Billy Burke to His Twilight Co-Stars: No Revolution for You!
Robert Pattinson, Billy Burke, and Kristen Stewart
Revolution has seen its fair share of great guest stars so far —Mark Pellegrino and Kim Raver, to name two — but there's an untapped source for the series to mine from: The Twilight cast!
Lest we forget, Billy Burke, who plays Miles Matheson on the NBC series, co-stars in the Twilight films as Bella Swan's (Kristen Stewart) father Charlie. With the final film being released this week, it seems only fitting to find out which of his co-stars he'd like to reunite with on his new NBC series.

Besides, plenty of the Twilight stars have TV experience already. Could Kellan Lutz, who just made a cameo on 30 Rock, play a deranged militia leader? Or maybe Taylor Lautner, who once co-starred on My Own Worst Enemy, could play a new ally of the resistance? We would love to see Elizabeth Reaser, of Grey's Anatomy and The Good Wife, come back to TV as Miles' love interest! But which co-star would Burke choose?
"It would just be weird if any of those actors showed up on this show," Burke admits. "I think it would be distracting. I love all of them, every single one of them to death, but to have even a cameo would just take you out of the show. So, my answer is: Sorry guys, I love you all, but none of you."

Still, following the success of the four-part Twilight film series, he doesn't think his co-workers will need the guest-starring gig. "I think they'll be alright," he says with a laugh. "They'll work."
