A few thoughts about the Twilight cast

From left to right: Emmett (Kellan Lutz), Rosalie (Nikki Reed), Esme (Elizabeth Reaser), Edward (Robert Pattinson), Carlisle (Peter Facinelli), Alice (Ashley Greene), Jasper (Jackson Rathbone)

So, the first promo pics for the Cullens are finally here. Am I satisfied with this casting? Yes and no.

Despite considerable improvements on the hair front, Robert Pattinson still isn't Edward in my eyes. I don't mean to bash, but he totally lacks the charm and the gorgeousness. I just hope he's as good an actor as they say he is.

Esme and Carlisle both seem perfect and a great couple! Mr. Facinelli looks a little weird as a blonde (he kinda remembers me of Colin Farrell in Alexander), but it's no big deal.

Nikki Reed is such a surprise! Look at her, she's stunning! And they somehow managed to make her pale! Now that's my Rosalie!
I had no expectations for Emmett, probably because I've never found his character very interesting, but I have to admit he's another great casting choice.

Alice is... ok. Ashley Greene is short and thin just as I imagined Alice. The hair though... I think it should be smoother.
Jasper. Jasper is my favourite Cullen and... HOLY GOD, WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO HIM?! Number 1: Rathbone looks too young. Number 2: He looks too blond. Number 3: What the heck is wrong with that haircut?! Did he stick his fingers in an electric plug?!
