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?�
