'Twilight' Actor ALMOST Loses Auditon After Arrest

"Twilight" actor Kiowa Gordon was on a road trip to L.A. for a big movie audition when he was arrested Monday morning -- and even though he missed the casting call ... sources say producers are willing to give him a second chance.

TMZ spoke with Kiowa's mom Camille -- nice lady -- who tells us Kiowa and his buddy were driving from Arizona to Hollywood so her son could try out for a non-Twilight movie on Monday afternoon.

As we previously reported, Kiowa's ride was pulled over for a routine registration check in Tempe -- and when the cop noticed there was an outstanding warrant out for Kiowa's arrest stemming from an incident in 2010, he was taken into custody.

But Kiowa MAY get a second chance at the movie -- because Hollywood sources tell us producers agreed to reschedule the audition after learning about Gordon's situation.

Kiowa was bailed out of jail Wednesday morning -- and we're told he'll once again attempt to travel to L.A. some time this week -- this time for a "Twilight" photo shoot.
