Many fans have been adamant about not wanting any actors from The Twilight Saga franchise to show up in The Hunger Games films, if for no reason other than to avoid even more comparisons of the two franchises by the media. And according to The Insider, fans may not be the only ones trying to keep the casts apart.
Friday night, Insider.com’s Mikey Glazer caught up with Twilight star Kellan Lutz at Audi’s Super Bowl party, where Emmett Cullen told us he loved The Hunger Games script and really wanted a role in the film — however, he was quickly informed by the Powers That Be there could not be any “crossover” between the two franchises.
It’s not completely clear if the “Powers That Be” are Summit or Lionsgate, and who knows if this separation of casts will hold now that Lionsgate owns Summit. But let us know what you think! Plus, what role could Kellan have filled in The Hunger Games? Cato?
Update: According to this Us Weekly article, Kellan wanted to play Gale in the movie.
