4 of 26: Here's something to sink your teeth into: We could have seen Henry Cavill play Edward in 'Twilight,' but the role went to Robert Pattinson after Cavill was deemed too old for the part. For all of you 'twi-hard' fans, imagine if Kristen Stewart had not received the part of Bella, the role may have been played by Sara Paxton, who also auditioned.
