Twilight Cast Upheaval! Who's In? And Who's OUT?????

| Filed under: Ben BarnesTwilight

wenn1881191__opt.jpg wenn5180469.jpg

There seems to be a lot of talk and UNCERTAINTY surrounding the new Twilight sequel, New Moon.

So much so that new director Chris Weitz and even author Stephenie Meyer had to release statements explaining the situation.

But what about the reports that the studio, Summit, doesn't want to re-hire "baby-faced" Taylor Lautner as Jacob. Apparently, they don't think he has what it takes to play the werewolf love interest/lead in New Moon.

The statements released didn't confirm his return.

That was NOT an oversight!

Now, reports are that the 26 year-old actor Michael Copon, from Scorpion King 2 (above, bottom), is one of the several actors director Weitz is considering to play the new and larger Jacob Black role.

A rep for Copon said they are making all efforts to land this gig. Even Copon is taking to self-advertisement by changing his Facebook status to messages such as "Michael Copon in a Twilight Zone!" and "Michael Copon is the older Jacob Black!" His rep confirmed that the Facebook is indeed Copon's.

Hey, whatever it takes to be noticed!

Even Summit confirmed that omitting Launter from the release wasn't an error. A rep said, "The casting decision in regards to the character Jacob Black has yet to be made."

Drama!!!

Additionally, 27-year-old Prince Caspian star Ben Barnes is also campaigning for a role. He's said to be actiively trying to get the role of Aro, "a mind-reading vampire whose "New Moon" encounter with Edward and Bella helps shape their destiny together." And, coincidentally enough, Barnes has the same manager as Copon and Twilight star Cam Gigandet.

We smell a big paycheck coming in for their manager!

But even when a lead for Jacob has been cast, director Weitz is only left with about 12 weeks until filming starts.

There you have it Twilight fans!

What do U think?

Would Michael Copon be a good choice for the role of Jacob?

Would you be happy with Barnes in New Moon????

So much to discuss!!!

    I wanna know what ROBERT PATTINSON and KRISTEN STEWART think about this. And the rest of the cast.



  2. 102

    I have only seen Michael Copon in a few things and he is a good actor even though he usually plays an ass…it is just acting. I think he would do great.



  3. 103

    NO NO NO NO NO NO! You can't give us HOT Jacob and then later replace him with scrawny Jacob! NO NO NO NO NO! Fucking idiots!



  4. 104

    THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE R FUCKING UP A GOOD THING………..LEAVE THE MOVIE THE SAME. THE PEOPLE R ALREADY HAPPY WITH THE FIRST MOVIE, DONT FUCK IT UP. I HOPE THE NEW MOVIE BOMBS……..

    KEEP TAYLOR LAUTNER !!!



  7. 107

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    SERIOUSLY!! WTF!??!?

    WHY IS IT THEY ALWAYS FIND THE NEED FOR A 26 YEAR OLD TO PLAY A 16 YEAR OLD!!?? IT ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!! TAYLOR WAS PERFECT AGE AND HE WAS THE PERFECT JACOB BLACK!

    ITS HAPPENING TWILIGHTERS!! JUST AS WE PREDICTED!! THE NEW DIRECTOR AND SUMMIT ARE OFFICALLY RUINING THE TWILIGHT SAGA!!

    STOP STOP STOP!!!!!



  8. 108

    taylor does not make a good older jacob. period capitol.



  9. 109

    I am so PISSED OFFF word cant explain it WTF!!??? they want money then why they hell are they getting someone else to play Jacob let Taylor stay!! He can pull it off he is suppose to be sweet and and friendly not like the other guy and Barnes as Aro I like it

    wow Summit you really gonna Fuck this one up



  10. 110

    Aro is supposed ot be older but Ill forgive the change for Ben Barnes he is absolutely gorgeous and while it sucks for taylor lautner Id say that Copon guy seems good for the role.



  11. 111

    Re: tannat – She can't act for shit. I have read all 4 books and so have my friends, and we all looked at each other at the end of the movie and screamed KRISTEN STEWERT SUCKS!

    She ruined the movie.



  12. 112

    First of all, while Ben Barnes is completely gorgeous he looks like a woman. Jacob Black is the epitomy of masculinity and he does NOT fit the bill.
    Secondly, Michael Copon is HOT and actually looks a little like the kid they had play Jacob in Twilight which would be a good transition!

    It's no secret the 5'7 kid they had play Jacob won't cut it considering he sky rockets to like 6'5 so whoever they pick just needs to be tall dark and smouldering!



  13. 113

    People are so funny I swear….Jacob in New Moon and the rest of the books after is suppose to like he is 23-26, no way in hell can Taylor pull off looking like someone in his midtwenties. Taylor is 16, Michael is 26 and you can tell who the grown man is between the two. Michael Copon puts Taylor to shame. Go google Michael Copon…he is freaking hot.

    The reason they hired Taylor for Jacob in Twilights is because Jacob is SUPPOSE to look young but we all know New Moon Jacob looks noithing like Twilight Jacob. I can't wait for a Rob and Michael sandwhich….the barnes guy is not bad looking either but I saw Aro as older guy not some hot twenty something.



  14. 114

    Scratch that! didn't read thoroughly *blushes*

    Barnes would be great for Aro!

    Now this all makes sense ;)



  15. 115

    Copon NO Barnes YES YES YES YES YES! Copon doesn't look native american and i love taylor lautner! he is the PERFECT JACOB BLACK! Ben Barnes would make a hot vampire b/c he's just HOT



  16. 116

    NO!
    FUCK MICHAEL COPON!
    STEVEN STRAIGHT SHOULD BE JACOB BLACK!



  17. 117

    I WILL NEVER GO SEE NEW MOON IF THEY KICK TAYLOR OUT FUCK THAT UGLY THING UP THERE HE ISNT OUR JAKE TAYLOR IS FIRST OF ALL HE ISNT EVEN NATIVE AMERICAN HE SHOULD STICK TO BEING A POWER RANGER CAUSE I DONT SEE HIM AS JACOB! AND TAYLOR DOSENT EVEN LOOK HIS AGE HE LOOKS OLDER THAN 16 !

  18. JCPR says – reply to this


    118

    OMG!!!!!!!!!! Please DO NOT hire Michael Copon!!!!! I HATE HIM! he's the wort actor ever! most of the movies he has done they all went straight to DVD! Just think about it!!!!!!!!!



  19. 119

    Re: xoxoprivatexoxo – SHUT UP HES NOT HOT!



  20. 120

    Re: andrea_ – ARO IS WAY OLDER THAN 30-40 AND I WANT TAYLOR



  21. 121

    THE MOVIE SUCKS!!!!!…There are not many actionsss…Too much talking no action…I COULD CARE LESS with the stars on it!!!!!!!



  22. 122

    No no no no no!!!! Ok yes both are hot but no! Michael Copon didn't do a good job on One Tree Hill and he won't do a good job in this. and if Taylor Lautner is too young then Copon is TOO OLD!! Like way too old. Ok just stick with the orignal cast. It is soo stupid when you switch mid-saga. I find this all very upseting.



  23. 123

    Re: robbyzlina – THEY DONT CARE ABOUT THIER FANS FEELINGS THEY SHOULD LET THE FANS MAKE THE CHOICE OF WHO WE WANT TO SEE IT OUR MONEY WE PAY TO SEE IT



  24. 124

    NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! NOT BEN BARNES! UGH. And they're complaining about TAYLOR not actually being Native American? Bullshit! Honestly, they need to keep this quiet and let people get over it. They choose who they choose. so what. It's not like anyone but the director can really make the decision anyway.



  25. 125

    I understand that they Taylor looks too young to play the Jacob for New Moon, but seriously, that Copon guy? He looks like Jesse Metcalf (sp), and is no where near the level to play Jacob. He doesn't have the look, and appears to be cocky if he's flaunting it all over facebook already when his rep didn't even confirm it. In addition, that other guy, as bloody gorgeous as he is, does NOT have the look to play Aro. The Volturi are the ancient vampires that so much is based on in the book. While he makes good eye candy, Aro is supposed to be significantly older, and unless they plan on doing some wicked make up to this guy, he doesn't have it. I can't think off the top of my head someone equivalent of playing any of the Volturi, but it would need to be someone who looks much older. If it is the case having younger kids playing older roles, Jane is going to look 12.



  26. 126

    Re: tannat – agreed kristen stuart was AWFUL in the movie… she just isnt a very good actor. but i mean by getting Michael Copon as Jacab, then bella and jacob will atleast be on an equal lever of sucky acting.
    THIS MOVIE WILL BLOW. WITH SUCKS I LOVE THE BOOKS



  27. 127

    personally.. i liked the character for jacob black but he isnt one of the main characters so why does he matter so much??

    he didnt play alot in the scenes… although i read the new moon and jacob is in it alot in the beginning so i guess it matters for the sequal…

    but if the producers dont think hes right for the part and cant go through with it then go ahead and change the actor.. because does anyone want to pay money to see a movie where the characters are crappy? didnt think so, and i think the producers would know more about who is fit for the part then we would. so we should just see how they handle it..



  28. 128

    WHY would they change the cast NOW? That would be SO stupid!! Changing the Jacob role would be like changing the Edward role! Stick with what you've started with! If you didn't like Taylor, then why did you cast him in Twilight!? Summit obviously didn't think about this ahead of time!

    Summit-
    If you don't want to piss off the Twilight fans, then DON'T change whose playing Jacob! We love Taylor Lautner, he's OUR Jacob!! Keep it that way!



  29. 129

    I think that the new Jackob would be so much better for the part! Go Ben Barnes!



  30. 130

    Re: LaDiva is unleashed… – IF THEY CAN MAKE BEN BARNES OLDER TO PLAY ARO WHY CANT THEY DO THAT FOR TAYLOR ! ITS A BIGGER STRETCH FOR BEN TO PLAY ARO AND TAYLOR IS GREAT !



  31. 131

    yes for Barnes!



  32. 132

    no no no!!!!! leave taylor alone!! he makes a great jacob black and they can use computers to make him look older n taller. this michael dude, no no no!!!!!!!



  33. 133

    Ok the guy for Aro, I can see that. I admit every time I read Aros character I pictured the guy who played Dracula in buffy the vampire slayer and in the Dracula documentary. But I can see him pulling the part off.

    SERIOUSLY WHO THE FUCK IS THIS COPON GUY! I googled him and he is older than ALL the cast members. Jacob Black is suppose to be one of the youngest characters, he is suppose to be younger than bella. How the fuck is some 26 year old going to play the part. And HELLO he isnt even Native American, at least lautner was half. In an interview Lautner said he was more than willing to bulk up for the part of Jacob in new moon and with new hollywood make up um.. he could totally pull the part off.

    God summit is so fucking stupid.



  34. 134

    nooooo i love taylor lautner as jacob! i love what he brings to it. that prince caspian guy would be good, but who is the douche in the vest? he looks like he will RUIN the movie.



  35. 135

    wtf this guy doesn't even look like jacob black.
    i hope they don't mess new moon up like they did with twilight
    seriously michael copon is SOOOOOOO WRONG for the part of jacob black. they should just keep taylor. stupid summit



  36. 136

    I always imagined Aro as older…like 30s or 40s…as for the casting of Jacob…I think they need to keep Taylor. And as Ive said before, get the kid a trainer! He can beef up a bit!



  37. 137

    Also grown up jacob black? That doesnt make any sense! Anyone who has read new moon knows Jacob doesnt AGE rapidly once he becomes a wolf. He looks more mature but he doesnt GROW UP. Stupid.



  38. 138

    Oh come on just keep Taylor he looks good in the role! I'm not a Twilight fan or anything but that poor boy did a great job, let him continue with it.



  39. 139

    plus i dont want jacob to b played by a former power ranger!!



  40. 140

    I can't stand Copon and I can't stand Jacob Black.
    So I say he's in.



  41. 141

    who is cast as Leah??



  42. 142

    I hate it when they change actors for the same role. KEEP TAYLOR! I feel bad for him :(



  43. 143

    Yeah, yeah they're cute and eveything but none of them should be Jacob !
    Come on! The guy is supposed to grow up.. no to have a PLASTIC SURGERY !!!!
    Keep Taylor .. they know what special effect are ?

    What the hell with writting about Twilight on his facebook! I hate Coppon! :)



  44. 144

    Fucking hell they are going to ruin this film with loads of pretty guys… they think by craming it with loads of young fit guys they will get more cash from the girls. But they will loose the credibility. I always saw Aro as an older guy more regal someone who commanded authority, not young Prince Caspien…

    Edward should be the only hottie. Keep the guy they already cast as the Wolf this isnt Dawsons Crack or One Tree Hump.



  45. 145

    oh my…



  46. 146

    I dont want Taylor to be fired.. he could do it! give him the opportunity to prove himself!!! I don't want Michael Copon to play Jacob.. its not the same.. i really think that Taylor can do a better job and he'll appreciate it more:)

    Ben Barnes I have no problem with him joining the cast.. but, KEEP TAYLOR!



  47. 147

    HELL NO to Michael Copon, HELL YES to Ben Barnes. Barnes would totally fit the role of Aro but Summit has no business kicking Taylor Lautner out of his role. They're just a bunch of tightwad assholes who don't want to pay for the special effects this franchise needs. If they can't afford to make Lautner look a bit taller, buffer, then they have no business attempting to show humans morphing into giant wolves.



  48. 148

    that's FUCKING RETARDED. half the reason i watched twilight was for taylor lautner. and if they FUCKING CHANGE HIM, i will scream. its obnoxious when people change actors, and even though taylor may be "babyfaced", he's such an amazing jacob, and i find it totally cute that he isn't so muscled and everything. even though that's what jacob is supposed to be in new moon, i'd still rather it be taylor ! :)

    TEAM LAUTNER ALL THE WAYYY.

  49. Amyy. says – reply to this


    149

    OMFG IF THEY GETT RID OFF TAYLOR IAMMM SOOO NOT SEEING ANYMORE OF THE TWILIGHT MOVIEESSS



  50. 150

    Hmm, I was pissed off earlier with the news that Michael is trying to become Jake…but….now….I don't know…I mean I LOVE Taylor (the guy currently as Jake) and he is SO dedicated to being Jake….and it breaks my heart to maybe not have him as Jake.

    But at the same time, IF they have to re-cast Jake (WHICH I REALLY REALLY DO NOT WANT) Michael would be a decent choice…I guess…I mean, he looks like Taylor (I photoshopped a picture of Taylor and Michael next to each other and they look VERY much alike), but I have heard that he is not a good actor (I wouldn't know…haven't ever seen him act) and in my mind he should be Paul…so…I don't know…I am torn over it all.

    Now as far as Ben Barnes, I LOVE him…and really want him in the movie..but not as Aro…as Demetri :D



  51. 151

    bahaha i just read my last comment.. i should really read them before posting, spelling error central!

    Oh well the movie is going to be too rushed to be good, and I wont even have sexy Robert Pattinson to stare at for the whole thing… just the beginning and end, so sad!

  53. 153

    AHHHHHHH Ben Barnes in ANYTHING is/would be amazing.
    But him in such a crappy, poorly written excuse for literature such as Twilight would be a disgrace. He can land roles that are SO much better. Besides, Aro always struck me as GAY, and Ben is no where near gay or that flamboyant…

    I hope he doesn't make it in, cause then all the stupid fan girl hormonal teenaged bandwagon jumpers will be all, "OMGGGG BEN!!!!" just like they are with Robert Pattinson. Ew.



  54. 154

    That little fucker. No Taylor=No New Moon. Good job jackass, you just lot yourself a lot of money. I know a ton of Taylor fans are with me on this.

    Boycotting the fucking movie.



  55. 155

    Ben might be okay but the other guy needs to go.He looks like an ass.Keep the same Jacob as before.he was adorable



  56. 156

    If Taylor Lautner isn't in I'll be super pissed.



  57. 157

    Re: topper – alright….i guess santa deserves a litttle somethin' somethin'



  58. 158

    that copon guy was on one tree hill and he sucks. he's cute, but cannot act. ben barnes is hot–and i can see him as one of the volturi. i'm not in love with taylor lautner or anything, but i think he seems sweet and it sucks what they're doing to him. i'll see them regardless cause i love rob pattinson–but i hope they don't eff up new moon.



  59. 159

    Keep Taylor Lautner for Jacob!!!!

    They need to get Dylan Ramsey in that movie! They need to get some new blood in there. www.dylanramsey.com. check him out and see how right i am



  62. 162

    Re: BlueandYellow – fuck you. taylor lautner is the sweetest and best jacob black out there. don't talk trash. he's awesome.



  63. 163

    I think Ed Westwick would make a good Aro…Chace Crawford would have made a god Edward too…
    No matter what, the second film will half way suck because Edward is gone for a good chunk of it.



  64. 164

    please please please get STEVEN STRAIT! he would be perfecto! real eye candy competition for Rob! lol



  65. 165

    Well..

    I would feel indifferent if Ben Barnes were to play Aro. Although when i read the book i imagined someone more mature-looking, but whatever.

    Bring Taylor Lautner back!
    This Michael Copon looks a wee bit sleezy. Taylor has the amazing pearly white smile that Jacob has in the story. I imagined Jacob to look like taylor when i read the book (only a little more ripped) ;)



  66. 166

    Re: omggitsparv – I agree…why can't they leave will enough alone?



  67. 167

    KEEP TAYLOR…they should have thought of this before they cast him…he's PERFECT for the role and i think he will be able to pull of the werewolf i really love him and they should know that a lot of fans will not like the decision if they let him go…i'm gonna cry if he's not in NEW MOON!!



  68. 168

    HOLY CRAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IF BEN BARNES WAS IN NEW MOON IT WOULD BE MY ALL TIME FAV MOVIE EVER!
    RPattz and Ben in the same movie?!? I think the cosmos would implode. It cant handle that much hottness. legit.



  69. 169

    Re: tannat
    I couldn't agree more. She can't act to save her life. AND she's an egotistical pothead bitch in real life. They need to replace Kristen Stewart ASAP or it won't matter who they get for Jacob. the movie will suck as long as Stewart plays Bella.



  70. 170

    DAMN! WHO'S THAT FUCKING HOTTIE IN THE WHITE VEST? I'D BANG THE SHIT OUT OF HIM!!!
    .
    .
    SURE ENOUGH!!
    .
    .
    TO THE LEFT TO THE LEFT



  71. 171

    ben barnes as Aro? HELL YEAH!
    michael copon as THE jacob? HELL to the NO NO NO!!!

    if they really want to change jacob, at least steven strait would have been a much, MUCH better choice than that already-over-his-head michael. steven practically was jacob in sky high!



  72. 172

    I love how Summit is so obsessed with money yet they're not even considering all the merchandise they've made with TAYLOR LAUTNER's face on it as JACOB BLACK. How much money would be wasted from that, huh?



  73. 173

    Dear Summit: FUCK OFF, You're fucking things up. Stop. Just STOP, before we bring out the torches and pitchforks.

    Dear Stephanie Meyers: Do something. Please. This is getting rediculous.

    Thanks.



  74. 174

    K, now i'm starting to get a little bit angry with this new director if he's changing cast members. Like this is Taylor's big break into the movies… and I read New Moon a long time ago so it's a bit hazy…when does Jacob have his huge growth spurt?, because they could use Taylor,then after "Jacob" has his growth spurt use this Micheal guy. But on the looks of Micheal and Ben they look pretty good, for the part, but i've never seen them act…so I dunno… I just don't want Taylor kicked out :(



  75. 175

    barnes would be a great addition to play aro, but I don't know about the other guy for jacob. They should just stick with the original taylor. this new one doesn't even have an ounce of indian. He looks latino…



  76. 176

    both are nice looking pretty boys… and I think I might believe that Jacob could grow up to looking like photo number two. I feel bad for the first jacob though, I hope he grows up to be a huge star and can tell summit to pound sand !!



  77. 177

    OH MY GOD. TAYLOR LAUNTER HAS TO STAY!!!
    i'm completely apalled that they would can him. i love him. :(
    ugghhhh.



  78. 178

    NOOOOO!!!!!!! no on coupon!!! HE CANT ACT!!! He is FUGLY!! & TAYLOR IS HAWT!!

    if summitt replaces taylor with coupon just because he is a few inches taller, they're gonna have a full on new moon boycott!!!

    taylor is already loved by soo many. hes already gained 20lbs (of muscle )for the role. give him a chance!!!

  79. 179

    NONONONONO!! they CANNOT replace Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black! why would they do that after this movie (and its stars) have gotten so much attention?! They can't just take Taylor out of the picture. It would be too much of a change. And how will they explain the difference? He doesn't start changing noticebly until halfway through New Moon. They MUST keep Taylor as Jacob!



  80. 180

    Oh, he's really cute, but can he act? Then again, he can't be much worse than Kristen Stewart.



  81. 181

    i think they would both fit the parts good. I really don't like michael copon (HATED him on one tree hill) but I think he would be a pretty good Jacob considering that he looks alot like him. I do feel kinda bad for taylor though but he looks way too young for the next part in the books.



  82. 182

    A definite yes to Ben Barnes and Aro.
    And NO to Michael Copon, he's an awful actor. If they have to change Jacob, they should choose Steven Strait…..

  83. Solly says – reply to this


    183

    I hate when they do that Shit. Everyone knew "Twilight" was going to be successful so why didnt they just cast the people they thought had the ability to go the distance with the characters?? I have nothing against the actors being consider but NO !! I think Taylor Lautner did GREAT !! And I can see him as Jacob Black. Next the Studio's should cast someone they think is "perfect" and not change actors once the fans have already grown attached !



  84. 184

    Wow! I hope this happens. This would be great casting that should of happened for the first movie! When I read Twilight I totally had Michael Copon in my head as Jacob! Older looking and kind of a prick…he's perfect! As for Taylor, cute kid..seems like a really sweet guy…but he looked out of place with the rest of the casting who were mostly 20 something actors. Can they please replace Kristen Stewart?! She seems like a really cool girl but she does nothing for her character Bella..



  85. 185

    Ben Barnes ALL THE WAY!
    the other guy=not so much



  86. 186

    Taylor all the way he much cuter than both!

    Well as long as Robert and Kristen are still coming back for New Moon, anybody else is fine with me! I think Michael Copan is actually hotter and a better older Jacob looking. I just don't see how keeping Taylor is going to help with the movie. Sorry, Taylor, it aint personal but its just business. Besides you probably did not want to share the limelight with sizziling hot Robert Pattinson! Find another type of film and you will be the leading man in no time! Just not your time, buddy! Best of luck, Taylor! Let's hope Michael Coapan can carry the movie way it should be intended!
    For Ben Barnes–Never heard of him nor haven't seen the new Naria film yet. I always pictured Aro as a hottie older guy like Gary Oldman, Jean Reno or Arrmand Assante. Summitt–I hope you are listening!

    how about jamie dornan as one of the volturi? he's hot and has a charming smile befitting a vampire.

    wow… they are making a huge mistake.

    IF THEY FIRE JACOB I WILL NOT GO SEE NEW MOON.YOU SHOULD NOT FIRE HIM FOR BEING BABY FACED JACOB IS ONLY SUPPOSED TO BE 16 ANYWAY.I THINK THEY SHOULD LEAVE IT HOW IT IS AND STOP TRYING TO MAKE MONEY INSTEAD OF PLEASING THE FANS.

    Who ever plays Jacob Black NEEDS to be/look NATIVE AMERICAN, TALL & Built!!!! I thought the other kid WAS perfect, now they just need a bigger version of him!!! THE BOOKS ARE WAYYYY BETTER, THOSE MOVIES SUCK ASS

    i love all 3 of them…but i loooove michael copon! i love him from OTH :)



  93. 193

    Copon is waaay hot & completely looks like a lil bit more grown up Taylor. If Taylor cannot bulk up & look manlier, I say replace him with Copon. But if Taylor can do it, he's got these 2 foolios beat. (Barnes=BLECH!)



  94. 194

    KEEP TAYLOR LAUTNER! D:



  95. 195

    Recasting Jacob would make alot of Twilight fans mad,and also I heard the director is talking to the people who made that new Brad Pitt movie that's coming out on Christmas, how they age Brad Pitt, so they can age Taylor…dunno if that's a rumour or not….keep Taylor I say!



  96. 196

    Make Barnes native and cast him LOL or find a sexy native guy that can act. It shouldn't be too hard.



  97. 197

    Copon would be a really good older Jacob Black. But only with looks. I think they need someone a little more experienced. ALTHOUGH, Taylor Lautner was Sharkboy…. I'm not sure about Ben Barnes being Aro, I didn't picture him, I pictured an older guy. Maybe mid 30s age.
    But I'm sure it will turn out great. I'm looking forward to New Moon.



  98. 198

    GAH, a ben barnes-roberto pattinson sangawich in New Moon! That would totally make up for a shitty budget? Copon is really annoying though, hoing it out on public for the role, sit the hell down pinay!



  99. 199

    PS: Screw COpon, I want Jason Momoa for Jacob! He's only 2 years older than Copon and a way hotter bitch and he's 6'4" and hot as hell with dreads! Jacob with dreads–equals epic win for all!
