kellan lutz talks turning down edward cullen twilight role

He makes a better Emmett anyway!

Kellan Lutz recently revealed something that could have changed the course of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s lives forever!

He was supposed to play Edward Cullen in the Twilight series!

The actor talked about the role being offered to him, and said:

“The role just didn’t… I just didn’t care to entertain it. I really wanted to play a happy role or no role for a little bit… I didn’t care to audition for [the role of Edward] because he was a bit moody and emotionally challenged. But then I loved Emmett… I’m so blessed to have been able to play him.”

Fair enough! Kellan had just filmed Generation Kill and was looking for something less drama-y at the time too!

He added that he’d totes play Emmett again, and even some other roles, but didn’t say which ones.

This is just one of those times when everything ended up working out perfectly because we can’t imagine Twilight any other way!

    Ya right! Are we suppose to believe him. He is a shitty actor and everyone knows it.

    His "MOVIE-EXTRA " career is over. It's pretty bad in Hollywood when your are type-cast as a movie extra and that ends any chance at working in Hollywood again.

    So he would rather make no money? Seems like a dumb move to me. Lol I wouldn't mind playing any character for that amount of money.

    Kellan Lutz is not Edward Cullen material. He does not have the face , moodiness of Edward. He is not a handsome man. He is to big and bulky. Lastly, he can not act.

    He's too old to go back to being an underwear model…

    I don't believe anyone ever wanted him to play Edward. Kellan Lutz is a giant ego with no talent.

    Yeah, he declined the lead and took a secondary character with two lines -with no jokes by the way- in the whole movie just because it was too moody. I love you Kellan but please don't try to feed us bullshit, it won't help you.
