Are you guys hip to Kellan Lutz? You should be. He plays Edward Cullen‘s brother in the Twilight movies, and he is the douchiest douchebag to ever douche the earth. Are we all thinking about literally douching the earth now? I just want us to be together in this.
Ok, if you don’t care about Kellan Lutz, you will soon. Right after you read some highlights from this beautifully delusional interview:
On how he turned down Robert Pattinson’s role in Twilight: Yeah, I didn’t want to do it. I spent so much time filming in Africa, seven months, and that’s a long time to be away from your family and dogs. My agent wanted me to read for Edward and I read the script and thought that character was too depressing for me right now, I want to do something where I smile. I wanted to take a break from acting and I said that, I turned it down, I turned down the audition a couple of times. Ryan, my agent at the time really knew it was going to be a special project so he told me to read the role of Emmett, and I read it, it was only about four lines, but he was the big brother, the comedic relief and I fell in love with him. I said “Sure, I would love to play this type of role”. I auditioned, and long story short, here I am finishing the saga and Emmett is going to be in my heart forever.
On Twilight‘s crazy fans: I love the conventions that take me around the world, especially to the small cities and the small towns. To date, the most extreme one was the fan that brought handcuffs and wanted to handcuff me and bring me home. I was joking with her and said ‘Just lock me up and take me home’ and she yanks out some handcuffs and security had to step in. Now it is just amazing, I feel like the fans have matured with the books and the movies. It is still very extreme, but I feel like they are closer to us and that we are more human versus these characters. Now it is just fun hanging out with the fans. It is really fun to just meet them, if we are in the same location, just to hang out and talk over lunch, get a drink together, every one is really cool. I’m very fortunate to have such loving fans.
On roles he would enjoy: I would love to do He-man, he was a childhood favorite. I would love to play a superhero, Marvel or DC anything like that. I would have loved to do Captain America. I think Chris Evans was an amazing choice for it, and I can’t wait to see the movie. I would love to be someone that I grew up loving. Flash, Aquaman, Jonny Quest I loved. You know, I would love to play a Ninja Turtle or something like that, Michelangelo.
On people he would like to work with: Robert Redford, big time. I just think he’s a stud. Scorsese would be amazing! I’d love to do something with Leo [DiCaprio] and him. I’ve also wanted to play like a brother role to Matt Damon or Leo or something along those lines. I think it would be really fun and trivial. Bruce Willis would also be fun, I would love to be a part of the Die Hard movies.
You know, I don’t think I ask you guys for a lot, I really don’t, so please, if you could just do this one thing for me … please give me your consent to cover Kellan Lutz more. He’s so silly and so confused and, um, I guess he’d be attractive to some people. So can we just enjoy Kellan Lutz officially now, pretty please?
