I think he's perfect for Jacob in Twilight. A lot of people complain that he doesn't look old enough, but remember Jacob is just a regular 15 year old in the first book. As the actor, is still 16 I'm sure he will mature some in real life and this could be reflected in future films. As far as size goes, this is easily acheivable with camera work and other tricks. Remember they made hobbits in Lord of the Rings? A very helpful optical illusion.

I think he potrays Jacob well, i imagine Jacob as someone looks like him (except for the long hair, but well..)
And his black belt is big plus plus for me. too bad there is no fighting scene in the movie, i'd love to see him in action xD

I actually really like this casting for Jacob. I wasn't quite sure at first glance? I mean, aside from the unstoppable lusty bad thoughts for him and the mental calculation of age differences ("Twenty five and sixteen isn't THAT huge, not REALLY...only NINE years") I was iffy and all "Hmmmmm". But then I was watching this interview with him and there's a point in there where he's smiling and laughs and my heart did that skippy beat thing because it was JACOB, right there. (laughs)

Made my day.

Oh my god!
Taylor is hot! I hope I won't change the team because of him!!! Why must he always take off his shirt? That doesn't make it easier to me. :D I mean...he is really...physically attractive...it's not fair! Robert, help me!!! :D
I hope it will give new moon as a movie!!! I want to see Taylor more often in the Twilight-Saga then he'll be shown in the twilight movie!!!

I think Taylor is going to be a great Jacob. After watching a few interviews with him and everything, my image of Jacob started to look a lot more like Taylor. Even if what I thought Jacob should be and Taylor don't see eye to eye, I really am glad that Taylor is going to be playing Jacob. Now if November could only get here sooner!!

Oooh! Did anyone see the VMAs?

Taylor was lookin' REALLY good! ;) And he and Kristen were REALLY cute together... :D

*is slowly becoming more and more convinced that this whole "Taylor as Jacob" thing just might work*

(Um... PS: So that random british dude totally cut off Rob so he couldn't even talk... :evil: )

I've seen some youtube's of him and he actually does look young to me. I think he's young enough to play Jake in Twilight.... Jake in Twilight was so young and innocent. He's perfect for him.
