As if "Twilight" heartthrob Kellan Lutz didn't already have enough admirers, things could get even crazier for the actor as his new underwear ads for Calvin Klein start showing up next month.

Lutz, 24, who plays vampire Emmett Cullen in the blockbuster movie series, is one of four new faces for the company's latest campaign. He'll join actor Mehcad Brooks ("Eggs" Benedict Talley from HBO's "True Blood") , Fernando Verdasco, a Spanish tennis star and Hidetoshi Nakata, a Japanese soccer player.

The ads will debut Calvin Klein's "X" underwear line, Women's Wear Daily reports, with print and outdoor ads launching March 1.

Past Calvin Klein underwear models include Mark Wahlberg, Antonio Sabato Jr. and Kate Moss. Could the campaign help launch Lutz into the same superstardom as his blood-sucking co-star Robert Pattinson? Hey, Wahlberg went from the Funky Bunch to Oscar-nominated actor. That doesn't bite.

Plus, it answers that age-old question: Vampires prefer boxer briefs.
