Taylor Lautner has proved that he's Hollywood's hottest new leading man.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Lautner, 17, will star in the upcoming sci-fi action flick "Max Steel" about a 19-year-old who is recruited by a secret agency after an accident leaves him with superhuman powers. The story is based on a Mattel franchise, and will be produced by Joe Roth.
The "New Moon" wolf won't have trouble portraying a superhero -- he already has a leading man's body! Lautner packed on 30 pounds of muscle to film the "Twilight" sequel.
"The Twilight Saga: New Moon" is in theatres now.
