Straight from Stephenies website!!!!
January 7, 2009

Good news about New Moon from director Chris Weitz:

I'm very happy to announce that Taylor Lautner will be playing Jacob Black in New Moon and that he's doing so with the enthusiastic support of Summit Entertainment, the producers, and Stephenie Meyer.

The characters in Stephenie's books go through extraordinary changes of circumstance and also appearance; so it is not surprising that there has been speculation about whether the same actor would portray a character who changes in so many surprising ways throughout the series. But it was my first instinct that Taylor was, is, and should be Jacob, and that the books would be best served by the actor who is emotionally right for the part. I think that fans of Twilight the book and the movie will be surprised by the Jacob Black that Taylor will bring to the screen in New Moon; and I'm looking forward to working with him and the rest of the cast in realizing the film.

very best

Chris Weitz

I'd just like to add that I was very much a part of this decision. My first priority was always what was best for New Moon—what was going to give us the best possible movie. I'm truly thrilled that Taylor was the one who proved to the director, to Summit, and to me that he is the best possible Jacob we could have. And I'm very much looking forward to seeing what he's going to bring to Jacob's character this year.

- Steph

Angie | 40 comments Ugh...I am sorry but I still think MC would have been better. Sexier. That's all I am sayin'.


message 18: by Maryann (new)

Maryann (uorgirl) | 35 comments Hopefully he will only start out in the movie as the "Jacob" Bella knows first, then they can change him out pretty quick with someone else.


message 19: by Kay (new)

Kay | 83 comments Well, unlike the books, Rob, as Edward, won't have to worry about Jacob as a threat because Taylor, as Jacob, isn't one. There's no reason for the movie Bella to be conflicted over her relationship with Jacob because there's no competition between the two (Rob vs Taylor).


message 20: by Angie (new)

Angie | 40 comments I completely agree with Kay. I am just worried that the movie will be boring without the whole temptation plot of the Edward vs. Jacob theme. I thought Taylor did exceptional as Jacob in the first movie but his character is so much more mature in New Moon and I just don't see Taylor pulling it off. I hope I am wrong.

Well, I hope that he does a good job...I really didn't want them to replace him because as I have said a thousand times I hate when they switch actors in the middle it just looks low budget. Taylor may not be the best choice but he's who they chose...so I'm just hoping that it will all work out. I personally think he's so cute and in my mind it's his friendship with bella and the way he's there for her that causes the attraction between the two. Love isn't all about looks and I think that is they case for bella and jake. Plus edward wins in the end anyway we all know that!


message 22: by Kay (new)

Kay | 83 comments Angie, I'm hoping with you on this one, but as I've mentioned on other chats, the screenwriter has even stated matching Taylor against Rob is going to be a tall order. I'd love for them to change him out after his transformation; movies change actors to show a character's progression all the time, but I have a feeling Taylor is supposed to take us all the way through this thing. I just don't see how Taylor, CGI enhanced or not, could possibly generate the kind of believable "heat" (pardon the pun) that could woo Bella away from Edward. I think my greatest issue with Taylor, besides the fact that he isn't Native American and there are some great Native actors out there, is that he hasn't even finished puberty yet; hence, the short height, the overwhelming babyface, and soft voice, which certainly is not his fault as he's still a kid, but he's supposed to be a physical, psychological, sensual and romantic challenge to someone who's already a grown man. Jacob and Edward are supposed to be equal rivals.

Stephanie | 4175 comments Mod
Yeah but if you think about it he doesn't have to "woo" bella away because edward is already gone...when edward comes back the feelings she has for jake go back to just friendship....and I never thought of Jacob as sensual or romantic...hes kind of a punk and still very immature..but thats just my opinion.


message 24: by Kay (new)

Kay | 83 comments My bad. I should have chosen different words, I guess that's just me. By Eclipse, Bella clearly wants them both, even though she chooses Edward. Jacob is definitely a punk, but a very sexy one and that's one reason why I love him. Don't know if that's TMI.
