::Team Emmett:: Kellan Lutz in his "Tighty Whities". Could life get any better than this?

Kellan Lutz has been chosen to be the next face or better yet, the new body for Calvin Klein's new line of men's underwear, Calvin Kein X. He will be following in the footsteps of former Calvin models Mark Wahlberg and Djimon Hounsou.

“I started out modeling so this is the pinnacle,” Lutz tells People Magazine of the Spring 2010 campaign. “What more can you do than be on a billboard for something that you grew up thinking was super sexy and classy? It’s really prestigious and I love it.”

People asked if he was anxious about stripping down to his skivvies and Kellan's response was, “With modeling, there are guys who do the Zoolander thing and it shows off as desperation, You just have to have confidence, kick back and have fun with it.”

When asked about his sex symbol image, Kellan says, “I don’t see myself as perfect. I never will be and I never want to be, I’m not the good-looking guy with the nice hair like [Twilight co-star] Robert Pattinson. I enjoy being not so pretty.”

The new ads will begin to come out in March and will be in magazines, TV and billboards. I can't wait to be driving down the highway and catch my first glimpse of Kellan on a 20 foot billboard. I can hear all the cars screeching to a halt already!
