Taylor Lautner is Max Steel

I could see him as Max Steel.

# 2

weineries. i <3 tay tay

# 3

well i watch some episodes, it perfectly fits him well. but the series is really kidish. it might turn out as another speed racer. what i like about the show is that the characters are diverse.

# 4

Nay. He needs to grow up. So annoying.

# 5

can he do a movie that wouldnt involve his body?
for someone to prove their acting skills to me they gotta do a movie like

charlize theron – monster.
angelina jolie – changling

like movies like that
but eyy. whatever works..

# 6

yesss.. im most definitely excited!!
i love taylor lautner. but i wish he would explore a more mature role.
but whatevs i guess

@hmm: I agree, the movie industry is only looking @ the bottom dollar, it’s not about quality, acting abilities, no values just the almighty dollar, that sucks.

# 8

Completely agree with #5. This movie just sounds idiotic.

Oh leave the kid least he’s got a career. At 17 he has plenty of time to make his way towards meatier roles…Look at those other actors in the Harry Potter films..what meatier movies have they done aside from HP??? And as for the other members of Twilight (puttin Kristen Stewart and Pattinson aside), the actors who played the Cullen brothers and sisters what other movies are the going to be in..
This dude is getting a lead role in a film…not bad..Beats working in McDonalds.

very excited :)

I wonder if Taylor Lautner will use HGH again to bulk up like he did in New Moon

If Taylor Swift and him get married they would both be Taylor Lautner & Taylor Lautner.

i’m not interested..this kid is not interesting at all. no personality!!!!i wonder why he was in twilight!

nay he is more suited for movies with guy on guy action ;)

You’re rude #14…I think he’s good in New Moon…and I’m not refering to his body…I think he did a good job…
But I’m not sure acting as Max Steel is a good option for him…

are you kiddddding?! This guy is a HORRIBLE actor. Just because he has a nice body doesnt mean he would be good in anything. Im sure there are TONS of hot guys who can actually act who could pull this off. wowwww.

Dating Taylor Swift has really payed off for him huh…

This will prove to be a bad career move, he’s not ready for these roles. Other than a bit a body, he’s not a good actor.

Wow, he’sdoing pretty well for a KID.
Jeez, hormones these days….

christine @ 12/06/2009 at 7:15 am

Hey, don’t pick on the little guy…. he’s barely made it into the real world to have experienced enough in life to become a better actor.

sharkboy can't act... @ 12/06/2009 at 8:32 am

…all the actors in “the saga,” with the exception of some of the adults, are in for a rude awakening…r-patz is a goner — think “starwars/mark hamil/luke” type-casting hell — wolfboy/sharkboy/x-treme boy better rake in the $$$ well he can…

He’s only 17, and he’s got time to prove himself. I think he’s got potential that he just needs to be given a chance to tap into. Unfortunately, his role as Jacob might be a bittersweet thing; it’s going to be hard to prove that he can do more than be a shirtless werewolf. Anyway, an action movie is light on the acting, so I wouldn’t worry about his “bad acting”, as some people think. Personally, I think he was the only one of the main three in New Moon that had any concept of emotion.

You know Paramount is goin to look to have him showoff that body! I know I would milk it!
