Matt Lanter talks Robert Pattinson

I'm actually quite looking forward to seeing Vampire's Suck... as long they didn't show all the good bits in the trailer.

Matt Lanter who plays "Edward" in the movie spoke to E! Online and People at the Teen Choice Awards.

It's a lot of pressure to walk in Robert Pattinson's footsteps as vampire heartthrob Edward Cullen, but somebody's got to do it.

Matt Lanter, the hunky actor who plays 90210's Liam Court, has stepped up to the plate to play Edward in the Twilight saga spoof, Vampires Suck.

But judging from Lanter's words, it sounds like the spoofed version will be a bit more racy than the original flicks. "I'm naked in the movie," the actor, 27, told PEOPLE at the Teen Choice Awards in L.A. on Sunday.

"We very closely follow the Twilight saga, so I think anything you might find cheesy about Twilight – which I know sounds really weird – we tackle that," Lanter says. "You know that famous 'I'm a killer' scene where [Pattinson] is talking about how he's a vampire? We make fun of that, but I pull out a gun and shoot. I'm actually a killer."

And even though Lanter says he hasn't discussed the spoof with Pattinson, he thinks the British superstar and his fans will give the film two thumbs up.

"It seems like [Pattinson]'s got a sense of humor," Lanter said. "We're adding to the Twilight saga in a fun, quirky way … We're paying homage. It's the greatest form of flattery."

It didn't suck to be a vampire at the Teen Choice Awards, but Vampires Suck star Matt Lanter was walking the carpet with one eye open.

The 90210 cutie who plays "Edward" in the Scary Movie-type spoof braved the awards on Sunday despite the fact there were many Twilight stars roaming around.

"I really hope I don't see Robert [Pattinson]," Matt joked to us on the carpet. But that wasn't what really made him nervous...

"I'm just kidding, Rob seems like a cool guy, I'm sure he'll laugh about [the film]. I've heard he has a sense of humor about it all."

So if it's not R.Pattz's hair that had Lanter a bit rattled, what was it?

"It was the Twilight fans, the Twi-hards, who I was really worried about," Matt said, with a smile that rivals Taylor Lautner's pearly whites, might we add. "But they seem to like it actually. I think the Twilight fans have a sense of humor, so it's making it that much more fun."

Lanter said they steered clear of Bon Temps where True Blood's bad-ass vamps reside and poked fun mainly at Stephenie Meyer's creation.
