Taylor Lautner teasing “Twilight,” “Abduction” on MTV

By Sean O’Connell Taylor Lautner hopes there is life after “The Twilight Saga.”

Just like Robert Pattinson, who will open “Water for Elephants” opposite Reese Witherspoon on April 22, Lautner is lining up future projects that in theory will open introduce the actor to new audiences.

Tonight, we’ll get our first look at Lautner’s latest. The heartthrob will tease “Abduction,” a thriller he made with director John Singleton, during an MTV special titled “MTV First: Taylor Lautner.” During the special, Lautner will participate in a Q-and-A session featuring questions from fans e-mailed from their homes.

“Abduction” sounds like an interesting departure, casting Lautner as a confused teenager who goes in search of his true identity after seeing his baby picture on a missing person’s Web site. The film, which opens on Sept. 23, also stars Lily Collins, Alfred Molina, Maria Bello and Sigourney Weaver.

As for the “Twilight” series, Lautner does open up and tell MTV, “My job for ‘Twilight’ was to bring ‘Twilight’ Jacob to life—the friendly, happy-go-lucky little Jacob. And my job for ‘New Moon’ was completely different; I’ve been looking forward to that. I’ve been getting ready for it, and I can assure them that I will follow through with that job.”

But soon, “Twilight” will fade, and Lautner will be abducted. Well, not literally, we hope. For his sake.

“MTV First: Taylor Lautner” airs on MTV and on April 13 at 7:56 p.m. ET.
