“Twilight” stars back out of DragonCon

While browsing the official Dragon*Con website today, I noticed that previously confirmed guest Kellan Lutz (Emmett) has been removed from the guest list, due to “professional commitments”. This is a double whammy for Twi-hards, since Ashley Greene (Alice) was removed a few weeks ago for the same reasons. As of today, Chaske Spencer (Sam), Alex Meraz (Paul) and Daniel Cudmore (Felix) remain on the guest list.
