Sundance 2015
Kellan Lutz, who is known for action movies, decided to work on the independent film Experimenter. The star told RumorFix  at Sundance that he loved the experience working with Peter Sarsgaard. He revealed, "I do not do independent movies, so much, I do a lot of action movies, and I wanted to switch it up and work with great directors and actors. "Experimenter -- I worked with Peter Saarsgard and he is brilliant playing Stanley Milgram -- the story that Milgram worked with electrotherapy is very controversial and now to do a semi-movie about the movie. "I play William Shatner the professor in the movie and I watched his movie I think the, Tenth Level, when I was filming and I tried to emulate his style of acting but seeing how he was in the movie really helped me with my homework." Kellan's new movie tells the story of famed social psychologist, Stanley Milgram, who in 1961 conducted a series of radical behavior experiments that tested ordinary humans willingness to obey authority. But it has not been all work for Kellan as he has managed to squeeze in some snowboarding too through working with the Find The Grind Foundation he helped some children with disabilities. The big-hearted star revealed, "I had a beautiful girl named, Hailey, she is 8-years-old, and she had never been snowboarding. "She had so much faith in me and we had such fun and that's why I love kids, I love teaching them something I enjoy." The Expendables star has been having a great time in Utah mixing it up with friends and other industry people and he admitted to RumorFix special correspondent Gretchen Rossi that he loves the vibe of Sundance. The action hero also showed off his comic talents alongside Lisa Kudrow in HBO's The Comeback and that is another aspect that he enjoys  about acting -- showing people that he can make them laugh too. Kellan revealed, "She was amazing to work with and to learn from her comedic timing is amazing and I was like a sponge, but I started off in comedy also." The Twilight actor has been a big favorite at the festival this year and he has been totally open to meeting his fans and for giving back his time to needy kids too. Way to go Kellan!
