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."
