There is never a dull moment in the world of “Twilight.” The fact that we dedicated fans still have a few months to wait before the release of “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” does not mean that our favorite subject and the actors associated with it are not making headlines elsewhere.
This week’s “Twilight” Tuesday is dedicated to our favorite bits of “Twilight” news percolating around the Internets:
“Breaking Dawn – Part 2” To Open Comic-Con
As was expected, Summit announced that “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” will once again take San Diego Comic-Con by storm. The film will kick off the festivities in the convention center’s massive Hall H as the very first panel on Thursday, July 12. As many of us remember fondly, Hall H was the site of the franchise’s first-ever Comic-Con appearance back in 2008, when thousands of excited fans made the pilgrimage to San Diego to see the cast assembled together for the first time. No word yet on which castmembers will be making the trip to the Con, but because it’s in support of their last “Twilight” movie, we’re betting on seeing most, if not all, of our favorites.
Kellan Lutz Gets Animated
Kellan Lutz is lending his voice to Seth MacFarlane and the cast of “Family Guy.” According to Entertainment Weekly, Lutz will appear on an upcoming episode as a love interest for Meg Griffin (voiced by Mila Kunis) as a hunky high school football player Meg fantasizes about. The show’s executive producer Mark Hentemann told EW that although Meg convinces him to go on a date with her, Lutz’s character has ulterior motives — an interest in one of the other Griffins. Lutz reportedly made a great impression on everyone when he recorded his part. “[He] got into the role and walked that line perfectly,” Hentemann said. “He was great. He was very handsome.”
