TWILIGHT star Kellan Lutz is angling for a role alongside Matt Damon in the upcoming BOURNE sequel, because he's desperate to show off his action skills.
The actor admits he's been an action man since he was a kid and was often caught playing with fire - literally.
He says, "When I was younger I was a pyromaniac, just lighting everything on fire. So before all the crazy reality (TV) shows came out, I'd make my own stuff and film it and have fun getting hurt."
Lutz is confident his daredevil past has prepared him well for a part in the fourth installment of the Bourne franchise, and he's appealing to casting directors to get in touch.
He adds, "The Bourne franchise, that'd be fun. Jason Bourne is a real action hero, he gets hurt, he gets cut up and shot up, so I think it would be cool to do one day. I've been saying it enough, so come on!"
The future of the next Bourne film has been left in limbo following the recent departure of filmmaker Paul Greengrass, who directed 2004's The Bourne Supremacy and its 2007 follow-up The Bourne Ultimatum.
But Lutz's fans won't have to wait too long to see him in action - the star recently wrapped filming on Twilight sequel Eclipse, in which he was allowed to perform his own stunts.
He explains, "After all my nagging in the first and the second movies, the Twilight producers let me do most of my own stunts in the third movie so that was fun."
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is due for release in June (10).
