Twilight star Taylor Lautner has joined the cast of a reading of Boogie Nights as the hapless porn star that Mark Wahlberg made famous in the 1997 movie.

Director Jason Reitman, who announced the casting on his Twitter page, will host the event.

It won’t be the first time he has brought Boogie Nights to the stage. In a live reading at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, Reitman selected Jesse Eisenberg to play Diggler and Olivia Wilde as Amber Waves.
