Fil-Am Michael Copon to Star in Twilight’s Sequel

Fil-Am actor Michael Copon is reportedly replacing Taylor Lautner for the role of werewolf Jacob Black in the highly anticipated sequel of the box-office hit Twilight entitled “New Moon.”

The Twilight sequel has a new director following news that 53-year-old Catherine Hardwicke had been axed and replaced by Golden Compass helmsman Chris Weitz for New Moon.

Now, another replacement is about to happen. 15-year-old actor Taylor Lautner won’t be reprising his role as the werewolf Jacob Black in favor of the Filipino-American actor and model Michael Copon.

Michael is probably best known for his role in the tv series One Tree Hill and the movies Scorpion King 2 and Elevator. The Fil-Am actor was also the grand winner of VH1’s reality competition “But Can They Sing?”

Also lobbying for a New Moon role is Spanish actor Ben Barnes, best known for his title role in this year’s Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. The 27-year-old is said to be eye-ing the role of the mind-reading vampire Aro.

Filming on New Moon is scheduled to begin in February 2009.

this is Maggie, I'm a big fan of Taylor Lauther, he so fucking sexy, and a great actor,and also know that Michael Copon won't play a good role in Twilight's sequel I think it will kill the whole movie with Michael playing Taylor part in the movie Twilight.

P.S.... i would love to meet Taylor Lauther
