Kellan Lutz’s Co-Stars Inspired Him To Take Up Guitar

Oh brothers, always trying to one-up each other and do what the other does. This time, Kellan Lutz is following in the footsteps of his Twilight-brothers and co-stars Robert Pattinson and Jackson Rathbone by learning to play the guitar.

Last week, at at appearance at The Grove  in Los Angeles to debut his Dylan George and Abbot + Main clothing line, the 26-year-old actor talked to The Los Angeles Times about how being part of the Cullen clan has allowed him to develop an interest in music.

“I picked up the guitar now that I have some down time,” said Lutz, who plays the burly Emmett in the Twilight series. “I got a couple of books and some iPad apps, but I get to work with Rob and Jackson on all these movies, who are brilliant musicians. I get to learn from talented people.”

Although both Pattinson and Rathbone are accomplished musicians– Pattinson’s songs have been featured on the Twilight soundtrack and Rathbone is part of the band 100 Monkeys– Lutz admits that he won’t pursue his musical ventures much further.

“I can’t sing for crap,” he said, “but I enjoy picking up hobbies.”
