After watching The Indian, it’s easy to see why it was selected as Best Screenplay at Breckenridge Festival of Film, Best Feature at the Cinema City International Film Festival and Best Ensemble Cast at the Monaco Film Festival, along with several other awards. This independent film, written and directed by James R. Gorrie, features Matt Dallas (of Kyle Xy fame) as Danny, a troubled teen raised by his aunt when his father ditches him. But when Danny is arrested for breaking a window at a motorcycle shop after being tossed out of a party, his Hepatitis infected father Skip, played by Sal Landi, pays the bail money and reenters his life in hopes that Danny will agree to be a partial liver donor.
Danny doesn’t trust Skip, or really, anyone else, so when Skip suggests they bond by putting together an old Indian motorcycle that belonged to Danny’s grandfather, »

The 19-year-old Vancouver native, most known for her role in the TV show Kyle Xy, will be playing Lucy — part of a trio of female vampires who were active during the Southern Vampire Wars. Lucy and co. feature in Jasper's backstory, and were partly responsible for creating a vampire army.
Fans will likely be happy with this casting choice, as Lucy is supposed to have fair hair and snow-white skin. Prout looks like she'll fit the role well, and hopefully won't end up looking as unrealistic as the other vampires did in Twilight.

Filming on the Vancouver set of "Eclipse" is getting close to winding down after a nearly three-month shoot, but vampire casting news continues to trickle in. The latest addition to the "Twilight" family is 19-year-old Kirsten Prout, who will play the role of Lucy, according to a report from E! News.
Prout is best known as a co-star of the ABC Family sci-fi series "Kyle Xy," in which she played Amanda Bloom, a neighbor and love interest of Kyle, the cloned human at the center of the action. She appeared alongside Jennifer Garner in 2005's "Elektra," and in his review for that movie, Kurt Loder called her "plucky in an agreeably unirritating way" and said she "suggests a pint-size Renée Zellweger."
Meet The Cast Of 'Eclipse'
In the "Twilight" saga, »
Jasper's backstory just got a little bit easier to envision. The news broke last week that "Kyle Xy" player Kirsten Prout joined the cast of "Eclipse," third movie in the "Twilight" series. She'll play Lucy, a vampire from Jasper Hale's (Jackson Rathbone) past who factors prominently into his coming to terms with joining the ranks of the undead. For those readers out there who aren't as familiar with "Twilight" (all two of you), you can see Jasper being thrown into a grand piano in the "New Moon" trailer below.
Prout is currently in Vancouver shooting for Lifetime miniseries "Seven Deadly Sins," Bloody Disgusting reports. She'll presumably join director David Slade and the "Twilight" team soon, as the "Eclipse" shoot is currently on in Vancouver.
Beware readers, mild spoilers ahead. Lucy doesn't appear in the present-day telling of "Eclipse," but she'll factor into Jasper's origin-revealing flashback. A former Confederate soldier during the Civil War, »

Another actress has joined the cast ensemble for Kristen Stewart's "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse". A representative for Kirsten Prout has confirmed to E! Online that the 19-year-old beauty will be part of the third installment of the vampire drama movies, starring as vampire Lucy.
In the David Slade-directed film, Prout's character, Lucy, is described as a prominent part of the back story of Jackson Rathbone's Jasper Hale. She teams up with another vampire named Maria, who is played by Catalina Sandino Moreno, to build a bloodsucking army. Unfortunately, Maria and Jasper will eventually kill the Canada-born star, so she may not appear in the next "Twilight" film, "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn".
Kirsten Prout previously portrayed Abigail Miller in "Elektra" alongside Jennifer Garner. She has also made an appearance in sci-fi TV series "Stargate Sg-1" to star as Nesa in the episode entitled "Birthright". Additionally, the young »
The newest addition to the cast of Twilight is, predictably, a hot young girl. E! says that Canadian actress Kirsten Prout is joining the cast of The Twilight Saga Eclipse to play the vampire Lucy. Lucy works with another vampire named Maria (being played by Catalina Sandino Moreno) to build a vampire army. And now I.m going to tell you that she.s eventually killed because, even though it.s technically a spoiler, the only people who might care have already read it in the book. Kirsten has been working in genre film and television since the age of 8. She.s done everything from Stargate: Sg-1 to Elektra. More recently she.s spent a lot of time as a regular on the ABC Family series Kyle Xy. Now she.s 19 and ready to be ogled by, er, Twilight Moms. »
Not sure how we missed this story earlier in the week, but it did break the day after the Reaper Awards, so you can't blame us for moving a little slowly. In any event, it looks like The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has found its Lucy, Canadian actress Kirsten Prout.
Bloody Disgusting got the early word on Prout's selection, mentioning her past roles as Amanda in the TV series "Kyle Xy" and Elektra's ward Abby. But how exactly does Lucy fit into the Eclipse storyline?
Turning to the always helpful Twilight Saga Wiki for some assistance, we learned that Lucy was a Southern vampire who worked with Maria (Catalina Sandino Moreno), the vamp who made Jasper (Jackson Rathbone), one of Edward's "siblings" in the Cullen family. She helped put together an army for Maria before eventually turning on her and being killed by Maria and Jasper. Since the character is described as tall, »
