For a teen wolf, Taylor Lautner has some big ambitions.
Working to make the transition from tween heart throb in the ‘Twilight’ series to a more serious actor, his director in the upcoming thriller ‘Abduction’ gave him a lofty role model to watch: Tom Cruise.
“I told him to watch the transition from ‘Top Gun’ to ‘Rain Man’ to ‘Born on the Fourth of July,'” director John Singleton told The Los Angeles Times. “To think about what he did as a young man and what he did later on. And then think about what you want to do.”
