Kellan Lutz Marries Mandy Moore In ‘First Love, Then Marriage’

He may have lost the role of Conan the Barbarian to “Stargate Atlantis” actor Jason Momoa, but “Twilight” star Kellan Lutz has muscled his way into a new role in the romantic comedy “First Love, Then Marriage.”

According to, Kellan will play Mandy Moore’s husband in the rom-com, which also reportedly stars Blythe Danner (a.k.a. Gwyneth Paltrow’s mom) and Christopher Walken. The film centers around Mandy’s marriage counselor character, who after finding out her parents have separated, does all she can to bring them back together, to the detriment of her own new marriage.

The film is being directed by Dermot Mulroney, a man who knows a thing or two about romantic comedies having starred in the Julia Roberts-favorite “My Best Friend’s Wedding.”

This role marks Kellan’s first foray into the genre, so we’re curious to see how he fares. He’s stated on several occasions that he wants to be the next big action star, but a role like this is no doubt a great way to diversify his resume. Mandy, on the other hand, isn’t straying too far from her comfort zone having already played a newlywed in “License to Wed” and in real-life, marrying musician Ryan Adams in the spring of 2009.
