‘Hunger Games’ Liam Hemsworth joins ‘Expendables 2’, Taylor Lautner declines

He’s not interested

With as much buzz as Taylor Lautner has been getting when it comes to him being Hollywood’s next big action star, the ‘Twilight’ hunk doesn’t seem to be interested in moving in that direction.

Lautner is staring in the upcoming action flick ‘Abduction’ and even though action heavy weights like Sylvester Stallone have taken note of him, Taylor passed on the idea of being in the sequel to ‘The Expendables’.

‘The Expendables 2’ has lined up Hollywood’s biggest action heroes like Sylvester Stallone, Jean Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, but they were hoping to snag Lautner to bring some of the younger audience to theaters to check out the film.

Although Taylor turned down the offer to join the cast, one person that is definitely on board is ‘The Hunger Games’ star Liam Hemsworth.  He has been signed up to play a sniper in the ‘Expendables’ sequel and was actually slated to be in the first film too before his role got cut from the final script.

Are you going to check out ‘The Expendables 2’?  Are you glad that they are bringing in some fresh faces?  Leave us a comment and tell us what you think.
