Twilight ’80s Edition

Aug 29th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

MTV has re-imagined what Twilight would have been like if it was made in the ’80s, and…well, I’ll let their article and photo gallery speak for itself!

Johnny Depp as Jacob Black: Yes ladies, before he became the hot Johnny Depp of the 1990s and 2000s, he was the hot Johnny Depp of the 1980s. The star of such fare as “Edward Scissorhands” and seminal TV classic “21 Jump Street,” Depp brings the sexy protectiveness that a role like Jacob needs. And he even had long hair back then!

    They stole my idea! I was going to do “What if Twilight was an 80s Musical?” Here’s my list for all you other children of the 80s!! I just wish I had the time and effort to post pictures with them all so the youngsters could be in on the joke `cause I think I’m pretty spot on. Oh well, guess they’ll just have to google!

    Edward was Rick Astley; Bella was Tiffany; Jasper was Simon LeBon; Alice was Jane Weidlin from the GoGos (who I actually pictured as Alice the whole time I was reading); Rosalie was Samantha Foxx; and Emmet was Bo Jackson – I know he’s black but Bo knows everything right??? Or – wait – who was that aweful OK Sooners football player turned actor? He was big, he could work if he doesn’t have to say or sing anything!

    Carlyle was Patrick Swayze and Esme was Amy Grant. Kurt Loder was Charlie and Martha Quinn was Renee. Lou Diamond Philips was Jacob – If he can play Richie Valenz, he can be a singing werewolf!

    As far as the bad vamps go, Mili Vanilli (either one) was Laurent (since he only lip syncs anyway); Taylor Dane was Victoria and Axel Rose was James! Welcome to the Jungle Bella!!

    Patrick Swayze is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood, he would surely be missed by a lot of his fan.
