Kellan Lutz goes from Vampire meathead to God

Mar. 22, 2010by: Niki Stephens

Many of you may not know Kellan Lutz. I know him as that other guy from the TWILIGHT saga that makes girls lose their shit when he takes his shirt off.

It's possible he'll get a chance to do some more chest baring with Mickey Rourke in WAR OF THE GODS. Lutz was recently cast as Poseidon, God of the Sea. Will his Poseidon be as good as Danny Huston's in CLASH OF THE TITANS? Ehhh...I'm going to say Huston will take that one.

The story is about a young warrior Theseus who leads his men into battle with the immortal Greek gods to defeat evil elder gods of the Titans in order to save mankind. Also starring with Rouke and Lutz will be Henry Cavill and Freida Pinto. Tarsem Singh (THE FALL) will be directing.

The guys actually done a few decent projects in his career: an episode of SIX FEET UNDER (if that counts), some episodes of GENERATION KILL, and next we will see him in the remake of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.

Extra Tidbit: Do you guys think that all TWILIGHT actors & actresses are "tainted"?

It's Tarsem...

... so it could be about paint drying and it'd still be the most visually impressive film the year it comes out, thus, I am all for this!

I still can't believe all the hate you guys are giving to a Tarsem/Rourke film. Plus Lutz is basically an unknown so I'm still rooting for him.

While i have no problem with Kellan Lutz (he is a hottie)He hasn't really done anything impressive, and I really don't envision Poseidon God of the Sea when I look at him... maybe Cupid or Hermes,definitely not one of the Top Three.

NONE of the male Twilight cast members are attractive to anyone over the age of 16 and/or with more than a dozen functioning brain cells. NOT A SINGLE ONE OF THEM. And the idea of this douchebag portraying a Greek god is hilarious.

What The Eff?

What's with the sudden interest with Greek mythology? This scares me for two reasons. One, casting choices are becoming shittier by the day. Two, they're going to set their sights on God Of War due to the success of the third game (which is a phenomenal piece of work that NO gamer should pass up on). I don't care who's cast as what in this movie, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that nobody EVER considers making God Of War into a movie because then a f**k-up is inevitable!

OK. Lutz looks like a douchebag.

Anna Kendrick can act while Ashley Greene looks sexy.

I'm yet to watch any of the Twilight movies. They just don't interest me, but I think they've done a great casting job. Kristin Stewart is the best actress of her generation. Dakota Fanning is up there and Anna Kendrick is an Oscar nominee. I haven't seen Pattinson in anything but I always felt Facinelli deserved some fame (I think he was seen as a poor man's Chris Evans) and lutz is solid in Generation Kill

Funny, considering Facinelli is what, ten or so years older than Chris Evans? So, yeah, maybe in his day he was the poor man's what we'd call Chris Evans.

I don't think Anna Kendrick is tainted. Also, what's with all of the God movies lately? It's like the new vampire craze or something.

I'm honestly surprised this dude wasn't in the running for Captain America.

But at least a Tarsem mythical-god movie should look cool. Hope it makes sense...

This film could be alright though. We'll see how it plays out.

Interesting choice for Poseidon. I still fondly remember when she got hosed down sans top by James Woods in Fast-Walking. Classic scene. Oh wait, that's Kay Lenz, nevermind. ;)

I think for the next 20-30 years we will see a new movie and think who is that actor in that one part and then look them up and realize that they had some kind of part in the Twilight saga.

This sounds fucking terrible.. like a cheaper version of Clash of the Titans.

In response to the extra tidbit I wouldn't say that they're tainted as much as they're just not good actors. Taylor Lautner will make girls swoon.. that's it. Pattinson is the same character in Remember Me and Kristen Stewart is pretty bland. The rest just seem like a bunch of models destined for soap opera fame.
