Taylor says Rob doesn't need workout advice


Before heading into the show, MTV News talked to Taylor about the trailer, which features him shirtless most of the time.

"I think they might start crying," he guessed about what he thought might be the fans' reaction to seeing him as werewolf Jacob Black running around with his wolf pack. But Lautner isn't the only one Twilighters got an eyeful of in the trailer - Robert Pattinson also appears sans shirt. And Lautner insist that if the two were to compete in some kind of shirt-off the competition would be stiff. " I don't know [who wold win]. Rob, he's getting some muscle," he explained. "There's some good competition." Lautner famously had to pack on the muscle to repise his role as Jacob. So we wondered if Pattinson has been seeking advice from him on how to bulk up. "No, he definitely doesn't need any pointers at all," Lautner joked. "He's got it covered."

In addition to talking about all things "New Moon" trailer, Lautner opened up about what it's been like on-set for the movie's sequel, "Eclipse." "yes it's a lot of fun," he said. "I think we're, like, a month in, so it's exciting to be back with our new director David Slade and back with the whole team again."

Slade is the third director to helm a "Twilight" flick, and Lautner admits that he's got a whole new dark take on the saga. "It's been good. He's a lot different, but I think he's going to add a cool tast to the movie," he explained. "It might be a little darker."

And Lautner thinks Slade will take the action in this flick, which involves a lot of battling, to the next step. "I feel like the action level is stepping up each and every film. 'New Moon' definitely has a lot more [action] than 'Twilight' and I feel like Eclipse is bumping it up another level," the actor said.

Sure Lautner is cool with the films going in that direction. But he's not so cool with the fact that he doesn't get to partake in that action as much as he would like in "Eclipse." "We're at war the whole time or most of the time. I think it's going to be pretty good but it's a bummer 'cause I'm a wolf the whole time, so it's not actually me getting to do my action....but you'll be able to see the cute fuzzy wolf."
