Immortals Set Visit: The Interview with Kellan Lutz

Here’s an interview with Kellan Lutz, found at

Kellan Lutz – Poseidon

Q: Can you tell us about the casting process and why you wanted to be cast?
 I read the script of this a while ago and I loved it, fell in love with it. At first auditioned for Ares, which I loved… they liked what I did, but they viewed Ares as taller, skinnier and more youthful, so I was really bummed because they didn’t really release all the characters for this movie and then I was like, ‘Okay, how about young Zeus?’ But then they had rumored that Alex Skarsgård and his father were going to do young Zeus and older Zeus, so I was just really bummed. I wanted to play someone in this movie. I love mythology, grew up loving it. I’m a middle kid, big family, that’s the thing you did in the farm country. [Laughs] I lived in Iowa, I loved mythology. I don’t know, we’re like that. But I also love Poseidon and I’m a Pieces, March 15th is my birthday, I love to swim, I competed in swimming, I swim in my backyard as much as I can when I’m back home and again, I never saw the role of Poseidon in here. So then they called back saying that I couldn’t do young Zeus and then they offered me Poseidon and I’m like, “What? Where’s Poseidon? Yeah! For sure!”

Q: Do you see this movie as a step up for you or a challenge to get out of “The Twilight Saga”?
 I’m very blessed with “The Saga” because I am a character that, yeah, people ask why I don’t have as many lines as everyone else. Well, I can’t change the books so my character’s more of a presence. Even in “Eclipse,” I have more action and fighting scenes than I do dialogue. I can’t help that. I’m very fortunate and blessed that it still pushes my career up to the level where I’m not the face of the books, so I’m still, like floating, so the next thing I do, like the other independent movies I do and I’m very choosy with like “The Killing Game” is my own type of underground “Gladiator”/Jason Bourne type of movie. That’s what I want to do so being a part of these huge commercial movies like “Twilight” opens up doors so I can be the star of other movies and really show my acting chops, show and pick what I want to do as an actor kind of molded my career.

Q: With the very first “Twilight,” you knew sequel potential existed. Sometimes these big movies come out and they’re a success and then everyone scrambles to figure out how to make the sequel. Is there a sense of that on this set?
 This movie is different than any movie you guys will ever see because it’s not based on a book, it’s based on a really original idea, concept, mixing mythology, creating a story out of its own. It doesn’t have to follow any guidelines. That’s the beauty of it. What you’ll see in the beginning of this movie and what it transforms into as far as the story of Theseus and then what it ends on, kind of reflects back to the beginning and takes you on another journey of who might this new hero be. And then as you see with the epic battle with us Gods at the end, you guys are all here as we’re shooting – again, these are big movies and you always look to capitalize on sequels, third movies.

From day one when Tarsem showed us what he saw of each set, he built little models and I loved those 3D puzzles growing up… what he made with these models, I felt like a little boy again. I wanted to go play with my toys. And seeing these blown up, in here like we’re shooting with the Titan’s tomb, it’s so surreal again because it’s exactly how I saw it times ten and he can just create anything. And with the end of this movie it’s going to make you be like, ‘Wow, I just want to see where this next story goes.’



InStyle Hair’s Cover Girl Is… Ashley Greene!

Here’s a small article on Ashley Greene, found at

Ashley Greene

Twilight star Ashley Greene changed her hair many times since first emerging in the Hollywood scene, but as the cover girl of our new special issue InStyle Hair, she insists she’s still low maintenance at heart. “I love having my hair and makeup done, but I’m really just a 15-minute girl, throwing everything on with no fuss,” the 24-year-old actress and mark Brand Ambassador tells us. “That said, I do color and change my hair all the time!” And her willingness to play around with her look helps her when she transforms from mortal to vampire Alice Cullen on the set of Twilight. “The whole process takes about two hours,” Greene says of her otherworldly makeover. “My hair is pretty thick, and we wrap it and put it under a wig. To get it to fit so I don’t like look I have an alien head is a talent in itself. ” The next installment of the franchise, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 opens November 18th. For more of our exclusive interview with Greene, pick up the special issue of InStyle Hair, on newsstands Friday.

Ashley Greene “This is from Twilight,” Greene explains of her 2008 look. “My wig has gone through three changes since then. The newest is a classic Audrey Hepburn cut.”

Ashley Greene “I did this hair myself,” Greene explains of this casual updo in 2008. “It was probably dirty, and I just threw on a headband.”

 She pulled her hair back in a half updo with a feather hair accessory for Halloween in Las Vegas in 2009. “I was wearing a handmade peacock outfit and I wanted to crazy with the theme. Had to do a feather hair clip.”

Ashley Greene “My hair had been long forever, so I finally cut it,” says Greene of her bob in 2009. “It was nice for about four months, but then I wanted my long hair back!”

 While promoting Twilight in 2010, the actress wore a loose, messy side braid. “Funny story: Kristen [Stewart] wore a side braid a few days after this, and, of course, they compared us in weekly magazines.”

 Greene switched to a darker hue last November.

NextMovie: What 2011 Has in Store for ‘The Twilight Saga’ Cast

Here’s an article on the Twilight cast, found at

Breaking Dawn 220KristenStewart NextMovie: What 2011 Has in Store for ‘The Twilight Saga’ Cast anna kendrick

Next Movie has put together a list of some of our Twilight cast on their 2011 upcoming projects!

Wondering what’s in store for “The Twilight Saga” cast this year? Thankfully, we know they’re all currently shooting “Breaking Dawn” and “Part 1″ will be released on November 18. But since that’s like – I don’t know – 5,000 days away (not exact math), I’m sure I’m not the only one curious to know what other projects our favorite young actors have hitting our local cineplexes this year.

Kristen Stewart

In 2011, Stewart will continue to grace low-budget features with her million-dollar pout.

Francis Ford Coppola, after owning the movie rights to Jack Kerouac’s “On The Road” for 31 years, is finally producing an adaptation with Sam Riley as the main character Sal Paradise and Garrett Hedlund (“TRON: Legacy”) as his party-crazed cohort Dean Moriarty. Stewart is playing Moriarty’s first wife Mary Lou, who is a partier, openly flirtatious and sexually devious (natch). When her husband abandons her, she sleeps with one or two or nine sailors to get even. (This one doesn’t have a release date yet, but we’re hoping it makes its way to theaters as planned in ’11.)

In addition, Stewart and her mother are still trying to get funding for “K-11.” Called one of the strangest projects in Hollywood, KStew would play a male-to-female transsexual prisoner with autism and Mama KStew would make her directing debut. All I’m saying is, if playing a male-to-female transsexual prisoner with autism doesn’t win Stewart an Oscar, I don’t know what would.

You can tell from Pattinson’s movie choices that he wants fans to love his brain, not just his looks. Watch out Rob, it took Brad Pitt years to be taken seriously. Pattinson has played a seriously gay Salvador Dali in “Little Ashes” and the seriously dramatic Tyler Hawkins in “Remember Me.” Now he’s slated for two period dramas in 2011. “Water for Elephants” will open on April 22, and casts Pattinson alongside Academy Award winners Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz. Hopefully his acting chops are strong enough to stack up against them, and also the elephant.

The other film is called “Bel Ami,” and no it’s not affiliated with the gay porno company of the same name (in case you were wondering). It’s based on French author Guy de Maupassant’s second novel, published in 1885, and stars Pattinson as a young Parisian climbing to power by manipulating the city’s wealthiest women. “Bel Ami” doesn’t yet have a release date, but you can be sure they’ll be some intensely dramatic love scenes with he and co-stars Christina Ricci and Uma Thurman. Or so a guy can dream

Breaking Dawn Taylor Lautner Abduction220 280x205 NextMovie: What 2011 Has in Store for ‘The Twilight Saga’ Cast anna kendrickTaylor Lautner

This year Lautner will flex more of his famous muscles as the star of “Abduction,” scheduled for a September 23 release. The thriller, which is described as “Bourne-like,” follows Nathan Harper (Lautner) as he tries to find the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website. Of course, the truth doesn’t end up being at all easy, and Harper must punch, and kick, and drive his motorcycle really fast away from shadowy government figures. His hardcore fans can only hope he still gets really hot and has to take his shirt off.

Bryce Dallas Howard and Anna Kendrick

These ladies couldn’t be further away from each other in the “Twilight” storyline, but they’re teaming up in 2011 for “Live With It.” Also starring Joseph-Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anjelica Huston, the movie is a black comedy about 27-year-old guy who’s diagnosed with cancer. It’s from director Jonathan Levine, who made the sublimely funny  and not-wack-at-all “The Wackness.”

Jackson Rathbone

The man who plays Jasper Hale will get into full art-house mode starring in this year’s “DaZe: Vol. Too (sic) – NonSeNse.” Also featuring Gary Busey and recently-deceased Andrew Koening (Boner from “Growing Pains”), the trailer looks like Andy Warhol rose for the dead to make one last feature. Rathbone will also star in “Zombie Hamlet,” which promises to mix Shakespeare, a movie within a movie, and of course, zombies.

Breaking Dawn lolmileyashley 280x205 NextMovie: What 2011 Has in Store for ‘The Twilight Saga’ Cast anna kendrickAshley Greene

By looking at 2010′s upcoming projects, you may think Greene is the biggest star here. She’s in FIVE different movies that should all be released this year, not including “Breaking Dawn.” “Skateland,” “Butter,” “LOL,” “A Warrior’s Heart” and “The Apparition” don’t look like they’ll be the biggest blockbusters, but she stars in all of them. “LOL” is probably the most notable, because she appears alongside teen queen Miley Cyrus — but isn’t that like cheating on “Twilight”?

Kellan Lutz

This beefy actor also has four other films in the works this year, including “A Warrior’s Heart” with Greene. Going heavy on ACTION, Lutz appears in “The Killing Game” with Samuel L. Jackson and “Immortals” with Mickey Rourke (in which he plays Poseidon!) while also lending his voice to the animated “Guardians of Luna.”

Nikki Reed

Since dropping out of “K-11,” Reed’s main project is potential blockbuster “Catch .44″ with Bruce Willis, Malin Akerman and Forest Whitaker. The thriller promises a psychopathic hit man, a grizzly trucker, and a delusional line cook, so I’m already there.

What a great year 2011 will be!!

Top 5 Twilight Characters That’s Not The Trio

Here’s an article on Twilight characters, found at

twilight eclipse

When I watched The Twilight Saga: Eclipse again after it came out on DVD, it hit me that almost all of my favorite scenes in the film series to-date involved characters OTHER than the three love-triangle leads. So I think it’s time to give a shout-out to the unsung heroes of theTwilight phenomenon.

Here’s who I consider to be the five best characters in the world of Forks (OK, six — ’cause there’s a tie for fifth place):

5. TIE! Mike Newton and Jessica Stanley – Bella’s friends provided the comic relief that was sorely needed in the first adaptation — and we all know that Anna Kendrick (Jessica) went on to make quite a name for herself in Up in the Air. I’m hoping for that same kind of break-out for Michael Welsh (Mike), whose illness during the “Face Punch” scene in New Moon totally stole the show (and, to me, was the second-best part about that movie… read on for the best). I sincerely hope we see a lot more of both Jessica and Mike in Breaking Dawn.

4. Aro – Michael Sheen as the leader of The Volturi was, hands down, the best thing about New Moon, don’t you agree? That’s why I was really bummed that we weren’t treated to another performance from him in Eclipse. For those of you seeing TRON: Legacy this weekend, tell me if you don’t detect a bit of Aro-ness in Sheen’s catty Castor.

3. Rosalie Hale – It’s funny, because in the books I adored Alice Cullen, but I can’t stand her in the films. Conversely, I thought Rosalie was a whiny brat in the novels, but she very much grew on me in the movies — especially in Eclipse. Her heart-to-heart talk with Bella about the life she’ll be giving up to become a vampire — and that crazy Vengeful Bride flashback! — were highlights of the third film.


2. Billy Black – Played with quiet confidence by Gil Birmingham, Billy (Jacob’s father) provides a calming presence for the lovesick, hormone-ravaged teenagers surrounding him. Youbelieve that this guy’s seen it all… and that he fears for what will become of his tribe now that “the cold ones” have returned to their area. And you also know that he probably wishes he could smack Bella for how she treats Jacob!

1. Charlie Swan – For me, if they didn’t get Charlie right in the films, the entire franchise was going to be a lost cause.  That’s why I was so pleased when I saw how Billy Burke embodied all that I had envisioned for Charlie when I read the books. He’s the protective dad (with good reason), he’s the stoic cop, and — along with Jacob — he’s the biggest reason Bella has to second-guess her desire to join the undead.

Who would’ve made your Top 5? Let me hear it!
