Fans have suggested another Twilight alum, Kellan Lutz, for the role of Elliot, Christian's brother. Lutz recently commented that he hadn't read the books. "I need to though," said the actor. "The fans saw similarities between Emmett and Elliot . . . I know Christian is the lead but that's why I didn't want to play Edward [Cullen, in Twilight]. He wasn't really like me. I'll trust the fans."
