    He’s getting amazing reviews for this read. BN is one of my all time favorite movies and I would have KILLED to see Taylor in this role. Praying that someone broke the rules and releases some vid or audio of this reading.

    All that Twilight fame and this is ALL he can get when it comes to roles? Dude needs to fire his management.

  • SMH

    @Aquarius64 do you always have to be negative all the time. Geez!

  • justcheckingin

    He does have a bad management team. He is capable of much better but they pick and choose for him and set the money bar too high. This is his 2nd team since he hit the big time.

    @justcheckingin: Taylor’s management is headed up by his controlling father, which explains the reluctance to unload this group. This reading, along with a shopping mall appearance in the Philippines for a regional clothing company, an uncredited film role where Taylor’s presence didn’t increase the box office, and STILL PR dating his co-star to drum up interest in his latest movie, shows the ineptitude of that crew.

  • justcheckingin

    @aquarius64: So true and most people don’t see that. They still have him on the Twilight pedestal which has now fallen down. All the other cast members have moved on with many projects because they don’t let their team (incl daddy) choose for them and name the price. I really want to see him do something worthy again.

  • aquarius64

    @justcheckingin: So sad about Twilight. Those fan girls will eventually grow up and outgrow the crush they have on him. Even with the reading they are playing up to his looks. We all have a preview of what Taylor could look like in 30-40 years through his father. He better get some skills….and fast.

  • justcheckingin

    Sad he isn’t doing much of anything outside Twilight. He probably wants to pick up a few indie films for something to do but team daddy has the stakes too high so he gets rejected almost everytime. Get a new team Tay even if it means practicing tough love with daddy.

    Be paid weekly and earn like a boss! Since I started with my online business, I earn $62 every 15 minutes! My best friend has been averaging 11k for months now and he works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless. This is what I do Jobs95.(com
