    Duck and cover, I’m about to diss the power of Twilighters. While this guest-appearance might be footnote-worthy, I have to wonder about the so-called legions of fanged fandom who completely abandoned their boy, Taylor Lautner, when he had his own weekly series with Christian Slater, My Own Worst Enemy.

    Can someone explain the lack of support for “Jacob”….(who I, by the way, predict will steal the next movie altogether) ?

  • Nick,
    In defense of the Twilight fandom (words I never thought I’d say) — the movie, and Taylor Lautner were barely on the radar at the time of MY OWN WORST ENEMY premiered. Had the series premiered six months later, NBC might have had a huge hit on its hand. So I guess you could say, MY OWN WORST ENEMY’S enemy, was bad timing.

  • Nick

    Oh, I don’t know if I can buy that excuse. I had fans emailing me about Kellan Lutz before the movie even premiered, and I know the fans were well acquainted with Taylor. To be honest, Lutz didn’t get much of a bump on 90210, either.

    And if we really look close, Twilight grossed $69 mil its opening weekend, then fell by nearly two-thirds in a week, and the numbers fizzled faster than vampire in full sun. Until they prove differently, I’m sticking with the notion that the Twilighters aren’t as widespread and loyal as EW would have us believe.
