    In a recent interview with Collider.com, actor Kellen Lutz spoke with Steve 'Frosty' Weintraub about his desire to play He-Man in the upcoming Masters of the Universe film.

    One of the roles that I know they’ll eventually gonna make a live action movie is He-Man, Masters of the Universe. I’ve heard your name involved with that. Is that a role that you’ve gone after or has anyone ever talked to you about it?

    LUTZ: Someone asked if I got offered the role He-Man because they saw something online. I don’t know where they make up all these stories that I said that I got offered or whatever, this is bullshit. For me, I love He-Man, growing up that was my world—playing pretend outside on the farm with the animals. So, I was obsessed with The Jungle Book and Tarzan and He-Man, and Hercules. Those guys were iconic to me and it’s been a blessing and I’ve been so grateful to make goals as an actor. I think it’s very important to know what you want to do next versus just leave it up to chance, really position yourself in the right footings to get to where you want to be. That’s what we did in these last couple years with Tarzan and doing the motion-capture one for Constantin [Film Produktion] which it was such a dream to be a part of that—in an animated movie. Also Hercules, and I really positioned myself with—I’m obsessed with mythology and Hercules, then that one came around. For me, it would be a dream. It would be that trifecta for myself to get He-Man, which is like top dog for me. “The Power of Grayskull,??? that would be a childhood dream come true again and of course I am doing what I need to do and not to do. You have to say no to some projects that might compete with your chances of working and doing that movie. I would definitely love to throw my hat in that ring, there’s a lot of actors who could definitely portray and bring He-Man to the big screen. It’d be cool but I think they’re still working on the script and it’s early stages.

    I can definitely see you playing that role and you’re in the right age-range to do it.

    LUTZ: Thank you, I’d love to do it. It’s actually kind of funny working with Dolph Lundgren, who played him, and I chatted with him. He hated the skirt that he had to wear, little underwear piece, he’s like, “Just get ready. That was the worst part, standing there in the snow wearing close to nothing and freezing your balls off.??? I’m like, “Duly noted. Good to know.???

    Kellen Lutz can't open an envelope, much less a movie. He is not a solid foundation for any kind of franchise at this point in his career.

      You know, there's a lot more to a movie that who gets to play the main character.

      No you aren't. You're just mad that I made the fact-based observation that this dude does not (or cannot) rep. Get over it.

        Huh? Seems a bit harsh. I don't even know who this guy is.

      I'm open to see how Kellen Lutz would do as He-Man. Most of the films he did in his youth have been teen stuff like theTwilight films, so its hard for some of us to gauge how he would perform as He-Man in an action film. I think Expendables 3 will be the real test to see how he does as an action star.

      The trailer for Expendables 3 just came out today. Not too much Kellen Lutz in the trailer, but there is a bit of action with him:

        Yeah, no. An ensemble piece is not a good gauge of any one actor's bona fides. That's ridiculous. I'm gonna have to point out - again - that the film he headlined is the best measure of his box office appeal. And it bombed. I'm sorry that that is apparently difficult to accept.

        Look, I am not trying to hurt anyone's feelings, but do you really want to risk damaging the brand right out of the gate? Have you forgotten how the ill-casting of Green Lantern sent both the franchise and Ryan Reynold's career into a tailspin?

            Well, someone who is most likely Caucasian or light-skinned, at least 6' 4" and HUGE/Ripped and can act his way out of a paper bag. Just go to a gym in the Netherlands and there will probably be like 5 to choose from.

            I think that the height is the MOST important factor, like with Dolph. Too bad Chris Hemsworth played Thor, he would probably be one of the better choices (His acting in "Snow White and the Woodsman" was pretty bad though).

            Batista is the size, height and build that I picture for He-man.
            Old School Lee Priest circa 2001 was a real life He-Man.
            Roland Kickinger - the bodybuilder who played a young Arnold in Terminator Salvation.

              I think Chris' brother Liam Hemsworth would make a good He-Man. Liam is actually taller than his older brother, and with the right trainer could get just as big as Chris.

              Whomever they pick, let's just hope they get both the costumes and Skeletor right. I didn't really like either in the '87 film, nothing against Frank Langella. In this modern age, there's simply no excuse to to get lax on the details.
