Taylor Lautner flashed a smile for the cameras as he arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday (February 1). The Twilight actor – who was catching a flight to Indianapolis – was traveling light, carrying only his sunglasses which made it easy to get through security.
Turns out that the 19-year-old heartthrob has had a similar week to his ex Taylor Swift – he too was involved in a casting shake-up. Word is that Lautner won’t be playing superhero Stretch Armstrong in the upcoming Stretch because he had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts, although everyone close to the production is remaining tight-lipped on exactly what those conflicts were.
So what’s up next for Taylor? Reports are that he is in talks with Oscar-winning director Gus Van Sant to make a small-budget film based on a nonfiction article from The New Yorker. Sounds like a low-key, indie role that will take him far from his Twilight persona.
