Taylor Lautner is not playing Max Steel. Rejoice!

02.26.2010

Lately Taylor Lautner has been snagging up roles left and right.

Why? It might have a lot to do with the fact that the ladies are all hot and bothered over this guy.

For those of you who aren't drooling over wereboy, you might be happy to know that he's decided to back out of MAX STEEL. Lautner is wanting to focus his energy on the STRETCH ARMSTRONG film.

If anyone cares about the details, it was basically Hasbro vs. Mattel. Hasbro presented a better package in Lautner's opinion, so he went with ARMSTRONG. Mattel has also made little progress in Hollywood. Vulture got this slightly funny comment from an insider familiar with Lautner's decision, "When you sign up to make a movie with Hasbro, you know it will be in theaters a year later."

I don't want to sound like an asshole, but Lautner's acting is kinda terrible. Maybe the kids got something good up his sleeve, and his performances in the TWILIGHT films were a fluke. Somehow though, I'm thinking that's not the case either.

Extra Tidbit: Did you ever cut open your Stretch Armstrong to see what was inside of it? I did. What a huge mistake that was.

It doesn't matter who you cast...

I can't comment on Lautner's acting because I've never seen him in anything. He looks pretty generic and not a guy with a blonde mullet.

Still, why is there going to be a Stretch Armstrong movie? Do they even still make Stretch Armstrongs? It makes no sense, what's next a Teddy Ruxpin film?

I didn't have to cut him open, once he got tired of stretching it just kinda oozed out.

I'm not very familiar with Max Steel, but aside from the obvious Hasbro connection, I don't know why someone, especially a dark-haired someone, would wanna be Stretch Armstrong if they had the choice.

I don't get it. Look at that piggy little face, with its squinty little eyes. I still don't get it.

Sex appeal is about more than physical appearance. Look at Humphrey Bogart and Mae West.

Wait.... a Stretch Armstrong film?... that HAS to be a joke. Either way, Lautner is a joke.

I'd agree but based on the skills he showed on SNL, I'm pretty sure he could kick my ass up and down the street so I'll stay shut.

Hey Niki is an awesome writer, but so is Paul. I don't get what the beef is against Tassi. Like Terminal said, leave him alone.

max steel such a wierd property

i like max steel, played the game as a kid and watched the show here and there (when i could find it ) But lets face it- it's a third if not fourth tier property. so whats with all the sudden fan boy love? i think Taylor would have done a decent job.

I know who he is, but, I've yet to see a movie with him. None the less, I can't help but figure, that one day, people will be saying they liked him all along. It's just a hunch, and it's presupposing that he grows into an actor of notice one day.

I haven't seen him in anything yet either so I think it is a little unfair to judge this kid. He seems pretty down to Earth when I see him on tv. I remember when Leonardo Dicaprio had this much hate towards him too, but now we love him. I think it happens for every young heart throb.
