Michael Copon On New Moon & Replacing TaylorMay 5th, 2009 | By Krystal | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
Your favorite actor is back! (Haha, I know how much you all loved his statements a few months ago). This time Michael Copon talked to Reelz Channel about New Moon and how he didn’t get the part (Yay! Um, I mean, that’s too bad… 🙂 )
“You may remember him — he’s the guy who was rumored to replace Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black in the Twilight sequel New Moon.
I asked him if that was real or rumor, and he told me it was 100% true. It was a tense back-and-forth during casting, but we all know who got the role in the end. Copon told me he really, really wanted to get the role, but that he is happy for Lautner: “There are no hard feelings between Taylor and me — we are friends.”
He also said that he and Lautner have the same talent agent, which according to IMDb is Thor Bradwell from William Morris agency. While it was a win-win for Thor, Copon — now bitten buy the Twilight bug — will have to see New Moon in theaters like the rest of us mortals.”
