Tyler Hoechlin: Could've been Edward Cullen

Wow, thanks to archeather on the IMDB boards, we now know that Tyler Hoechlin was one of the mysterious finalists for the role of Edward. Tyler's trivia section cites the following:

"He was one of the final two being considered for the role of "Edward Cullen" in the film "Twilight", but lost out to Rob Pattinson."

Can you imagine Tyler as Edward? Then it would be his mug plastering all these Twilight fansites, not R-Patz's.

  2. Definitely not Edward. I can't believe he was among the finalists. He looks more like a Jacob. Of course I'm biased, because I love Rob, but this guy is definitely no Edward.

  5. Nope, not seeing it. Rob owns Edward. This guy would have been a decent Jacob though.

  8. I wish the Robert Pattinson fans would calm down a little. This guy is by no means unattractive, in fact quite the opposite. Just because you've become a huge fan of Rob's doesn't mean other male actors up for the part are unattractive.

  19. this guy is quite handsome actually but the role called for a good guy that could be bad and rob played it great. i feel in love with edward cullen in the books before watching the movie so i had edward pictured up in my mind where he lives now. i myself think rob looks hotter as edward i think he should keep the vampire look and i become his bella because she ain't beautiful enough with those bags under her eyes and stuff.

  20. omg thank god robert got it seriously hes far nicer ;)

  21. well i don't knoe about him being edward..

    but i think that he would have made a goodd asss jacob black..

    i mean considering the height and everything.. he fits the the role of jacob.. i think that they should go wit him for the next movie!

    but i also like the jacob noww.. i wish he was just taller.

  22. i think he look good enought to play a vampire .. i don't wannt to say that rob is the better edward its just another style ..
    what would you say if the roles were switched? ... if tyler would have been edward ? wouldn't you say exactly the same ?

  26. I love Tyler, I think he is a great actor and he would probably done a great job if he got the role as Edward. The only problem is that he doesn't look like Edward at all so I'm glad that they picked Robert.

  27. WOW....I hadn't even see that he was runner up to rob when I had seen his head shot and I thought WOW he looks like Edward! I see that there are alot of girls who disagree but everyone has to remember that we all pictured Edward differently. As long as Tyler does his "serious" face and not his quarky smile, he is totally my Edward!!!!!

  28. Idk who would be better for the part but Tyler hoechlin is way sexier then rob ..in my opinion

    ReplyDelete
  29. In my opinion, the only thing that makes Robert stand out as being cute is his eyes. Everything else is just another face. Tyler on the other hand is cute all across the board. Tyler is a very good actor. I believe he could have excelled and lived up to the part. Haters will be haters though. You go tyler!
