Kiowa Gordon, who plays werewolf Embry Call in the Twilight movies, was arrested in Tempe, Arizona, early Monday morning. The 21-year-old actor was taken in to custody because of an active warrant from 2010. The teen wolf had failed to make a court appearance in Mesa, AZ, in September 2010 related to a DUI arrest, and had also missed a hearing in Scottsdale after having plead guilty to drug paraphernalia possession and giving alcohol to a minor. It sounds like he should have stuck to jumping off cliffs in Forks, Washington.
The Arizona actor became a part of the New Moon cast thanks to author Stephenie Meyer. The actor is a Mormon and a member of the same church ward as the writer, who suggested he join the Quileute wolf pack. The actor will reprise his role as Embry in the upcoming Breaking Dawn Part 1.

Turns out Carlise Cullen isn't the only vampire with a compassionate streak. This 4th of July, in a benefit for the Make-A-Wish foundation of Oregon, some of the Twilight and New Moon cast members are taking part in a day of Vampire Baseball.
The Portland event starts with a fans game in the morning. Some of the winners from that game will then face off with cast in the afternoon, playing a game in front of stands filled with Twilighters. A percentage of ticket sales from the event benefit the charity that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
If you can't make it to the event — scheduled to have Rachelle Lefevre, Peter Facinelli, Edi Gathegi, Michael Welch, Solomon Trimble, Christian Serratos, Ayanna Berkshire, Catherine Grimme, Alex Meraz, and Kiowa Gordon at bat — don't worry. We're going to be there to report on it and will have footage to share in coming weeks.
And yes, you read that right. Even the evil Victoria is choosing to spend her holiday helping kids. Posted 07.02.09 by reelz
Robert Pattinson may have just met his heartthrob match in the form of four toned, topless werewolves. Summit released the first New Moon promotional picture, which shows Alex Meraz (Paul), Chaske Spencer (Sam), Bronson Pelletier (Jared), and Kiowa Gordon (Embry) looking moody and decidedly non-canine. Note the tattoo they're all sporting, which looks like it could be the Quileute equivalent of a Cullen Crest.
Twilighters are the most excited they've been for months, which is proof enough that the fandom is as strong as ever. The much-anticipated sequel hits theaters on November 20th, with midnight openings inevitable. It's tipped to take more cash than predecessor Twilight, which has grossed just under $380 million dollars worldwide to date. Posted 04.22.09 by reelz
