Taylor Lautner to play Jacob Black

Discussion about the Twilight movie. It's all speculation until Summit Films actually produces a script and casts it.

Jacob is so HOT! My only worry is that he's hotter than Robert...

10X BETTER

Post by *Edward's Isabella* »

Although I think that Taylor is super hot and that he'll be a decent Jacob, Steven Strait would have been 10X BETTER!!!!!

I think this is another excellent, and very smart cast! Taylor, IMO, looks like Jacob, at least the Jake in my head!

And, you know, I can see that smirky, sarcastic, against the rules look in him, which is so totally Jake kwim?

I, for one, can't wait to see him in action! I think he will do a great job! And, wow, he's WAY hot!

Do you notice how much taylor lautner resembles a wolf??

Honestly, i think the casting for Jacob is okay. He suits it.
But the first thing i noticed in Taylor Lautner: was how he so very muchly resembled a wolf when he crinkles his face up to smile!

O: may sound cheesy but he looks a bit like a puppy.

Although he may not be any part Native American, we'd be able to decipher because of his dark features. The movie casters did a great job, i think.
its just his acting that we're not sure of; he needs to be exceptional for the emotional and rampant feelings Jacob displays in New Moon and Eclipse.

other than that, Taylor Lautner will be fine.
he looks like a cute wolf, anway.
"Bella, would you <i>please</i> stop trying to take your clothes off?"
"Do you want to do that part?"

we all stop swearing, use "yes" rather than "yer", use longer words in our vocabulary, and regain our manners' consciousness...but we'll never find someone who <i>talks with a flow of perfect, formal articulation, picked up in an earlier century.

Taylor is what i pictured when i saw Jacob Black all happy :) his smile and laughter is contagious and i think he can really pull it off :D

i totally agree.
the way he scrunches up his face and his eyes crinkle up!
that makes me giggle sometimes, its <i>very</i> contagious.
but he ceases to amaze me of his resemblance to a wolf pup.

ahh i SO agree.
LOL.

but anyways, i think taylor is a VERY good choice for jacob. very nice.

and, just gotta throw this out there....i was just looking him up the other day and i was looking at imdb.com and i saw that he was born in grand rapids, mi. and he used to live in michigan.

well, guess who live in grand rapids?

:lol:
yes, THAT'D BE ME!

hahaha I LOVE IT! he needs to come home sometime, lol. who wants to live in california, pshhhhh...

:D

Man, this guy has grown up since his days as Shark Boy. :)

Taylor, so far, seems good for the role. We won't know for sure until 12/12 or until they release a clip with him in it, but I like what I'm seeing so far. I think he'll be a good mix of "friendly" and "fierce." His interviews have shown that he is a pretty down to earth guy, which is what Jacob needs to be. And the videos of his mad karate skills (as seen on youtube) have proven him to be able to strike fear into just about anyone. Bring on the intimidation!

Wow, I didn't know what about Taylor -- the karate stuff! I'll have to check that out. It is nice to know he has a tough side. He is going to need to channel that going toe-to-toe with Rob, ya know? lol :) I really think he is looking more and more promising the more I see/read about him.... and like I said.... I don't want that! j/k ;)

That's another great thing about casting Taylor as Jacob. He looks so perky, happy and friendly, it doesn't even come across your mind that he might have a tough-guy alter ego. Kind of like Jacob - many layers to the character.

I have faith in his acting chops. I'm sure he's going to be great in TW. When NM comes up, he'll have matured into the role and will probably do another fantastic job.
