Another 10 pounds for Taylor Lautner to add for Eclipse

Taylor Lautner had to bulk up big time to save/keep his role as Jacob Black. With the 30 pounds of muscle added and the fans pushing for it, Taylor go to keep the role. Now he says he has another 10 pounds to go and says he will be half naked in the movie just as much as the book. Here is what he has to say about his character in "New Moon".

"The biggest thing with Jacob's physicality is, pre-transformation he's described as clumsy," Lautner said. "He trips over his own feet; he's a little kid. Then, as soon as he transforms, he all of a sudden becomes very agile. So... all of my movements together, even as simple as walking, had to have more of a presence."

Asked how much of New Moon he spends shirtless, Lautner played coy. "I'd say the same as the books. I'm not going to give you a specific percent, but the great things about this series and the movies is, we stay true to the books. So if you read the books, you know what the movie's going to look like."

Then again, he did admit to having had his body scanned for CGI purposes, although as the films progress, Lautner plans on growing physically to reflect Jacob's continual growth in the books. "I'm going to shoot for another ten [pounds]. We'll see what I can do, but I'll be working hard."

Team Jacob fans should also get used to seeing Lautner without Jacob's trademark long hair from the first film. "The long hair is definitely a wig," he said with a laugh. "I just wrapped the wig a couple of days ago; that was amazing. The whole crew gave applause. I was so happy. They're like, 'So, do you want to keep it?' I said, 'If you give it to me, I will probably burn it.'"

Off with the wig! Good for them to rid of it. It looks so fake. It hides Jacob/Taylor's handsome face.

Ooh well I'm extremely excited now! The Saga just seems to get better and better ;). Not sure how will Breaking Dawn top the next 2 films but they will manage it somehow.

I understand the muscle gain, but Jacob in the book is 6 feet 7 inches, Bella when she hugs him she's always saying how she comes up to his waist. I'm not saying he is not a great Jacob, won't be the same when she hugs him, is she taller than him in real life?
