Bryan Singer Wanted Taylor Lautner... for New X-Men Movie

Director/Producer Bryan Singer, who is now shepherding X-Men: First Class into production, had apparently wanted Eclipse star Taylor Lautner to play a mutant in the new prequel to the X-Men film series, but it wasn't possible due to scheduling.

"I wanted Taylor [Lautner] to do it, I really did," Singer said in an interview with Blastr. "He's doing a movie in Pittsburgh called 'Abduction' and then he's got the next 'Twilight' movie. We talked about it a lot, he is a friend, and I really wanted to make it work. It just doesn't look like it's possible to do it."

While Lautner's sexual orientation is his own business, he's apparently become a new object of affection to the gay community.
