Taylor Lautner Bulks Up For ‘New Moon’

The physique of 16-year-old Taylor Lautner is waxing as he claims to have gained 19 pounds since wrapping production on Twilight. The teenager is hoping to secure his role of Jacob Black in the sequel to the vampire romance after word that he might be replaced with a more mature-looking actor came from the film’s production company Summit Entertainment.

“I have been working out. I’ve been working out since the day we finished filming Twilight,” Lautner told MTV the day after word spread that Scorpion King 2 star Michael Copon had updated his Facebook status with the assertion that he was the favorite to take on the role of Jacob.

Lautner’s not the only one hoping to stay in the film franchise. Co-star Ashley Greene told People magazine, “He is the teen heartthrob…I’m hoping that they don’t replace him because we love him.” Well, the clock is ticking and I only hope that Taylor doesn’t roid out over this. He’s too cute for stretch marks and well…this.
