HollyBummer! Kellan Lutz Loses Out On Playing Conan The Barbarian

Are you as depressed as we are that we won’t be seeing Kellan flex his muscles in two hours worth of shirtless scenes on the big screen?

Of all the horrible luck! And we’re not just talking about you losing out on the role that Governor Ah-nold Schwarzenegger made famous, either, Kellan, 24. No, we’re mostly upset for ourselves that you won’t be playing half-naked warrior man Conan the Barbarian. We were REALLY looking forward to those two hours of pure aesthetic pleasure…

Unfortunately for all of us, you lost out on uber-hunky role to Stargate hottie Jason Momoa, 30, reports Deadline Hollywood’s Nikki Finke.

We can only imagine the tension you must have felt over the past few days, Kellan, when you realized the race to Conan was on – and you were one of the top two contenders. As Nikki reported, producers loved the way that Jason could wield a sword. Apparently your prowess with an epee wasn’t so…finely tuned. That’s OK, come cry on our shoulders – we’ll help you practice your moves!

But let’s look on the bright side. Even though we won’t be seeing you in your smalls, you’re going to be getting plenty of screen time in 2010. There’s your Nightmare On Elm Street remake which premieres April 30, the third installment of Twilight:Eclipse on June 30 (YAY!) and your flick with fellow Cullen sibling Ashley Greenein Warrior – where you’re FINALLY the leading man.

Keep pumping iron Kellan. We’re confident that you’ll be the big action star you always dreamed of being someday…and we hope that day is soon!
