Even though actor Peter Facinelli, who plays Dr. Carlisle Cullen in ‘Twilight,’ admits he hasn’t been keeping up with all the ‘New Moon’ rumors, he is excited to hear that Dakota Fanning might be joining the cast as vampire Jane. “She is a phenomenal actress… [The role of Jane] would be great for her,” Facinelli exclusively told PopEater.
“I always think of her as this 12-year-old girl, but she is older now. What is she like 16 now?” he joked.
Fanning, who turns 15 in February, is in talks to play bloodsucker Jane opposite Robert Pattinson in ‘New Moon.’ The character of Jane is described in casting docs as a terrifying petite blond with a “Botticelli angel-like face… [and] crimson irises.”
