he's there! so he has to be jacob black!
Thanks for pointing that out. No worries, I wasn't convinced by what Wikipedia said but it still hasn't been officially announced by Summit yet. I wish they would though and stop torturing my Taylor-loving heart.

I've seen too many interviews with Taylor all excited about becoming a werewolf so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

unless the director butchers something so horrifically, or a main part of the cast drops out.

I think the thought of that makes me sicker than the sickness I felt for Bella while reading the book!!!! :lol:
I do hope for the snowball effect though!!!!!!!
I Twilight thee....Sir Edward......
Odd I know, but I have a wild imagination.....

Going off topic for a minute - I just finished reading Midnight Sun, and OMG I dearly hope she finishes it! So many things I didn't realize about Edward. Makes the story that much more enriching.

It makes Robert's portrayal in the movie make a lot more sense, doesn't it?

Did y'all see the Rolling Stone Interview?


I really hope the sign Taylor officially soon - he's just what Jacob should be, aside from the height, and that can be faked in so many ways. But personality-wise he's everything just right.

I actually think Chris Weitz wouldn't be a bad choice. I think if he'd been able to make The Golden Compass longer it would have been fine (and it's always been one of my favorite books, so I had high expectations). At least he definitely knows how to direct young actors.

They just CAN'T get rid of Taylor. I was really disappointed that they didn't get a Native American actor for him and I'm still not totally crazy about him as Jacob, but that would still make me sad. He's so enthusiastic about this part. I could probably grow on somebody else if they found someone absolutely perfect, but at first I would be bummed for a while.

Ummm.... I'm praying this is not true because I might just have a heart attack. But you can't trust Wikipedia (or at least I can't) so I'm gonna go snooping around for a legitimate article.

EDIT: You've got it completely right, CantBreathe. I really don't want any changes in the cast. It's like breaking up a strong family :cry:

NOOOOO!!! I cannot believe they're doing this!!!! I hate Summit!!!!

I agree...I think the Golden Compass was a tall order to make into a movie, and it also met a lot of resistance from some religious groups because of the basis of the books which didn't help box office numbers at all...I think Summit is invested in this project now and will hopefully do whats best for the movies...
