Other film credits include "The Osiris Child" and "Extraction."

In the independent film "Experimenter," which debuted at Sundance in 2015, Lutz played a young William Shatner. Also, Lutz starred in "The Legend of Hercules."

Additionally, Lutz appeared in "Syrup," based on the Max Barry book Java Heat, in which he starred opposite Mickey Rourke, and his first foray in animated films as the title character in the film "Tarzan."

Lutz appeared in the remake of the 1984 horror classic "A Nightmare on Elm Street" for director Samuel Bayer, followed by "Meskada," for director Josh Sternfeld, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Also, Lutz starred in "Prom Night" and the independent films "Deep Winter" and "The Tribe."

Lutz started his acting career as a series regular on "The Comeback," right before appearing in the feature films "Stick It" and "Accepted."

His additional television credits include starring in the mini-series "Generation Kill," a recurring role in the series "90210" and guest starring roles on "Heroes" and "Summerland." Kellan Lutz plays Kenny Crosby in "FBI: Most Wanted."

Born and raised in North Dakota, Lutz kept busy by playing games at the local arcade, going to the bowling alley, hunting and sledding. Lutz insists on living life like an adventure, enjoying sky diving, parasailing, motor cross and white-water rafting, believing one should "try new things, you only live once."

Lutz has patented two inventions, including an exercise device that uses air resistance to perform the exercises, and is waiting for the prototype to be created.

Lutz is the middle child of six brothers and one sister. Currently, he resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Brittany Gonzalez-Lutz, and their dog, Koda.

His birthday is March 15. Follow him on Twitter and Instagram @kellanlutz.
