Robert Pattinson's been the apple of our eye since Twilight came out, but there's another cast member who's on our hot-dude radar. Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black) is one good-looking young man who is not to be overlooked. But he's not just a very pretty face. There are a few quirky little things you ought to know that'll make you love him more.
Taylor didn't set out to be an actor — his first love was actually martial arts! As a child and young teen, he represented his country competing in world tournaments, and hadn't even thought about acting until his martial arts instructor suggested he audition for a Burger King ad!
Taylor wasn't successful with the ad, but he apparently loved the experience so much he decided to pursue a career in acting, which prompted his family to pack up and moved to Los Angeles so he could attend as many auditions as possible.
Taylor had a few small gigs before he got his break as Jacob in Twilight, and those of you with a good memory will remember him from Cheaper by the Dozen 2. [hehe, I do (;]
On the subject of Twilight, Taylor said he had no idea how big the film would be!
"When I first found out I had an audition for some Twilight movie, my agent told me … 'Yeah, this one's kind of big. This one's big.' And I was like, 'I've never heard of it … '" Taylor told reporters at the LA Twilight premiere.
"So then I get cast and I go do my research. 'Oh this is based off a book series. How big is the book series?' So I check it out and it was just mind-blowing. I'm just, 'Oh my gosh, what am I getting myself into?!' This is life-changing, so now I'm so excited to be a part of it," Taylor said.
And we are all so, so happy that Taylor will be reprising his role, as werewolf Jacob Black, in Twilight's sequel, New Moon.
