Kellan Lutz Premieres The Legend of Hercules!
Hunky Kellan Lutz stepped out in New York this week for the premiere of The Legend of Hercules. It doesn’t come out in the UK for a few months yet but we have all the photos and news!
Director Renny Harlin was also in attendance and happily posed with Kellan.
For anyone who may not know, The Legend of Hercules is the origin story of the the mythical Greek hero. Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom.
Speaking about the role, Kellan said:
‘As a young boy, I always had the dream of being Hercules. He’s the epic hero. He’s the original hero. For me, as I became an actor, that childhood dream could come to life.’
He also told of once auditioning for Thor and Captain America but knew that Hercules was the role for him.
‘With Hercules, I just knew it. I didn’t grow up loving Thor, or really knowing much about Thor or Captain America, but with Hercules, I did. I think (director) Renny [Harlin] saw my passion for it, and quite easily.’
As part of the promo for the new movie, Kellan phoned in to “On the Air with Ryan Seacrest” for a chat about the iconic role, check out the recording below!
