Birmingham, Spencer in Shouting Secrets

Gil Birmingham Cast in “Shouting Secrets” With Twilight’s Chaske Spencer and GH's Tyler Christopher

By Rachel FlorianoTwilight actor Gil Birmingham has been cast opposite fellow Twilight cast member Chaske Spencer and General Hospital’s Tyler Christopher in the Korinna Sehringer film “Shouting Secrets.”

Gil will play Cal, the father of Wesley (played by Chaske Spencer). Wesley is a successful young writer in Los Angeles who is called back to his Native American upbringing after ten years in order to visit his sick mother. Tyler will play Tushka, a half-breed Indian who, when his mother falls ill, is forced to look at his failure to breach the confines of reservation life.
Comment:  Uh, Birmingham is 43 and Spencer is 35. They could play brothers, but father and son? That may look a little odd.

Spencer is old enough to play the father of Taylor Lautner, 18, his fellow Twilight werewolf. Filmmakers should try to do more age-appropriate casting.

This looks like an "Indie" film to me...no Hollywood studio involvement that I can see.

In this case, "Hollywood" means the entire industry, not just the studios. But I'll change it to say "filmmakers."
