Watch out Tom Cruise and Matt Damon, it looks like a new young action star is upon us.
You may remember Lucas Till from Hannah Montana: The Movie and Taylor Swift's music video for "You Belong With Me," but get ready to see a lot more of him in 2011. Lucas is set to star in two big action movies this year: Battle: Los Angeles and X-Men: First Class.
The 20-year-old is featured in the new issue of V-Man magazine where he shared that he really had to bulk up for these new films. For Battle: Los Angeles, Lucas had to attend a 3 week bootcamp to play a Marine.
So Lucas spends a lot of time in the gym, what is his favorite exercise challenge? He shares, "My favorite challenge is a combination of a pull-up and a dip: you go from hanging fully down to being above the chin-up bar with your arms fully extended, like the top of a dip. [These are called ';muscle-ups' and they're more or less impossible for anyone not in insane, peak physical condition.] I am currently ahead of Edi Gathegi [of Twilight evil vampire fame, and he plays Darwin in First Class] by one. Just thought everyone should know."

Do you think Lucas has the potential to be a big action star? Are you looking forward to his movies?
