Michael Schoeffling and Diane Lane for your viewing pleasure, via $%#@ Yeah Bella.
We all know what sort of success Twilight has brought the young stars in the franchise, and whether or not you love KStew and RPattz, it's hard not to wonder who might have been our Edward and Bella. So, why not go further? Who would have been the likely suspects or who would you have liked to see as Edward Cullen and Bella Swan (or the rest of the characters) in another decade? In the '80s or '90s, who would have been your 'dream team'?
Well, I may only be in my 20s, but I've always loved movies from the '80s and for me? I've always loved Diane Lane for Bella. Even in the 80s, she would have been a bit older but she's always been youthful, sweet, and yet still has that attitude our Bella needs. And, don't forget—She did play Kristen's mom in Jumper.
For Edward, I can't think of anyone other than model-turned-actor, Michael Schoeffling. Name not ringing any bells? Well, how about Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles? The film itself is over 20 years old, and girls still swoon over Jake Ryan. I wonder if our Edward Cullen will still have that sort of impact in 20 years...
But of course, that's just my opinion. Let's say it's 1978, 1984, or 1996—who do YOU think would have been cast in the Twilight movies?
