Jen from the TwilightLexicon got the chance to interview Gil Birmingham (Billy Black) about his music.
Q: What are the inspirations for your lyrics and music?
My music comes from the emotional place I’m in when I write it. It’s an outpouring of the soul of those emotions through the guitar.
What genre does your music generally fit into?
My music is classic rock and blues for the most part.
The interview also includes an MP3 of his original guitar solo called “A Walk in the Park.” Read it all HERE!
BoxOffice.com had a chance to interview hottie Taylor Lautner about the Twilight Saga movies and more:
BoxOffice: As an actor, how do you make the audience root for Jacob and get invested in his feelings when the outcome of the love triangle is already known?
Taylor: Well, you try and take things one step at a time. When I’m filming New Moon, I’m not thinking about Eclipse. When I’m filming Eclipse, I’m not thinking about Breaking Dawn. We just have to focus on the movie that we’re doing.
BoxOffice: What is it like for your family and friends to see people scream at pictures of you topless?
Taylor: [Laughs] It’s weird. It’s embarrassing for me, and I’m sure it’s awkward for all of them.
BoxOffice: Have you gotten teased about it at family dinners?
Taylor: Not yet, and I’m hoping that doesn’t happen because I’ll start blushing.
BoxOffice: What do you like about playing Jacob?
Taylor: I love Jacob and Bella’s relationship. It’s very different from Edward and Bella’s. Jacob and Bella start off as really good friends. They become best friends—they can tell each other anything, they do whatever together, ride motorcycles. I love that. And then their relationship starts growing into more and more, and you wonder if they’re going to go past friends. I love being able to do that. And work with an amazing actress, Kristen Stewart, and all of the help around us, our director Chris Weitz, the whole crew. It’s a lot of fun.

The Collider interviewed Michael Sheen (Aro) about his upcoming projects:
So going into “Twilight: New Moon”, were you nervous about taking this role because you had already come from a franchise like that, or were you more excited for the role? What was your thought process and what was it like making the film with all the hubbub around it?
Michael Sheen: I was mainly excited about it because I knew I would make my daughter very happy. Up front, that was the main reason. And then I read the books and I really enjoyed the books. I didn’t think I was going to, but I really did enjoy them. Then I was concerned that the fans of “Twilight” would be like, “But he’s played a werewolf; we can’t have him as a vampire,” and all that. But it hasn’t been like that. And because it was a very different character and I could sort of lose myself in it, hopefully people won’t have a problem with me having been in this other werewolf/vampire franchise. So when I went to do it, I just loved the character. I relished the opportunity to be there and be part of it. Now I’m just very pleased to have a whole new generation of people I can scare.

HITFIX talked to Anna Kendrick at the Toronto International Film Festival about movies she has been in and will be in.
Q: OK, the ‘Twilight’ questions you knew were coming. Did you shoot ‘Air’ after ‘New Moon’
[Actually] I went to shoot ‘New Moon’ while I was still shooting ‘Up in the Air.’ I had to run back and forth.
Q: Was that hard?
It’s funny because the characters are so different and I was wrapped up in Natalie world, but Jessica, the character that I play in the series, is such a silly girl it was almost like a little escape to go and just play and just monologue about nothing. Basically, I would go up to Vancouver and shoot a scene where something was [already] written, but [director] Chris Weitz would tell me to keep talking because we had to do all of it in one take as a ‘walk and talk’ and have it feel the space. So, he’d just tell me to say random stuff and it was like stretching in the middle of doing a marathon.
