Taylor Lautner is having a moment. What kind of moment, we’re not quite sure—but it’s a moment, nonetheless. After months under the radar, the former Twilight heartthrob popped up yesterday in the trailer for Adam Sandler’s ridiculous-looking Netflix comedy, the aptly titled The Ridiculous Six. Lautner’s part as a buck-toothed yokel is obviously meant to kick-start his stagnant movie career by subverting his reputation as a walking, talking mannequin and reinvinting himself as someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously.
Cue phase two in the reinvention of Taylor Lautner. The actor recently showed up at a bar in Nashville acting all wild and crazy, first by singing Journey’s karaoke classic “Don’t Stop Believin,’” and then by using a drumstick like a microphone. Taylor Lautner knows how to have fun, and he wants the world to know it.
