As a daddy's girl, I have such a soft spot for Charlie and Billy Burke just doesn't tug at my heart strings. I literally pictured an actor, Kyle Chandler, while I was reading the books. I guess if he wasn't cast I wasn't gonna be happy because I already had an ideal in my head, lol. I'm not hating on Billy, I'm sure he's a perfectly good actor, but his facial features seem kind of strong and harsh, and I thought Charlie's face would be more expressive. And I am certainly not feeling the moustache I've seen in clips, haha.

lol! I was going to come in here and talk about how I don't really like this casting choice and I expected to be the odd man out. Hah! Well...... I guess not.

I'm pretty happy with everyone that was cast in this movie. Some took me a little longer than others but Billy Burke? I don't think so. :roll: He's just so not what I picture and, well, he looks too young to me. I know they had Bella young but he just doesn't look like a dad of a seventeen year-old to me. Plus, I think he just doesn't look like who my mind pictured as Charlie. I hope I'm completely surprised when I see the movie and end up loving him as Charlie.

I also pictured Charlie as a bit chubbier, a tad balding and DEFINITELY without a mustache. The mustache for me is just a big "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?!?!" moment. I could be wrong though, as with anything Stephenie Meyer is associated with, it will find a way to surprise me!! :D

I did'nt imagine Charlie like that.
In my eyes they should've cast an older, chubbier actor. Oh and without a mustache.
And his voice sounds so 'cold'.
But I could be wrong, I've only seen one scene of him.

it says a lot when you count on IMDb for this one...

I have no other comment.

yes I do. Could Billy Burke be any closer to Billy Black (whout being Billy Black). Weird.

Yeah...billy just doesnt work for me as Charlie. The moustache is distracting, and he does look waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too young to be Bella's father. I pictured Charlie as having a more kind, crinkly look in his eyes. I always saw him as very kind and almost with a little laughter in his eyes.....

Billy Burke just doesn't fit...and I dont even see a reason for him to be Charlie, always thought of him as a sweet guy and a little fat, because of something I read in New moon, well, since I can't do anything to change the fact its him, i'll just hope he does a good work :D
