With Taylor Lautner Out, Who Should Play Stretch Armstrong?

|

Today, Team Jacob loyalists got the sad news that Taylor Lautner’s glorious abs will not be seen contorted into weird shapes for our viewing pleasure. The Wrap reported that he’s dropped out of Stretch Armstrong due to scheduling conflicts. The flick based on the ’70s toy, was originally going to be made by Hasbro and Universal for release this year, but Relativity Media announced today that it will be partnering with Hasbro to make the movie, with an April 2014 release date. According to MTV News, the schedule conflict is with Taylor’s plans to make a Gus Van Sant movie. We’ll give you a minute to get over this disappointment, but then, we want you to cheer up and help us come up with Taylor’s replacement. The movie is said to be an origin story, along the lines of Iron Man, but no age range has really been given, leaving this wide open for all the hot actors we fantasy-casting dreamers have been proposing for everything from Spider-Man to Hunger Games. Of course, some of us here at TheFABlife want Hunter Parrish for all of the movies, but we’d also be open to another werewolf — say The Vampire Diaries’ Michael Trevino? Or how about The Mortal Instruments’ also-ran Alex Pettyfer? Maybe this could be Harry Potter alum Matthew Lewis’ big break, or our chance to see more of Miley CyrusLOL co-star Douglas Booth. Well, here’s your chance to pick a candidate for the silliest-named superhero of them all:
