Dec 4 2009OMG! Jacob Werewolf Might Be Max Steel!


Taylor Lautner, the Twilight sub-hunk whose shirtless torso you've probably seen more than your own in the last few months, may be entering yet another franchise that sounds terrible. The LA Times has news that the Down syndrome-faced teen is being considered for the lead in Max Steel:

Lautner would play Josh McGrath, a 19-year-old extreme-sports athlete who is accidentally exposed to the unleashed power of nanotechological machines, which become part of him and (in the old show, at least) give him increased strength, near-invulnerability and the ability to change his appearance.

If I ever go back in time and become a 10-year-old in 1992 again, I can't wait to see this totally radical movie! I hope this awesome character also likes neon shorts as much as I do!

Mark. Why must you describe my 90's childhood so cruelly well.

And yes. I watched a little bit of this when it first came out. It.... was not satisfactory. Like: "I'm totally skydiving! EXTREME SPORTS! Wowa, now I'm infected with nanomachines. Time to go on adventures!"

Man iI used to love that show.


"Down syndrome-faced teen"? Really? Don't hate him because he's prettier than you. Duche

The "Down syndrome-faced teen" is spot fucking on.

Sorry, I'm in the same boat as emjay. I'm not offended or anything. You just sound like a not so clever, jealous douche.

It's the lips.

"Down syndrome-faced teen" was a low blow. Fail man, really. Call him ugly or whatever, but that was unnecessary.

Perhaps if you don't like the description "down syndrome-faced teen," you might prefer - Retarded Man-Child. Kinda like Blaster. Better known as the retarded half of the dynamic duo Master Blaster.

oh for god's sakes, he doesn't look like he has the Down's. i don't know who that one insulted more. but it was most of all inaccurate. now paton oswalt, there's a self-confessed "downy troll"

Uhh, yeah, he DEFINITELY doesn't look like he has down's syndrome... He has great bone structure and a nice profile. And that was an awkward comment - it was quite rude as well as untrue.

mighty max >>>>>>>>>>>>>> max steel. I want a live action mighty max movie NOW!


It's the lips, i think.
