‘Twilight’ Mania Grips BlogTalkRadio as ‘Eclipse’ Opens Nationwide

It all started back in April 2009 when Taylor Lautner dropped in on Stardish Radio from the set of New Moon to deliver the latest Twilight dish.

During that live interview, more than 30,000 rabid fans logged onto BlogTalkRadio—and hung on Taylor’s every word—while another 200,000 listened on-demand.twilight-mania3

‘Twilight’ Star Michael Welch: Jealous of Edward and Jacob?

Sounds like one of the Twilight humans has a case of supernatural sour grapes.

Interviewed on Film Festival Radio, Michael Welch, who plays Mike Newton – Bella Swan’s human suitor – tells us he’s none too keen on the monsters who populate the smash-hit flick.

“I was afraid of vampires as a child,” he tells host Janice Malone. “Because we have no power as humans.

CAPTION: "It's gonna get a little darker as we go along, and appeal to guys a bit more," Michael (above) tells us of the "Twilight' sequels.

"It's gonna get a little darker as we go along, and appeal to guys a bit more," Michael (above) tells us of the "Twilight" sequels.

“It’s like, if you’re in the ocean and you’re confronted by a shark, you’re out of your element. If that shark wants to eat you, you’re going to be eaten. Similar with vampires.

“I’ve thought over the years – I’ve thought a lot about this – if I’d want to be a vampire. Because there’s a lot of elements of it that are so cool and sexy and dark and interesting,” he continues.

“But the thing that I’ve come across over and over again, in researching it and thinking about it, is that they’re miserable, miserable people. So I don’t think I would want to be a vampire.”

Michael also hints that, in Twilight‘s upcoming sequel, New Moon, the green-eyed monster may be partly responsible for his aversion to non-humans.

“My role as Mike Newton, a high school kid who continues to have a crush on Bella, stays the same,” he says.

“I don’t get to be involved in all this vampire-werewolf fun action,” he adds, referring to the respective roles of Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner).

The Twilight Saga: New Moon opens November 20.
