Taylor Lautner, looking tough in a backwards cap and leather jacket, took in a performance of the Cirque du Soleil show "Iris - A Journey Through The World of Cinema."

The Twilight hunk even posed with the cast backstage after the Hollywood performance.

Lautner will soon be promoting his action flick Abduction ... in which he plays the leading man hoping to save the world. Could Tay be the next Tom Cruise? We'll be watching to find out.
