I don't care if the actor who plays Jacob is Dutch and Irish as long as he looks like Jacob. I wasn't the one bringing up his heritage, I'm only saying that while it is true MC is Filipino, TL is not 100% Native American either. I agree that's no reason to cast or fire an actor, but just as it's a bad reason to get rid of Taylor, it's a bad reason not to hire Copon, if he is the best for the role.
You may not care but the Native American fans that I have talked to do. and if people say "stay true to the book" well damn, stay true than. Obviously, Taylor has some Native & can actor the part.
Taylor is smaller than both Solomon and Krys. Younger too. There's much that can be done with both of those actors, who don't look young to begin with. Taylor's got a baby face, you've got to admit. There's no reason to have to re-cast Solomon and Krys- my only hope is that these two actors can actually act, since "The Cullens don't come here." isn't a whole lot to go on.
Taylor is 16, Krys is 17 & solomon is like 20 something. both krys & taylor have baby faces. that was the main reason why they were cast because they fit the role. if krys & solomon shouldnt be re-cast then taylor shouldnt either. i mean, solomon/sam was already supposed to be a werewolf/ shape-shiftier in twilight yet he did not fit the looks of it. krys/embry turns too in NM before taylor/jacob yet he's still there. im just saying, if summit is going to say all this stuff about taylor, well then look at the other two people as well.
End of story? Summit is going to do whatever they want. I am not the only fan they have to please, nor are you, or any of us. They have to find some way to make not only US happy, the fans, but those who haven't read the books and likely won't read the books. The boyfriends, the husbands, the skeptical co-workers we dragged to the movie, these people have to be entertained too.
you're right, they dont have to make us happy. but then again, we are the reason why twilight is so big. so they SHOULD make us happy. & to people who havent read the book and only watch the movie, i would think these people will find it strange to see one actor portray a role in the first only to see another play the same role in another film. in happens all the time in other films, then again, this is twilight!!
RPatz vs. Taylor Lautner?
they can totally pull it off. the stare at the end of twilight between the two, convinced me.
okay im done arguing. it was fun while it lasted.
