Dakota Fanning to star in New Moon?

Rumor has it, starlet Dakota Fanning is in the running for a supporting role in New Moon, the second installation of the Twilight series.   Fanning is allegedly being considered to play Jane, a member of the Volturi, an Italian vampire clan who play watchdog for the worldwide vampire population. Although I am a Dakota fan,  I'm not so sure about how I feel about this.  Similar to my response to the rumor of Vanessa Hudgens joining the cast, I think Dakota has too much star power for this role.  While the cast is now pretty well-known, before the film, most of the cast were not even blips on the celebrity radar.  To put a pretty-famous child star in a supporting role takes away from the main characters roles and what they do for the film.  A star like Dakota needs to be first-billed, not a minor role halfway down the credit list.  I am by no means putting Dakota down in anyway, in fact, I think her acting chops far exceed those of basically every actor and actress from Twilight.  I really hope that this rumor remains as such, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

I cannot picture Dakota Fanning as Jane in New Moon. The part is reserved for someone who is intimidating...I could kick Ms. Fanning in the fanny. :-P

Keira Knightley would be an awesome pick for the role of Jane. Keira is beautiful, which Jane is supposed to be and Dakota Fanning really hasn't blossomed into just yet, and she can play someone who is downright scary. I can picture that.

Go EBuzz!

Like I said on the record...Dakota Fanning is perfect for the role. She is just a scary little girl. I would not want to piss her off or be her baby sitter.
