Kellan Lutz loves tackling his own stunts, but his agent was terrified when some knife action got out of hand on the set of his new movie The Killing Game.
He explained: “I loved doing stunts; I don't have tattoos and I always say that my scars and bruises are my tattoos. I just did this movie called The Killing Game and we had real machetes and my chest got cut up by accident. My agent was like, ‘That's your money maker! You can't ruin that!’ ”
Kellan is best known for playing Emmett Cullen in the Twilight Saga, but he was disappointed when he couldn't star with Sylvester Stallone in The Expendables because it clashed with his commitment to the vampire series.
He explained in an interview with website Dose.ca: “I love action movies, I want to work with Sylvester Stallone one day. I was supposed to work on his movie The Expendables.
“I auditioned for it and I got the role, but the scheduling didn't work out with New Moon. And I was just like, ‘What a bummer.’ It has seven of my favorite action stars. Jason Statham, jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture... it's such an all-star cast. If the name Kellan would have been up there with them, I would have died happy.”
