Taylor Lautner: The Matchmaker?

With the impressive box office numbers for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 this weekend, it doesn’t seem like Taylor Lautner would need to worry about a job. But if he ever needed a backup plan, Taylor could definitely look into becoming a matchmaker – he seems to have the experience!

Taylor’s Twilight co-star Nikki Reed tells The New York Daily News that Taylor “seems to think he deserves a lot of credit” for her relationship with American Idol contestant Paul McDonald, whom she married last month.

Apparently Taylor is a major fan of Idol and convinced Nikki to start watching and following the show. When she met Paul at the Little Red Riding Hood premiere last March, Nikki was fully prepared on everything American Idol, thanks to Taylor.

Nikki and Paul were married October 16th in a small, intimate wedding in Malibu, CA.

Do you think Taylor Lautner has a future in matchmaking? If Taylor wasn’t an actor, what do you think he should or would be doing?
