Taylor Lautner isn't even completely Native American.
I, agree with Malaz, who I feel is one of the voices of reason on this board.
CGI might work but is TOO expensive!!!! Summit would spend all of the money made on Twilight just to do CGI on Taylor! Can you imagine the hours that would take? This is absurd. Every single scene with Jacob would have to be done CGI- that's a LOT of CGI.
They will recast Jacob, and the rest of us are just going to have to deal with it. End of story.
Jacob needs to be a leading man- he needs to be able to lead most of this movie- I just don't think Taylor is there yet.
Here, here. I agree with you Deja and Malaz! I feel the exact same way. Seems like we all need to just move on with what ever decission is made and live with it. I don't mean to piss anyone off, but it seems like we just keep going in circles with this whole topic.
I'm going to jump on the bandwagon of reason here. We are definitely going in circles and there is almost no point to getting so worked up about this. Feel free to send letters and emails to Summit and let them know your opinion. Online petitions, however, never amount to a hill of beans. If Taylor hears of them I'm sure they would mean a lot to him, though.
Think about what Summit knows:
1) Pretty much any changes they make...they are guaranteed to have a knockout opening weekend
2) They know that they can get away with changing things or making unlikely casting decisions and the majority of the fanbase will learn to love it (see: Rob, vast variety of things that are different from book to screen)
Things I think Summit is thinking:
1) The CGI involved for Taylor is too expensive. Especially considering how much of the budget will be going toward f/x for the werewolves. It's just an unnecessary expenditure.
2) While Taylor is cute, he is no match for Rob. Imagine if they hire someone capable of true heartthrob status. It would push the movie through the roof. Two mega hotties battling it out for the love of one ordinary girl! $$$
Bottom line is they need to make a decision and soon. You never know. What if whoever they cast, if they re-cast, for Jacob ends up being awesome? Are you more interested in having Taylor stay Jacob no matter what or what is best for the saga?
