But let’s set aside visions of a rebounding Taylor Lautner for a moment to focus on what really matters: the romance. Specifically, which pretty young thing will play the hunk’s lady love? That would be Marie Avgeropoulos.
The casting news comes via Deadline, who reports the 27-year-old actress will join the project as a skater girl (not to be confused with a Sk8er Girl), who runs with a group of thugs and eventually lures Taylor’s Cam into a dangerous love triangle.
You may recognize Marie from turns on “The Inbetweeners” and “Cult,” while she can be seen next in the mid-season sci-fi series “The 100” on The CW.
For his part, Taylor will show off a very different part of his anatomy—his funny bone!—in the upcoming “Grown Ups 2,” alongside Adam Sandler.
