Lee Pace is in negotiations to join the cast of Breaking Dawn, the two-part final chapter of the Twilight Saga that we already had a little chat about.
Pace is 31-year-old actor, probably best known as a star of 2007’s offbeat TV show Pushing Daisies, but he also had roles in that great movie Tarsem Singh‘s The Fall, the Tom Ford film A Single Man, the kid-friendly Marmaduke and When in Rome.
So, this time, Pace is reportedly set to play Garrett, “a Nomad vampire first introduced towards the end of Breaking Dawn.”
Described as an adventurer, with a tall stature, ruby red eyes and long sandy brown hair, he’s romantically linked to Denali vampire Kate, and assists the Cullens as they prepare to fight the Volturi.
We previously reported that Academy Award winner Bill Condon will direct The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, based on the fourth novel in author Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series.
Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner all return as the stars, with Billy Burke as Charlie Swan, Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Ashley Greene as Alice and Kellan Lutz as Emmett also back for the final two installments.
The release date for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 has been set November 16, 2012, a full year after The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 hits theaters (November 18, 2011).
