Kellan Lutz: Hockey Game Conflict Explained
Kellan Lutz suits up in another sleek Calvin Klein ensemble at the Netflix premiere screening of Before I Forget at the Writers Guild Theater on Wednesday (January 13) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Josh Morin, CEO of the Peoria Rivermen hockey team, recently put the 24-year-old Twilight actor on blast for backing out twice on making an appearance at one of their games in Peoria, IL.
Kellan was committed to an October 23rd event, a JustJared.com source reveals, but his contract had a 30-day out (giving him up to 30 days prior to the event to cancel/reschedule). Production for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse kept getting pushed back and conflicted with that event, so Kellan’s agents rescheduled for a date in January (also with a 30-day out clause).
As for the second cancellation, Kellan was cast in a new film and the dates for that production conflicted with the rescheduled date in January. Seems like Kellan‘s agent was well within the 30-day out!
“Kellan was and is more than happy to come to Peoria,” the source reveals. “But the owner of the Riverman Hockey Team is the person who is saying no. Kellan even signed 100 autographs to send to the hockey team in time for the Jan. 23rd game.”
Mr. Lutz is currently up for the role of Conan The Barbarian.
