@ aquarius You should considering to take new movies to pulling down, I recommend you “The apparition” with Ashley Greene: Production Budget: $17 million. Domestic Total Gross: $4,936,819. Worldwide: $9,627,492. now you can enjoy to spread your comments in other direction…

Hardly anyone else is talking about Taylor’s possible casting in F&F7; the articles lean more towards the Maika hook-up (and that she may be a trashbox for her career). When your love life gets more press than prospective roles in a movie you’re not taken seriously as an actor.

@Monique – 82 million is still low for an action movie. If a movie doesn’t pull 100 million in under four weeks it’s considered a bomb. His acting talent is greatly questioned, otherwise Abduction would have made more money. ” has manners, physically …..gifted…………….and very easy on the eyes” , that’s not enough for a serious career, otherwise he would have more than Grown Up 2 and Tracers right now.

Another instance of Taylor and his team trolling for roles is this year’s Oscars. He attended the parties like a lot of people, but there were social media pics of him with the author of 50 Shades of Grey. Word was he was pitching to be cast as Christian. Days later articles were coming out that he was in consideration for that role. In the comments section the majority said “no way”; he was too young for the role. Those comments came from women. However, many said he would be perfect for Jose, Anastasia’s best friend who’s in love with her. Now who does this sound like?

Taylor is up against being typecast in a Jacob or Jacob-like role. He wants to be an action star; he has to get guys to want to see him in that kind of movie. Abduction’s 12-week, $28 million US box office haul proves he can’t sell an action movie relying on tween/teen girls flocking to the theaters to see Jacob redux. It pulled in money in foreign markets to help make a profit (82 million total), but it’s still low for this genre. In a trade magazine Abduction’s bad box office was listed as a factor for why Lionsgate took a 50 MILLION DOLLAR LOSS for its 3rd quarter. (Two other Lionsgate movies, Warrior and Conan, were also bombs and they were listed as reasons too.) Abduction’s poor performance was also rumored to be the reason Taylor was turned away for Expendables 2.

The point it, being “crazy beautiful” and looking hot standing with other hot guys are not enough to coast on an acting career, even in Hollywood. You have to show you can by yourself or with an ensemble help make a movie profitable. If Taylor does go for F&F7, he better leave Jacob at home. Right now when guys 18-49, the sweet spot for movie profits, hear he’s in a movie in a big way they’ll stay home. F&F6 pulled in a lot of money without him, he has to show he too can appeal to that target audience too.

@aquarius64-I totally agree with you. We also, as fans, need to let go of Jacob (kinda hard) and hope the production companies can put him in something that he can really show off his martial arts skills and other possible talent he may have. I would love to see him in some kind of warlike movie. Buzz the hair down like a marine, put on some camos and boots, and just cut loose on the front line. I think he could really pull something like that off if he really wanted to. One problem with him though is he prefers not to have roles where he has to use extreme vulgar language and sex scenes with total nudity. I think one day he might crack because that may be all he can get. Hope not.

I don’t get Taylor’s team. Why put his interest in F&F7 out this way? It makes Taylor look thirsty; desperate for a studio to consider him for a major movie or franchise. If he’s the major star that they (his team) say he is, the studios would come to him. But I wonder if this “leak” is a deflection of the Maika story? One blog supposedly reached out to them about the romance rumors and they play the “no comment” card? It was the hand-hold seen around the world, purposely, so why not cop to it? Could it be the supposedly single Taylor is in hot water with his supposed ex Sara Hicks (his out of town companion for HER sister’s v-ball game two weeks ago) over the Dodgers pics?

Not really Loui. This really does make him look kinda desparate. Also, outside Twilight, he really doesn’t have a whole lot to brag about. Some modeling, 1 movie that took 4 months to gross $28mil (aka flop) and just bit parts in a few others along with a SNL gig. He is well known but it’s because of his Jacob Black character. People are having a hard time letting go of that character.

Abduction made a profit………….85mill worldwide………………that wasn’t bad for an action film with a teenager as the lead. So he has plenty to brag about……….at 21……………he’s been part of a major film franchise………………….most actors twice his age can’t say that. I could never understand some people’s desire to attack him…………at such a young age? He’s talented, has manners, physically …..gifted…………….and very easy on the eyes.

Taylor is a grown man he doesn’t have to play games with an ex high school sweetheart. If he was holding hands…….in front of everyone with Maika……..they are clearly a couple. And I am not so sure Taylor or his team would publicly announce that he wants to be in the next Fast and Furious movie…………..I don’t think Taylor would do that. Although I hope he does get cast………….it seems more likely that his team would talk directly to Vin or the director ….directly……..not egg on gossip. Most top celebs do also ask to be involved in projects they like………….so there is nothing wrong with seeing a role that peaks your interest and going after it…………….I just don’t believe Taylor would do that publicly. So who knows……..maybe he’s already in the cast……..I would be so happy !!

@monique – he was asked because of a public action, he didn’t answer, something a “grown man” would do. If he can’t or won’t acknowledge her properly after the handhold then Maika is a jumpoff. The “no comment” is game playing with the press and the public..

And he and his team have floated prospective and “landed” roles out there in the past that don’t fall through. What’s going on with Incarceron and the Gus Van Sant movie/ It’s been two to three years. He was out of Stretch Armstrong, a role he went for A WEEK after he signed a deal to Max Steel. He screwed the Max Steel people over. He was up for Magic Mike as one of the dancers but he lost to Alex Pettyfer. See my earlier posts on Expendables 2, Abduction and 50 Shades. He has played the HW game and he still does.

OMG!! I have been thinking all along Taylor would easily blend into a Fast and Furious cast with Vin Diesel and the other gorgeous guys. Taylor is mature, full of positive energy and beautifully mixed. He would be a perfect fit!!

“He’s about to appear in his first big-screen hit since the Twilight saga ended”-PLEEZ! It’s a small bit part. “people in his camp are grooming him for a potential role” thought he was already groomed for Tracers which would already have him there when the filming is done, if it ever gets started. Gotta love the wording on these awesome and amazing HL stories by our beloved Bonnie!
