Taylor Lautner to play Dirk Diggler in Boogie Nights live-read

Taylor Lautner is set to step into Mark Wahlberg's shoes and take on the role of well-hung porn star Dirk Diggler in a Boogie Nights live-reading.

The Twilight actor will take on the character in Jason Reitman's production at The Film Independent event at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Thursday (10Oct13), according to TheWrap.com.

Judy Greer will portray Julianne Moore's Amber Waves character and Mae Whitman and Kevin Pollak will also hit the stage for the one-off event.

Jesse Eisenberg played Diggler in a live-reading last month (Sep13) at the Toronto International Film Festival, where Olivia Wilde read the role of Waves.
