BuddyTV has a great article up about our favorite comeback kid, Taylor Lautner. The article does a GREAT job summarizing comments by the cast, and Taylor himself, about his performance as Jacob Black. It also goes on to comment about the grace under pressure we’ve seen from Taylor in the last month in the press – as promotion and publicity for New Moon increase (YAY!).
And I thought this bit was pretty funny, because I know I’ve seen it among my friends as well.
But I can’t help but be happy for Taylor: this is really his big break, and after that stint as Lava Boy–which still pops up in my head occasionally–he deserves it. The fans, it seems, have paid attention. I remember one of my friends from university, Kat, who was a RPattz fan–note, was, until Taylor came along and she switched allegiances. While it may be a slightly shallow crush, in my opinion, I think she recognizes all that he’s done to get that slot.
