While Ben Barnes, the Prince Caspian of 'Chronicles of Narnia' sequel, looks forward to get the role of Aro, Michael Copon of 'The Scorpion King 2' aims to replace Taylor Lautner in 'New Moon'.

As soon as Summit Entertainment came out with the official release date of "New Moon", casting reports for the first "Twilight" sequel rushes in. In the latest update of the sequel, MTV News has confirmed that both "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" star Ben Barnes and "The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior" actor Michael Copon are on the run to star in the movie.

27-year-old Barnes reportedly is eyeing to join the vampire drama series as a mind-reading vampire named Aro whose encounter with Edward and Bella in the movie helps to shape their destiny together. Meanwhile, 26-year-old Copon is campaigning to play the new Jacob Black the studio are looking for in replacement of Taylor Lautner.

On the omission of Lautner's name from "New Moon" official synopsis, Summit revealed to MTV that it is intentional and was not a typographical error. Explaining on the matter, the studio's representative shared, "The casting decision in regards to the character Jacob Black has yet to be made."

Following the romantic story between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen once again, "New Moon" will focus on personal conflict Bella experiences. Left devastated by the abrupt departure of Edward, she is drawn to Jacob Black, who happens to be one of the werewolves, the ancestral enemies of the vampires.

The production is scheduled to begin in the coming months for November 20, 2009 release. Penned by "Twilight" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, this next Summit romance drama will be directed by "The Golden Compass" director Chris Weitz and sees the return of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart as the unlikely lovers.

Honestly, you cannot change an actor you had in the first movie to someone completely different in the second. That kind of change is very very tacky. Secondly, there are ways to make Taylor look bulky... 1. Taylor could seriously lift weights. (non stop). 2. They can digitally make him look more muscular and taller for that matter. OH and NO you CANNOT have two different actors in the same movie play the same character.

I think that Taylor should play the younger Jacob and have Michael Copon play the older Jacob because older Jacob should be huge, big, and muscular. :] Taylor seems a bit small for me. TEAM MICHAEL! :]
posted by Selene on Jan 06, 2009
Lei, Ben is rumored to be running for the role of Aro, not Jacob. But I agree with you about the Taylor issue. You guys should stop exaggerating that he makes a perfect Jacob when he clearly wouldn't in New Moon. And all that cursing-Michael is just laughable! Remember what happened when it was announced that Robert was cast for the role of Edward? Major upheaval!!! Yet, now most of us Twilighters just so fuckin' love him. That's what would happen if Michael does get cast. He would grow on you guys once you get to meet him and see him look and act as the older Jacob.

STEVEN STRAIT from "The cOvenant" is really hot and very handsome.. He's got the height, muscles and he kinda Looks Like Taylor in some angLe.. I'm not saying Copon and Barnes are ugly.. They don't just have that appeal to convince me.. <pEace Out!>
posted by Lei on Jan 05, 2009
for me, neither of Barnes or Copon wouLd be a good replacement for Taylor.. Taylor did a really good job in the "twilight" movie.. that's why many people just love him.. but guyz, be reasonable enough.. Taylor may build the muscles needed for "big" Jacob.. but the height just can't do it.. and i really doubt that he could really work out to be that big enough as described in the book.. Let's just wait for other movies where Taylor would be staring again, alright? ---but i've got this suggestion though. why don't they choose STEVEN STRAIT

thats not fair...i read ashley greene's argument about keeping taylor and shes absolutely right! MOST OF THE CAST DONT HAVE THE APPROPRIATE PHYSICAL SHAPE FOR THEIR CHARACTER..

I don't like the idea of Micheal playing Jacob at all!! I would way rather see Steven Strait play the role as Jacob. Seeing as to how he is way hotter, and the movie would get better ratings if the guy was better looking. I didn't really care for Taylor as jacob either, but that's just my opinion.

ok, you people who want Taylor soo bad in new moon, there's no way u read that book! read the book and Jacobs description! Taylor does not fit it AT ALL! Jacob is huge! hes like 6ft something almost 7! and very broad! if u read new moon u would defiantly understand that it would be totally stupid to have young 5'6 Taylor as Jacob Black!

Oh and I think Michael Copon would be aawesome as the older Jacob!! ^.^ I don't understand why some people are sticking to Taylor, he doesn't look 25 like he should be!

I absolutely adore ben barnes, but i never thought of him as aro and i thought aro wouldnt be so good looking, so if ben gets the role i will be very interested in his character further more :]
posted by erika on Dec 26, 2008
well honestly i think dis micheal copon guy is PERFECT to be a new,older jacob black!he rili can act i can tell u that,and he has dis husky voice too,hes 26,he's tall,hes a muscled guy and he kinda had a trace of taylors face in him juz lyk he's a grown up taylor.i min maybe some of you just didnt like him bcoz u barely know him or u juz didnt want 2 let go of taylor or bout that facebook of his but i cant blame him i rili did picture him as the new jacob black while i was reading new moon,my friends think d same too,hes even perfct being halfnaked! just one look at him and u'll know hes d new moon jcob black!i thnk taylor rili need to step aside for copon coz he didnt evn got the chance now,he just have 2 accept it and same for his fans.i even figure it out before; that taylor will be replaced at the time new moon will be filmed bcoz at how much jacob change on this one! moviemagic cant even use its magic on taylor! And 4 the director ur doin a great job and decision! there are fans out there that agrees to what is best 4 this jacob blck tht nids to b replace. and im with weitz or the summit,whatever for considering this bcoz its goin to be the best descision to be make and the taylor fans juzz didnt know it YET! im not even a fan of michael copon but i rili do think he's perfect to play this role!oh and i think steven strait is too gorgeus to cast it coz he soared beyond rob pattinson 4 being good-lookin for we think that vampires is supposed to be the perfect ones.so i think michael copon is best on all the list bcoz he's not too less like taylor but not too more like steven.

seriously it taylor gets replaced im NOT seeing new moon
posted by Rachel on Dec 24, 2008
How about Kristen Chenoweth as Jane! I think that Taylor did a great job as the younger Jacob, but you've got to go with an older, bigger Jacob in New Moon. Copon looks the part but can he act? That's kind of important. As for Ben playing Aro I think that would be fine since Aro's age isn't going to make or break the story. Can you imagine the shots going back and forth between Ben and Rob as they read eachother's minds? Yes Please!
posted by Teamedward on Dec 24, 2008
First off, yes, Aro is 3,000 years old. But it says that their appearence is flawless, just like the cullens except for the fact that they are more chalky and pale then the Cullens. I think he fits the part. Ben has the hair, and the beautiful structure that could pull off a very sexy vampire. The Voultri arent old looking so you defenetly have to pick someone in their Twenties. Besides the voltri are supposed to attractive. Not some forty year old Dushce bag!! I do belive Taylor is working hard to pull it off. maybe they can digitally change him. If not, He can be in the beginning of New moon and have some other person as the older jacob. Defenitly not this guy from The Scorpion king two, he cant act. That movie looked good, but i saw it and it was horrible. Nobody could act in that movie. It was made with like a two dollar budget. I agree. Steven Straight was my original pick for jacob. He is attractive and hot! he would be perfect. At least make him a Wolf pack member. He fits the part as one. But Ben would be a good Aro, he fits the part well, as for the Taylor situation, i agree with Ashley Greene, he should stay in the movie and if not the whole part, at least in the beginning. I do believe this is Summit's Fault, i agree, Summit should have thought this threw, they shouldve known that New Moon would follow Twilight, these books are huge, no matter what anyone says. I was reading an article, that more than 23,000 Twilight books fly off the shelves each day. I always see everyone even the younger kids reading them, so they shouldve known that the movie was going to be a big hit. They shoulve thought about the casting before-hand. I bet Ben Barnes gets the Aro part but hopefully this other jerk dont

posted by haveureadthebooks on Dec 23, 2008
Obviously most of the fans responding are very young teens. Taylor is way to young to continue playing Jacob. He barely looks like he has reached his teens. Plus Jacob should have a touch of a wild side. No matter how much working out Taylor does, his pretty boy looks will never be edgy enough to pull off a believable, not to mention attractive transformed Jacob.

SCREW YOU PEOPLE! Ugh i love Taylor Launter as Jacob Black. I don't see anyone else playing that role except Taylor. Replacing Jacob would REALLY piss off fans. Some of my Jacob Fan friends are saying that they won't even bother seeing New Moon if Taylor is to be replaced. Sooo... They can't replace him... That would be a sin!
posted by Selene on Dec 22, 2008
It's never mentioned in the books about Aro's "physical age" and since he's got black hair, he could have been turned into a vampire before old age. So, Ben can pull this off imo. And I agree with Ranthony & Yeahallie, even assuming Taylor continue bulking up, he wouldn't be able to look beyond 20. Some people have suggested getting Taylor in the beginning of New Moon and then have a new actor replace him after he first changed into a wolf. Perhaps this could work if done properly?
posted by NOOOOOOOOOO WAY!! on Dec 22, 2008
They can't replace taylor!! he is smokin hot and that's gay if you already made the first movie with him in it, you can't change his character now. these people are ridiculous they are crazy!! They can't change him!!!!!!!!!!!! if they do, they're gonna have some pretty unhappy fans to deal with!!!!!!

Ben Barnes as ANY vampire in New Moon (or Eclipse or Breaking Dawn) would be vampire-heaven to me. As if the cast wasn't steamy enough, adding Ben to the lineup would be utterly amazing! YES PLEASE!

I agree with yeahallie. while lautner did a great job in the first movie, it just seems impossible for him to do a good job as an older, taller, and more muscled jacob black. i mean, lautner is only 16. new jacob is supposed to pass for 26. and isn't aro supposed to be old?

Ok, seriously? They HAVE to replace Lautner. How the hell is he supposed to grow like two feet and get all buff and what not? Not possible. Plus, he's not even that attractive.

This is ridiculous, are they serious? If Summit listened to their fans for even a minute, they'd realise that replacing Taylor Lautner is a huge mistake. I mean, I am completely pro-taylor, but I'm ready to admit that chances are, unless Summit actually pull their heads out of their a**es, we're probably going to be incredibly dissapointed for New Moon. *sigh*

YOU CANT REPLACE JACOB. and i agree with some of these people - if you replace taylor, you'll have to replace sam and embry - neither are bulky enough, they look the same build as taylor. might as well replace EVERYONE because no one can fit the roles PERFECTLY. Taylor does a fantastic job being Jacob, and he's smoking hot. DONT REPLACE JACOB.

they cannot replace taylor even thought im team edward. i still prefered taylor . you'll have to give him a chance to play again jacob black he is a great actor. i dont like michael copon for taylor replacement. if you replace taylor the new moon will not be that popular as twilight with taylor. SO PLEASE DONT REPLACE TAYLOR BECAUSE I LOVE HIM AND THEIRS NO ONE BETTER FOR JACOB BLACK THEN TAYLOR LAUTNER SO IF YOU REPLECE HIM THE MOVIE WILL NOT BE THE SAME WITH ANYBODY ELSE BECAUSE NEW MOON NEEDS TAYLOR.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think they should replace Taylor because he is already recognized as Jacob Black and you can't just change someone in a series. The fans already have him set in their minds now and love him and not to mention he's on all the merchandise. As much as I see why they want to change the actor and I can picture Michael Copon as a bigger, older looking Jacob Black, I just don't think it's right to replace Taylor. Why doesn't Michael Copon go for the role of Sam Uley or one of the other werewolves?

I don't think it'll make any difference if they replace Taylor. There are way too many Robert's fans to make new moon a hit.

Taylor already has a large following. He has the experience and innate ability to draw people to him which is VERY Jacob - and in fact, Taylor won the hearts of many Edwardians! The fans are already attached to Taylor as Jacob and frankly, Jacob does NOT have to be 7' tall or look 25 in order for the story to flow smoothly - as long as the wolf is HUGE and Taylor can pull off "ferocity". He already proved that he could in "Twilight". Replacing him would be a HUGE mistake.

This is stupid!! TAYLOR IS JACOB. You CAN NOT just replace him like that. If you re-cast Jacob because Taylor is "boyish", too short, or not bulky enough to be a werewolf. Then you're going to have to re-cast the actors of Sam & Embry who were also in the Twilight movie. Because they also do not fit the werewolf look.
