Ugh...I can't even LOOK at this!!
Okay so I saw the movie and Taylor was PERFECT!!! I was a little iffy at first about him being my favorite character, but he really surprised me! He's SUCH a good actor it nearly made me fall out of my seat. He didn't have a big role, of course, but I'm looking forward to him in New Moon. He's just so GREAT!!! I mean, he has the smile, the voice, the body, the eyes, the hair, the height...why does Summit want to replace him so badly??? Yes, I understand that in New Moon he grows a lot and gets more muscle, but who cares? Taylor can work out and he'll grow, too. And if it's not enough, I say use special effects. It shouldn't be that hard to press a few buttons to give him a little height, right?
The pictures below are of Michael Copon, who Summit is considering getting as Jacob.
Copon is getting pretty competative trying to take the role Jacob away from Taylor. I saw on Flickr.com (type in 'Jacob Black' to see more pictures) that they are calling Michael Copon a 'Gay Porn Star'. Now of course you can't believe EVERYTHING you read, but on the picture on top, of course you see bare arms and legs. I don't like the idea of Michael Copon being Jacob and I just want Taylor. From the way he poses in pictures, Copon just doesn't look nice or caring like Jacob. He reminds me of the kind of person who is rude to fans, kisses his muscles and car good-night, etc. ;) He just seems phoney.
And Taylor, if Summit gives him a chance, will be perfect for New Moon Jacob!!! He's already gained 19 lbs for the role (now THAT is dedication!!!) and you can see that he aged from the beginning of filming towards the end. He still has time to prepare for being 'New Moon Jacob' and Summit should just wait! I honesty don't mind waiting a few more months for the movie to come out if it means Taylor can be in it. It will be worth the wait.
Who agrees with me?
*UPDATE* December 27, 2008 I posted a question on the Jacob Black spot, asking about recent pictures so we could see how Jacobish he looks. And Saul_Mikoliunas (thanks again luv u!!!) sent me a link to a website with a few pics of him. HE IS HUUUUUUUUUUUGE!!!!! He looks so great. I'm so proud of him! Check it out! He looks VERY Jacobish!!!link
Gross. He looks like SUCH a girl.
