Jackson Rathbone Talks New Moon and Taylor Lautner
10.22.09 by REELZ
Jackson Rathbone, the actor behind The Twilight Saga's Jasper, spoke to MTV about the upcoming New Moon movie and Taylor Lautner's performance as teen werewolf Jacob.
On the subject of his fan-friendly co-star, Rathbone had nothing but good things to say.
Taylor Lautner really stands out in this film, and I think people are going to be really blown away by his performance. You have these great moments that Jacob just completely is winning over Bella. And it's just beautiful to see it. It's all in their eyes.
He also couldn't help mentioning Lautner's new physique, which has been a huge hit with his hordes of female fans.
Nikki Reed keeps telling everybody, and I think it's true, yeah, Lautner's got his shirt off, and he looks good with his shirt off, but you look at those eyes. You really do.
Whatever Lautner's secret is, he's certainly proved to the Summit camp that they made the right decision keeping him as Jacob. For a 17-year-old, he's got commitment on his side — and a cast and crew that are all firmly on Team Taylor.
