The Word: From 'Twilight' to porn (sort of): Taylor Lautner's new gig

It makes a certain amount of sense that Taylor Lautner's next post-"Twilight" gig would be kinda porny. Pornier than "Twilight," that is.

The most employable part of Taylor Lautner has always been his abs. And of course, "Twilight" made ample use of his were-torso. So it makes a certain amount of sense that his next post-"Twilight" gig would be kinda porny. Even pornier than "Twilight," that is.

Not that Lautner is actually set to be the next Ron Jeremy. Just the next Mark Wahlberg. According to E! Online, he'll do a reading of the 1997 film "Boogie Nights," taking Mark Wahlberg's role, Dirk Diggler, in the porn fable. He'll be joined by Judy Greer as Amber Waves and Mae Whitman as Rollergirl (really?)

The reading, organized by Jason Reitman, will be at Film Independent at LACMA in Los Angeles tomorrow night, so if you've ever wanted to see Taylor Lautner talk about being a porn star whilst remaining fully clothed, get your butt over there.

While the former Jacob Black is running around doing trendy readings, his "Twilight" costar Kristen Stewart commands six figures just to hang out for a few minutes.

In aNew York Timesarticle on Harvey Weinstein, the film mogul mentions that he managed to line up a Saudi prince who promised to make a sizable donation to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts — if Kristen Stewart would hang out with him. When Weinstein got in touch with her, she had a question: How much?

Weinstein drove a hard bargain, settling on $500,000, paid in advance. Stewart then agreed to hang out with the prince for 15 minutes.
