Twilight Cast Update: Lautner and Kendrick Score New Roles

Anna Kendrick and Taylor Lautner seem to be the two New Moon stars vying most likely to succeed: both have just been cast in upcoming, high profile projects.

Taylor Lautner will be sharing the screen with none other than Tom Cruise in Northern Lights as a "gifted, young, aerobatics pilot who faces off with his controlling, billionaire father and falls in love with a gifted, female pilot." Cruise would play his father, which is not the least of the surprises; Lautner is also reportedly earning $7.5 million, according to Nikki Finke, which would make him the highest-paid teen in Hollywood.

Meanwhile, Kendrick, riding high on her success and awards buzz with Up in the Air (loved her? Vote for her on our ballot!) , has sewn up a role in Seth Rogen's dramedy based on the book I'm With Cancer. The It Girl's role is as a young, inexperienced psychologist who helps James McAvoy with his disease and recovery. First Robert Pattinson and Clooney, now James McAvoy? Even if she doesn't get that Oscar nomination, she's already won the best-lookin' costars.

i love that anna had one of the smallest (and most annoying) parts in twilight and now she is getting all these great reviews and really great roles....as opposed to rom-coms and horror films like the rest of the cast.

Apparently she already had Tony noms in tow prior to Twilight and Up in the Air. Looks like her career can only go up from here!

Buzz- I think you need to pull out that poll you did a while back on which Twilight cast member was going to be in the next big motion picture. I think a lot of people voted Rob and Kristen and some Nikki but not many I think voted these 2 and Anna clearly won that title!

These are the only two young actors in the Twilight series that I actually like. And Anna can act.
