Watch Kellan Lutz Transform Into Hercules

Based on what we’ve seen so far, Kellan Lutz makes one very convincing demigod in the upcoming action film, The Legend of Hercules. We’ve heard about his rigorous training and diet, but did you know he sat in the makeup chair for two hours every day to fully transform into the film’s wounded hero?

Lutz admitted most of that time was spent hiding real cuts and bruises. “We have more scars to cover up just from all the intense battle scenes and fight choreography,” he told Celebuzz behind the scenes in Bulgaria. In case you wanted another reason to swoon over the hunk, Lutz performed his own stunts in the film.
