He may have missed out on the opportunity to play Stretch Armstrong, but Taylor Lautner is still afforded the chance to play a character with at least one elongated extremity. Vampire baby-f*cker is set to slip into the role of Dirk Diggler, for Jason Reitman‘s live reading of Boogie Nights at Film Independent at LACMA on Thursday night. There is no word who will be playing the part of Diggler’s penis.
He’ll be joined by Judy Greer, who will take over the role Amber Waves, the character made famous by Julianne Moore. Mae Whitman will play Rollergirl, Kevin Pollak will be The Colonel, Jim Rash will take on Buck Swope, Jarod Einsohn will be Todd Parker and Jurnee Smollett will play Jessie St. Vincent.
Last month at the Toronto International Film Festival, Reitman held another Boogie Nights reading that sounded much more enjoyable with Jesse Eisenberg as Diggler and Olivia Wilde as Amber Waves. (E!)
