A few months ago we filled you Twilight fans in on the big charity baseball game featuring your favorite Hollywood vamps, but it looks like there has been a big change in the lineup.
Recent reports say that Twilight’s Peter Facinelli, who plays the sexy vampire father figure in the series, will no longer be part of the big game. Sorry Twilight fans, but Nelsan Ellis, the amazing man that plays the fabulous fry cook, Lafayette, in True Blood, has taken Peter’s place in the charity Vampire Baseball game in New Orleans on Saturday, March 20.
Facinelli, who plays Dr. Carlisle Cullen, was originally signed on, but he’s no longer on the roster. But don’t worry guys, you still have the wolf pack playing in the game – Chaske Spencer who plays alpha-wolf Sam, Alex Meraz who plays Paul and Tyson Houseman who plays Quil. Daniel Cudmore, who plays Felix, is the only vampire left though. So really, it’s turning into more of a werewolf charity than a vampire one.
While this news may bum out the Twilight lovers, especially the ones that already bought their tickets, this is awesome news for the True Blood fans out there. We get to see one of our favorite characters do a good thing for people that really need help. Kudos Nelsan Ellis.
