As much as we love Taylor Lautner because, let’s face it, he did a kick ass job in New Moon by bulking up and giving us the Jacob we all love and want to marry; however, was he the person you originally pictured when you were reading the books? Let’s see shall we! If you had to choose any other person to play Jacob Black, who would it be?

    actually I first began reading the books after New Moon, so I haven’t really imagined Jacob in any other way.

    I can’t really picture any one else as Jacob other than Taylor Lautner. He does such an amazing job and has really taken over the character of Jacob! I’m so glad they didn’t change him to MC. Taylor’s doing an amazing job!

    It’s a really interesting question for me. I saw the movies first and, when I read the books, I tried to picture Taylor as Jacob saying those lines from the book all the time, but I couldn’t do that all the time. Even if, comparing the description with Taylor’s face features, I found him to be more that right for the part. I sometimes had another idea of Jacob, that is similar to absolutely nothing I found on the net to be as cast for the part. It’s someone darker-skinned and taller than Taylor. Also, with a bigger smile. I also found that Steven Strait is completely unsuitable for the part. One can obviously see he’s white, not an Indian.

    Wow, did I not fill this out? Ok, so when Taylor Lautner was cast, I wanted to march over to Summit and set it on fire. I’m not going to lie, I did. I thought he was too small and just all wrong. He redeemed himself in New Moon though and I think he’s doing a damn good job as Jacob, but was he my ideal? No. And I don’t think anyone could play the Jacob I see in my head. I can’t choose any actor or model (including Taylor) to bring him to life because he’s just one of a kind unfortunately. However, if Taylor was like 6’1″ then maybe I’d feel different.
