Taylor Lautner’s got a big role to fill. 

The Twilight actor is set to play Dirk Diggler, the fictional 1970s p*rn star from Boogie Nights, a role forever immortalized in film history by Mark Wahlberg—in a live reading that is.

So to answer your question, no, Taylor won’t be taking off any of his clothes.

Juno director Jason Reitman has organized a live reading of the 1997 Paul Thomas Anderson film’s screenplay, which is happening tonight at the LACMA’s Film Independent.

Jason announced other famous names set to participate via his Twitter account—Mae Whitman of "Parenthood" fame and every leading lady’s go-to romcom sidekick Judy Greer, just to name a couple you might recognize.

Taylor is the most high-profile star and while this isn’t an actual remake of the film (God forbid), this is his most mature “role” to date.
