Who Dumped Taylor Lautner For Liam Hemsworth? (Hint: Not Miley!)
What do you do when you have two of Hollywood’s hunkiest actors like Taylor Lautner and Liam Hemsworth to choose from? It’s a hard decision, but someone’s got to make it! While Taylor has his hot Twilight past, Liam has his Hunger Games juice to take him even further – so much so that Taylor reportedly got dropped from the upcoming flick The Expendables 2! Who would do such a thing?! Nope, it’s not Liam’s fiancee Miley Cyrus... it’s the studio for the upcoming flick who picked Liam over Taylor!
Hollywood Life reports that Taylor was offered the role in the movie at first but decided to pass on the offer, while contrary reports say it’s actually Taylor’s acting that really cost him the role in the end.
“Taylor was initially going to get the role in The Expendables 2, but his film Abduction did so poorly in the box office [it only grossed $28 million domestically] and critically that they chose Liam instead,” a source says.
The Expendables 2 hits theaters August 17.
Do you think Liam was the better choice, or did they make a mistake on passing on Taylor?
