2. Tyler Hoechlin turned down Twilight


This dreamboat was this close to playing an immortal vampire in the Twilight film franchise. But at the time Hoechlin was in college playing baseball. He loved the sport so much he turned down all roles offered to him at the time to concentrate on playing for his team and getting a proper education. Emmett ended up being played by Kellan Lutz, and Tyler went on to be a bruting werewolf instead on Teen Wolf.
