With the lines between the Harry Potter and Twilight franchises beginning to blur as it is, this most recent move confuses things even more for the uninitiated. “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” star Tom Felton (otherwise known as Draco Malfoy) has Twilight fans gushing at the moment – for him to star in the 2010 follow up Twilight Eclipse.
According to the site, Twilight fans are clamouring for Felton to play Victoria’s lackey Riley in next years follow up to The Twilight Saga: New Moon. The 2010 movie (known imaginatively as The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) would see Felton join teen heartthrob Robert Pattinson on screen for the third time during his career, as the pair both had supporting roles in two previous HP installments.
“Ill be ready when they want me! Really, I’m only joking. Im not really sure at this point; but you will be the first to know if I find out anything!” Tom told his fansite, Feltbeats.com. He reiterated the sentiment on his Twitter, saying, “i keep getting asked if im being cast as Riley in Twilight! Ill let you all know if so!!!”
So what do the Twilighters of the world think? Would Felton be a good choice for Riley? Or would you prefer someone along the lines of scriptwriter Melissa Rosenberg’s suggestion of Channing Tatum?
