‘Twilight’ Actor Kellan Lutz: ‘I’d Love To Be Captain America’

Earlier today, we told you that “Chuck” star Zachary Levi wants a shot at bringing Captain America to the big screen, but he’s not the only angling to play Marvel’s star-spangled hero. You can add “Twilight” actor Kellan Lutz to the mix, too.

“I’d love to be ’Captain America’ someday,” Lutz told gossip blog The Dishrag in a post-“New Moon” interview.

Lutz, who played vampire Emmett Cullen in each of the “Twilight” films, would certainly be an unexpected choice for the role — but without any official casting for the film, it stands to reason that anyone’s fair game at the moment.

Back in September, we posted the results of a reader poll asking fans to choose which actor they’d like to see play super-soldier Steve Rogers, who becomes the red, white and blue Avenger known as Captain America. “Torchwood” and “Doctor Who” star John Barrowman edged out “True Blood” actor Alexander Skarsgard as the most popular choice for the role.

Of course, we provided our own list of actors we’d like to see as Captain America, too.
