Taylor Lautner Will Have A New, Non-Jacob-Black 'Swag' In Upcoming Film 'Abduction,' Says Director!

Taylor Lautner is transforming from Jacob Black into a man who means business in his new role as Nathan Harper! Are you excited for a new, never before seen Taylor?

We reported that Taylor Lautner, 19, is set to take on a completely different role in the film Abduction. Now the movie’s director is speaking out! According to the film’s director, John Singleton, Taylor’s character will have a new kind of “swag!” Should we start calling him Justin Bieber?

“It’s about him having a different kind of swag than he does as Jacob,” John told MTV. “In this movie, he’s Nathan Harper and he’s a kickass dude in this movie.”

Taylor skyrocketed to stardom for his role as Jacob in Twilight, but John says that this character will be something fans have yet to see out of the young actor.

“They’re gonna see a whole different Taylor Lautner from what Jacob is in the ‘Twilight’ pictures,” John said. “My goal as a director was to work with him as an actor, for him to have something that’s a different character.”

Though Taylor plays a tough guy on set, he drops the act when cameras weren’t rolling and even takes time out for his fans! What a great guy!

“It was really funny because, you know, after we worked all these hours, he’d go out and he’d graciously shake peoples’ hands and sign autographs,” John said. “He’s phenomenal. I call him a trooper; he’s a real soldier.”
