We’re still months away from the final installment, “Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” but we already have a sense of where the actors stand and what their careers should look like when they move on from vampires.
Below I’ve ranked eight celebrities who owe their stardom to 2008′s “Twilight” by how powerful they currently sit in Hollywood. I omitted the older actors since we already have a good sense of what their legacy will be. I’ve also provided a “Floor” and “Ceiling” for each name as a comparison to the careers theirs may resemble if they miss their potential or reach it.
8) JACKSON RATHBONE
Floor: New Kids on the Block member you don’t remember
Ceiling: Brad Pitt
Rathbone is the biggest enigma of the cast. In person, he’s arguably the most charismatic of them all. You’d think that would translate into more screen time on more projects. Maybe he hasn’t been given any memorable roles outside of “Twilight” because he’s busy with his band, 100 Monkeys? If he dedicates himself to acting over anything else, I could see him eclipsing everyone else on this list.
