Twilight star Kellan Lutz has action star ambitions


15 November 2011

Kellan Lutz who is best known as Emmett Cullen in the hugely popular franchise The Twilight Saga and returns to cinemas this Friday when he reprises his role in the penultimate entry in the vampire franchise has revealed his ultimate ambition is to become an action film star.

Lutz, who can currently be seen as Poseidon in Tarsem Singh's Immortals told Access Hollywood said that he hopes to follow in the footsteps of previous action film icons like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone "I love action movies. That's really where I want to spearhead my career."

Lutz reminisced about a pivotal action scene for Immortals adding "We were doing the epic battle scene at the very end [of Immortals], a long five-minute fight, but I was grinning ear to ear! They were like, 'Kellan you're a God, you're about to kick ass, you can't be smiling so much'.
I really had to work on not smiling. Then they would push in for a close up and would say, 'Kellan, you are smiling with your eyes…' I was like, 'What does that even mean?'"

Lutz is currently filming his role in Stephen Herek's Bumped with Camilla Belle and his A Nightmare on Elm Street co-star Katie Cassidy as well as lending his voice to Carson Stone in Guardians of Luna and Jake Travers in crime drama Java Heat from Conor Allyn.
