FROM MTV.COM: That smile! That ever-present tan! Those abs! In just a few short months, Taylor Lautner has gone from the little kid in "Twilight" to the man in "New Moon" to the heartthrob wanted by millions of fans — and all of Hollywood. Now, in the four months since the second "Twilight Saga" film made him a star, the 18-year-old has lined up an equal number of high-profile projects.
But which will stretch his acting talents? Which might make him as popular with boys as he is with girls? And which could launch a signature franchise outside of Stephenie Meyer's realm? For the answers to those and more questions, let's take a closer look at the upcoming slate of one of Hollywood's fastest-rising young stars.

"Twilight" watchers now have their pitch for which contestant to support in the "American Idol" finals. Apparently Didi Benami and actress Rachelle LeFevre go way back. LeFevre had a lot of vocal support when Bryce Dallas Howard replaced her as Victoria for "Eclipse," so it may be interesting to see if her followers are also impressionable "Idol" voters.
Heated though it may be, "American Idol" competition has had to go head-to-head with Winter Olympics competition this week, and Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn were on everyone's tweets last night. After the jump, you can check out who was watching, as well as who remains suspicious of Kevin Smith, who touched Rebecca Gayheart's baby and who's been hanging out on the set of "Thor." It's all in Twitter-Wood for February 18, 2010. Read More...
This is what you've been waiting for, Twilighters. You no longer have to wait until the "New Moon" DVD arrives on March 20 -- the Vernal Equinox! -- to catch your first, seven-minute glimpse of "Eclipse." The first trailer for the June 30 release will arrive a week earlier, on Friday, March 12, in front of the Robert Pattinson/Pierce Brosnan-starring family drama "Remember Me."
The word comes straight from Summit Entertainment, via their official "Twilight" Twitter feed. Exciting stuff, no? Hit the jump for the tweet text. Read More...
Last week, "New Moon" star Taylor Lautner celebrated his February 11 birthday. The "Twilight" werewolf turned 18, which means he's old enough to smoke and to die for his country. No drinking or gambling -- not legally, anyway -- but does it really matter? The kid can make an entire nation of young ladies swoon by simply removing his shirt.
In honor of Tay Tay's birthday, "Eclipse" actress Jodelle Ferland got a little creative. She captured the hunky actor's likeness in an impressively detailed pencil drawing, which is on display this morning as your Daily TwitPic. See for yourself after the jump. Read More...
Universal Pictures' revival of "The Wolfman" was unleashed into theaters everywhere today, and while the Benicio Del Toro-starring film is geared towards horror fans and monster movie enthusiasts, it might appeal to another unexpected crowd… "Twilight" fans.
Now, I'm not suggesting that "The Wolfman" is a teenage romance, nor is it necessarily appropriate for the younger viewers that flocked to "New Moon" in droves. What I am saying, however, is that there are certain aspects about the new thriller that could tickle the fancy of Team Jacob members everywhere. Read More...
Twitter Pic of the Day had a hefty lineup of contestants today, given Arnold Schwarzenegger's photo op with the Olympic torch for Vancouver, Emma Roberts' "Valentine's Day" shot with Jessica Alba in London and Emmy Rossum just hanging out on a boat. In the end, I had to tip the Twitter-Wood hat to Jodelle Ferland, though, who I am 90-percent sure sketched a picture of her "Twilight" series co-star Taylor Lautner.
Another member of the "Twilight" family, Anna Kendrick, showed up in the feed today too. You can find out what she has to be sad about since getting nominated for an Oscar after the jump, as well as what Jaime King looks like pregnant and how Eli Roth feels about "The Last Exorcism" not playing at South By Southwest. It's all in Twitter-Wood for February 12, 2010. Read More...
Remember back when we had "Twilight" faces showing up in the feed on a daily basis in Twitter-Wood? Well, they're all over the place doing things since "Eclipse" filmed and "New Moon" launched, and it's been a good two months since a TwitPic of Christian Serratos and Edi Gathegi showed up. But they reemerged today.
Lee Unkrich, meanwhile, has been a regular poster, showing off shots of the "Toy Story 3" cast as they've shown up to the studio to record. Yesterday, he got a visit from singer/songwriter Randy Newman, though, and he reports that a new song has been created -- presumably for the film. Make your own guesses and check out which "Hangover" actor is in a sling and which actor re-iterated that he's definitely returning for "Transformers 3" after the jump. It's all in Twitter-Wood for February 9, 2010. Read More...
Late last year, it was revealed that "Twilight" actress Ashley Greene would be starring in an upcoming thriller called "The Apparition." She would play one half of a couple who are responsible for letting loose a supernatural being after a college experiment goes awry. We learned later, at the beginning of January, that "Gossip Girl" star Sebastian Stan would headline alongside Greene.
Now another, equally high-profile name has joined the cast of "Apparition." None other than Tom Felton, a staple of Brian Warmoth's Twitter-Wood columns. You also might know him as Draco Malfoy from a little franchise called "Harry Potter." The news comes exclusively from ShockTillYouDrop, and you can find some more details after the jump.

Editor's note: After this article published, a dispute emerged over the authenticity of the Daily Record's interview with Robert Pattinson. Mr. Pattinson's representative informed MTV News that there was no interview with the publication. However, the Daily Record has since provided MTV News with an audio recording that apparently contains a portion of the interview in question. At press time, Pattinson's representative had not responded to further questions to clarify the source of the interview. MTV News regrets any error.
FROM MTV.COM: Following the November blockbuster release of "New Moon," Robert Pattinson has maintained a relatively low profile as he geared up to begin filming "Bel Ami" alongside Uma Thurman in Europe. That cloud of welcome anonymity is about to break, though, as the PR machine ramps up for another RPattz film release: the romantic drama "Remember Me."
In an interview with the Scottish Daily Record, Pattinson spoke of his paranoia about relationships, the eventual end of the "Twilight" series and some very intimate on-camera time he'll soon share with Thurman.

FROM MTV.COM: On Tuesday morning (February 2), Twilighters all over the world woke up to a new reality: One of their own is an Oscar-nominated thespian. In Stephenie Meyer's world, something tells us that Jessica Stanley wouldn't be able to stop talking about such an exciting development; in real life, however, Anna Kendrick is a bit more modest.
"I am thrilled beyond words to be nominated with these talented and inspiring women," the ebullient 24-year-old actress said in a statement after learning she had been nominated as Best Supporting Actress for her role in the George Clooney drama many consider to be among the best of the year. "Being involved in a film as special as 'Up in the Air' was a dream come true. I am overwhelmed and honored by this nomination and am so grateful to be able to share this experience with George, Vera [Farmiga] and [director] Jason [Reitman]."
