In fact, Cavill was Twilight author Stephanie Meyer’s first choice for the role of Edward. Over the last few years, Cavill has been one of Hollywood’s biggest untold secrets. The young British actor has been a heartbeat away from landing several other blockbuster lead roles: Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins, James Bond in Casino Royale, and Clark Kent in Superman Returns. As a result of all this adversity, the December 2005 issue of Empire Magazine appropriately dubbed Cavill “the most unlucky man in Hollywood.” He was able to land a starring role in the hit television series The Tudors, so his luck hasn’t been all bad. Check out his biography on his fan site or this interview with Movie Fone to learn more about him.
