3 Things You Didn’t Know about Twilight’s Elizabeth Reaser

By Kim Palacios Introducing her as the “Angelina Jolie of orphan vampire adoption”, Jimmy Kimmel welcomed Elizabeth Reaser last night to his show. Given her few speaking parts in the Twilight films and Stephenie Meyer’s shallow development of her character, Esme Cullen, it was refreshing to see Reaser on the circuit, actively promoting the film.
She’s looking forward to eating whatever she wants. When Kimmel asked her what she was most excited about when it came to being in-between projects, said Reaser, “Mostly, I think, just getting fat for awhile. I’ve got two weeks I think when I can just sit down and eat.” Her reply to most coveted food? A Cinnabon.
She would like to spend some time in the sun. “I’ve been wearing SPF 85 for, like, three years now,” admitted the star. “It’s sort of unspoken, but understood,” said Reaser of show producers’ expectation that the stars maintain pale complexions. When internet photos of Nikki Reed sunbathing during vacation in Greece were seen by producer Wyck Godfrey, Reaser reported that Godfrey “gave [Reed] a call”.
Her mother owns the Detroit Pistons and Reaser herself is a fan. “I was always a fan,” Reaser said after admitting that Pistons ownership didn’t enter her family until her mother married Bill Davidson when Reaser was eighteen, “I have a picture of myself when I was eight with Bill Laimbeer”.

Potter, Twilight Stars Together in New Film “Abduction”

By Hanako M. Ricks Fans of both the Harry Potter and Twilight series will have good reason to see the film Abduction, as it features two very well known faces from both franchises: Jason Isaacs (who plays Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter flms), and Taylor Lautner (who is werewolf Jacob Black in the Twilight films).

Abduction centers on a young man who attempts to uncover the truth about his life after he discovers his baby photo on a missing persons website. Isaacs has reportedly been in kickboxing training, since he has a fight scene in the film with Lautner (who has studied martial arts since the age of 7 and has won several tournaments). The film will also star Alfred Molina, Sigourney Weaver and Maria Bello.
Abduction is scheduled for release sometime in 2011.

‘The Calling’s’ Alex Band releases first solo album After The Calling disbanded in 2005, the release of singer Alex Band’s solo album “We’ve All Been There” has been a long time coming. With his record actually completed in 2007, a restructuring of his label left the release in limbo. Since then, Alex has spent the last few years regaining control of the master recordings and establishing his own label, AMB Records, partnering with EMI for distribution.
“I’ve finally got creative control, which is the main reason I went through all of this,” he says. “So now I’m starting completely over as a solo artist and reintroducing myself to the world.” Today, he is proud to release his solo debut “We’ve All Been There,” featuring the hit single “Tonight.”
Alex says of his album – which charts the course of a relationship from start to finish – “It’s definitely about my own struggle, but I think everyone can relate to what I’ve been through from experiences in their lives. I think everything I’m talking about on the record is pretty universal. And knowing now that I’m writing for different cultures, with fans around the world, it’s important that what I’m writing about is generalized enough that people can take the songs in their own way.”
We’ve All Been There is available in stores and online. Starting July 7th, Alex will play a few dates with friend and Live vocalist Ed Kowalczyk before kicking off his first headlining tour in six years.
