Breaking Dawn Casting News: Ty Olsson To Play ‘Phil Dwyer’

39 Comments December 15, 2010 by Filed Under: Breaking Dawn Casting, Phil Dwyer, Ty Olsson

We previously posted Summit announcing the supporting cast in Breaking Dawn including Ty Olsson.  Summit didn’t announce what role the supporting cast will be playing.   The Twilight Examiner, Amanda Bell, reported Ty Olsson will be playing Phil Dwyer, Bella’s stepfather. 

Twilight Wiki:

In Twilight, Phil travels constantly playing minor league baseball, so he spent a majority of his time away from his new family. Because of this, Bella chose to move to Forks with her biological father, Charlie Swan, to give Renée and Phil time to be together. Eventually, Phil was able to get a contract signed with the Suns, a minor league baseball team in Jacksonville, Florida, and he and Renée moved there together.

In Twilight, Phil was played by actor Matt Bushell.   

I didn’t think Ty was playing Jason Jenks.

  • LegHitchThis

    Damn!! So Bella’s mom bagged a guy who’s so built like this? Lol

  • WhyAmICoveredInFeathers?

    I figured he would play Phil.
    I guess this means Wendell Pierce is playing J. Jenks. Idk how I feel about that….I always pictured someone like Paul Guilfoyle playing J. Jenks. Google him.
    But hey, Wendell’s great on The Wire, so he could do it. ;) It’ll be great.

  • fangsandfurforever

    Now this makes sense. I couldn’t see this guy as Jenks. However, I can see Pierce as Jenks.

    rotf – i forgot about phil lol

  • LegHitchThis

    Same! Lets just say Phil bulked up..
    Oh yeah. I remember him having a broken leg in BD. XD

  • touchmeimcold_forEC

    Alright I was racking my brain trying to figure out when Phil would make an appearance in BD. Totally forgot about the wedding.. well didn’t forget about the wedding, just the minor detail of her step dad being there. Hahaha so thank you!

  • tpec1991 SaveaHORSE/RideaVAMP!

    lol!! me too!!! i was like… phil??!! who is phil??? and i re-listed all the vampires in my mind… until i read the description!!! awwww poor phil!!! we forgot about him and he IS the main reason why bella moves to forks!!!!! i mean with out him bella would maybe have NEVER met EDWARD!!! OMG!!!!

  • tpec1991 SaveaHORSE/RideaVAMP!

    he is TOTALLY like i picture him LOL!!

  • McVampy / KangaStew

    this dude is buff.
    hello biceps haha

    but yeah he seems to look like the guy that we saw in Twilight as Phil (for like, 2 seconds) so not a big deal that they changed characters.

    kinda was a big deal to me when in Twilight they had those 2 randoms at La Push and then Jacob suddenly had hot friends in NM. but meh.

    this guys hot so hopefully he can act for the 1 or 0.5 of a scene that he’s in.

    P.S. ummm Renee…. you must be good in bed…

  • TeamVampiresWearSwimmies

    I’m hoping for a Copstache vs. Buffy type of scene at the wedding, wohoo.

    (Charlie, I got your back, baby).

  • EdwardsVenom/BuyCurlyJewelry!!


    That had to be a blow to Charlie’s ego. Yikes.

    Don’t worry Charlie. YOU, my friend, are the “Man”!

    ‘staches do tickle after all. ;)

  • Unique Jenique

    What happened to the old guy?! Come on! Stop switching up the actors, even if they were only in there for one movie and a few shots! But the new guy does look spicy hot :)

  • Mullet Mofowski (CF)

    Well … he looks like a baseball player. I guess that would be the point. :P

  • EAD_TwistAArmpitHair

    This is more how I pictured Phil anyway, even though we barely saw the other actor.

  • EAD_TwistAArmpitHair

  • EAD_TwistAArmpitHair


  • EAD_TwistAArmpitHair

  • TeamIdDoRPatz

    How in the world does he have a last name. I am 100% positive it was neverrrrr mentioned in any of the books. Did I miss something?

  • KL☼ W4E♥Ami♣BD1♂BD2♀Cptvs↑

  • tpec1991 SaveaHORSE/RideaVAMP!

    lol!! he was at the wedding… remember when bella says goodbye waving from the car while she and edward are going to the honeymoon that she says phil at renee’s back with his hand on her waist or something like that and renee was holding charlies hand???

  • Britt

    Isn’t Phil supposed to be younger than Renee?

  • RockFan

    Awesome. This adds balance since Charlie has a hot, new mate as well in Sue Clearwater.

  • Jordyn-Team DJ Joyride

  • LegHitchThis


  • LegHitchThis

    Yeah I barely remember what he looks like.
    And it’s been like 3 movies. Who would notice the change? XD
    Maybe his voice might be really different. I remember 1st Phil’s voice.

  • Pink Addiction 23

    I agree. I preferred the first one.

  • EAD_TwistAArmpitHair

    He just didn’t have this “form” then… lol
