Taylor Lautner is NOT Wolverine!

Ok so the Romour from yesterday that Taylor Lautner was going to play a young wolverine in X-Men: first class has been shot down by Producer Bryan Singer. apparently he Singer and Fox wanted Taylor to be a part of the movie but the young actors schedule was too busy to allow it to happen.

Bryan Singer said:

I wanted Taylor to do it, I really did. He’s doing a movie in Pittsburgh called ‘Abduction’ and then he’s got the next ‘Twilight’ movie. We talked about it a lot, he is a friend, and I really wanted to make it work. It just doesn’t look like it’s possible to do it.

Hopefully the Idea of a young Wolverine in First Class will be dropped as it will only confuse the movie going public and muddy what could be a great film without the tiny Canadian brawler.

  1. Huge Jackass was barely an acceptable Wolverine, Taylor Lautner can’t act let alone roar!

      i don’t know? i think hugh Jackman did a good job (apart from being a foot and a half too tall!)

        I agree with Matt (aside from on the height issue; he’s only a foot too tall XD ). When I heard Jackman was to play Wolverine (and later Liev Schrieber to play Sabertooth) I was mortified. Dude’s a musical star! And yet… he did a good job. He’s a bit too pretty, but that’s Hollywood for yah.
