Kellan Lutz dished on everything from his dream role to his favorite memory from Twilight when he chatted with Us Weekly Video on Wednesday, September 7, in the video above.
The hunk, 31, told Us that he’s dying to play comic-book and ‘80s cartoon character He-Man in the upcoming movie remake of 1987’s Masters of the Universe. The original film starred Dolph Lundgren as the buff hero of Eternia.
“DeVon Franklin, he's a producer over at Sony, he’s an amazing man, and he let me know that they’re creating The Masters of the Universe a couple years ago and I was thinking that would really top off every dream I’ve had in the industry,” the Hercules actor told Us of his dream role. “I met with McG, who is the director of it, [and] they’re working on the script and I’m just kind of playing with it. … So hopefully when they finish the script I have a chance to audition for it.”
Lutz has been campaigning for the role for a while now. In June, the actor tweeted about his meeting with McG, teasing fans about the film and his potential role.
The star, who played buff vampire Emmett Cullen alongside stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in the hit Twilight franchise, also reminisced with Us about his favorite memory from the film series.
“My favorite memory is … [when] we didn’t know what we were a part of,” Lutz said. “It was just very organic, very authentic for us as a cast.”
The supernatural romance series — which consisted of five films — also starred Taylor Lautner, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, Anna Kendrick and others, and launched the actors to fame.
