MSNBC says that Taylor Lautner is ready to take his place as the new hunk in New Moon, playing the werewolf Jacob, who befriends Bella, and their relationship becomes, well, complicated.
They say that Taylor's ready to take his shot at Bella's love interest:
The clean-cut Lautner added 30 pounds to his frame to help him unseat Pattinson and appear worthy of Bella’s affections.
Ashley Greene (plays Alice Cullen) and Kellen Lutz (plays Emmett Cullen) confirmed some important details from the New Moon movie script. Here's what they told Access Hollywood:
- There will be a yellow Porsche in the movie.
- They both will be returning to take part of the film.
- Taylor Lautner will indeed play the part of Jacob.
Still no official word yet on whether Dakota Fanning will have a part in the movie.

Taylor Lautner played Jacob Black in the Twilight movie, but rumor has it that his job is in jeopardy for the upcoming New Moon movie.
Taylor has been working hard to keep the role, by working out diligently, trying to add some weight to his otherwise slight frame.
Taylor told MTV about his efforts:
"I have been working out. I've been working out since the day we finished filming 'Twilight.' I just weighed myself today; I've put on 19 pounds," the noticeably larger Lautner told us, promising that he'll be big enough to fit Stephenie Meyer's physical description of Jacob Black in "New Moon" when cameras begin rolling in 12 weeks. "I'm guaranteeing Weitz 10 more [pounds] by filming. I get to meet Chris on Friday, in two days, so I'm excited. I'm going to have lunch with him."
