This is just to say that Taylor Lautner has been signed (let me sign!) to reprise his role as Jacob Black in "New Moon". I'm not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I thought that Taylor was PERFECT for Jacob in "Twilight". He was everything I pictured Jacob being (not that I really noticed the character that much...I am deeply in love with Edward, after all), cute, friendly and sweet. In NM...I'm not so sure.
First off...I don't like Taylor with the long hair. He looks SO much cuter with his hair short....but I realize that is a character thing. Can he man up enough to compete with Edward? Jacob didn't really compute with me as anything Edward would have to worry about...until "Eclipse" (my favorite book)...it wasn't until that book that I realized that Jacob could be kinda hot and sexy....Can 17 year old Taylor pull that off? I don't know. I read that they recently did some more screen tests to see if he and Kristen had any chemistry...I suppose that is the important part, isn't it? It's not whether I can see Taylor/Jacob as a possibility...its whether Kristen can act like she really has to decide between Jacob and Edward. OK, obviously in the real world...NO FUCKING CONTEST. But, alas, this isn't the real world, is it? Not even close.
I am happy for Taylor. He realizes how important this role is to his career...and he went after it...gaining weight and working out to show Summit he could handle the part. I hope this is true.
As happy as I am that Summit wants to release "New Moon" at the end of this year (WOW), I don't want a rushed, shitty movie. Do it right, Summit. You fuckers.
Did I tell you how much I love the DARK EDWARD pictures of Rob? I need to go read Wide Awake again. And again. LOVE THAT FUCKING STORY.
That's all for now.
