Taylor Lautner: The Next Leo DiCaprio & Mark Wahlberg?

Taylor Lautner: The Next Leo DiCaprio & Mark Wahlberg?

Taylor Lautner has some high profile fans – including Mark Wahlberg!

“I am sitting at a table with a gentleman who is better looking than you and is in better shape than me,” Mark told Leonardo DiCaprio on Thursday (August 4) at the HFPA’s annual luncheon (via E! Online). “So, we’re both out of a job, dude. Taylor Lautner! We’re screwed.”

“It’s over, dude,” Mark added. “Titanic and Boogie Nights were a long time ago. I accept it. I had a good run and on to the next.”

DO YOU THINK Taylor Lautner will have a successful post-Twilight career?

    no one can come close to replicating dicaprio’s success. and certainly not taylor lautner. he’s average at best. only a commercial actor while dicaprio can do all types of roles. you compare leo’s roles at his age and there’s such a difference. taylor lautner could never do a “what’s eating gilbert grape”, “the aviator”, “this boy’s life” or “revolutionary road”

    A successful post-Twilight career? Sure. Career success on par with that of DiCaprio and Wahlberg? In a word, no.

    The difference between Mark Wahlberg & Leo Dicaprio and Taylor Lautner is that two are Oscar-nominated actors and one is famous for being shirtless. Sure Lautner will have a career, but only because girls like how he looks. He’s not that great of an actor and won’t ever land any serious roles.

    NOT AT ALL! Please, he is just another teenage crush. Come on! hell will freeze first.

    @DK: Mark started off as a rapper. He is a racist who was violent. So yeah, you can be famous no matter what. Taylor will never have the critical acclaim Leo does.

    Winter Says:

    In my opinion, the answer is No. He just doesn’t have the range that Mark and Leo has. Also, the whole Twilight thing seems to be phasing out, at least that’s what I hope.

    Leo has some ACTUAL talent and is actually SEXY! <3
    Mark is ALRIGHT I guess, but much better than that DOG!
    Taylor, your 15 minutes of fame and being naked are almost over! :D

    like everyone else has said, NO! Whether or not he is considered a heartthrob has nothing to do with the fact that Taylor’s acting skills are not even on par with Mark or Leo.

    yes he will be!!

    No way! Says:

    NO, NO, NO, NO AND NO. Definitely not! This can only be a joke. Or Mark told the best joke of the last years or he was drunk, because… this comparison was ridiculous. ABSURD.

  21. 21
    WHAT?! NOPE! Says:

    Definitely not. Beautiful, ok. But no way the talent of Taylor compares with DiCaprio. Mark is also a good actor, but Leo is already one of the greatest of all time, and this is reality. And don’t say that he was also questioned after the Titanic, because he had already made ​​great films, like Gilbert Grape, This Boy Life, The Basketball Diaries (with Mark, that was amazing too), Total Eclipse, so… what’s my point? Leo never studied to be an actor, he was born with all the talent and before all the success of Titanic he made ​​great films. What Mark said or was a joke, or he was misunderstood or was drunk… because this comparison was really stupid! I never laughed so hard in all my life.

    While Mark and Leo were adorable through the ceremony, there is no way, no. They were just joking and being nice JJ, don’t take it so literally. They are handsome and talented, they have always been. This guy on the other hand will be lucky if he gets a job once those stupid vampire movies finish.

    True Says:

    Who ever said Mark could act – omg?? Leo only made it big because he befriended Martin S. Be real folks. Taylor is no talent but Leo/Mark – right place right time….

    It depends on two things, if he plays his cards right (so far so good) and if he tales the craft of acting seriously and improves with every project he does. Then maybe… I also will add staying humble is a good virtue.

    Playing the cards right meaning getting advance money for things he didn’t even do yet just because he’s Taylor Lautner (that has happend ) and getting people like dicaprio and Wahlberg on your side. Also staying away from the Disney princesses. No dating those girls or singers who end up writing about you after a breakup. Keep the personal life clean.

    Wahlberg and DiCaprio are good but they were not the next Nicholson, Brando, Pacino, etc…You don’t have to be the next anybody. You have to be the best you.
