When the books began to be adapted to the big screen, you just knew some actors too good for Twilight were going to show up at some point. It always happens. Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich are in Eragon, Kate Winslet is in the Divergent movies, and Philip Seymour Hoffman is in the Hunger Games movies. Need some genuine acting clout to bolster the prestige of your YA movie adaptation? Get some overqualified actors in there!
This is why we look back on people like Michael Sheen, Bryce Dallas Howard, Lee Pace, and Anna Kendrick in the Twilight movies and just chuckle a bit. At least now-beloved actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were given a lot to do in their starring roles. Numerous fantastic thespians were given little, and sometimes nothing, to do throughout the five films. Scroll on down and give a thumbs up to those who are, simply put, too good for the vampiric franchise.
