What Would 'Twilight' Have Been Like With This Alternate Cast?

Welcome to the latest instalment in our ‘Alternate Movie Cast’ series! Last time we invited you to think about what the Harry Potter films would have been like if other actors who had auditioned for the roles had won them instead of the cast that we’ve come to know and love. This time, we’re taking a look at actors and actresses who auditioned for roles in the movie adaptions of Stephanie Meyers’ Twilight series. Obviously the coveted roles of Edward and Bella went to Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart and, as we all know, the dramatic romance that ensued offscreen between R-Pattz and K-Stew was almost as intense as the one onscreen. We wouldn’t have had it any other way, but imagine if these other celebs had won out instead of the tumultuous indie pair.

Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart are often compared to one another as both are young Hollywood actresses around the same age. However, did you know that J-Law is a huge Twilight fan and did in fact audition for the role of Bella Swan? Jen admitted “I love the ‘Twilight’ books. I’m not even ashamed to say it, they are like methamphetamine to me. So when I heard Kristen Stewart say, “I only read the first one”, I was like, “Oh man,” because she wasn’t a huge fan of the books”. We’re sure that Twi-hard Jennifer was pretty upset at the time, but she’s since gone on to star as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games as well as winning an Oscar for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook. We think she’s probably recovered from the blow of losing out on the role of Bella.

James Franco’s equally handsome little brother, Dave Franco, auditioned for the role of Edward Cullen, but lost out to R-Pattz. Dave may be conventionally good looking but perhaps producers thought he lacked the brooding intensity that real life musician and tortured soul, Rob Pattinson, brought to the role.

Ben Barnes AKA Prince Caspian from Chronicles of Narnia was said to have auditioned for the role of super scary Volturi leader, Aro. Michael Sheen nabbed the role and certainly added a suitable touch of sinister, do you think Ben would have been able to have been quite as menacing as Sheen?

High School Musical star and Zac Efron ex, Vanessa Hudgens, went for the part of sulky Leah Clearwater. Vanessa even had the added advantage of being friends with Ashley Greene, a main cast member, but Vanessa supposedly wasn’t keen when she heard that Leah doesn’t appear until the third installment of The Twilight Saga films. The role eventually went to Julia Jones who has the bad ass routine down a little more than Hudgens.

What do you think, could Vanessa have toughed up for the role? Do you think that producers made the right decisions when they cast the Twilight films?
