Taylor Lautner Cast in BBC 3′s ‘Cuckoo’

Taylor Lautner

Lots of rumours and dubious sources have been claiming that Taylor, who turned 22 yesterday, is to replace Andy Samberg in the BAFTA nominated 2nd series of Cuckoo. We’ve had our eye on this so when the Radio Times reported it we took notice.

In some rather unexpected casting news, Hollywood actor Taylor Lautner has replaced Andy Samberg in the cast of BBC3 comedy Cuckoo.

The second series of the Bafta-nominated comedy – starring Greg Davies and Helk out the rest of the articleen Baxendale as Ken and Lorna Thompson – will pick up two years after Cuckoo (Samberg) flew the coop to continue researching his book, going missing in the foothills of the Himalayas. Eventually presumed dead, he left behind his grieving wife – the Thompsons’ daughter Rachel.

UK Twilight Turns Back The Clock: This Time Last Year – Breaking Dawn Part 2 UK Premiere.

20131114-175848.jpg

Can anyone remember what you were doing this time last year? We certainly can. The majority of UK Twilight (SamWard, Dani and myself) had camped for two days and one night and waited for the UK/European Premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Elaine didn’t have to camp. The lucky duck got a press pass for UK Twilight and got a nice front row view.

It was a pretty emotional experience for me. Wasn’t the best premiere I’d attended that’s for sure – but I’ll never forget it. I’m glad we attended.

We saw Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner as well as the dashing Jamie Campbell Bower, Judi Shekoni and MyAnna Buring.

I know lots of you watched it on the live feed – hopefully you got a good view. Some awesome person managed to grab a screen shot of Dani and I with Rob signing.

How on earth has it been a year already? I don’t know about anyone else – but I’m still not ready for it to be “the end”.

Twilight Forever.

Taylor Lautner promotes Bench in the Philippines

Taylor Lautner recently paid a visit to the Philippines, to promote his campaign with Bench clothing.

Whilst in the Philippines for the short time that he was, Taylor done two mall visits to meet his fans! Also, he sat down and talked to Ricky Lo of Philstar Entertainment about his new film, Tracers (2014), clothes and what he learnt from working on Twilight .

So aside from promoting Bench, are you looking forward to doing anything else?

Besides promoting Bench I’m looking forward to seeing my fans. Tomorrow, I’m doing two mall visits so I’ll be able to see as many fans as possible in my more than 60 hours here.”

Of course, you’re wearing Bench.

“Yes, of course. I love it!”

Ordinarily, what kind of clothes do you prefer?

“I’m pretty simple. Most importantly, I like to be comfortable and I really like jeans and boots and T-shirts. That’s why I like Bench so much. It’s pretty simple; you can dress it up or dress it down, which are nice options.”

If you were to impress a girl, what would you wear from head to foot?

(Laughing) “I would probably do something simple. If I were trying to impress a girl, I wouldn’t get all super dressed because I would look like I was trying too hard. Instead, I would probably wear what I normally would.”

Let’s talk about your career. Was it hard for you to shake off your Twilight character Jacob Black?

“Right, right! It may be hard because so many fans love that character and they love the franchise but I’m okay with it. I mean, I also love that character and the franchise as well. It’s something my fans and I share. But of course, as an actor I want to move on and do different things and I thank the franchise for allowing me to do that. I just wrapped up the movie Tracers.”

You’re doing well as an action star. In one scene in Tracers, you refused a “double” and you did your own stunt by jumping from a bridge in New York. That was pretty risky!

(Laughing again) “Yeah, that was pretty risky! It was an awesome experience, completely different from anything I’ve done before. The script is very character-driven and that’s what attracted me to it. On top of all that, I got to do some awesome stunts.”

What did you learn from the Twilight Saga that you are applying now as an action star?

“Uhm, I think working with all the directors in the Twilight Saga and even my cast mates…you learn different little things from everyone and you apply that to the work that you do later.”

Breaking Dawn Part 2 Scoops SEVEN Awards in the Teen Choice Awards 2013.

Teen-Choice-201315

 

Last night in the US, saw the results of the Fox networks 2013 Teen Choice Awards. As mentioned in our previous post, the cast and the film was nominated for no less than NINE awards in eight categories.

See the previous post, with a full listing of all the Saga’s nominations HERE. 

The show was hosted by Glee’s Darren Criss and Pretty Little Liars Lucy Hale at the Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles.  There was initially a live stream we could watch over here in the UK, but it cut out. Thankfully some very helpful girls SamWard found via Instagram were kind enough to run an ustream so it could be watched.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 literally wiped the floor, winning seven of the nine nominations, although due to the fact that the announcements were not made when the show was on air, because there was no cast in attendance to accept the awards.

Robert Pattinson won Best Actor in a Movie Romance

Taylor Lautner won Best Actor in a Movie Sci-Fi/Fantasy (Robert was also nominated.)

Kristen Stewart won Best Actress in a Movie Romance AND Best Actress in Sci-Fi/Fantasy

Kellan Lutz won the award for Best Scene Stealer

Breaking Dawn Part 2 also won its two categories it was nominated in – Best Movie Romance and Best Movie Sci-Fi/Fantasy.

One award has still yet to be announced, and that was Best Liplock, which Kristen and Rob were nominated for, Edward and Bella being re-united, with Bella being a vampire in Breaking Dawn Part two. We’ll keep you updated if anything comes up.

Sadly (and after staying up and not getting to sleep until just past four this morning!) because there was no cast attendance, there are no nice new pictures of our favourite trio to give you. Above is from last years Teen Choice Awards.

Thank you to everyone who voted this time around, it all counted, and although I’m sure many of you will be upset about Breaking Dawn not getting the acknowledgement it deserves this year, be glad that even after all this time, and five films, it still comes out on top every single time. Twilight will always be #1.

I stole this from my Facebook feed this morning, and I have to agree this morning…

 

Don’t cry because it’s over – smile because it happened.

Taylor Lautner Talks Grown Ups 2 and Life after Jacob

”I don’t want to be like ‘OK, in order to get rid of the ‘Twilight’ thing I have to do this now…’ he said. “It wasn’t a planned out thing. When I finished the franchise I wasn’t like ‘Oh, I gotta do a comedy now.’ I knew I wanted to do something different, but then it all made sense. I mean Adam randomly asked to meet with me, and I hadn’t met him before so I was intimidated… He was like ‘Hey I’m doing my first sequel ever, and I would love for you to be a part of it and do a fun cameo in it.’ I was thrilled. I mean it was such an honour coming from him. I’ve grown up my whole life watching all of his movies. And then I was like ‘You know what, that would be really cool. It’s something I’ve never really done before. Totally different. It would be a challenge for me.”
