Does anybody even know who Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz are? They are actors who were in the Twilight movies as support characters, but if you asked me (or anybody who is not a 17 year old highschooler) which ones they were, I couldn’t give you a proper answer to save my life.
The sad thing is that they’re bickering over much they’ll be paid to be in the last movies in the Twilight saga, like you couldn’t find a dozen actors like them under every rock in Hollywood. The Hollywood Reporter tells us:
“We may have a situation where one of them is thrown out on the street to make a point,” says a source close to the dealmaking.
So are we headed for a recasting on the final “Twilight”?
There is precedent for such a tactic. After the success of the first film, Summit axed Rachelle Lefevre, who played Victoria, in part because her reps played hardball on money and scheduling. (Bryce Dallas Howard got the job instead.) Now, two films into the series, even the minor Twilighters (Lutz in particular) have become sought-after stars, so it makes sense they’d want to be paid more for the final film. But we’re told that the offers from Summit — which are said to be at least 10 times what the actors made on the first movie — were deemed “offensive” given the mega-money the franchise has generated.
