Kellan the Barbarian


I'd not been paying much attention to the rumours about Kellan being cast in the remake of Conan - much like SpideyPatz (ummm, no!) - but apparently these are true:

"It's something that I've been actively going after because I'd die to put the weight back on," he told us at last night's Division-E party at Lisa Kline in L.A. "I'm tired of playing young; I want to be the big guy that I was."

Just how close is he to winning the role? "I've been auditioning," Kellan, 24, said. "They're finalizing so they're trying to figure out what happens next. I've been waiting for a while, doing screen tests. There are just so many cooks in the kitchen. If it happens, it happens…Regardless, it's not gonna be the new Arnold Schwarzenegger type of movie, no one's going to try and play that role. I think they're going younger, a different type of story. I'm just excited, because the script is great."

The boy just can't keep his shirt on - no complaints here :)

Via E! thanks Irene

  1. Good for him!! I have heard him say in numerous interviews he wants to play action/adventure type character in movies. (like matt Damon in the jason bourne series) I hope he can branch out and get the parts he's looking for from the success of Twilight. cuz he's a decent actor and HOTTT!!

  2. I love him and all, but I stll want Daniel Cudmore for the role.

  3. @ KristyRose - Daniel would be a good choice too.

  4. Ohhh I was all about Kellan, but Daniel Cudmore would be an intriguing choice! Love him too. Also that dude from the SciFi channel is pretty hot, though. He kinda looks the most right for the part.
