Rumors keep circulating as to who will play the role of Jacob, the primary love interest, in the upcoming Twilight sequel.
It seems the choice was down to Twilight's Taylor Lautner, who was thought to look too young and not manly enough for the role, or the hunkier Michael Copon.
But, according to Entertainment Weekly, it seems Taylor might be able to reprise his role in the upcoming flick, New Moon.
Summit Entertainment is expected to make an announce as early as this week as to which actor they've chosen.
Melissa Rosenberg, screenwriter of both Twilight films, says "Jacob is a totally different character in New Moon. He's a foot taller and huge – and he's supposed to look 25. It's really a question of whether or not the same actor can play the role. Everyone would love to keep him. We all think he's the loveliest person ever."
Taylor will be turning 17 next month, though he says he's been exercising and has already put on 19lbs, with another 10 more to add.
And, according to online polls, viewers chose to have Lautner keep his role.
The sequel will be released this year on November 20th.
