Taylor Lautner a No-Go for 'X-Men' Sequel

Taylor Lautner a No-Go for 'X-Men' Sequel-photo

Sorry, Taylor Lautner fans; you won't be seeing your favorite werewolf get his mutant on anytime soon. Unless you count the freakish awesomeness of his abs.

Though rumor has it that the Eclipse hunk was poised to sign on with James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender in the upcoming X-Men: First Class, which is due to begin filming this summer, apparently such is not the case. E! Online tracked down Lautner's reps to get the inside dirt on this exciting bit of casting news on Wednesday.

The verdict? "Not true," according to Team Lautner.

Oh well; we can still look forward to T-Laut getting superheroic in the upcoming Stretch Armstrong adaptation. And we can always hope for a long-awaited sequel to the 2005 classic The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D...

    I'm sorry, do people even READ these stories before publishing them. Think about what you just suggested. Taylor Lautner in S men? With James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender? These guys are serious actors--with legitimate talent. Clearly, the director is looking for TALENT in addition to looks. So why would he consider Taylor Lautner who has no proven talent or personality??

    The didn't talk to Taylor Lautner's direct rep, they talked to someone who knows the rep. E news is unreliable. Chances are he might still be up for the role. Yea!
