BooBoo Stewart as Seth Clearwater in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” out now.
Got Eclipse mania yet? It just released and it’s a long weekend, soooo … I’m thinking a lot of you are gonna go out and watch. Just ’cause.
There’s a lot more eye candy in this third installment (namely, the Quileute werewolves), but in a recent poll held by Fandango, it turned out one little-known newcomer to the Twilight series got top prize for most anticipated Twilight newbie: 16-year-old BooBoo Stewart.
And why should we care? Because BooBoo (apparently a nickname from his mother that stuck) is of Japanese, Chinese and Korean descent from his mother’s side, and Russian, Scottish and Blackfoot Native American from his father (phew!).
But BooBoo’s no newbie to the entertainment scene. The actor (who plays the 15-year-old Quileute werewolf Seth Clearwater) is a former member of T-Squad, a Disney hip-hop/pop group, and sings with his sisters Fivel and Maegan Stewart, in TSC (The Stewart Clan). (You can download his song with Fivel, “Rainy Day,” on iTunes.)
BooBoo apparently doesn’t get too much screen time in Eclipse, but watch for him to really shine in the fourth installment of the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, hitting theaters in 2011. He’s already been touted as the next Taylor Lautner (and he does have more than a passing resemblance to him).
What do you think? Are you gonna watch Eclipse? And do you think BooBoo is the next teen heartthrob?
