What He’s Done: It’s hard to believe Lautner is only 19, given how famous — and inescapable — he’s become over the last four years. The Michigan native got his big break playing Jacob Black in the mega-lucrative ‘Twilight’ franchise, but his first two films were a bit less teen-fan-friendly: ‘Cheaper by the Dozen 2′ and ‘The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3D.’ Lautner most recently starred in ‘Abduction,’ his first foray as a leading man away from the ‘Twilight’ franchise. The low-budget Lionsgate release has earned $56 million worldwide since its release in September.
What’s Next: The final two installments of ‘Twilight,’ with the first — ‘Breaking Dawn Part One’ — out in November. Lautner has been rumored for a number of projects — including ‘Stretch Armstrong,’ ‘Goliath’ with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and a possible sequel to ‘Abduction’ — but so far he hasn’t committed to anything else.
Did You Know? In addition to acting, karate, sports and hip-hop dance, Lautner also took jazz lessons in high school.
