Taylor Lautner Secures 'New Moon'

Taylor Lautner Secures 'New Moon'

The much-loved Taylor Lautner will be staying on to play the popular werewolf character Jacob Black in New Moon, the sequel to the blockbuster film Twilight.

Director Chris Weitz posted on author Stephenie Meyer‘s official site, saying, “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.”

He continues, “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.”

Stephenie adds, “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.”

Michael Copon was rumored to take on the role of Jacob but Taylor obviously beat him out!

    AWESOME! he’s perfect for Jacob! Seriously, so many people wouldn’t have seen the movie if he didn’t get the role. i mean how could they change the actor after the first movie was made. it just wouldn’t be right! Taylor did a great job and i’m sure he’ll be awesome in this movie too.

    Can’t wait for New Moon!

    nicolem Says:

    I know it’s important for an author to have his or her say when their book is turning into a movie. But he had to “prove” himself to her? Wow…If they left the casting up to Steph..she would probably get rid of them all. I really did enjoy the Twilight series but for some reason every time Steph says something she just annoys me. Maybe it has to do with her acting like a six year old when Midnight Sun was leaked. (Her own fault for putting it in the wrong hands–doesn’t matter if you trusted the person, you still might get screwed.

    haha. and that other person called michael coupon or something, was so sure that he was going to get the part saying “taylor lautner is around 120 pounds, so i will have to lose abit of weight….yeah…mhmmmm”. Being so self assured. writing “im in the twilight zone’ on his facebook. HA. I BET THAT FREAK IS FEELING SO STUPID RIGHT NOW.!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHHAHA

    stefanie Says:

    I’m glad that they are keeping Taylor, but I think they are going too fast with a sequel. I fear it is going to suck.

    And the first movie, Twilight, was just okay. Not as good as the book.

  43. 43
    postwatcher Says:

    All the readers’ imaginations helped fill in the blank spaces in this very poorly written series of books.

    If you want a real good and well written book, read “Interview With a Vampire”.

    Stephenie is lucky that the world of media is full of crappy quick buck making drivel. She never would have sold her novels 20 years ago.

    Stephen King has more talent in his toe jam than Stephenie.

    Congrats to Taylor though. He deserves to keep this role.

    Cachie Says:

    absolute perfection!!!! THIS MAKES ME LIKE CHRIS WEITZ EVEN MORE.. i heard Catherine didn’t like listening to Rob’s suggestions while filming Twilight and that kinda got me pissed off.. i loved the movie, but i still think a lot of things were missing.. you can’t really see how much Edward and Bella really NEEED and LOOVE eachother as you can in the books. so i hope Chris can portray his departure the way it made me feel when i read the book. if i don’t cry, he did a ****** job. lol but i cant wait !! 11.20.09 <3

    twilight is a rather obscure book that in my country, but i got talked into watching the movie anyway (free tickets) and it was terrible. the worst thing i’d seen in a long time. it just dragged on and on, it was so cheesy and those two couldn’t act to save their lives… one of my friends got so irritated she actually got a headache. i’m never watching anything from that saga again.

    I’m so glad Taylor is going to be Jacob. He’s perfect for the part. As for the height issue, how do you suppose they make Hagrid look tall in the HP films? It’s all camera angles and CGI effects. If Summit spends a little money everything will be fine.

    Pamela Says:

    GOOD. Those comments that Michael Copon kept making made him sound like he was so up himself. If he replaced Taylor, I would have had a right fit. Even though Taylor certainly isn’t perfect for the part, he is a much better than that arrogant, talentless Michael Copon.

  88. 88
    TwilightAngel33 Says:

    In normal time, I think I would have been rather sceptical about this choice, as Taylor has actually not the necessary build the to interpret this role, compared to Copon. But here it is, the young boy has already become “soaked” with the role of Jacob Black, and as Chris Weitz says it, he is made for this role and “is” literally Jacob Black, just as there are many indisputable things in life. Moreover, the “feeling” between Michael Copon and the public is not the same as Taylor’s one, “New Moon” just doesn’t shine in the same way if MC plays Jacob, at least in my eyes, and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only to think that, in my opinion. Finally, I seriously believe that Taylor Lautner will save us a lot of eyes in ” New Moon”, as he’s no doubtly well aware of what his commitment implies.

    sumiko YAMADORI Says:

    I am happy Taylor Lautner beat out Michael Copon for the role of Jacob. Michael Copon in interviews is too phoney. Taylor Lautner is respectful and polite, a good guy with much talent to show.
    He is much the better actor. Michael Copon is too old and out of shape for the role. Taylor is becoming a muscleman. Just like character of Jacob should be in the second movie.
    He is better actor too.
    Michael Copon in Scorpion King II was total joke, as was that whole movie.
    Steven Strait would have been good Jacob…but Taylor is the best

    dryden Says:

    Thank GOD! I’m really glad they’re keeping him on as Jacob Black. He seems to fit the role really well. He was very easy going and natural in the few scenes that he was in for Twilight. Plus, since Edward’s barely in New Moon (and therefore, Rob will barely be in the movie), I’m stoked that they’ve got Taylor playing Jacob. If I’ve gotta deal with the fact that Rob’s not gonna be in many scenes, then there better be someone good in his place. Lol.

    Congratulations! to Taylor Lautner for landing the role of jacob black in both films Twilight and New Moon. I don’t think there could have been anyone better to play jacob than him. I can’t wait to see him in new moon and eclipse. i’m glad that i am going to be able to see his character more.He is so young and he has proven to be a good actor…rising star. By the way he is looking great!

    This Is The Greatest News Ever!! I Love Taylor…. He Is the One And Only Native American Guy Whom Would Make The New Moons Jacob Black…Great..!
