I think that Taylor Lautner is a good actor to play Jacob Black. In Twilight Jacob isn't very old. And is still like a little kid. About not being tall enough right now, yeah, he is kind of short to be a Jacob. When it comes to him going through a big growth spurt in the books, I am sure the director will figure out a way to make him taller. Its not that hard to do. I am all for Taylor being Jacob. I am sure that doing this film will help with his acting skills for later on in life.
I ♥ Jacob Black.

Either they cast for the last three movies (that they aren't even sure are going to be made) and the first movie looks really wrong, or they cast for the first one and then figure the rest out as they go. Any age appropriate boy they would have cast (read: 20 or under-ish) is not going to be able to grow a foot overnight, so it really has nothing to do with Taylor. Also, the idea of Jacob getting bigger because of the werewolf thing really isn't all that important to the movie (I know I'll get flack for that, but it's true) - you just need to know that his body is going through changes. There are ways to show that - Taylor will get buffer, and he's going to look older (the speed at which 16 year old boys mature is ridiculous) and taller and etc.

This is my "lay off Jacob cuz he's awesome" post. Haha. :) I love him - when he's smiling, I'm smiling, which is the most PERFECT thing for Jacob ever, regardless of if he can grow like a werewolf or not. :)
Couldn't have said it better myself :D
I love Taylor <3

While I was reading the series (way before the cast list) I was picturing Taylor as Jake, so I couldn't be happier!
