Following the success of “MTV First: Robert Pattinson” last month, another “Twilight” heartthrob will be taking over the channel. “MTV First: Taylor Lautner” is set to premiere on air and online Wednesday, April 13, at 7:56 p.m. ET, when the 19-year-old star will exclusively debut the first trailer from his upcoming action/thriller “Abduction.”
Following the trailer premiere, Lautner will continue the conversation on MTV.com during a 30-minute chat with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz. But we won’t be the only one asking questions — fans will also have a chance to toss in their own queries. So if there’s something you’ve been dying to know about Lautner, now’s your chance. Just submit your questions on MTV.com or via Twitter (using @MTVNews and the hashtag #AskTaylor).
With a week to go before this exclusive event, we’ll be diving into our extensive Taylor Lautner archive — stretching back to our first “Twilight” set visit in 2008 — and counting down our favorite MTV moments with the young star. Be sure to check back every day for the latest clip.
It’s all leading up to Wednesday’s “Abduction” trailer debut. Lautner stars as a teen who stumbles upon his baby picture on a missing-persons website. As he reaches out to his birth parents, Lautner finds himself caught up in a world of underground spies and death-defying stunts. Joining him in the flick are Lily Collins , Alfred Molina, Sigourney Weaver, Jason Isaacs and Maria Bello.
“I love action, but most important is the story, and the story behind this action/thriller is amazing,” Lautner told us last summer. “We got [director] John Singleton behind us. … I’m so thankful we’re getting a cast like that.”
Check out everything we’ve got on “Abduction.”
