Not that I’m ever seeing Grown Ups 2, for the love of Christ, but it’s still so… sad. So, yeah, Taylor Lautner‘s taking a role in the Grown Ups sequel, with THR telling us he’s signed for a “fun” role that, thankfully, allows him to face off against Sandler. A fun role! Imagine that.

Chris Rock, David Spade, Kevin James, Rob Schneider, Salma Hayek, and Maya Rudolph are all coming back, while Dennis Dugan sits behind a video monitor and orders lunch.
Grown Ups 2 seeps onto screens on July 12th 2013.
