Taylor Lautner: $20 Million Movie Man

Taylor Lautner is taking home a huge payday for two projects he’ll shoot this year!

The 18-year-old Twilight actor will earn over $10 million for each of his projects at Fox 2000 and Regency, Deadline reports.

Casting is underway for Taylor‘s love interest in Incarceron – reported frontrunners are Blake Lively, Jennifer Lawrence, and Emma Watson.

Taylor‘s second project is a still unnamed spy thriller – think “The Bourne Identity for the next generation”.

DO YOU THINK Taylor Lautner is worth such a hefty paycheck?

I think Blake L. looks a little bit old to play Claudia so I hope for Emma W. I’m really happy for Taylor!

I don’t understand how the world goes nowadays: terrible actors = many projects and lots of money. Talented actors = no job.

don’t like his acting, but he’s nice.
I don’t think it’s gonna be blake, too tall for him

“DO YOU THINK Taylor Lautner is worth such a hefty paycheck?”

Um, no.

Overrated and overpaid.

really ? what he did to get that ? untill now he didnt get any

main role i hate Twilight **** i dont know what people like

it on it

REALLY?? it will be interesting to see if he has a fan base outside of that vampire schlock…

he can’t act.. this bussiness is so retarded.. talentless singers and actors get millions and real talent stays undiscovered and underpayed..

lame

Horrible actor. He couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag. Oh … wish the Twilight bs would end already so that these nobodies would finally go away. So many talented actors around so hope it is soon.

Gees, that’s Jennifer Lawrence. She is going to get an Oscar nomination, show her some respect by getting her last name correct. Why do you care what his paycheck is? Is it coming out of YOUR pocket? Why the negative spin Jared? Studios execs are making BILLIONS off these actors, why shouldn’t they get their’s? Plus he is producing which means putting up some of HIS money too. I hope it’s Emma Watson picked for the role because I love her best. Since the part is for a girl of age 16 or 17, it’s safe to say Blake Lively is too OLD.

oh i love how everytime theres a big female role up blake lively manages to get her name squeezed in there. funny how she NEVER gets that role and NEVER will.
i wonder who she’s banging to get that though…
hmm i guess we’ll never know

@Michele:

You’d be surprised Michele, he has a HUGE fanbase.. ;)
But since all of you seem to bury him without even knowing “him” and his work, you’ll never know.. ;)

@Lilie: too bad that fanbase doens’t equal talent

then again, if producers are willing to give him that much, why shouldn’t he accept it? be real for a second and imagine it was you, would you say “I’m a bad actor, I really think you shouldn’t give me that much”?

Don’t think so, it be more like “jeez, if you insist on giving that eventho I’m not that good, sure I’ll take it! Who knows how long this lucky streak is going to last anyway!”

In any 9-5 job, there are many who are overpaid for what they do, but they don’t refuse the paycheck or ask for a demotion… So I say it’s the producers’ fault.

He is a horrible actor and a bit funny looking. The kids today have bad standards.

People like him get $20m!!!!! Kate Winslet doesn’t get that and she’s a flawless actress.

we shall see what happens after twilight.. right now they are just riding that wave… EVERYONE from the studios to the producers to the actors.. time will tell. I think he’s an OK actor.. he’s just starting out and got lucky with that franchise. let’s see how things are in 5 years.
