Since Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke was replaced Chris Weitz, suspicion that Taylor Lautner will be replaced for his role of Jacob Black has grown. MTV News confirmed that Michael Copon is one of several actors Weitz is considering to play the new, larger Jacob.
A representative for Copon revealed that they’re making a full effort to land the role. Michael recently updated his Facebook status with: ‘Michael Copon in a Twilight Zone!’ and ‘Michael Copon is the older Jacob Black!’
A rep told MTV, ‘The casting decision in regards to the character Jacob Black has yet to be made.’ Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian actor Ben Barnes is also believed to be campaigning for the role of Aro, a mind-reading vampire whose encounter with Edward and Bella helps shape their destiny.
