He has acted on a number of television shows. He had recurring roles on Model Citizens and The Comeback, and smaller roles in episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, CSI: NY, Summerland, Six Feet Under, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and Heroes. He was also in the films Stick It, Accepted, and Prom Night. Additionally, Lutz has performed on the California stage and was the host of Bravo's Blow Out. He also appeared in the 2006 commercial for Hilary Duff's fragrance With Love... Hilary Duff, and in the 2007 music video for her single, "With Love". In 2008, he appeared in another music video, Hinder's "Without You". In the same year, Lutz also appeared in the miniseries Generation Kill, based on the book by Evan Wright.
He played Emmett Cullen in the film adaptations of the Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer and reprised his role for the sequel, released in November 2009. He also appeared as George Evans in the 90210 spinoff on The CW. Lutz reunited with his Twilight co-star and close friend, Ashley Greene, in the film A Warrior's Heart. Lutz also appeared in A Nightmare on Elm Street as Dean, "a well-liked, well-off high school jock", in April 2010, and as the feisty Poseidon, God of the Sea in Immortals (2011). Lutz was one of the candidates for the lead role in the upcoming film Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. He was considered for the lead role in Conan the Barbarian but eventually lost out to Jason Momoa. In 2011, together with his Immortals co-star Mickey Rourke, he shot Java Heat movies in Indonesia.
He enjoys extreme skateboarding, weight training, track, baseball, basketball, lacrosse, swimming, tennis, racquetball, badminton, snow skiing, snowboarding, dance, and numerous other activities. He also has a passion for horror films, and prefers to perform his own stunts when making films. Lutz previously dated 90210 co-star AnnaLynne McCord on and off, before beginning a relationship with Australian actress Sharni Vinson in mid-2011. The couple split in May of 2013 after almost 2 years of dating.
