Eclipse Has Its Maria!

Thanks to Risky Business Blog!

The blog has recently informed us that Catalina will be taking the role of Jasper's former "boss" and creator in Eclipse.
**"Eclipse" has finally found its Maria and she is full of grace. Producers on Summit's third "Twilight" motion picture have cast Catalina Sandino Moreno, best-known for playing the title character in the indie drama "Maria Full of Grace," to play the vampire character of Maria. The CAA-repped actress will take on the role of a woman who tries to create a newborn army of vampires, recruiting the Confederate soldier Jasper to her cause. In Stephenie Meyer's book, the character is described as a petite brunette with a soft voice.The Colombian-born Sandino Moreno most notably starred in "Grace," in which she played a pregnant teacher who becomes a drug mule, as well as Steven Soderbergh's epic "Che" and the upcoming indie drama "Frail," in which she plays the title character, who's described as a naive Midwestern girl.**

I think this is my favorite part of movies, knowing who will play what roles. Exciting, isn't it?!? I can't wait to hear who is next!

I got an email to audition for the part but I'm too young. I think she'll do a great job though!!! ;-D
