Henry Cavill Lost Out On Two Big Roles To Robert Pattinson


It’s been revealed that Henry Cavill lost out on two pretty big roles to the same British actor, Robert Pattinson, but can you guess which roles those were?

It was revealed that Henry Cavill ended up losing out on the role of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to Robert Pattinson.

Diggory played a pretty big part in The Goblet Of Fire.

However, that wasn’t the really big role that Henry Cavill ended up losing out on to Robert Pattinson.

The second role was, of course, that of Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga.

Interestingly enough, the writer of the books, Stephanie Meyer stated that Cavill had been her dream choice for the role many years previously.

She might have been convinced that Cavill would have been perfect for the role after having watched his performance as Albert Mondego in The Count of Monte Cristo or the awkward romantic Stephen Colley in I Capture the Castle.

However, when the time came to cast the role, Henry Cavill might have been a bit too physically imposing to play Edward.

Cavill ended up taking up a lot of minor roles in films such as Stardust and another movies called Hellraiser: Hellworld.

Cavill was then cast in the incredible drama The Tudors and then starred as the protagonist of Immortals.

That movie was pretty forgettable, however, it might have ended up helping him to get the role of Superman in Man Of Steel.
