Taylor Lautner is still Jacob Black

Via SM's official website and MySpace blog, Taylor Lautner will be playing Jacob Black in the film version of New Moon.

Check out the note from director Chris Weitz:

I think its best to leave cast as the originals if at all possible when making sequels..... he still bothers me though lol.

Kari said...

Yay! I'm more relieved that he's cast than I thought I'd be. I thought I didn't care but I guess I do. Go Taylor!

Corinne said...

This news does make me glad. I did like him more than most actors in Twilight.

I am so happy :)
that Copon guy got on my nerves I pretty much was going to send death threats if it was him.

Thanks for posting

I think you guys are all cool by the way

alison said...

thanks debra! we like you guys too! Its fun to have people to chat with about lame vamp stuff ;)

I"m glad Taylor is still in. for these reasons.
1: He is not the best actor, but I felt something genuine about him when I watched him, something that the other actors didn't seem to have. He was one of the few I liked.
2: He was the only one I noticed Bella to have any sort of chemistry with.
3: He has just the right sort of warm Jacob smile/vibe, where as Capon has only a sense of douchebaggyness.

yay for taylor! maybe I'll actually want to watch this one. (Jacob is my fave.)

I totally agree with ya Alison! I'm glad he'll be returning too! His personality is perfect and I think he a Bella had decent Chemistry! I look forward to seeing that develop in the movie!! I agree with what most of what was said on the other post about the Twilight movie! I hope since they have more of a budget things will be better! Regardless I'll still buy the dvd and still go se NM in the theaters and buy it as well

Nice word for Capon Alison!:) he gave of a weird vibe. 0_o

but i am SOOOOO happy that we will be seeing more from Taylor!! WOOT WOOT!!!!

Ginger @ GReads! said...

Just got an email from Amazon this morning stating that Twilight the DVD is available for pre-order!

Not sure when the release date is though.

16. 'New Moon'

Release Date: Nov. 20

Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson

Why It'll Be Big: 'Twilight' was barely in theaters when this sequel was greenlit. Despite mixed reviews, the original raked in cash, so Bella and the boys will rise again. This time, she's separated from her vampire love and falls for a werewolf. A new director (Chris Weitz) and intricate storyline should give the franchise new bite.

ITS NUMBER 16/41 most anticipated movies of 2009

"the franchise new bite"
