Twilight star banned from The Hunger Games

Actor Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen in The Twilight Saga, has revealed that he was banned from auditioning for The Hunger Games.

Actor Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen in *The Twilight Saga*, has revealed that he was banned from auditioning for *The Hunger Games*.

While attending Audi's Super Bowl party over the weekend, the 26-year-old actor admitted that he loved the Hunger Games script and really wanted to audition, but was snubbed because of his role in Twilight.

Not cool, people! Not cool!

The boss peeps over at Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment reportedly banned any "crossover" between the two franchises — including their cast. What a bummer!

While we agree that the two movie franchises should be kept separate, we do reckon Kellan would have been perfect to play Finnick or Cato.

Agreed?
