I have a the opposite opinion on the casting of Jacob Black in the sequel of New Moon. While I love Taylor Lautner and though he made a great Jacob, I'm not sure he's the man for the second movie. Now keep an open mind. He is a great little Jacob but he is not big enough or old enough looking for the MAJOR transformation Jacob goes through. He can start off in the sequel but the character has to change and look at this video to see why...
As you see in the video he is tiny. Gorgeous yes but TINY. Look at this chart made by a fan and you can see height wise it just won't work. he can bulk up all he wants but it will take crazy camera angles and stilts to make it right.
Michael Copon to me looks just like and older Taylor Lautner. Which is what we need. Someone who makes Taylor live on in our memories but we need taller and older. Remember in the second book he is described as looking something like 25.
Now look at these pics of Michael and Taylor and tell me that they don't look like brothers at least.
Both insanely hot! So if this is the new guy, and no one has said he is. I am excited. Now if they tried to change any of the Cullens that don't change at all I would be FREAKING out. So I am Team Vampire! And team steamy Copon for Bella to kiss!
