Actressva_jesse_56461710_600 So is it true that "High School Musical" hottie Vanessa Hudgens might, just might, be cast be as werewolf Leah Clearwater in the "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon"?

"Twilight’s" Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen, reportedly told MTV at a Golden Globes afterparty that Hudgens has actually auditioned for the role.

"I think she’d be great," MTV quotes Greene as saying of Hudgens.

There’s no confirmation yet, but it sure would help explain what VHud was doing posing earlier this week at a Golden Globes swag suite with Taylor Lautner, the actor just confirmed to return as Jacob Black.

Early PR push, perhaps?

You gotta admit, that is veeery suspicious.
