Aside from the obvious reason (ahem,they’re portraying some the character’s best friends in The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse), Chaske Spencer (“Sam Uley”) and Alex Meraz (“Paul”) have their own opinions on the whole “Team Jacob”/”Team Edward” scenario.
Talking with the L.A. Times, the two explain their reasons why they think “Bella” should choose “Jacob.”
Says Spencer, “He’s the boy next door. But he can also rip your head off . . . He’s a protector. What more could a girl ask for?”
Says Meraz, “He’ll treat her good, he’ll take care of her . . . He’s a good friend. Why would you want someone who is conflicted and doesn’t know if they love you or not? It’s like a love-hate relationship — ‘I love you, but I don’t want to hurt you.’ Instead you can have someone who is legit and is down to do anything for you. It’s like, ‘Momma would be happy.’ Jacob is someone you can take home to Mom.”
