‘Twilight’ Actor Edi Gathegi Talks ‘New Moon’ Love InterestJan 19th, 2009 | By Krystal | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
MTV has an interview with Edi Gathegi about his upcoming role in New Moon!
Commenting on the directorial musical chairs, Gathegi said he has yet to meet the new man in charge of the series, Chris Weitz. “Catherine [Hardwicke] was a doll. I loved that woman. I think she made the decisions she made for her reasons,” he said. “Now I’m looking forward to the future. I’m looking forward to working with Chris. I think he’s very capable. He’s got that experience with huge pictures, with ‘The Golden Compass.’ He’s going to make it beautiful. I loved ‘American Pie,’ so his track record is very promising for me. And I heard he’s great with actors. I think ‘New Moon’ is going to be really good. … He’s up to his neck in things to do, so he’s not concerned with [meeting with the returning actors yet]. We’ll meet on set.”
As for the moment, Gathegi said only half-jokingly, he’s just trying to get a script to read. “I’m going to fire someone, because Robert [Pattinson] read it. He’s like a supporting role in the freakin’ film!” the actor smiled, threatening to call Mr. Pattinson on his cell phone. “Nah, he’s in London now. I don’t want to make any long-distance calls. I’m cheap.”
