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

Rules:

-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 kallieross@twilightseriestheories.com by December 31. We will then put all of your entries together and send it along to Billy :)

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

    Uh, Billy Burke STOLE the show! Seriously, I personally love Robert Pattinson in ways that may be illegal, but Billy was the dude who ended up stealing my heart in the movie. EVERY scene he was in were the best acted scenes hands down, because him and Kristen had a great father/daughter dynamic going on. CHARLIE AND THE STACHE FOR THE WIN!

  5. Stefanie says:

    I thought Billy was great as Charlie. I especially loved the scene where he’s cleaning his gun and meets Edward officially. That scene reminded me of my own daddy. And just so Billy knows a lady I work with has him on her desktop. We love you Billy!!

  6. Linda says:

    Oh of course, Billy deserves a lot of love. He is a great actor and did an awesome job as Charlie. He was truly a great comic relief.

    Billy as Charlie Swan was fantastic! He brought so much unexpected humour to the role of Charlie! Loved him, and I couldn’t imagine anyone else doing anything better!!!

  10. Victoria says:

  11. Kara says:

    I think he was the best actor in the entire movie!

  12. Ana says:

  13. Amber says:

    Ahaha. I totally felt like a rockstar, doing that. xD I hope he liiiiikes it!

  14. Daina says:

    I just got finished watching Twilight for the third time. Billy is awesome as Charlie. I could not imagine anyone else doing it like he does. Love the website. You could always sing a song to I love rock and roll…..change the lyrics.

    Just saw the film today (what can I say? I live in the UK – we’re slow over here!) but OMG!!! Billy was brilliant as Charlie! Just brilliant! He brought a lot of humour while being a dad! Can you be my dad (oh no! Now I sound like a stalker!)?

    I was so excited when I read this. I sat down and wrote a little rap – it came out pretty good, but I couldn’t find the time to record myself singing it. Finally, when I got the time, I came down with laryngitis and couldn’t even speak! Now I feel terrible about it – if there is any way to send it to him, I would love to know how! At least I got my voice back today after a week of being squeaky :)

    Hey, I just wanted to say I love your podcast and that I had a tagline for new moon. “It is better to lose a lover than to love a loser.” I hope you enjoy that cassie.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
