Kellan Lutz already has the physique of a Greek god, so why not have him play one??
The hunky Twilight actor was recently cast to play Hercules in the upcoming Hercules 3D, and quite frankly we can't think of anyone better to play the super-buff hero!
Director Renny Harlin said they were thrilled to have Kellan aboard, but the decision was based on more than his bod:
"It takes more than a good physique to portray the most legendary, mythological personality in history — and Kellan has exactly that, personality."
We guess that's true, but it definitely doesn't hurt!! LOLz!
The film begins shooting in May and will be competing against Bill Ratner's Hercules: The Thracian Wars starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Talk about a tough choice!
Unfortunately the movie wont be out for quite a while since they haven't even began shooting yet, so we'll have to wait a little bit for our eye candy. But on the plus side, Kellan is also currently working on Tarzan AND Tatua, so there will be plenty of shirtless Emmett to come!
