Taylor Lautner Wanted To Save His Role In Twilight
Will Taylor Lautner remains as Jacob Black, the werewolf friend/lover of Bella in Twilight? Or Scorpion King 2 lead actor, Michael Copon will replace the fan favorite as the more mature Jacob Black in the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon?
Eversince the replacement of Catherin Hardwicke by Chris Weitz to direct New Moon, there has been rumors that its not the end of the replacement sessions. Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had been signed up for the lead role of Edward and Bella but the others had not been so sure in maintaining their roles on the fan favorite Twilight saga.
Taylor had been reportedly working out to add up some pounds to sustain his Jacob Black role. He told MTV on Wednesday night at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Salute to Young Hollywood party, "I have been working out. I've been working out since the day we finished filming Twilight. I just weighed myself today; I've put on 19 lbs."
He will have a meeting to the new director Chris Weitz to make up his case. Though he's the fan favorite for the role he's not yet signed for the same role on New Moon. Lots of fan really want him to be Jacob Black till the end of the series and all his co-stars too.
