Let’s be real: We’ll always associate Taylor Lautner with the iconic role of Jacob Black from Twilight. But what would’ve happened if the actor didn’t get that role? Who would’ve gotten it instead? Turns out, there were a few actors who were considered, but ultimately, they lost the role to the “Abduction” star. Could you imagine how different the series would’ve been if he didn’t get the part?

In the case of Jacob Black, Taylor lucked out, but if we’re being honest, the Grown Ups 2 star hasn’t always been that lucky in terms of landing roles. In fact, there have been several parts he’s gone after that he eventually didn’t get. That’s right! The Scream Queens actor got beat out by several A-listers throughout his career, but sadly, that’s the nature of show business.
