NextMovie has given The Twilight Saga cast members including Ashely Greene, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, and Kellan Lutz, giving them power rankings as to what their future careers might be like, post Twilight.
2. Robert Pattinson
Floor: Christian Slater
Ceiling: Johnny Depp
My younger readers may balk at a Christian Slater comparison, but in the early ’90s his poster hung on young girls’ walls – right next to Kurt Cobain and Luke Perry. Slater never broke out of his teen heartthrob stage as Johnny Depp did after “21 Jump Street.” Pattinson should keep looking for unique roles as Depp has and not settle for easy schlock as Slater did.
4. Taylor Lautner
Floor: Richard Grieco
Ceiling: Mario Lopez
Lautner got his opportunity to star in his own action movie, just like former teen star Richard Grieco did in “If Looks Could Kill.” “Abduction” did about as well as Grieco’s movie, which the world has since forgotten about ever existing. Lautner’s fate may be similar unless he admits to himself that he’s not a great actor and his strength is being the likable guy with dimples and an uncertain ethnic background. Mario Lopez has turned that into a career, after all.
