Belting It Out For Billy!

Dec 15th, 2008 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News, Site News

We know that many of the actors in Twilight have gotten a lot of attention lately for their roles in the movie, and rightly so. But one of the stand-out performances that we here at TST have really loved is that of Billy Burke. Billy plays Charlie in the film and we really think that he deserves some love for bringing some comic relief, as well as a lot of heart, to the role.

Recently in an interview, Billy Burke was asked what he would like to say to his fans. This was his reply:

Yes. Where are you?”

Well, we want you all to make yourselves known!

To show some recognition to this great actor, we are creating a new campaign called “Belting in Out for Billy Burke!” Since Billy was once in a band, we want to put together a video of the fans singing about all of the reasons they love him.

Here is what we are looking for:

-Create a video of you singing a few lines about why you love Billy

-Be creative, use any type of music you want; pop, rap, opera, whatever


-Keep the video to 15 seconds or less

-Keep it clean and please be respectful

-Please limit to one entry

Please upload your videos to YouTube and send the link to by December 31. We will then put all of your entries together and send it along to Billy πŸ™‚

Thanks for participating and we really look forward to seeing all of your videos!

  4. Lindseyyy says:

    Billy was sooo great as Charlie!! I seriouslyy felt like he was my dad the entire time,i know that sounds weird! but thats exactly how my dad is when it comes to boys- the gun scene and everything πŸ™‚
    he was one of my super favorites! but i cant make videos πŸ™ is there anyy other way we can do something other than vids?

  5. Ivania says:

    Billy acted great as Charlie he really acts good, and i would like to see him in the rest of the movies!!!!!!
    Go Billy!!!!!

  6. Renee says:

    His performance was by far one of the best of all the actors in the film. KUDOS! Can’t wait to see more. I also have to add that he’s a HOTTIE!

  7. Rhino. says:

    AAAAWWW!!! I love him!! He was definitely the best actor in the entire movie. He actually brought the character to life. I didn’t picture Charlie the way he played him, but I was willing to love it anyways, because his performance was pure GENIUS!! thank you Billy Burke!!!!

  8. Laura says:

    BILLY BURKE: You were a pivotal character in the movie.

    I love you and your interpretation of Charlie!!!

  9. My husband and I and our daughter enjoyed Twilight all the more for Billy Burke’s performance. His interpretation of Charlie was brilliant. Timing was excellent. My husband’s and my favorite scene was when Charlie meets Edward. Too funny. Well done. Great work. CH cast him brilliantly.

  10. Andrea says:

    Billy is an amazing Charlie!! I hope he knows we all love him…but, seriously…I can’t sing. But I still want to make a video… can we just make a video of us being like “Billy you’re awesome!” ? That would probably get more people to do it. Singing isn’t everyone’s thing.

  11. SamanthaCullen says:


    iLOVEE him.

    i so will be doinqq this


  12. Stacy says:

    I hope they show more Billy and the humans. Why are the vampires the only ones on the magazines and the signing events. I want to see the humans. The interest in the story is the pain Bella feels to leave her human life over being with edward. Can they add more humans in the meetings. STICK TO THE BOOK!

  13. Amamda says:

    I know they leave the humans out of everything! Their acting was the best in Twilight. Props!

  14. TwiMom Laura says:

    Billy Burke was, I feel, the best actor in the entire movie!! He was very believable as Charlie and was spot on on the relationship between Charlie and Bella. He did a superb job! I am looking forward to his performance in New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. He is also pretty darn easy on the eyes!!….!!!!.

  15. heapor says:

    I would love to give Billy Burke all the fan love he deserves but, I don’t do videos. There is a reason actors and musicians get paid so well. Not only do they have to have talent but, the confidence required as well. I have neither. Billy performed a marvelously as Charlie and deserves all the credit we can muster. Thank you Billy!!!

  16. ecbitme says:

    i thought he was totally hot. of course all of the teen girls i took to see the movie thought i was crazy. sorry billy, you’re old like me =) if our age is old, that is. the video is definitely out. technologically challenged. can’t we just post these and send them to him?

  17. Jazmin says:

    I cannot sing well, but just for him i will sing!!!

  18. Erin(: says:

    AWW! BILLY WE ARE HERE! Just get to know us and love us ,too! BILLY=Charlie like you’ve never amagined!

  19. Erin(: says:

    Don’t worry Billy….I’ll SING FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!

  20. Kelli says:

    i love billy as charlie! he’s awesome! he’s my favorite character!!!!

  21. Jazmin says:

    Billy Burke you ROCK!!!! He played Charlie better then anyone else could have! I absolutley loved it! He should know that we Twilighters LOVE HIM!!!!

  22. Marianne says:

    I thought his casting for the role of Charlie was fabulous and one that actually fit well with my reading impressions of the character. I’m not a singer, so I’ll be passing on the video. But his role as Charlie was great and I look forward to seeing more of him in the other stories in the series.

  23. Ivania says:

    Billy Burke acted so great!!!! Thank you Billy for acting AMAZING in my favorite MOVIE!!!!!

  24. Seadanes says:

    Bill was fantastic. Sorry he’s not getting all the love that the young ones do.

  25. Jasmine says:

    You rock Billy! Keep up the good work!!1 You were awesome as Bella’s dad!!!!!

    Jazz (Team Cullen!)

  26. esther g says:

    I loved Billy Burke — I really liked Charlie in the book but Billy was INCREDIBLE! His delivery was awesome, he is so good looking as well. YEAH BILLY… sorry I am not good on camera but I still wanted him to know how much I enjoyed his performance.

  27. Allie says:

    Billy was amazing as Charlie I don’t think they could have found someone better because after reading twilight and the part of midnight sun he expresses the feelings that Charlie is suppose to portray amazingly! Billy definitely needs to feel the love because he needs to continue doing his part and keeping it up because the movies wouldn’t be the same with out him!

  28. jaspermom says:

    Very few men can wear a stache and make it look sexy. When I saw Billy without it, he left me torn between ‘hotter with or hotter without the stache’. Billy, you are HOT both ways! And you portrayed Bella’s dad so convincingly. Thanks for making dads in lumberjack shirts with facial hair sexy in the movie! Can’t wait for your part in the rest of the saga.

  29. Snowball Sniper says:

    I loved the character of Charlie in the book and I loved Billy Burkes “Charlie” in the movie.
    He was awesome. Can’t wait to see him in the rest of the movies. ESPECIALLY IN THE LAST ONE!!!
    Here’s hoping to see you in “Breaking Dawn”!!!!!!

  30. Shayla.M says:

    Billy is the perfect Charlie! My favorite adult human for sure!!
    I really hope he gets to be in all of them! xOxOx

  31. […] to swing by Twilight Series Theories if you want to help out on their Belting it Out for Billy project. Billy Burke needs some Twilight […]

  32. Judy says:

    I was amazed at the great work Billy did in Twilight. His charter was perfect being Bella’s dad. In the book, he was what I saw in my head as I read it..So Billy you are the man….and I can’t wait to see you in all the other movies of Twiligh Series..Thank You for your hard work…great job

  33. jayne says:

    i love billy!!! unfortunately there is NO ONE on this earth who wants to hear me sing as i make the mermaids from harry potter (above ground) sound like celine dion, so i’m leaving my praises here.

  34. Robin says:

    Billy you were fantastic as Charlie in Twilight!! Please don’t think you are not being noticed or appreciated, and I hope you are in all the movies. I would not want to impose my singing on you…so just take my word for it when I say ‘Thank you for doing a great job”!

  35. Billy – Loved your portrayal of Charlie – I especially loved the scene where you were about to meet Edward and you were
    cleaning your gun.”Let him in -(click) -Perfect Dad….
    We need you in the next 3 movies !!! Wendy

  37. Hayley says:

    I love Billy as Charlie! He was my favorite character in the movie when it came to making me laugh! He was the perfect dad! It is a necessity to have him in the next 3 movies!!!

  38. jenb says:

    I don’t have a video camera or any singing talent so I’m just gonna put a message here for him, & maybe he’ll get it.

    I LOVED Billy as Charlie! He was awesome and so fun & had some of the best lines in the whole movie! I really hope he gets to reprise the role in the sequels.

    I love you Billy! Thanks for bringing Charlie to life & i look forward to seeing you in New Moon.

  39. Daisy says:

    Awww that’s so great!!! I think it’s really unfair he hasn’t gotten any of our Twilight love, considering how great he was at being Charlie! I really loved him in Twilight and I hope he’ll be in the next ones as well!!
    Unfortunately I don’t have a camea and I can’t sing or write rhymes πŸ™ Couldn’t you please add a scrapbook or something with why we love him ??

  40. Susan M says:

    Billy did a great job with Charlie! I liked the character before, but Billy really brought him to life. Loved the bit with the shotgun, then the halo. Too funny! And then when Bella left, the pain was palpable.

    Plus, as a 45 year old fan of the books and movie, it’s great there are a few men in this movie I don’t feel quite so weird lusting after. If I had a video camera I might sing his praises. As it is, I’ve just been taking advantage of Netflix to see as much of his past works as I can find there.

  41. Robyn A says:

    I think you brought a critical element to the character-humor of course, and the situation of a dad who has acquired a teenage daughter ..the insecurity, etc. You did a great job and I look forward to seeing your work in the future!

  42. Shteff! says:

    aw bless :P. I can’t sing sadly so meh

  43. AP says:

    Love you Billy! You’re a kick-butt actor and were SPOT ON portraying Charlie!

    Where are we? We -are- around, supporting you!

  44. Linsey says:

    OME!!!! First let me say, IT IS ABOUT TIME YOU GUYS ARE BACK UP AND RUNNING…I MISSED YOU!!!! Second, I love Billy and he is super hot in person! Hubba Hubba!

  45. Ivania says:

    Thank you Billy for acting in my FAVORITE MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!

  46. CullenCrazy17 says:

    well i dont think i will be able to make one by then but still i just thought i would say that you, Billy, did an amazing job as charlie in twilight so congrats and cant wait for the next one

    PS do you, people at TST, this you could post the video to charlie here on this website so all of us other fans could see it?? that would b cool! bye

  47. nikita says:

    I cannot think of anyone that could have played Bella’s father better…
    Billy did a super job and I hope he relizes that he is one of the hotest
    actors that the Twilight Cast has……..I loved you billy !!!

  48. Laura says:

    Billy was one of my favorite actors in the movie. He was Charlie!

  49. Jolene says:

    I thought Billy was awesome as Bella’s dad and he truly played the role like I pictured him in the book. I hope he continues to take on the role because it would not be the same without him.

  50. Jessica S. says:

    This is a great idea I think billy did an awesome job. really funny
