This Could Have Been Your Edward Cullen, Apparently

Kellan Lutz, who played Emmett Cullen in the Twilight films, has come forward to say that he was going to actually have Robert Pattinson‘s role of Edward but he decided to turn it down for some reason. He’s saying this years after the fact, so I don’t really get his point, nor do I particularly believe him, but who knows. Stranger things have happened.

From Access Hollywood:

“The role just didn’t… I just didn’t care to entertain it,” Kellan said on Monday’s Access Hollywood Live.

“I really wanted to play a happy role or no role for a little bit,” he told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, explaining that his role in “Generation Kill” left him wanting something more upbeat.

“I didn’t care to audition for [the role of Edward] because he was a bit moody and emotionally challenged,” the 28-year-old, who played Edward’s brother, Emmett Cullen, in the series, continued.

“But then I loved Emmett… I’m so blessed to have been able to play him,” he said.

Uh… for some reason, I just can’t see it. Also, I bet you he’s kicking himself now because he is barely a working actor now. Then again, I don’t think he’s particularly anything special (not that Pattinson is Marlon Brando or anything) so whatever.

  • I remember him talking about how he wasn’t in a hurry to win his Oscar, one he’d get it… and of course, he totally could have had that super famous popular lead role in the super famous popular film franchise, but he just didn’t feel it, so he declined. For artistic reasons. That’s just sad. Doesn’t he have any friends to tell him how silly he sounds when he blurts out these things?

  • He has Hercules coming out, so he is working.

    He’s a strange dude. I don’t know if he’s wearing a wrong shade of makeup or if his hair color is off, but the kid looks weird to me.
    Not feeling him AT ALL.
