matt lanter easy a premiere gi '90210's' Matt Lanter not 'hauntingly beautiful enough' for 'Twilight'Back in August, “90210’s” Matt Lanter talked to Zap2it about the “Twilight”-parody film “Vampires Suck,” in which he played Edward Sullen, an exaggerated take-off on Robert Pattinson‘s Edward Cullen.

“A lot of our scenes are kind of ripped right out of ‘Twilight’ in just these funnier, quirkier, wacky situations,” Lanter told us. “So, ‘Twilight’ fans are the ones who will actually get the jokes.”

What he failed to mention — and which adds a whole other layer to his “Vampire Suck’s” performance — is that he actually auditioned for the role of Edward in the “Twilight” franchise.

Brill Bundy has spent her entire career covering TV and pop culture. This is what happens when your parents try and limit your viewing habits to three shows a week. Likes: seasons with no more than 13 episodes, anti-heroes and binge-watching. Dislikes: when cartoon characters make out, when TV shows name check their titles, drawn out premieres and finales. TV words to live by: "If every porkchop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs."
