Lol wow i love how silly kids are saying that Lautner would of done these actors a favour?
Liam is an incredible actor and did the role justice, and as for these so called actors you disrespect they just happen to be some of the biggest action stars around and have each made a well earned name for themselves, they are in this film celebrating that, no one cares of a couple petty remarks facts are they have made their names and are all legends in their own right. They made mine and many others childhoods what they are today! What actions heros are around today, and no batman and superman do not count. >.> respect and well done to Liam.

To which was all say, thank God. Lautner is a terrible actor, and even worse as an action star – there is a reason he stopped getting work after Abduction, he has all the screen presence and acting ability of a garden zucchini. Hemsworth, say what you will, can act and has a prescience on screen beyond making teen girls fap to his abs.

Oh, and the fangirls saying ‘Why would Launter want to be in a movie with a bunch of washed up action stars?’ – because the least of them has more talent in his shoe than ol’ Sharkboy possesses in his entire body, have members revered the world over across multiple demographics, have people among them who have both been nominated and won Acadamy Awards, spearheaded some of the greatest movies of all time, and be remembered as icons for decades after they die. Lautner will be forgotten once his tween fan girls graduate middle school and TigerBeat stops putting his face on the cover.

According to HL, Taylor Lautner sucks as an actor and Liam is better than him, just to sum up everything!
Well let me tell you why Gus van Sant wants to work with him?? Why Nicholas Sparks sees him in a movie from one of his books??
The guys are different and than God Taylor won’t be in The Expendables 2: the movie is not that attractive and I don’t think Liam will do a big part in it probably just a cameo! Taylor has plenty of works in his road and he’s working on better projects!

Bullsh*t. Taylor turned this role down, that’s why he wasn’t in it. They announced ages ago that Taylor turned this role down. Just more crap from Hollywood lies.

Hollywood is going to regret the day that they tried to screw Taylor around! He is going to show Hollywood that he is good actor. Hollywood sucks just because Abdcuction tanked doe snot mean he is a bad actor, There have been many great actors with movies that sucked in his or her career!

The reason is false, Taylor already said a year ago that he never heard about a role in The Expendables 2! Hollywoodlife is just showing once again that they don’t like Taylor Lautner, they prefer Liam because of Miley( btw he did a flop with “THe last song” remember: Abduction did better!!) there are everyday articles about Liam and Miley so of course we know in which side HL is with!! Taylor is a better actor he’ll do better and we’ll have best roles coming his way!!
