Taylor Lautner Breaks Free of Twilight With ABDUCTION

A thriller centered on a young man who sets out to uncover the truth about his life after finding his baby photo on a missing persons website. [IMDB]

Say what you will about Taylor Lautner, but I think he's got da chops to make it as a big blockbuster Hollywood star. It might take some time for the general public to take him serious after Twilight, but he's cute, he's ripped, and he can act. You might debate that, but I think he can.

His new action flick, Abduction, comes out in September, and looks very much like an intallment in the Bourne franchise, and I mean that in a good way. Except this one's about teenagers. Regardless, he seems to kick a lot of ass in this trailer, and he's lookin' good. Haters don't hate.

He gives off a very charming Cruise-esque action-star vibe. You know, without the alien thing.

What do you think of this one? Do you think Taylor will make it in Hollywood without Twilight?

People can't help but love this young actor! Even if Taylor does sign on for a Twilight spin-off, his new thriller coming out in September will carry him forward in the industry (away from the Jacob/werewolf stereotype). He has made a name for himself and we support his success. Great that you agree too!

I think Taylor is super cute and his acting is no worse than the majority of people working in Hollywood today. I'm actually really interested to see what he'll look like in about 10 years and hope that his career lasts long enough for me to find out.

inMovies - we'd totally be up for reading AND watching Tay's Twilight spinoff!

Amber - couldn't have said it better. I just want him to grow up a bit so I don't feel so weird about the way I look at him.
