Where do you go from here?
Reportedly, Taylor is busy studying the films of Tom Cruise because he highly admires the successful movie star and would like to enjoy a similar career.
While on the set of Abduction, Lautner has learned from director John Singleton. The director told the Los Angeles Times, “I told him to watch the transition from Top Gun to Rain Man to Born on the Fourth of July. To think about what he (Cruise) did as a young man and what he did later on. And then think about what you want to do.”
“Twilight is a great stepping stone for his (Lautner’s) career,” Singleton added. ”It’s like, ‘Wow, he’s an icon already.’ But now that you have this stature, it’s a question of what you do with it. And that’s what he’s been working hard on.”
