Ben Barnes as Aro
I think that Ben will NOT be a good Aro. He is just too young looking for the part. It's been awhile since I read NM but isn't Aro like really really old? Why can't he just play the role of Demetric? I think Ben will be prefect for him. Maybe Ben wants to play Aro because he has more lines?
Taylor Lautner/Michael Copon as Jacob
Okay this is just making me go crazy. I mean, what was the point of casting Taylor only to replace him? If Michael really wanted to play Jacob, well damn, he should have just audition for the role in the first place. Taylor got the role, therefore he should remain as Jacob all the way. The only reason why Taylor is getting replaced is because
1)he has a "boyish" look
2)the fact that he isn't full Native American
3)he's not tall
4)he's not bulked up
(I think that's all, well the main ones at least)
Okay let me break down all the reasons.
1)Taylor's boyish look is what makes him Jacob. Jacob is 2 years younger than Bella. Plus Taylor doesn't really look all the younger from Kristin. So maybe during the whole Twilight Movies, he's boyish look will grow into a more mature look.
2)This is a stupid reason. Taylor clearly stated that he has some Native in him from his mom's side. On the other hand, Michael Copon is Filipino & German. There is no trace of Native in Michael. So Summit is just contradicting themselves.
3)Taylor is only 16. The boy will grow in time. Until that happens, use some damn CGI on him or camera angles to make him seem taller. It's freakin Hollywood. If you guys can make the world come to an end & kill everyone, you can make a 16 year boy look taller.
4)Same as above. Plus, Taylor has been hitting the gym to bulk up. You have to give him some credit for that. & look at the actor who plays Sam. He's not even tall or bulky in the Twilight movie & he was already suppose to be a werewolf. & Summit is complaining about Taylor? What's up with that?
Is it just me or does it seem like the only reason why Ben Barnes & Michael Copon want to be in NM is to help their careers? Because Twilight blew up out of nowhere & now look at everyone in the cast. They're all big stars. Maybe Ben & Michael want a taste of fame as well.
Edward missing during 2/3 of the movie
I personally have no problem with Edward being out of the film. If us fans want Summit to stay true to the books then Edward should be gone. I mean, didn't you all feel the excitement of Bella & Alice racing to save Edward. & was I not the only one cheering on Bella as she ran to save him before he walked out into the sun? Now just imagine that come to life. You can see it on the big screen & with Edward gone during the movie, it causes a bigger affect from us all. I think the only time they should show Edward in the movie, is when Bella is hearing his voice. They should switch to showing Edward's eyes every time Bella hears him saying her name. & when he starts to yell at her, then they should switch to his mouth speaking the words...you know?
