Taylor Lautner’s got a challenge escaping the giant shadow of his ‘Twilight’ character Jacob, but he’s made a good stab by taking on something totally different in ‘Grown Ups 2’.
He plays Frat Boy Andy, leader of a group of ‘townie-hating’ college jocks. Basically his character is horrible – he does backflips for no reason – and he’s the antagonist to Adam Sandler and his gang of middle-aged pals (Chris Rock, Kevin James and David Spade). Several critics reckon our Taylor steals every scene he’s in.
It’s the total opposite to the nice-but-dim Jacob from ‘Twilight’, but was this deliberate? We asked the star (watch him above).
We also asked him the classic job interview question: where do you see yourself in ten year’s time?
“Geez-Louise. Look I hope I’m just still doing this. I really hope so, because this is what I love to do and I still can’t believe I’m sitting here today. It all still feels like a dream. So I hope that you know, I’ve done some different movies, I hope I’ve done some dramas, some action movies, some comedies, and I’m still able to work with people like this and I’m still learning. I believe you can never stop learning, so I hope I’m still learning 10 years down the road.”
‘Grown Ups 2′ is released in the UK on 9 August.
