Taylor Lautner Replaced?

Here is an excerpt from Robert Pattinson’s recent Entertainment Weekly cover issue:

"After celebrating news that the film had already taken in more than $35 million, Summit e-mailed a letter to Twilight fans, signed by stars Pattinson and Stewart, expressing gratitude at moving forward with a sequel.

But the studio still hasn’t confirmed whether the rest of the cast will be brought aboard for New Moon. Fans are particularly invested in whether Taylor Lautner, who is markedly shorter and more boyish-looking than Meyer’s description of his character, Jacob, will return to vie for Bella’s heart.
”We are definitely talking and thinking about it right now,’ says Erik Feig, Summit’s president of production. ‘Taylor’s fantastic as Jacob in Twilight. I think when we get closer to shooting, the director is going to look at everyone as if they are brand-new to the role.’"


**Personally, I don't like Jacob until Breaking Dawn, but I think Taylor did an excellent job in Twilight and I hope that they do not replace him. Come on, it's Hollywood!!! They can make people look like anything. You can make it work Summit, we have faith in you. KEEP TAYLOR!!!

If there's one thing I hate about movie sequels, is when they change a character on you. I mean, are they thinking no one will notice? I hope they don't replace him, I loved him more in the movie than I thought I would. He did a great job! He's a keeper, in my book!

Taylor Lautner is perfect for Jacob! If they can change all the other stuff they changed, who cares if he's not tall enough for the role of Jacob in New Moon?! Keep him!

Can't they just shoot it so he looks way taller?! Like they did in the Lord of the Rings and Elf??? Really I wouldn't care if he didn't grow a foot, they should keep him and keep the characters consistent for the movie, thatz more important than trying to keep it so true to the book.

I agree with everyone here. And I have to add that Taylor playing Jacob in the Twilight movie was one of my favorite aspects. With as little has he had to work with in the movie, he made a BIG impression on me!

If they can make Hagrid look HUGE in Harry Potter - surely they can make him look larger.... I think New Moon is going to be exciting for Jacob & I really like this guy....
KEEP TAYLOR!!!

I cant believe this!!! I met taylor at the sydney convention and his body was HOT like a werewolf, if thats not the perfect adaption to a character, then tell me what is! Im sure they have made characters in other movies that can help with this problem, even though I dont see that there really is one. They dont have to re-do it exactly as Stephenie Meyer has written.

Team Taylor all the way!!!!
