6'1" Kellan Christopher Lutz was born in 1985 in Dickinson, North Dakota.
Lutz modelled as a teenager and his first acting role was in a 2004 episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. His "big break" came in 2008 when he was cast in the Twilight film series.
Hercules was not Lutz' first sword and sandal outing. He played Poseidon in Tarsem Singh's Immortals (2011).
Lutz is now well-known as a Calvin Klein underwear model. He certainly has the body of a god even if he doesn't look remotely Greek.
