DETAILS: What goes through your mind when you see contestants doing these crazy things on Bullseye?
Kellan Lutz: I just want to be in their shoes—or their harness, as it were. It’s funny for me to be on the ground since I’m so used to doing these elaborate stunts in my movies. That’s why I love doing action movies.
DETAILS: Have you tried out any of the stunts yourself on the show?
Kellan Lutz: I didThe Human Slingshot and it was so much fun. There are two cranes suspended 50 feet up and you’re on the ground in this harness, and they pull you back like a slingshot and literally send you flying over a canyon. I got hurt on that one, and they wouldn’t let me do anymore because insurance flipped out. One of the carabiners clipped my head when it launched. I got five staples!
DETAILS: What’s been the highest high you’ve ever felt?
Kellan Lutz: Well, I’ve sky-dived and bungee-jumped but the scariest thing I’ve done is scuba diving. If you don’t know how to properly scuba, you can drown or get nitrogen poisoning and the first time I scuba’ed, I was shooting Generation Kill in Mozambique. A bunch of us got certified but we were being dicks and weren’t really paying attention. Then, we raced to the bottom which was about 30 feet down. Oh, and you weren’t supposed to drink the night before because it thins out your blood but we were all drinking every night, of course, and we raced to the bottom being chauvinistic dudes. By the time got to the bottom, we were all out of air, we had the driest lungs. Some of the boys panicked because they didn’t have proper air, and we had to pull them down, because if you swim to the surface without properly equalizing, you could die, your lungs could explode. It’s actually life and death. Add on top of it that we had whale sharks in the water with us! We didn’t realize it. We felt this dark presence behind us, you turn around and see a big ass shark. But it was a beautiful experience.
