The War Continues: J - 14 Has An Interview With Michael Copon

This interview gets right to the point! BEWARE it will raise your blood pressure if your Team Taylor!

J-14: Everyone's putting you up against Taylor Lautner - why do you think you should be Jacob?

Michael: I have nothing against Taylor personally. I think he's great and tremendous at what he does. But it's just adjusting to the fact that Jacob has to grow. It's a matter of going with the storyline. It goes with the territory. I see so much in Jacob Black that I feel like wasn't brought to the first film that if I had the opportunity, I would totally create an amazing character. He's more than just a guy who walks around and smiles and likes Bella. It's just too one-sided. It's two colors and I feel like Jacob is full of a hundred colors.

J-14: Taylor's been bulking up to try to get the role. Have you been preparing in any way?

Michael: If anything, I feel like I need to bulk down. Right now I'm close to 200 pounds of muscle. Taylor's probably what, 140, if he's lucky? I'm already 200 pounds, so there's no need for me to get any bigger. Plus he's 5'6" and I'm 6'2". In the book, he grows eight inches and I'm exactly eight inches taller than Taylor. Huge difference.

The War for Jacob Black: Taylor Lautner vs. Michael Copon

**A CBA EXCLUSIVE**
By: Crstlbtrfly




Michael Copon has good reason for wanting to replace Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black in New Moon, the sequel to the box office smash hit Twilight. The first movie of the franchise has already grossed $204,215,854.00 world wide in just four short weeks. All four books of the Twilight saga are still in the top ten on both Amazon.com and at Barnes & Noble. Lastly, the doors that have opened to all of the young actors that are casted in the Twilight movies are countless. This is the chance of a life time!

So let's break it down, who will make the better Jacob Black in the upcoming film?

Michael is 6'1, 26 years old and half Filipino and German compared to Taylor at 5'9, 17 years old and part Native American, German, Italian, Irish and Mexican. Both are dark completed but neither fully Native American as Jacob is. Michael and Taylor both have extensive acting background in mostly television, Michael being best known for his roles in Power Rangers and One Tree Hill, and Taylor for his roles in Shark Boy and Lava Girl, Cheaper By the Dozen 2, and of course as Jacob Black in Twilight.

Below is a link to YouTube clips showcasing each actor and his acting skills. I want to point out that I did not choose a clip of Taylor playing Jacob so that you can judge each actor in a non-biest way.

Michael Copon: One Tree Hill

Taylor Lautner: My Own Worst Enemy

So you be the judge. Should Taylor go and Michael replace him in the roll of Jacob? Or can Taylor pull off Jacob's transformation into a werewolf for New Moon and the remaining two films?

My thoughts:

If you have spent any time with me in our forum you know that Taylor holds a special place in my little Twilight loving heart. (not in a creepy cougar after jail bait kind of way. Gees you guys!!) I would like to point out a couple of reason why I think Taylor should stay in the roll as Jacob.

The obvious, Taylor has already played the part and in my mind is the epitome of Jacob Black, sweet, stubborn, absolutely adorable and just a bit cocky. Not to mention the extent that Taylor is willing to go to keep the part, putting on twenty pounds and guaranteeing director Chris Weitz ten more by March. (ladies all of you know you would never gain 30 lbs just to be in a movie. Lol) Like I have said in some of my blogs I believe it could be disastrous to the movie franchise to replace him. It shows poor judgment on Summits part. Did they truly under estimate the massiveness of Twilight as a book and what its adaptation into a movie would be? Did they think the first movie would flop and there would be no other sequels? (I find that hard to swallow since the cast signed contracts for not just one movie but three). Why hire someone to play the part of a teenager that changes physically into a grown man if he can not pull it off?

As far as Michael Copon is concerned the recent articles that have been released are disturbing to me, and make me truly dislike the guy. Last week there was news in the Twilight fandom that Copon was posting his status on Face Book as being Jacob Black and other statements along those lines. Yet today he says to PopStar.com that the talk about him playing Jacob is nothing but rumors. Which is it Michael Copon, are you up for the part or not? It looks to me like someone is opening their mouth when he should have been quiet. Not to mention that Michael said in the same interview that he just started reading Twilight. News for you Copon you are trying to get a role in NEW MOON and you got over 2000 more pages to go in the whole Twilight series. My advise to you, stop playing with your Face Book and get to reading!!

Finally here is the last reason why I think Taylor should stay. Notice his answer compared to Jackson's. Not that there was anything wrong with Jackson's answer.



And that is what it is all about. The Twilight Fan!!

Michael Copon Comments On The New Moon Controversy


Pop Star.com has an interview with Michael Copon. The interview gives us a better idea of who Michael Copon is from his musical ability & upcoming projects to the fact that he's a Dallas Cowboy's fan. Here's an excerpt where he comment's on the NM rumors:


PopStar: Can we talk Twilight?

Michael Copon: I think that it is pretty clear that there are huge rumors going around the Internet about me up for the role as Jacob Black. At this point, they are only rumors. There are a lot of opinions going around on the Internet about this role. It is definitely a role of a lifetime and I would love to have that chance.

PopStar: Have you read Twilight?

Michael Copon: I have just started reading Twilight. Everyone kept saying that it was the best book in the world so I had to go and read it.

Time: People Who Mattered 2008



Maybe Americans aren't ready for a Mormon presidential nominee yet. But they're more than ready to anoint a Mormon as the best-selling novelist of the year. The hero of Meyer's Twilight series — and hit movie — is a vampire named Edward who doesn't kill people and declines to sleep with, or bite, his girlfriend Bella. Meyer's religious upbringing taught her something few writers grasp, that fantasies can be about restraint as well as excess. Sometimes nice girls do finish first.

Congratulations to Stephenie Meyer you're the BEST!

Just one thing though, for 2009 can we please put the 'Mormon' thing to rest. I have never heard an authors religion mentioned so much before & it's really just getting anoying. Stephenie doesn't make it an issue but the media sure does.

Rob As Jack Sparrow's Brother In 4th Pirates?


Here at CBA we don't post news from gossip sites but for this I will make an exception....

There is a rumor going around that Rob is in the running to play Captain Jack Sparrow's brother in the 4th instalment of The Pirates of the Caribbean. What is sweet about this is not only will Rob get to work with Johnny Depp but he will be replacing the dreaded RUSSELL BRAND!!!! We all remember Russell from the MTV awards show he hosted where he CUT ROB OFF from delivering his lines by interrupting him. Oh what justice for Rob to replace him.

The following is from Hollywood Dame:

"Russell Brand was said to be in the running along with Zac Efron, but after Brand perturbed in the Disney kingdom by slamming the Jonas Brothers and their dedication to chastity...he is due to be replaced. Current front runner is the new hotness, Robert Pattinson. With his massive and still growing fan base, Disney wants his appeal to ensure the success of another pirate movie. Fingers are crossed for a 2011 start date."

A Closer Look At Chris Weitz

MTV's Larry Carroll asks, '"Who is Chris Weitz?" & takes a closer look at him.

Despite fan fears that a male director might not be able to connect with the love-struck mind-set of Bella Swan, filmmaker Chris Weitz is probably feeling quite close to his main character right now, as he enters pre-production for "New Moon."

He's the new kid at Forks High, similarly hoping that he'll make friends and become a straight-A student. Now, in order to talk the millions of "Twilight" fans into taking him to the prom, he's begun cozying up to them in biology class.....


Larry goes on to give details about Chris Weitz's background & career.

Rob Is # 4 On MTV News' Men Of The Year List

Robert Pattinson

2008 Highlights: Starred as Edward Cullen in a little movie by the name of "Twilight," which bowed in November to record receipts and mass hysteria ... Mobbed by fans at Comic-Con in San Diego ... Sang a pair of songs on the "Twilight" soundtrack ... Temporarily lost his hearing at the "Twilight" premiere in Hollywood ... Invited "Twilight" fans to hurl themselves at him ... Subject of innumerable bits of fan fiction too risque and/or disturbing to reprint here ... Has amazing hair ... Quite possibly stole actress Camilla Belle away from Joe Jonas ... Will play artist Salvador Dali in next year's "Little Ashes" ... Is so pale and brooding he might actually be a vampire.

MTV New Moon Casting News:

"Michael Copon, Ben Barnes Push For Roles In 'Twilight' Sequel: Copon is hoping to replace Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black, while Barnes is angling to play mind-reading vampire Aro.

MTV News can confirm that 26-year-old "Scorpion King 2" actor Michael Copon [pronounced "COPE-on"] is one of several actors Weitz is considering to play the new, larger Jacob Black. A representative for Copon told us that they're making a full effort to land the high-profile gig.

MTV News has confirmed that 27-year-old "Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" heartthrob Ben Barnes is throwing his hat into the ring. The actor is already quite popular with the "Twilight" fanbase and shares the same manager as both Copon and "Twilight" star Cam Gigandet. Barnes is believed to be campaigning for the role of Aro, a mind-reading vampire whose "New Moon" encounter with Edward and Bella helps shape their destiny together."

Stephenie Speaks Out About New Moon Director

Stephenie Meyer has posted a letter on her site in regards to her thoughts about Chris Weitz taking the reins on New Moon here is some of what she had to say

"They've asked Chris Weitz, director of American Pie, About a Boy, and The Golden Compass, to join us, and I am very pleased to announce that he's agreed to be a part of our Twilight world. I've had the chance to talk to Chris, and I can tell you that he is excited by the story and eager to keep the movie as close to the book as possible. He is also very aware of you, the fans, and wants to keep you all extremely happy. (Torches and pitchforks are not going to be necessary.)"

There is also a letter from Chris Weitz posted on her site stating:

"When I saw the film of Twilight, I was alternatley entranced and left hungry for more. I was also struck by the extraordinary passion for the characters, story and theme that was evident in the people sitting in the seats around me. My job is to live up to that divotion."

Hopefully we can all find a little relief knowing that About A Boy is Stephenie's favorite movie and Chris directed it. If Stephenie is excited it can't all be bad right?
