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!!!

    NO NO NO they need to have someone who at least looks native american. STEVEN STRAIGHT would be much better than copon. If that director has any sense he'll listen to the fans



  2. 202

    Yes to Ben Barnes & No to Michael Copon



  3. 203

    THIS IS A BIG WET SLOPPY PILE OF BULLSHIT!
    WHAT THE FUCK SUMMIT
    YOU HIRE TAYLOR FOR THE FIRST MOVIE AND YOU JUST ARE GOING TO DROP HIM ON THE SECOND!!! BITCHES!!!
    IF TAYLOR LAUTNER IS NOT IN NEW MOON AS THE CHARACTER JACOB, I AND MANY OTHER GGIRLS WILL BE ENRAGED AND MOST LIKLY WILL TAKE ACTION LOL BUT REALLY

    WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I FUCKING HATE SUMMIT
    KEEP TAYLOR AND KEEP THE GOD DAMN CAST
    SUMMIT IS RUINING TWILIGHT AND ITS GLORY GOD DAMIT!



  4. 204

    YEAH, copon doesn't look indian, stupid summit. they just see someone slightly tan and think that's good enough. Copon is cute but he looks Filipino or Asian not Native American.



  5. 205

    KEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP ALL THE ORINGNAL CAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    KEEP TAYLOR LAUTNER



  6. 206

    If they don't bring Taylor back as Jacob AND hire Ben as Aro, I will be so angry. Taylor was perfect for the fun-loving and sweethearted Jacob. And Aro is supposed to be MUCH older than Ben is or could ever dream of playing.

    207

    AHHH!!! I have no idea what to think about that, it's really unfair if they replace Taylor… but i'm not sure if he can pull off New Moon, but i have faith in him, he did really good in Twilight…



  8. 208

    Very concerned about how the finished product of New Moon is going to turn out! Seems as if there is too much drama in the pre-production process. Oh, and Lautner should stay, he has potential as an actor…!

  9. k-lee says – reply to this


    209

    What the EFF! Seriously, Taylor would make a better Jacob than that guy! He's NO Jacob Black!

    And Ben Barnes as Aro? Are y0u kidding?

    This sucks! Weitz is so lame for replacing Taylor!



  10. 210

    I love ben barnes. but i still think taylor should play jacob. he plays jacob so well.



  11. 211

    I bet Catherine the oldorginal director is pissing herself now…. she will probably walk away with the only successful film cos she took her time. 5000 actors for Edward Cullens role is very thorough. Summit are now selling out big time!!!

    4th book is my favorite, it has everything, the romance, its darker and you can imagin the vamps going all Xmen for the fight scenes, it could look amazing.



  12. 212

    stick with taylor!
    he is so attractive and so nice
    who cares if hes a bit short…he is sexy ok!?



  13. 213

    I LOVE TAYLOR LAUTNER!
    How could they replace him? That doesn't even make sense! Once you've casted a part you can't just replace them! That is so gay!
    =(
    Kepp Taylor Lautner!
    And Ben Barnes is good. I actually really like him. Good actor and cute.



  14. 214

    Oh now I know why they think Michael Copan would be a great lookalike of older Taylor..it is because of their..drum roll..

    NOSE! Taylor sure does have a weird looking nose so it make sense!



  15. 215

    I think he could kinda look like it..why dont they use both Taylor and Michael? in the book in the begining..Jacob is still young looking..then he has growth spurts. but hes still supposed to be 15/16 so i mean really..they need to keep Taylor and just add effects to make him look older and taller.



  16. 216

    thats kinda crazy.. when i was reading the books i pictured Michael Copon ( Felix on OTH really ) as Jacob.. but i feel bad for Taylor Lautner.. i think if they just get a good make up artist in they will be fine.. altho i think he needs to be taller :P

    Mamajud,
    I've noticed you have a tiny crush on topper. I confess, I do. His pictures are scrumptious.
    But I like his previous photo much more.



  18. 218

    Isn't that dude too young to play Aro? If I'm remembering correctly Aro was much older with super thin skin and milky eyes. Not some 27 yr old. Am I right or wrong? I guess they could do a lot with makeup but I think he is supposed to appear much older.



  19. 219

    Ben Barnes would be FUCKING hot as AROS
    if i were RPatz i would be shakin' in mah boots!



  20. 220

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO Tayler LAutner is hot. With the magic of the movies he should be able to stay and reprise the role he started. That isn't fair. Tayler deserves to stay.



  21. 221

    Um when that actor, Copon, was on One Tree Hill, i would always get a bad vibe from him. It was bad acting. I don't think he can be believable as a love interest for Bella. I really thing Lautner, from Twilight, did a good job playing the happy/cheery Jacob. Maybe get him to pump iron or SOMETHING! I think it's pretty ridiculous when Sequels change actors; it ruins it a lot for the fans. Like did anyone else hate when they changed the mom on the third Mummy movie? How can you replace Rachel Weisz as if nothing ever happened! I think the same weird feeling would come across in New Moon if Jacob is completely different. And if its really necessary, I saw definitely go for someone who doesn't appear douchey. Get a goodlooking, dark-skinned guy!



  22. 222

    Taylor should stay. You cant change Jacob. The book isnt skipping years its only in a few months.



  23. 223

    How about hiring Native actors to play Native roles? I think it's HILARIOUS that Summit had a "hard time" finding Native actors for Twilight. It's a fucking cop out and every Hollywood Indian knows it! Did they even try, or did they subscribe to the notion that American Indians died along with the buffalo and the passing of the frontier? I mean, come on, at least TRY!



  24. 224

    Taylor Laurent. Such a beautiful smile….I can't think of Jacob Black without that smile.



  25. 225

    I think i might shoot myself in the face.

  26. MP says – reply to this


    226

    I always pictured Aro older.



  27. 227

    What the heck?!
    Why are they changing Taylor?! He's perfect for the role.. Gosh! He even has 16!
    And.. I have nothing against that hotties, bue they're too old to play as Jake Black.
    They're not even native americans.

    Is Weitz going crazy? Why the f**ck can't they make-up Taylor?
    Helloo! Make-up helps a lot! There are tons of tricks they can use with Tay.
    Is it a complot or something? Why they don't change Pattinson or Stewart?
    Lautner has a lot of fansites; if Taylor loses they all are gonna go against the new director.

    Do they want thousands of resignations because of an actor?
    I don't think so.



  28. 228

    As long as Patterson is there I don't care! But, I like the actor who played Jacob. He can pull it off.



  29. 229

    FUCK THIS! Love Ben Barnes he's a hottie, but if they replace Taylor as Jacob, we're gonna have some serious problems.



  30. 230

    I really will be SO angry and upset if they get rid of Taylor as Jacob. He IS Jacob for so many of us now. He has that smile that lights up a room and he & Kristen were fantastic in their scenes together..just as "at ease" as Bella & Jake in the books. I'm so disappointed in Summit. :(



  31. 231

    Re: tannat

    I DONT GET WHY PEOPLE HATE KRISTEN SO MUCH , WELL MAYBE ITS CAUSE SHE GOT TO MAKE OUT WITH ROB PATTINSON AND BECAUSE SHE AND ROB MAKE A VERY CUTE COUPLE IF THEY EVER GET TOGETHER AND MAYBE ITS BECAUSE ROB HAS ADMITED THAT HE HAS A CRUSH ON HER AND DOESNT CARE SHE HAS A BF



  32. 232

    soooooooo pissed off about this
    TAYLOR LAUTNER IS JACOB BLACK, there is no questions!
    who the FUCK cares if he looks too "baby faced", it's fucking hollywood give me a break they can make people look however old or young they want it doesn't matter
    switching such a vital character like jacob in the second film is a HUGE mistake, they'll be losing me as a fan if this goes through, team taylor + jacob for life

    without taylor there is no jacob.



  33. 233

    I want Taylor Lautner to play Jacob!



  34. 234

    I think that Ben Barnes would do okay playing Aro, but seriously they cannot be thinking of replacing Taylor Lautner with Michael Copon for the role of Jacob. I think Taylor did a great job as Jacob on Twilight, but he had a small role, so they shouldn't just replace him like that.



  35. 235

    Michael i sooo not Jacob
    he is a douche

    and if they are thinking of replacing someone it should be Kristen she ruined Bella

    I am going to pray Summit doesnt eff this movie up

    and if they fire Taylor I am boycotting Twilight movie and so will 80% of my school which is all teenage girls

    TAYLOR LAUTNER!!!

    I think Barnes is 2 talented to be in Twilight and so is Rob



  36. 236

    Re: orchidgirl – heehee……what a specimen….damn!



  37. 237

    No! In my opinion, those don't seem like the right people to play as Jacob. It's Taylor all the way or nothing!



  38. 238

    No! In my opinion, they aren't the right people to play as Jacob. It's Taylor Lautner ALL THE WAY! Him or nothing…



  39. 239

    Okay

    FIRST……firing Taylor is the worst possible thing that they could do… and because he wont look old enough?? umm helo it's called "hollywood" editing tricks… if you want him to appear taller than have him stand on something…. give him a chance to bulk up and hey you've got the perfect ORIGINAL Jacob Black. its really not that hard especially if you have a big budget to work with.. which I'm sure they do because of the huge number of people who saw the first one. SECOND…. So many twilight fans are sooo upset and I have heard from endless numbers of people that if Jacob isn't in the movie they wont be gong to see it. Whats the point in making a sequal if you're only going to change the one of the MAIN CHARACTERS. No offense to the director because he' hott too but give Taylor a freaking chance already… As you can tell im really upset snd I'm sure plenty of people agree… as for caspian.. he's in for me but please please please just dont let them give up taylor it would honestly ruin the whole series of movies if he's out.

    240

    seens like every body liked Ben as Aro :)
    I totally loved… Aro is older, but ben is hot and this is what matters to make a good movei HAHAHAHAHAHA



  41. 241

    keep taylor for sure :) he makes an amazing jacob! plus, do you think we wouldn't notice a whole a new jacob?! it just wouldn't fit the movie to change actors



  42. 242

    FUCK MICHAEL COPON elkasjflksadflksjfslakfjsa.

    I'M SO MAD. He CANT act. Taylor was PERFECT. They shouldn't have casted him in the first place if they didn't think he'd be good for the second, recasting is stupid and defeats the purpose of continuity.

    IF they absolutely have to have a new actor…STEVEN STRAIGHT. NOT MICHAEL TAMPON.



  43. 243

    Copon as Aro, yes… well, maybe. But Jacob Black is native american for Christ sakes! If they don't stay true to that it will seriously wreck a huge part of the story, I hope they don't make a stupid decision like that…. it would be so dissapointing.

  44. Kaa says – reply to this


    244

    Oooo the first guy is nice. :]

    the second not so much..

    New Moon is going to be aweeesome



  45. 245

    I am down for ben barnes to play aro.. but they should keep talyor launter



  46. 246

    Barnes as Aro… yes!



  47. 247

    he can act he has played demon in a movie that comes out later and a good guy and he has even played a fighter and he has played all kinds of rolls i love him he is great !!!!!!!!



  48. 248

    WELL, okay lets see. I'm UTTERLY PISSED OFF RIGHT NOW. Taylor Lautner is GORGEOUS, seriously im in love with that kid. Why would you even ponder upon the thought of taking him out of the movie? He could pull it off.. he could pull of anything! He's Taylor Lautner mother fuckers. And chick thats gonna cry… im GONNA BAWL. I refuse to see new moon if taylor lautner isnt in it. EFF EFF EFF EFF THAT SHET!



  49. 249

    they need to keep taylor and say eff no to ben barnes, and hire unknowns. This is ridiculous.



  50. 250

    i think michael would play a good jacob only considering his role in eclipse and breaking dawn. he plays that cocky character really well so i can imagine it but i like taylor lautner. he is so cute!



  51. 251

    Not sure if Copon is right for the part, but he certainly does look right for it. Although, Jacob Black is (and still looks) 15 at the beginning of the novel, so not sure how they'd pull that off.

    Barnes would be better for Felix or Demetri. Aro is supposed to be ancient!

  52. kizzy says – reply to this


    252

    TOM WELLING IS PERFECT AND HE'S PART NATIVE AMERICAN TOO.
    they want someone who is older and can take over and carry the movie when Edward is gone Tom will be so perfect.



  53. 253

    NO WAY I LOVE TWILIGHT AND I LOVE JACOB BLACK.. TAYLOR LAUTNERIS THE ONLY ONE FOR THE PART !



  54. 254

    I think that they should have BEN BARNES, he was in both Narnia and stardust which were big hit and the same genre a twilight. i also think he has the potential to have the same effect Robert Pattinson has on girls (and perez). SO to answer your question i would be VERY HAPPY to see him in the new moon

  55. NatB. says – reply to this


    255

    RIGHT!
    Now I need a shirt with "TEAM ARO"
    that is OK



  56. 256

    I hate when they change people in movies.
    Plus i am in love with Taylor Launter!! Yummy
    So keep it the same is my vote..the other guy isn't as cute.



  57. 257

    Ben barnes looks a little young. i thought Aro should be just a little older…
    and you cant just CHANGE jacob like that!



  58. 258

    Taylor Lautner should stay as Jacob!!!
    He did well in Twilight.
    Plus he's a good actor and might i add REALLY HOT!!!!

    I dont care about who plays Aro, but Taylor should stay as Jacob



  59. 259

    wow.. i always pictures aro as being an older creepy looking guy. this is just weird. feel sorry for lauhtner, cause he seems like a great kid, but at the same time he is just too small to carry on the role of of jacob. hmmm… VERY curious as to how this is all going to pan out.



  60. 260

    NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DON'T FIRE TAYLOR!!!!!!!!!!!



  61. 261

    Barnes In! Copon Out! Robert Pattinson and Ben Barnes together in one movie would be heaven!



  62. 262

    Hate to say it but you better get use to Michael playing Jacob, all the news that has been leaked about New Moon has been true so far…Catherine leaving, Chris being hired…..pretty sure Taylor is out of a job.

    Really though people it's Hollywood and nothing is fair and all the complaining and letter writing aint gonna change a thing, so get use to looking at Michaels fine self =) Give the guy a chance though, I bet half of you guys were bitching about Rob too and now your all over his junk, and when New Moon comes out( and I know you will watch it even though you say you wont) you will be all over Michael and Taylor will be a distant thought. Really though you guys are drooling over a 16 year old??? Sorry but I like my guys to have gone through puberty.

    If you say you won't got see New Moon if Taylor isn't it in you are DUMB, the kid had like 5 lines in Twilight, you act like he had a major part. New Moon will go on without him and still take in 70 million wheather you watch it or not.



  63. 263

    I'd like to see Ben Barnes as Aro.. see if he could pull off the dark character. I want Taylor to play Jacob but they would have to make him age and I don't know how well that'll work. he has such a babyface but I just can't see anyone else as jacob.



  64. 264

    THEY CANT TAKE AWAY EDWARD
    why do you think millions of girls are on team taylor/jacob
    BECAUSE ITS TAYLOR LAUTNER
    changing the role of jacob would be a big mistake for this movie
    but i think that guy would fit aro well
    KEEP TAYLOR AS JACOB!!!!!!!!

    266

    What do I think? Movie #1 sucked a$$. Otherwise everyone involved would be onboard or paid handsomely for #2.



  67. 267

    I think for the sake of the movie… people are not accustomed to change. When movies are big like this, people are set with the characters. Even Catherine Hardwicke become engrained in the retina of the film, and look what an uproar THAT change of direction has caused. Imagine what an uproar removing Taylor Lautner would bring. People enjoy him, they like him, they whistle and quiver and shake with excitement knowing that it is HIM who is playing Jacob and he looks the role. He will be able to handle it. If the people casting the movie felt that he was good enough for the Twilight movie they should have thought about him in the sequel. I will assure you of the consequences of changing such a main characer. I have never seen a movie make as much profit as they could have due to the utter disappointment the casters created in the first place. Keep Lautner, save some trouble.



  68. 268

    taylor needs to get out.
    i think copon would be perfect, and also taylor is like 5'9
    jacob is suppose to be like 6'5 by the time he becomes a werewolf anyways.



  69. 269

    I feel bad for Taylor, honestly, but he does look too young to be the older Jacob. And this new guy they plan on hiring for the roll isn't any better.

    I do like that they picked Ben for Aro though.



  70. 270

    NO. taylor lautner now and FOREVERR



  71. 271

    Congrats on ruining New Moon, Summit.
    As a Twilight fan, I'm kinda peeved they're getting rid of Taylor just because he has a "baby face". um…ok? It doesn't matter. To me, Taylor IS Jacob.
    I hope Summit is prepared for thousands of angry fan letters…



  72. 272

    michael copon is from one tree hill? :S … that would be annoying.

    and… aro is supposed to be an old man.
    HAHAHAHA



  73. 273

    Ok so any REAL fan of the series knows a lot more than someone who just saw the movie. Yes, I would be sad to see Lautner go, but Jacob PHYSICALLY GROWS OLDER when he becomes a werewolf! He says it quite a lot in the book. It doesn't make sense to have Lautner..who actually is a teenager, to remain Jacob Black for New Moon because of all the physical restraints. CGI won't help him.



  74. 274

    Re: mamajud

    .
    Mamajud, every time I saw his previous avatar, I would have goosebumps all over.
    I would lick that maple syrup off his behind. Jesus Christ !!!!!!!!!
    Do you think he is gay?



  75. 275

    As a huge Twilight fan, I think they should be consistent and keep Taylor Lautner as Jacob. How is a 26 year old supposed to play a 17 year old werewolf?

    As for Aro…he's centuries old, he's supposed to have paper thin skin and look about as ancient as they get for vampires. He's not supposed to be a heartthrob! Whoever is doing the casting needs a serious dose of reality!!



  76. 276

    ben barnes = :D
    taylor lautner = :D
    getting rid of him = D:



  77. 277

    I don't like them at all.

    do you remember when michael was in one tree hill? …i wonder why that didn't last long.



  78. 278

    Taylor is short as hell!! He is supposed to be taller than Edward. Why hasn't anyone brought that up?! Fuck….they are totally going to screw these movies up!!

    Although that guy is wicked hot. I would definitely do the guy on the bottom!!



  79. 279

    the bottom one is hot as fuck lets go with him! :D



  80. 280

    I'm so freaking pissed. They shouldn't recast anyone at all. They should just leave it as is. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of people who aren't going to be happy at the fact that they're replacing Taylor. I think Taylor did a good job playing Jacob. And I'm pretty sure he can "beef" up enough to play an older Jacob. If they are seriously considering recasting the Jacob role then they should consider Steven Strait….he atleast looks more like Taylor. But honestly I think they should just keep Taylor. He's adorable. And Micheal just seems like a cocky little prick who thinks he automatically has the role and starts saying he's the "older Jacob Black". What a douche.

    As for Ben playing Aro….I kinda pictured Aro being much more older.



  81. 281

    im sorry but this is stupid
    they should have thought about this casting trouble before they hired taylor
    i dont care if he stays or not
    summit is ruining a good movie though
    i have a feeling this will be the last movie the make of the twilight series



  82. 282

    Keep Taylor as Jacob!!

    They knew they would be making more than just one movie while casting & now they should live with their decisions.
    & Having Ben added to cast would just add to the hottness

    Duh, Taylor "did good" in Twilight…he only had THREE frickin' lines. The kid, cute as he is, CAN NOT pull off an entire movie as the lead, attractive and charismatic male. He just can't. So stop whining, you 13 yr old sharkboy fans.

    ok so, im extremely mad about this whole situation. C'mon a 16 yr old playing a 16 year old sounds right. a 26 yr old playing a part of someone whose 10 years younger doesnt exactly work for this particular role. i mean c'mon the guy looks tooo old anyways! esp next to "bella".

    ben barnes would be good in the movie.

    but seriously… taylor lautner is soooo much better than that other douche bag.
    they can't just take away taylor especially since he was signed on for 3 movies anyway!!
    he deserves to be in new moon.
    you could already tell that him and kristen had better chemistry than her and rob in twilight hah.
    team taylor



  89. 289

    OMG I think Michael Copon would be PERFECT for the role. He looks more native american than Taylor thats for sure!!!!!!! I so hope he gets the role, He has always been my celebrity crush ♥

    STEVEN STRAIGHT needs to be the older Jacob. Taylor (unless the pump him full of steroids) should be out. He's not tall enough, not buff enough, and all around too young for the OLDER Jake. I very much enjoyed him as younger Jake but it's time to move on. All we can hope for is that the casting directors replace him properly! Michael kinda looks asain to me and that kinda takes away from the whole native american thing. There must be something someone can do to get STEVEN STRAIGHT to play Jacob. Where the hell is his agent and why hasn't he done anything about it?!?!?

    Much love and just remember nearly everyone HATED rob for Edward and most everyone has since changed their minds. Opinions are like bellybuttons, everyone got one, but hopefully in the end the head hanchos will find a middle ground with the fans…. in the form of STEVEN STRAIGHT.

    Peace!!!

    This is extremely unfair to Taylor! I'm not a huge fan of his but I do think that it's extremely unprofessional to fire him at this stage. Shouldn't they have considered his size when they hired him?? As for Ben Barnes, I could see him as Aro… although I actually pictured Antonio Bandares circa Interview with the Vampire



  94. 294

    Ben Barnes is a yes for aro…
    Michael is a hell no. Jacob is supposed to be Native American looking not a city boy! he can't even act! I'm glad taylor is gone, but michael doesn't cut it at all.



  95. 295

    NONONONONO!!!
    LEAVE TAYLOR LAUTNER AS JACOB!!
    the entire female part of the nation has fallen in love with him, so switching him would be a terrible mistake, girls wouldnt want to see the movie anymore becuase this guy is jacob, taylor is PERFECT for the part!!

    but ben on the other hand would be brilliant as aro :)
    hes absolutley deliciousss :



  96. 296

    It's a mistake to replace him, plain and simple. Should be the same guy…have him bulk up and then add in effects. They should have thought about it before they committed to the actor. Jacob plays a huge role in the next movie.



  97. 297

    NO NO NO NO NO
    Since they couldn't find a real Native American to play Jacob in the first place… now they pick a guy that's even whiter than white to play an Indian…
    NO NO NO NO NO
    Fucking Mormons and Movie Execs!
    Keep the Dumb ass Taylor and forget the White Guy! Fuck! What is this the 1950s were we have to put shoe polish and black yarn on white guys to make Indians!



  98. 298

    Re: babyyypold – I'm going to go with a no on that one. I haven't fallen in love with him. He's adorable, yes. He's not the OLDER Jacob, that's in New Moon/Eclipse. He's supposed to have aged, physically, when he tranforms. Taylor can do makeup, and stand on boxes…but he'll still have that babyface shine through, and his soft voice and goofy smile [cute, but not "manly"]

    THIS IS BS!!! Jacob in the book isn't even that much different after he becomes a werewolf except the fact that he's taller. I'm already NOT liking the direction this movie is going! And trust me, girls are going to be PISSED. Even if it wasn't twilight, I HATE when they change characters in sequels!! It's ridiculous!
