Twilight’s Taylor Lautner Talks About Possible New Moon Replacement

UPDATE: Taylor will be keeping his job after all.

If Taylor Lautner’s really at risk of losing his job, the actor is not going to go down without a fight. Or at least an extra push-up.

In an interview last week with MTV, the 16-year-old addressed rumors that he may be left out of the upcoming sequel. According to a recent report in Entertainment Weekly, the studio was looking to find someone else to tackle Jacob Black’s beefier role in New Moon. Since that time, Michael Copon (Scorpion King 2) and Ben Barnes’ (Prince Caspian) names have been thrown out as possible replacements. (Copon has even gone so far as to imply on his own Facebook page that he was already given the role.)

J.J. Abrams makes plans to direct/produce new Star Trek movie. William becomes upset about not being involved. J.J. claims they tried to include the original Captain Kirk. Shatner denies ever receiving an offer.

So now here we are with Round 4. In this interview with , Abrams says the Boston Legal star never received an offer because they never tried to make him one. J.J. explains (once and for all?) that the writers wanted to include him in the film, they just couldn’t see a feasible way to make the script work.

So do you agree with Abrams’ reasoning…or do you think they should have included Shatner anyway?
