Taylor Launter and Anna Kenrick are on Moviefones Top 10 Breakout Stars of 2009
1. Taylor Lautner
Royally buffing up as the shapeshifting werewolf Jacob Black in the sequel ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon,’ Taylor Lautner redefines teenage hunk in his breakout role. Graduating from Bella’s long-haired admirer in the first film, Lautner is able to flex his muscles, quite literally, with a much larger, brooding part in the second vampire flick. There is a reason why Taylor beat out the rest of the notable names on this list for the top spot: sheer box office brawn. The Twihards have spoken: Team Jacob all the way — well, for now at least.
Next Up: Reprising his role as Jacob Black in ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.’
7. Anna Kendrick
Anna Kendrick has a lot going for her. She co-stars in that hit film series ‘Twilight,’ and just snagged a National Board of Review prize for her naively overconfident, quick-witted turn as a newbie firing-agent in Jason Reitman’s ‘Up in the Air.’ At only 24, Kendrick has proved to be a mighty talent in both comedy and drama, garnering a heap of Oscar buzz going toe-to-toe with George Clooney in ‘Air.’
Next Up: Edgar Wright’s ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ and, of course, reprising her role as Jessica in ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.’

Nikki Finke of Deadline Hollywood has the exclusive story of Taylor Lautner
getting the lead role in Max Steel, Paramounts upcoming action movie.
Paramount has confirmed to me exclusively that it’s hired 8-pack-abs Taylor Lautner for the lead in Max Steel, instantly creating perhaps the next young big action star.
I’m told Max Steel will be a four-quadrant popcorn movie in the spirit of Iron Man about a 19-year-old extreme sports junkie recruited by a secret agency after an accident infects his body, leaving him with superhuman powers.
