Lutz was born in Dickinson, then lived in a few different places, and moved to California when he was a teen to be closer to his family and acting opportunities.
Lutz is scheduled to appear in Mott pending any unforeseen scheduling conflicts, said Tractor Fest Committee member Deb Marthaller.
“His publicist said the last time he did an event somewhere in about the size of our community they drew 600 people,” she said. “We have signed a contract but there are a couple of points we want clarified before we send the contract back, but he is definitely booked.”
She would not say what it will cost to get him here.
Some residents are excited about the opportunity to meet the actor.
“I am really excited,” said Kelsey Friedt, a high schooler from Mott. “I own the movie and the books and love them.”
While Friedt said she and many others have college orientations that day, she will try to make it back to see Lutz.
“I’m going to try really hard, but I’m going to Grand Forks, so I don’t know,” Friedt said. “All of my friends are obsessed with ‘Twilight’ and we’re so excited.”
The actor’s aunt, Sandi Strommen from Dickinson, said Lutz is a nice guy.
“He really likes to talk and visit with people,” Strommen said. “ I know he’s pretty busy this summer so I don’t know how he’ll make it back.”
Strommen said she hasn’t seen all of Lutz’s movies, but says it’s “pretty cool” to be able to watch him.
