"In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death..."

While auditions closed on Friday, Radar has the details of what the director is looking for in three new roles.

First: Riley sounds like he'll be another hottie in the Twilight Saga.

"He is a handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria. A natural born leader, Riley plays an integral role in Victoria's attempt to murder Bella Swan. As a feral "newborn" vampire, Riley only has one weakness -- Victoria."

Second, Seth Clearwater sounds like a perfect match to his character in the book.

"He is a Quileute Indian and the youngest member of the La Push wolf pack. He is a tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin, the son of Harry and Sue Clearwater and the younger brother of Leah. Seth idolizes Jacob - and is always eager to please."

Both Seth and Leah must be Native American Indian or First Nations actors ONLY for this role - the casting company asked that any eager Twilight hopefully please respect this request when they sent in their application.

Leah Clearwater was the third casting call sent out and "she is a Quileute Indian and the only female member of the La Push wolf pack. She is tall and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair. She would be considered gorgeous if not for the perpetual scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues. She is the daughter of Harry and Sue Clearwater and the protective older sister of Seth."

We know how the book ends but we can't wait to see who is cast. Who do you think should land the roles? Tell us at, with "Eclipse" in the subject, and will post your favorite star picks!
