Special Agent Crosby – and the series’ additional lead characters – debuted on an episode of the Network’s hit series FBI, and during the first season of FBI: MOST WANTED, Lutz and his cast mates appeared on FBI again for a crossover episode.
Lutz has amassed a large body of feature film roles over the last few years. He is well known for his role as vampire Emmett Cullen in the feature film “Twilight” based on the novels by Stephenie Meyer, as well as the billion-dollar franchise’s five subsequent sequels. Additionally, he had the title role in “The Legend of Hercules” and lead roles in “Guardians of the Tomb,” “Speed Kills,” “Love, Wedding, Marriage” opposite Mandy Moore and James Brolin, “Prom Night,” “Java Heat,” based on the Max Barry, in which he starred opposite Mickey Rourke, and in the independent films “Deep Winter” and “The Tribe.” He appeared in the remake of “What Men Want” opposite Taraji P. Henson for director Adam Shankman, “The Osiris Child” and “Extraction,” and in the role of “Smilee” in “The Expendables 3” with Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harrison Ford. Also, he played Poseidon in “Immortals” with Henry Cavill, Freida Pinto and Stephen Dorff, and appeared in “Arena” opposite Samuel L. Jackson, and in the remake of the 1984 horror classic “A Nightmare on Elm Street” for director Samuel Bayer, followed by “Meskada,” for director Josh Sternfeld, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. In the independent film “Experimenter,” which debuted at Sundance in 2015, Lutz played a young William Shatner. Additionally, Lutz had his first foray in animated films as the title character in the film “Tarzan.”
Lutz started his acting career as a series regular on the television series “The Comeback” right before appearing in the feature films “Stick It” and “Accepted.” His additional television credits include starring in the mini-series “Generation Kill,” a recurring role in the reboot of “90210” and guest starring roles on “Heroes” and “Summerland.”
In addition to acting, Lutz appeared in several high-profile modeling campaigns, including the sought-after job of appearing on the cover of Abercrombie & Fitch’s Summer Catalogue 2004 and in a Levi’s jean ad campaign. Also, Lutz was the face of the Calvin Klein X Underwear campaign, following in the footsteps of Mark Wahlberg.
When not acting, Lutz gives his time to the charities PETA and the Royal Family Kids’ Camp (RFKC). The RFKC is a nationwide network of camps for abused and abandoned children. Each camp organizes a summer camp experience for boys and girls who have gone through difficult life situations.
Born and raised in North Dakota, Lutz kept busy by playing games at the local arcade, going to the bowling alley, hunting and sledding. Lutz insists on living life like an adventure, enjoying sky diving, parasailing, motor cross and white-water rafting, believing one should “try new things, you only live once.”
Lutz has patented two inventions, including an exercise device that uses air resistance to perform the exercises, and is waiting for the prototype to be created.
Lutz is the middle child of six brothers and one sister. Currently, he lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Brittany Gonzalez-Lutz, and their dog, Koda.
