

    and I was thinking Andrew McCarthy for RPatz's self-described tortured version of Edward--nobody did "tortured" in the 80s like Andrew did in "Pretty in Pink"

    still..Johnny Depp , Rob Lowe (looking FAB at the Emmys btw), or Matt Dillon could have easily pulled off a great version of Edward.

    wow will you do a 90s version please with
    Luke Perry or Jason Priestly as Edward??? lol
