Taylor Lautner, Abduction
pick me! I can't stand this actor's face. Just something about it.
Matt Damon of course! it would at least give credit to an awesome actor that they used to copy from in this film
i don't think he should try to be anyone but himself
He should be unique and not strive to be like anyone else.
Can't get enuff of Taylor!! Yummmmm
I Think he should model himself after Bruce Willis. All these actors have great qualites in them, but here is why I say Bruce Willis. Bruce has done many many different roles throughout his career, and all of them have been played expectionally well, and in different genres. At heart, we love seeing him do action movies and I think Taylor is becoming one of those actors. Bruce Willis is also one of those actors that are humble and isn't cocky, like Taylor is. Also, not saying that you can't tell this from other actors, but Bruce is acting because he deeply loves acting and the movie making process. Not for any recongition or award, and I can see that same ambition in Taylor's eyes. Even if critics see him as 1 character...
Himself ofcourse! But if had to choose, then Matt, the Bourne Movies were great!
I think that Taylor should defintely model himself, as he has an awesome background in martial arts and doing action filled movies. To take himself to the next level, I would say that he should gain inspriation from the prior greats, such as Will Smith, Brue Willis, Harrison Ford and you can't forget Steven Seagal (the early years). I thinkg that this is defintely just the beginning for him and as I'm sure all of you are....I'm here for the ride!!! Did I say that he's HOT!!!
Taylor should not copy or model himself after anyone else. He's new, fresh and relevant just the way he is and to follow in anyone else's footsteps would only have people constantly comparing him to others. But even at 19, I think taylor knows this already and is too smart and talented to be anyone but his wonderful self.
I think Taylor has the awesomeness in him to be just as much of a bad-*** as Bruce Willis, he's got the skills to do his own stunts like the Jackie Chan, muscles for day (great physique and ability),tons of charisma to attract the crowds of ladies (and men too) just like Big Willie (Will Smith) especially if he sets off to do like Will did for a few years: having hot summer blockbusters. Taylors would close off Summer and kick off the Fall movie watching season! Loved abduction is was so action-packed and there is definitely tons to go from here. I hope his movie fares well against MoneyBall. Oh, and he's not too shabby on the eyes either!!
The thing to consider about Taylor Lautner is that he has already begun his action career in an avidly fanned series. Matt Damon has a very particular style of action to which he is best suited, as do most successful action stars, but I think that is unneccesarily limiting. Val Kilmer would be a good model for Lautner. He may not be as successful in every endeavor, but his endeavors are incredibly varied and his successes are great. It results in a wide range of experience, and his fan base would follow him anywhere regardless.
Taylor should and I believe will his own model simply because he has so much potentional and many fans already follow him as Taylor Lautner. But I if was to protray someone else it should definitely be Matt Damon!! absolutely....
I think Taylor can tips from each of the great action movie stars, including Arnold, Matt, Bruce and Stallone, but he needs to put his own personality stamp on his roles just like those guys did.
Mario Lopez... dedication to his work, he's always paying attention to special detail, making sure he is delivering quality work, and to top it off Taylor has the gorgeous look that everyone admires in Mario.
Will Smith....classy, funny and a family man!
Definitely himself.. He's too pretty to try and model himself after someone else. And this would be better in the long run, because people want to see him act, not him acting as someone else.
Matt Damon or Mark Walberg...they are great.
Maybe spice it up a little and learn a few moves from Jackie Chan or Jet Le and shock Hollywood!!!!!!!!
He should be his own .Do his own thing.Make everything on his own.Then when he makes it it will be his only.
I think Taylor should be himself...he LOOK'S awesome can't wait to see the movie.
matt, of course.
Be himself first but if anyone Bruce Willis is still the man his many years as a versitile actor makes him the one to follow.
"Welcome to the party, pal."

"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
