Hottie Taylor Lautner just might keep the role of Jacob Black for Twilight‘s sequel, New Moon.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the 16-year-old martial arts expert and actor may have a hold on the popular werewolf character.
Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg dished to the mag about the role: “Jacob is a totally different character in New Moon. He’s a foot taller and huge â€“ and he’s supposed to look 25. It’s really a question of whether or not the same actor can play the role.” She also adds, “Everyone would love to keep him [Lautner]. We all think he’s the loveliest person ever.”
Summit Entertainment is expected to make an announcement sometime this week on whether or not Taylor gets to keep playing the werewolf in New Moon. Actor Michael Copon is the top runner in taking over the role.
