Taylor Lautner to Play Pee-Wee Herman

Taylor Lautner Pee-Wee HermanAccess Hollywood just posted an article on the amazing Taylor Lautner and how he will be playing Pee-Wee Herman in an upcoming movie (or maybe two!). Talk about WOAH! I am still having a hard time envisioning it, but hey, Taylor can pull it off:

“Taylor Lautner’s playing Pee-Wee in the movie. That’s what I understand,” Paul Reubens, in character as Pee-Wee, joked to Access Hollywood on Monday.

The “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse” star is making a comeback with a new stage show in Los Angeles, debuting at Club Nokia in January – and he added that a pair of movies are in the works.

“There’s going to be at least two new movies. Most people don’t know about it, yet, including all the studios,” he laughed with his trademark “ha-ha.” “I’m sure there will be in my lifetime.”

As for the reason to resurrect his famous character, Paul said he just felt Pee- Wee calling.

“I just got up one day and felt like I’m gonna come back, that was it,” Paul said. “I just felt like, ‘Not doing that much, might be fun to rehearse a show for weeks and weeks and weeks.’”

In the meantime, the funnyman has been involved in scientific pursuits.

“I’m involved a lot with the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, space exploration,” he said. “We just discovered water on the moon, I’m sure you’ve heard about that. In my spare time.”


  1. This sounds like a joke. I'm sorry but I just can't picture it and the way they describe what Ruebens said it sounds like he's just joking around about Taylor. I can't see it. Taylor's too hot to be Pee Wee Herman.

    On the other side, if it actually is true, I'm going to have to watch Pee Wee Herman for the first time in a long time.
