So, now I’m officially on the fence.

I just saw the full cast list for the Twilight movie on www.stepheniemeyer.com.  In addition to that, I watched the clips from Entertainment Tonight and MTV about the making of the movie.  Now I can’t decide if I’m excited or not. 

There’s pieces that fit and pieces that don’t.  Watching the clip, Kristen Stewart is beginning to feel a little better.  Seeing her with Robert Pattinson feels pretty good (I think the height difference helps a lot  – it’s really quite perfect).  But Peter Facinelli drives me crazy (playing Carlisle) – he looks ridiculous.  The biggest bit of indecision?  Jacob of course.  Check it out:

This is the first picture I saw of Taylor Lautner who was cast.

 

 

He looks about twelve! Now I know that this is a YA read and that Jacob was younger than the rest of characters but this just threw that in my face.  So, as I was getting ready to put this post together I came across the picture below… 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So this is a little better.  But he’s still only 16 – at least in this picture he looks it.  And I’ll assume he’s growing his hair out for the part.

At any rate, I am sure that when it comes down to it I will anxiously waiting opening weekend along with everyone else.  With fingers crossed…

About Mama's a Mess

Who am I and what am I doing here? Well, at the end of the day I'm a mother and a wife, a lover of classic monster movies and comic books, of music, TV and movies. I'm a sucker for pop culture. I'm a fangirl. I'm an artist. As my husband always puts it, "Baby, you're a mess!" I have a penchant for creating and collecting. I feed my brain with a mix of anything from hot rods and pin-ups to handmade and natural. I like to dig in the dirt and grow things but sometimes picture myself doing it like Donna Reed. I will always, always choose to wear a dress first. I am head over heels in love with my husband and have a fantastically crazy life with him.

    While I was a little like, huh, the first time I saw this actor as Jacob, I’m making my peace with it now. He’s gonna be fine for the first movie (he looks much older in the second picture, and his smile is so sweet!), and hopefully if they make a second and third movie, he’ll have matured even more! He’ll be great, don’t worry! 🙂

  2. j says:

    Taylor Lautner was an excellent choice for Jacob. Not so sure about some other charachters though.

    Cant wait to see him in action as Jacob in the “Twilight” movie coming out DECEMBER 12!!!!!

  3. Brie says:

    People are really driving me crazy. I’m sick of all the “he/she doesn’t look right for the part” nonsense. Bashing Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner just because you had someone else in mind for the part is childish. You have to remember that they are PEOPLE JUST LIKE YOU AND ME. And this is a movie…it’s not going to be exactly what you pictured in your head. This is a great cast, Lautner is a great actor (as are the various others who have wrongfully recieved a bashing) and this is going to be a great movie.

  4. kissthelibrarian says:

    Um…so I really don’t think I was bashing. I hold nothing against Taylor Lautner as a person – frankly I’ve never seen him act. I was just stating an opinion and I think it’s rather ironic that I’m being called childish for it. Have you seen the EW cast photo yet? I think he looks 200% better and seems to fit Jacob really well. Does that make everyone feel better now?

  5. Brie says:

    I didn’t mean to offend anyone…It’s just that on every site I visit about the Twilight movie there are people on there saying things about the actors not fitting the parts. Naturally, I had to stick in my two cents. And when I said “you” I meant it as a collective “you”, not you specifically, kissthelibrarian.

  6. Taylor says:

    Taylor L is perfect for the part of jacob. plus, those aren’t exactly the most recent pics of him

  7. bree says:

    he will play the part perfectly anyway i do believe that the release date is november 21 now . it says that date on the official website.

  8. Ultimate Twilight Fan says:

    xD. the first pic was when he was younger and played Shark Boy in the move Shark Boy and Lava Girl {horrible movie.}

  10. Triyanka says:

    i think he’s a good choice for playing jacob’s character….i love his smile…to be precise his grin!
    😀
    he’z definitely gonna be matured by the time the other 3 movies release…so i guess he’ll fit into the character by that time.

    Awww….Can’t Wait for the movie to release!!!!!!
    This is the second Series after HP that got me totally hooked!

  40. meeeeee! says:

    i can’t believe anyone is doubting him
    taylor lautner is the hottest coolest funniest nicest person ever!!!!!!!!!
    any movie that he is in is the best movie on the history of the world!
    he is 16
    his b-day is Febuary 11
    he looks really bad with his long hair wig
    he is the voice of lots of cartoons
    he is my hero!!!
    I love you taylor lautner
    I can’t believe all these girls are like
    “Taylor Lautner is going to marry me!”
    that is so mean
    every girl who says that is lying
    cuz everyone knows that as soon as i meet him we will get marryed!
    he might not even be in the next twilight movies.
    cuz their is a new director who might not use him as jacob for the other movies
    he cant take taylor lautner from his role
    he is the best jacob ever!!
    im actually nervous for him
    but i dont know why cuz hes obviously going to get the role again!
    and btw he is soo HOT!!!
    and he is tan
    and he has shiny white teeth
    and he has an 8 pack!!!

  41. mary says:

    i love you so much…………………………. you are my life

  42. hotter than hot says:

    He is really cute. I think he was great in the movie, though the long hair totally screwed up his features. But thats Jacob I guess…

  43. taylor lautner is THE PERFECT person to play jacob, he loox great in the movie, which i’ve seen twice, and i cannot believe they might drop him, and robert! because of Robert pattinson’s WILD PARTYING! I am writing a continuation to twilight, i hope that i can get permission to get it published, and ALL U GUYS will read it, remember my name! hannah richardson mkay?! yeah p.s. it has ALOT ab/ JACOB (taylor lautner) and RENESMEE!!!!!

  44. Breanna says:

    When I first saw Taylor Lautner acting he was 14.
    It was in the movie: “cheaper by the dozen 2”. I though he was cute then ans I still think he is!! His smile is amazing 🙂 And he’s just so cool! I think he’s going to be good in twilight saga the eclips and the 4th movie ( I think there gonna make al the movies)
