Kellan Lutz - Kellan Lutz joins Experimenter cast

Kellan Lutz has been cast in 'Experimenter'.

The 29-year-old hunk will be joined by Star Trek's Anton Yelchin and 'Orange Is the New Black' star Taryn Manning in the film about social psychologist Stanley Milgram.

The Michael Almereyda-directed movie - which stars Peter Sarsgaard and Winona Ryder - focuses on the life of Milgram, who designed the controversial Obedience Experiments at Yale University in 1961, which analysed the responses of people who believed they were sending harmful electrical shocks on a stranger.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lutz has signed on to play actor William Shatner, who portrayed the psychologist in a 1970s TV movie, with Yelchin playing Rensaleer, a character who resists authority.

Meanwhile, Manning is going to play distressed test subject Mrs. Lowe.

'ER' actor Anthony Edwards has also joined the cast as the very first test subject Miller, while Edoardo Ballerini will play Milgram's best friend.

Sarsgaard is starring as Milgram, while Ryder is playing one of his students, Sasha Menkin, who he falls in love with after she helps with the experiments.

Filming has already begun in New York City.
