I hope you’re ready for another craze that’s sweeping the nation that you don’t understand.  See, this is the first cast photo for the upcoming Twilight movie, an adaptation of a book by Mormon housewife-cum-novelist Stephanie Meyer – first of a series of three that sold 5.3 million copies.

The book, which supposedly has an upstart following rivaling the early days of Harry Potter, is about a teenage girl who risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire.  It sounds like Babysitter’s Club meets Chick Lit meets Anne Rice – and it might be some sort of undercover abstinence parable.  I’m cool with that because usually all the abstinence crowd manages to teach chicks is how to enjoy anal.   

Anyway, the movie is set to be directed by Catherine Hardwicke of Lords of Dogtown and Thirteen fame, and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Michael Welch, Justin Chon, and a bunch of other asswipes I’ve never heard of.  All I can say is that as long as this doesn’t lead to a bunch of private school douches playing competitive quidditch, I’ll be able to keep my punk stabbin’ knife a-sheathed. After the jump you can watch G4’s visit to the set.
