“Twilight” fans are going to loooove this one.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Taylor Lautner is now in negotiations to make a cameo in Adam Sandler’s forthcoming comedy “Grown Ups 2.”
If all goes well the hunky actor would join much of the cast from the 2010 original: Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Maya Rudolph and Salma Hayek.
The magazine cites sources who say he'd play a “fun” role, during which he’d go up against Sandler himself.
Lautner could apparently use a few laughs. His first pic post-“Twilight,” “Abduction,” didn’t do so well at the box office in the U.S., even though it did make $82 million worldwide.
Being attached to a comedic vehicle that initially grossed $162 million domestically and $271 million worldwide is decidedly good for the funny bone.
There’s also, of course, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," the final installment in the series, that comes out this November.
