Kellan Lutz talks Emmett, almost not auditioning, and how he would love to do 10 Twilights

Kellan Lutz talks Emmett, almost not auditioning cause Edward was too depressing, and how he would love to do 10 Twilights in the latest issue of YRB:

Even though there’s no hesitation when he declares that Emmett Cullen is the closest character he’s played to the real life Kellan Lutz, the actor
admits that his most noted role to date almost didn’t happen. Back when
he was filming HBO’s Generation Kill in Africa, Lutz had the Twilight
script thrown his way for consideration of the lead, Edward Cullen. Not
feeling he was in the right mindset at the time to play another
depressing role so soon, and being unfamiliar with the book series that
preceded the films, there was no problem turning down the auditions. But
a persistent agent and a quick look into Emmett’s personality and Lutz
felt the connection.

“It’s one of those things where I look at Emmett and I see me. I just see this jovial person, and he can be the protector, and I was with my family
growing up. I have a lot of brothers, so you gotta stand up for your
family. But, then again, I don’t let a lot of stuff faze me; I don’t
like being stressed out in life I don’t think I would have played a
great Edward. I think what Rob [Pattinson] does with it is mind-blowing.
They need someone like Rob to really give Edward so many layers without
doing much. And I love my character to death. I would never want to
give up Emmett – it doesn’t matter how many lines, it doesn’t matter if
I’m number one on the call sheet – I love him to death, and I’d play him
for 10 more movies.”

Unfortunately for all the diehard Twilight fans – and we know there’s a multitude of them – there won’t be 10 more movies. Even with the success of the books, it was hard for the cast of
the adapted films to know where they would come out in all this. “I
don’t think any of us knew [how big this would be],” Lutz acknowledges.
“We all kind of crossed our fingers and hoped for the best because
everyone wants to be a part of a franchise.” It would be hard to get any
better reaction than what they’ve received, and, for this vampire at
least, the fanatical fans are nothing to shy away from.

See the photoshoot oh la la.

I love Kellan & think he's PERFECT for Emmett so I'm glad he didn't go for Edward. I wish there would be more movies after BD.
