We give you a peek at the other lines that could have made it into the film instead.

VENICE, California — In the time since it was first revealed by MTV last year, it has gone on to become one of the most famous lines in the “Twilight” world.

“You’d better hold on tight, spider monkey.”

And while an actual spider monkey isn’t nearly as cute as Kristen Stewart, the phrase has taken on a life of its own, inspiring MySpace pages, T-shirts, and dozens of other fan tributes. Now, “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke is cluing fans in on the eight other lines that nearly became Robert Pattinson dialogue in that “spider monkey” scene.

“There’s some stuff in here like … well, like the ‘Hold on tight, spider monkey’ line,” laughed Hardwicke last week when we visited her house to see the fabled rooms where she held her “Twilight” casting sessions. In the kitchen’s glass case, she showed us a dog-eared copy of her shooting script — with the “spider monkey” line scribbled into a margin.

“That would be [written in] the night before,” Hardwicke remembered of the evening before she shot the now-famous scene where Kristen Stewart’s Bella hops on the back of Pattinson’s Edward, getting an eye-opening glimpse at his superhuman powers as they frolic through the woods together. “I woke up in the middle of the night. I thought, ‘They’re going to be climbing that tree, and they’re not going to have anything to say. It’s just going to be another scene of them looking into each other’s eyes.’ ”

Unfortunately, the writers’ strike had begun, and “Twilight” screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg was no longer available to provide dialogue. “So I typed up, like, 10 ideas,” Hardwicke recalled. “And thought, ‘OK, maybe they could say this …’ ”

At this point during our interview, Hardwicke went over to her computer and printed out a sheet from her personal archives. Titled “Sc. 86 pt. DIALOGUE ALTERNATIVES,” the sheet lists the eight other options that Hardwicke wrote that evening. Read more…

A vast majority of Tom Felton fans reacted positively to the news that Tom could be in the running for a vampire role in Twilight. Twitter user MegTao told Feltbeats.com that she thought Tom would do the part justice. “I mean, come on, it’s Tom Felton. He fits the description of the character incredibly well.”

MegTao also thought Tom would catch on to the Riley role easily due to his similarities with Draco Malfoy. “Draco is normally calm and calculating, as is Riley,” she said. “But they both have that desperate edge to them. And, both characters really want (and need) to please their Masters.”

Pepper, another Felton fan from New York, agreed with MegTao. “Tom would be absolutely perfect,” Pepper said. “He has such a sweet and innocent nature about him, and yet he has a skill at playing (very well) a dark and complex character.”

Winner of “American Idol” season 1, Kelly Clarkson, joins the long list of A-list celebs who have a crush on Robert Pattinson, publicly admitting that she admires the British actor. “Yes, he’s an attractive guy,” she told Australia’s 2 Day “Kyle and Jackie O Show”, adding “But I think girls are more so into that whole Dracula bit. It’s very sexy … I don’t know him. I’ve never really seen him in interviews either … [But] yeah, he’s cute.”

More on what we briefly noted: Because the creative drought in Hollywood isn’t letting up anytime soon, what better time than the present to roll out yet another musician’s biopic? Since we’ve already dispensed with the obligatory Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash flicks and aren’t quite ready for a look into Freddie Mercury’s life, why not settle on the man who gave capable and unfortunate musicians alike a chance to sing their own “Hallelujah”s?

Currently competing for the chance to play Jeff Buckley are heart-throbs Robert Pattinson and James Franco. Since auditions and line-readings are things of a former era in the world of casting, the final decision will probably come down to whichever thesp can demonstrate the dreamiest Buckley pout.

You people are not going to like this. And I am so gonna love this.

You want me to talk about Robert Pattinson. You want me to wax forth about his irresistible cadaver complexion, and his Englishy English accent, and his hair, which is so vertical it can pick up radio waves from any lonely 12-year-old heart on planet Earth.

Sure, I’ll talk about him.

Here’s the truth: He is nowhere near the “hottest” twentysomething actor on the planet, at least, in the eyes of producers, directors, casting execs and me.Outside of the bubble of tabloids—and, um, E!—Pattz has little traction with the people who count. In fact, among the power players, several other young actors are kicking Pattz’ concave buttocks…

Let’s start with worldwide bankability—the ability to sell or greenlight a movie based on name, or face recognition, or reputation. Pattinson isn’t even in the top 10. Read more…

Robert Pattinson hopes to “surprise” himself with ‘New Moon’.

The actor – who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the second movie of the ‘Twilight’ franchise – has deliberately avoided viewing footage of the film, but says the brief clips he has seen make him think the finished movie will be “amazing”.

He said: “I haven’t seen the trailer yet. I haven’t seen anything! I mean, from what I’ve seen from playback and stuff when I’ve been shooting it, it looks amazing. So I think it should be good. I’m keeping it as a surprise from myself.”

Meanwhile, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is lining the British star up to play mobster Joe Gallo in an adaptation of the Tom Folsom-penned biography ‘The Mad Ones’, being impressed when he forced Robert to auction kisses at the Cannes Film Festival.

He told Us Weekly magazine: “Robert Pattinson – I made him kiss girls in Cannes! He’s the most charming, wonderful young man. Read more…

Robert Pattinson’s “New Moon” co-star Kellan Lutz has denied the actor resorted to make-up tricks to gain a muscled torso for the “Twilight” sequel.

The British star’s stomach has come under scrutiny from Internet gossips in recent weeks, with many speculating his muscled appearance is the result of clever shading by the film’s make-up artists. Read more…
