Who Should Play Jacob?



There is talk of re-casting Taylor Lautner who was Jacob in Twilight.

The studio doesn't want to rehire baby-faced Taylor Lautner as Jacob, though Lautner's agent has apparently reached out to the ­imaging company behind The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in an attempt to demonstrate to Summit how a digitally bulked-up Lautner could work. (Summit says it won't make a decision until a new filmmaker is on board.) There’s also the matter of finding a cast of Native American actors to play Jacob's werewolf clan - a difficult challenge [director Catherine] Hardwicke was also faced with before ­settling on Lautner, who isn’t completely ­Native American.

Two sources tell EW the studio doesn’t want to rehire baby-faced Taylor Lautner (pictured) as Jacob, though Lautner’s agent has apparently reached out to the ­imaging company behind The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in an attempt to demonstrate to Summit how a digitally bulked-up Lautner could work. (Summit says it won’t make a decision until a new filmmaker is on board.) There’s also the matter of finding a cast of Native American actors to play Jacob’s werewolf clan — a difficult challenge Hardwicke was also faced with before ­settling on Lautner, who isn’t completely ­Native American. And with a slightly increased budget of $50 million — much of which is ­assumed will go to leads asking for heftier paydays, location shoots in Italy, and ramped-up F/X — Summit will have to scrimp somewhere.

Taylor Lautner or
Michael Copon

Personally I hate the idea of a recast. Even though Edward is missing much of New Moon I think if given the opportunity and with digital tweaking Taylor will be awesome.
