  5. fally wally says:

    NNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This did not just happen!! they couldve saved their money for something better!!! Shes now gonna get all stuck up and stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 And no offense to her but she cant play Jane it just doesnt fit right!!! I hate this!! Its a bad idea Summitt now has to pay 1 million even before they start filiming just to have her and more!!!!!!

  6. Jen says:

    I cant say im suprised, I mean the rumours of this have been around for so long, and Dakota said she wanted it to work out. I am still kinda disappointed though. Nothing against her as an actress, but she just isnt Jane to me.

    Also, i agree with fally wally, i think shes probably taken up a big chunk of the budget, for a small part and i think the money could have been saved for something else.

  7. Cedar says:

    NO! NO! NO! she can not play Jane!

  8. Michy says:

    yay! maybe her presence will make the other actors be on their game a bit more. u know, take their roles a little bit more seriously!! i am happy she is on and she very talented for someone her age. when she was like 4 and did I am sam, i cried during the TRAILER!!! come one! then on Man on Fire! Hello, no other young star could have gone toe to toe with Denzel Washighton!!!
    So for all the haters. we are very lucky to have Dakota on board

    I’m excited. I think she’ll do a great job. And seriously guys, how can you say she will get “all stuck up and stuff”? I didnt know you could see the future. Give her a chance to actually PLAY Jane until you trash her. She is a tremendous actress, but I am kinda worried about how much it will cost. Everybody is so judgmental of her already because it doesnt fit “you’re image”. Just calm down first and give the girl a chance to prove everyone wrong.

  11. lucy says:

    i’m actually very excited! i love dakota! i think she’ll be great, she’s an amazing actress. and i absolutely disagree that this is gonna make her “all stuck up” because she’s probably one of the most down-to-earth young actresses of our time. i agree with erica, you can’t be so judgmental when you haven’t even seen it yet. i think she’ll do amazing. she has this presence when she’s acting and to have her play one of the bad guys will be interesting and entertaining to watch. yayyy!!!!

  12. Jamie Lenora says:

    I’m not surprised, but I don’t like it.

  13. Diane says:

    great just great now its going to be considered a stupid dakota fanning movie blahk

  14. Abbey says:

    YES!!! I think she will be great as Jane!!!!!!! (but we will see) And finally, its about time, I have been waiting SOOOOOOOO long to see if she would be jane!! now im soooo exited to see who else will be cast!!

  15. ashleycullen says:

    cool…..i guess. She’s a good actress but, i dont know. Maybe she will play a good Jane in the movie. We’ll have to wait and see.

  16. Lyncoln says:

    I’m so happy it’s official!! I’ve seen Dakota play some dark characters so I think she’ll do great!

  17. Tatiana says:

    I am not happy at ALL!!! I agree with fally wally. They need to spend there money on more important things like the special effects am I the only one that is the least bit interested in seeing how they are going to make Taylor Launter become a werewolf? If they do a bad job with that I am going to be so disappointed.

    Honestly I dont think that Dakota Fanning is ‘JANE’ she cant possibly be Jane everytime I think of Dakota Fanning I think Uptown Girls but even now that I see pictures of her she doesnt look like Jane. She is amazing actress without a doubt but I cant see her as Jane.

    I thought they were going to bring in someone new like they did for Twilight with Robert Pattinson, or Jackson Rathbone, or Kellan Lutz, or Ashley Greene, or Nikki Reed, or Kristen Stewart. I mean some of the people from Twilight were people you had heard of but not really recognized, and I think Dakota Fanning is to big to be in New Moon

  18. Twigurl says:

    You know, I think you guys need to stop trashing Dakota unless theres some super secret trailer with her in it and youve already logically said she sucks. But, unless you have seen that super secret trailer GET OVER IT!!!!!!!
    She’s no your most ideal role but she fits the part for most Twilight fans.

  19. Amanda G says:

    NonoNonononono! uck uck uck uck uck! Ugh! Why? This is so stupid!! She has enough money, let someone else take the job! And when breaking dawn comes out she’s not going to be that little girl anymore!!! Why can’t people see that!!!! She will be like 17!! That is not young!!!!!

  20. Nellie says:

    Boo. I really don’t want to know what summit will be paying her for probably just a 10 minute scene.

  21. Amanda G says:

    She’s gonna wanna be on the front of the box and want all the fame the main stars get!!!! And there gonna give it to her cuz she’s “famous” ugh!!!!!!!!!! This makes me so mad

  22. Olinda says:

    i think she maybe fit in..
    but they are spending tooooo much money!
    well but is not my movie.. they now what to do

  23. Elizabeth says:


  24. Lauren says:

    I feel in a way people are being a little selfish when it comes to who is being cast. I mean if she was cast, obviously Stephenie Meyer is happy with it, and if Mrs Meyer is that’s all that counts because in the end it is HER vision that we fell in love with and if she approves then hey it must be working out to what she wanted. I’m happy for her, some people are upset because she didn’t read the books until she heard about being cast in the movie, but that’s pretty much what happened to everyone who was cast in the film.

  25. Brandi says:

    I agree with Lauren!! FIRST off, we don’t know how much she is getting paid yet! She might take a cut in her normal pay to play the smaller part. SECOND, if SM agrees, I am willing to give her a chance. THIRD, they haven’t said if they are makeing BD, and ALL actors will be older, and they will look older. LASTLY, not that I am saying she is or will be the best choice for Jane, but lets giver her a chance!! Not everyone (infact a lot of people) were not thrilled about RP being Edward, but look how that turned out. Not to many people can imagin someone better. Perhaps DF will end up doing such a terrific job that she completely blows us away. Again just give the girl a chance before you count her out.

  26. maria says:

    hey, to all you people who think that shes gonna be horrible, think about what people’s reactions were when rob was casted. it was much much much muchhhh worse than this reaction… and look at what happened now??? everyone thinks hes amazing for the role. so just think about it. just because dakota isnt what some people pictured doesn’tmean she wont do great. there isn’t one single person out there that matches peoples thoughts. its almost impossible to do that. and you know what, i think she’ll do an amazing job as jane. shes not what i pictured, but im 10000000000% ok with that. there isn’t one person on this planet that matches my description of jane. so all you people that are hating dakota, deal with it. its just a movie. not the end of the world. GET OVER IT.

  27. Shteff says:

    Oh well =]
    I personally thought they’d get unknown actors, but heck =]

  28. Ash says:

    I think she will do a great job! I am looking forward to seeing her in the part, but i have to be honest, in the book jane has an extremely small part. Yes, she’ll be back for eclipse & breaking dawn, but again not big parts. Still, i think she will be fantastic. She’s the perfect size and her face is exactly how i’ve pictured Jane.

  29. avii says:

    oh no… not good. not good at all. I don’t like it…-.- …not at all!!

  30. Shalimar says:

    I think she can do it!

  31. Michele Celine says:

    Hmm that’s interesting. I’m honestly not sure what to think. We’ll just have to wait and see…

  32. Shanise says:

    I’m happy to hear that she’ll be playing Jane and for those who aren’t she’ll only be on screen for a few minutes.

  33. gabby says:

    Im happy she got the part. Shes a really good actress and i bet she’ll do just fine Im sure we all want the movie to show the book justice so the better the cast the happier ill be

  34. Roxie says:

    I’m a happy camper….I think She’s a great actress….she can totally pull it off!

  35. Jasmine says:

    Sweetness! Especially with her hair black and the red contacts….She’s gonna be great! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Jazz (Team Cullen!)

  36. Bailey says:

    come on y couldnt they just keep the actors new and fresh unfamous people! cause i really really wish she wasnt jane ughh ๐Ÿ™

  37. Erin(: says:


  38. twihard23 says:

    completely agree with number 6 im really surprised summit would spend so much on such a small part, i mean they r way cheap.

  39. Lola says:

    Okay, I’m not the happiest person in the world right now. I really don’t think she’s Jane. Don’t get me wrong, I think she’s a great actress, but she is soooo not right for this part.
    I think Jane should have been a non hollywood person, a non popular person would have done a lot better in the role.
    I also agree with #6. New Moon has a tiny budget and if they want to do a good job with all the special effects (werewolves, sparkling…cause that was so not up to par in Twilight) they should not spend so much money on such a small role.

  40. Becky says:


  41. Lola says:

    A lot of people said she fit the description of most people’s “Jane” but from a lot of these comments she didn’t.
    -just had to add that

  42. Tiffany C. says:

    Yay! She was who I originally thought would be Jane!! I’m excited now!

    And to all you people who are freaking out, CHILL!! you all did this when Rob was cast as Edward! My goodness, its not the end of the world!

  43. Hanna says:

    Hey, she might do a good job, remember what we all said about Rob playing Edward? Yeah, they could have saved money, but give it a chance, don’t bash it until you see it. She is the only person who I could see playing Jane, she can do it. Just everybody breathe.

  44. twi fan says:

    YAYYYY why did it take sooo long!!!!!!

  45. Amber says:

    YAYY!!! you people need to chill she will be great!!

  46. Smitten says:

    She will do a stunning job. I am so happy for her and the movie? Why the heck to you guys want un-known actors for this movie? The better the first two movies are, the better the chance of the following books coming out sooner and better. Get over it, she’s a great actor who can portray Jane’s character. Stop hating. yayyyy for her. I hope she exceeds my expectations because of all the haters, which you call fans.

  47. Sarah :) says:

    Yay one actually confirmed!
    i think she’ll be a good Jane ๐Ÿ™‚
    thanks for putting it up

  48. Amber says:

    This is terrible!She will make the movie bad,maybe even worse because of too much Jacob!And now her!This cannot get much worse!

  49. k says:

    I think she could do well. but i dont think she will be stealing the show. and i dont think she’ll ruin it either, if anyone is going to do that it will be kristen. shes a terrible actress.. sorry.

  50. erinn says:

    i agree with all the noooooooooooos. not that i have anything against her i just think she doesnt fit that role right. shes too sweet to play one of the volturi. plus im not excited about edward leaving that mean more jacob. ugh. anyway whats done is done. but i hope im wrong about her and she does a good job.
