Teen heartthrob Taylor Lautner talks his new action film 'Abduction', 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn'
Carrying a film on his own for the first time in his young career
He had to know we were gonna ask. After all, when you're sitting down with Taylor Lautner, questions about "Twilight" are basically mandatory. Indeed, his star-making turn as werewolf Jacob Black in the blockbuster vamp franchise is the reason why he's now found himself as the star of his own action movie. Speaking of that...
We sat down with Lautner to discuss his latest film "Abduction", a John Singleton-directed action vehicle due out this Friday. The Lion's Gate thriller has the 19-year-old starring as Nathan Price, a tough-as-nails high school kid whose life is turned upside down after he discovers one of his childhood photos on a missing person's website.

During our conversation, Lautner discussed the pressures of taking on his first major starring role outside the "Twilight" series, performing his own daredevil stunts, starring opposite screen greats including Sigourney Weaver and Alfred Molina, and whether his hardcore fans can expect any sly "Twilight" references to crop up in the new film.
In other "Twilight"-related bits, Lautner talked about the response he'd gotten from people regarding the recently-released "Breaking Dawn" trailer, and whether he'll be glad to finally put the role of Jacob Black behind him.
"Abduction" opens in theaters September 23rd.
