I almost choked on my mimosa after reading that Taylor Lautner will be playing porn star Dirk Diggler (originally made famous by Mark Wahlberg in the 1997 classic Boogie Nights), but quickly gained composure when I heard that it’s just a reading… and he would be keeping his shirt on the whole time. Booo!
Tay will be participating in Jason Reitman’s live reading of the sexy flick at Film Independent at LACMA on Thursday night. Interestingly enough, a similar reading happened at the Toronto Film Festival last month and Jesse Eisenberg played the role of Dirk. I can only imagine how awkward that was.
Do you think Taylor will make this role super sexy, or is there no point in watching him act if his shirt isn’t off? Tell me in a comment below!
