(Older) Jacob Black Casting... no more Lautner?
Currently all is looking very grim when it comes to Taylor Lautner playing Jacob Black in New Moon. Several actors are up for consideration by Weitz, including 26-year old actor Michael Copon who is best known for his role in the movie Scorpion King 2. An MTV article puts it this way,"...actor Michael Copon is one of several actors Weitz is considering to play the new, larger Jacob Black." This could suggest that Lautner will still play the younger (or, less buff) Jacob Black, but when his over night transfermation to the new Jacob Black takes place that a different actor will take over the role.
Your dream New Moon Cast?
