Taylor Lautner's Next Role Is a 'Stretch'

Get ready to see a lot more of Taylor Lautner!

A source for Universal Studios has revealed that the Twilight hottie will be playing the role of Hasbro action figure Stretch Armstrong, in the new movie based on the toy.

"In the past two years, Taylor has emerged as a real star at the global box office," says movie studio cochair Donna Langley. "He brings the perfect balance of energy and athleticism to the role of an unlikely super hero with a fantastic super power. We couldn't be more pleased that he has agreed to be our Stretch."

And if Lautner as a limber superhero doesn't do it for you in two dimensions, you're in luck! Stretch Armstrong, which is scheduled to open spring 2012, will be shot in 3-D.
