Taylor Lautner: Adorable asskicker in 2005

taylor-lautner-2005_lChances are, I will never watch Robert Rodriguez’s The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D. However, I have now watched the video of Taylor Lautner promoting the 2005 film on Access Hollywood by showcasing his extreme martial arts skills three times. Seriously impressive and screaming GYMKATA REMAKE! (No, I’m not ready to let that dream go.)

Watch that video after the jump, then check out two more clips in which young Lautner discusses his first-degree black belt (“I like this belt,” he giggles, “It’s like silk”) and how difficult it is when your focus is constantly shifting between school and filming (“So you’re just getting into it, Okay, that’s what those Indians did when they came to the States, ‘Oh, Taylor Lautner to set!'”).

Team Jacob!

    i love your gymkata obsession…

  • BP

    Speaking as a martial artist. That kid is good!!!

  • TheObserver

    Gymkata…no..but in a bourne spin off where he plays jason bournes son or something..yes…he and matt damon kinda sort of look alike…although that pairing might cause movie screens to spontaeously combust due to all that hotness.

  • harry

    action star for real!!!!

  • UGH

    That was him in that horrible movie.
    The trend for him continues…

    • DANIELa

      Your crazy hes hot hotter than ever!!!

  • Anna

    Definitely a skilled martial artist…but perhaps a little overzealous with the screaming?? :c/

  • Karena

    If I hear or read ‘Taylor Lautner’ one more time, I’m going to………..never mind-all I want to say is I don’t understand all the fuss over this dweebie looking toad faced runt! He’s about as handsome as my dachsund from the rear. Actually, the dog looks better.

    • Christine

      karena, I could not have said it any better. He is NOT attractive!!

    • MonoK

      He’s 17. He’s still a kid. Give him a break. There’s no reason to be mean. Let’s all leave him alone until he’s 19 or so, okay? He’s an actor trying to make a living. If he’s still working when he’s 19 or 20, then fire away.

    • James S.

      Yeah, because another year is gonna make a difference. He’s still won’t be hot.

    • karina

      u wish ur dog was better but the thruth is that taylor is ten times better and u know it:),but u just think that ur cooler than that but u r not!!!!! :(

  • cap

    I’ll be the last to admit that when my son watches “Sharkboy”…yeah, I’ll watch the whole thing with him, lol. It’s not a masterpiece, but it hits right on with its target audience – kids who dream of being heroes. And this kid kicks butt!

  • Andrew

    Yeah, he can kick Edwards pasty white butt.

  • Maureen

    Holy crap!

  • Cole9219

    I am scared.

    • Sarah D

      So was I!! He reminds me of Ernie Reyes Jr. So impressive!

  • Sarah

    This is so cute (and a little frightening). Love his posing for the camera, also.

  • Agustina

    My sister is going to die when she sees it (?)

  • Shana

    LOVE HIM! hahaha 2005 I remember he was in cheaper by the dozen 2(not a good movie) that was the only thing I saw him in before Twilight.

  • clairie

    He is a cutie pie.
