Taylor Lautner To Join X-Men???

| Filed under: Film FlickersJames McAvoyTwilightTaylor Lautner


20th Century Fox has their eye on Taylor Lautner to star in X-Men: First Class!

The studio has checked the actor's availability before offering the Twilight hunk a role.

James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender have already been tapped to play Professor X and Magneto in the film that's expected to start shooting this summer.

The targeted release date is June 3, 2011.

We think Taylor would be a fool to pass this up — the X-Men franchise is huge and we think he's perfect for it!

What do U think?

    Maybe Beast, before he went furry. Lautner could handle the acrobatics…

  2. 2

    Let me hope to hope that this isn't true because he will ruin one of my fave movie franchises. He isn't cute, sorry but he isn't, and he can't act, he isn't all that great of an actor. My sock puppets have more emotional range.

  3. 3

    I hope he considers taking elocution lessons so that he doesn't sound so gay all the time.

  4. 4

    HE WILL MAKE A GREAT NIGHT CRAWLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Im really not looking forward to that movie. They do need to reboot the franchise but the guys they've already cast just don't have the acting depth needed to play the characters they've been assigned well.

    I hope this project sinks before it makes it to the box office.

    Re: legacye – I hate to wish bad things on others but I couldn't agree more I also hope this movie idea stinks but the chances of that happening are slim to none so my hope like tallchick – said is that this isn't true…

  9. 9

    can he please fix his fug mutant nose

    Re: legacye – Are you a fucking retard or are you just pulling shit out of your ass? Maybe Taylor Lautner fits your description of having no acting depth, but Michael Fassbender is the most talented and ridiculously underrated actor of his generation. Have you seen any of his performances, really, before you claim that he has no acting depth? Go watch Hunger, Eden Lake, the tavern scene in Inglourious Basterds and Fish Tank, then you won't type things like that.

    Oh god this kid is so GAY. He has a great body but he IS gay. He just gives off the vibes.

  12. 12

    Taylor as Anole would be PERFECT casting. ;)

  13. 13

    Maybe a good Northstar too.

  14. 14

    The only person I can see Taylor Lautner coming close to being is Iceman, but rumor has it they are trying to get Shawn Ashmore to come back as Bobby Drake. Maybe Cyclops I don't know.

  15. 15

    hell no, keep him away.

  16. 16

    But, he cant act.. hes kind of cute,but he cant act…..

  17. 17

    This is awesome news and I hope it is true. I was thinking a while back of the Twilight cast and what different roles they each could play to get away for being labeled with Twilight. I thought either Taylor or Kellan would be great in the X-Men series. I hope this is true and Taylor does it.

  18. 18

    Sorry but he looks like he belongs in a wildlife reserve, not another movie.

  19. 19

    Well Taylor is perfect for this considering that most action movies don't require any actual acting talent. Seriously, Taylor needs to hire an acting coach. He sucks, and is just relying on his body.

  20. 20

    It would be fine if he had a role that required minimal acting ability. Other than that, no thanks.

  21. 21

    A young wolverine? I know, I know, again with the wolves.

  22. 22

    Sorry but this guy has squinty eyes and a very unattractive face and cannot act. So no.

  23. 23

    that could be cool i cant see him in the twilight movies cause i cant stand those movies lol and i love the x men

  24. 24

    Maybe he could play Mammomax…google it if you need to. Perfect casting!

  25. 25

    He's so hot. God, I wanna lick him. TASTY!!! (and salty)

  26. 26

    Good idea!
    Actually would fit xmen well… Depends on who he would play though.

  27. 27

    Great choice actually.

  28. 28

    Re: Fck Yeah
    Is this really that much of a problem for you? if you don't like, don't watch his movies…

  29. 29

    well that gross nose of his sure makes him look like some sort of mutant

  30. 30

    Re: Fck Yeah – you give off vibes of being a fucking moron

  31. 31

    any role without a shirt, pls.

  32. 32

    way to stretch your acting wings Taylor…there's NO WAY you're starting to be type casted. I say turn it down.

  33. 33

    him and his abs need to take the offer! i love x-men but with him in it i would love it even more!

  34. Ryze says – reply to this


    Please do not let this happen. If there is a God(dess) this will not happen.

  35. 35

    He can play Llama Boy!!!!!! lol

  36. 36

    LAME!!!!!!! Is he going to play the same roles for the rest of his life???? LAME LAME LAME!!!!!

  37. 37

    YES! awesome movies!

  38. 38

    I love the X-Men!

  39. 39

    He's such a sweet heart, I hope he makes it!! I just love him to bits, I want him to be my son-in-law. He seems like such a good young man!

  40. 40

    This will ruin X-Men for me. Fuck I hate Twilight!

  41. Eris says – reply to this


    I cannot imagine him as none of the characters in the x-men comics, as far as I know there are no philipino mutants.

  42. 42

    He can't talk without mumbling, can't portray emotion, and looks short and thin. Were all the other people (I hesitate to call them "actors") in Twilight standing in a trench while he was standing on a box? Were his muscles really CGI? Does anybody actually care?

  43. 43

    Please God, don't let this shit take place!

  44. m.j says – reply to this


    I wish people would shut up about his nose. Just because he doesnt have some slim, pointy nose that everybody is so familiar with its ugly!? Theres nothing wrong with it. Its a NOSE. I'm sure the same ppl saying that could use a little tuck here or there or a little pout to there there thin lips!!

  45. 45

    I think Fay-Fay needs to get the deformity on his face fixed before he does another franchise.

  46. 46

    Like totally.! Omg he has a cold sore! Can't wait for the movie! ahhhh hes so sexcii

  47. 47

    hmm wonder who he would play? Beast? i have no idea who was in the first class besides beast, cycolps and stupid jean grey.

  49. 49

    Are you kidding me??!!!
    Are studios just putting aside real talent to use these little 15 minutes of fame teenie bobbers for everything???
    Stop with the teenage shit and move on with the Adult movies already. And by adult i don't mean porn :)

  50. 50

    i hope soo (: (:

  51. 51

    Re: Fck Yeah – hes not gay at all lol.

    you have bad vibes if u think hes gay.
    you dont know if he's dating someone secretly.
    your an idoit and probaly some fat jealous 15 year old guy

  52. 52

    Re: Clodius – yes pppl actually care about him and twilight saga.
    it made over 260 million dollars worldwide.

    he can act. he has done several flims and TV shows before twilight came along
    the twilight saga was taylor, rob, and kristens big break,

    it is very talented cast

    eclipse earned 5 stars!

    When I went to Bryan Singer's party, I knew something was about to happen and I also thought of X-Men which Singer is producing.

  54. 54

    This dog-faced kid can't do anything but showing his abs.

  55. 55

    as who?

  56. AshGB says – reply to this



  57. 57

    Only character I feel he fits is Forge but I don't think he will be in this Xmen. BTW cut Taylor a break, he's still a young actor. Our society accepts being vicious as a norm too readily

    i really hope this happens :D

  62. 62

    just saw on another site that he is not going to be in x men.. :(

  63. 63

    taylor lautner will not take the opportunity to be in xmen, sorry fans :(
    its annoying.. it would of been a smart career move, but he is busy with other things..

  64. 64

    Re: trinigirl123 – Just fyi…a wolverine isn't a wolf it's a really vicious little bear like thing with nasty ass claws.

    Also I agree with everyone who says he shouldn't be cast. You go from having a not only sexy and manly but brilliant actor like Jackman, and then switch it up to this cute little girly boy. Wolverine needs a bad ass to play him.

    Re: CHADSI – Did you fall down and smack your head on pavement? Sean Fox is a fraud who plants stories about his make believe stories with Taylor. It is evident throughout the web that he /you/ Erica = Sean Fox are making these stories up. Stop already. Anyone with sense can see right through your lies. P.S. Please get some help - you are only an embarrassment to yourself.
