For as long as he can remember, Nathan Harper (Taylor Lautner) has had the uneasy feeling that he’s living someone else’s life. When he stumbles upon an image of himself as a little boy on a missing persons website, all of Nathan’s darkest fears come true: he realizes his parents are not his own and his life is a lie, carefully fabricated to hide something more mysterious and dangerous than he could have ever imagined.
Just as he begins to piece together his true identity, Nathan is targeted by a team of trained killers, forcing him on the run with the only person he can trust, his neighbor, Karen (Lily Collins). Every second counts as Nathan and Karen race to evade an army of assassins and federal operatives. But as his opponents close in, Nathan realizes that the only way he’ll survive – and solve the mystery of his elusive biological father – is to stop running and take matters into his own hands.

From the official site: In the second installment of Stephanie Meyer’s phenomenally successful TWILIGHT series, the romance between vampire and mortal soars to a new level as BELLA SWAN (Kristen Stewart) delves deeper into the mysteries of the supernatural world she yearns to become part of – only to find herself in greater peril than ever before.
Following Bella’s ill-fated 18th birthday party, EDWARD CULLEN (Robert Pattinson) and his family abandon the town of Forks, Washington in an effort to protect her from the dangers inherent in their world. As the heartbroken Bella sleepwalks through her senior year, numb and alone, she discovers Edward’s image comes to her whenever she puts herself in jeopardy. Her desire to be with him at any cost leads her to take greater and greater risks.
With the help of her childhood friend JACOB BLACK (Taylor Lautner), Bella refurbishes an old motorcycle to carry her on her adventures. Bella’s frozen heart is gradually thawed by her budding relationship with Jacob, a member of the mysterious Quileute tribe, who has a supernatural secret of his own.
When a chance enounter brings Bella face to face with a former nemesis, only the intervention of a pack of supernaturally large wolves saves her from a grisly fate, and the encounter makes it frightening clear that Bella is still in grave danger. In a race against the clock , Bella learns the secret of the Quileute and Edward’s true motivation for leaving her. She also faces the prospect of a potentially deadly reunion with her beloved that is a far cry from the one she hoped for. With more of the passion, action and suspense that made TWILIGHT a worldwide phenomenon, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON is a spell-binding follow up to the box office hit.
Opens November 20th.
I think the same thing every time I see my friend’s little boy: She’s going to have to beat the girl’s off with a stick when he grows up. Taylor Lautner’s mother must have had friends like me. I hoped they warned her and that she prepared herself for the madness.
Growing up in Michigan, Taylor studied a number of martial arts forms from a very young age. Before he even reached his teens, he already had number one rankings, gold medals and world championships under his belt…black belt that is. Had he not been encouraged by others to try his hand at acting, we may very well have been following his career in another arena. The acting bug won out though and his family decided to permanently relocate to California to give him better opportunities. Their faith in his talent paid off.
It’s hard to believe that the little boy who started out with the cheeky grin (and the fin on his back) in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl grew up into one of the hottest stars on the planet. With the latest installment of the Twilight franchise about to explode over screens worldwide, women everywhere are working themselves into a frenzy over a certain teenage werewolf. Michael J. Fox has got nothing on this kid. He’s too sexy for his fur.
In New Moon, he reprises his role as Jacob Black, a shape-shifter/werewolf who befriends and falls in love with Bella Swan. While Jacob was somewhat of a secondary character in Twilight, here he’s a larger, more physical presence. His fan base (Go, Team Jacob!) is rabid and when it was rumored someone else might assume the role, they responded with outrage. For them, no one is better suited to play Jacob. I have to agree.
Taylor took his responsibility to the film and to his fans so seriously that he added 30 pounds of muscle for the more physically demanding role. Asked about his preparations during a television interview, he gamely flicked up his shirt and I was immediately thankful that I have always been too sanelazy to truly stalk someone. The boy – did I mention that he’s only 17? – has abs like a Spartan (except that none of his are painted on) and eyes that can cast spells. He is definitely one of the most talented, charming and handsome actors in Hollywood.
He is also “jailbait” and I really don’t appreciate being put in this situation…again. I haven’t had a crisis of conscience like this since underage wizards learned to fly.
Look for Taylor in New Moon opening in theaters nationwide on November 20th. You can also look for him on February 11th when he turns 18 (and you can stop feeling guilty for googling that clip of him taking off his shirt in the film’s trailer. Don’t act like I’m the only one!).

Hot off the presses, MTV.com debuts the new poster for the second in the Twilight series: Read more
In a post on her website, Twilight author Stephenie Meyer confirms that Taylor Lautner will reprise his role as Jacob in the hit vampire romance’s sequel, New Moon. As EW first reported last night, this news ends months of curiosity about whether Lautner would return.
READ THE NEWS BELOW:
January 7, 2009
Good news about New Moon from director Chris Weitz:
I’m very happy to announce that Taylor Lautner will be playing Jacob Black in New Moon and that he’s doing so with the enthusiastic support of Summit Entertainment, the producers, and Stephenie Meyer.
The characters in Stephenie’s books go through extraordinary changes of circumstance and also appearance; so it is not surprising that there has been speculation about whether the same actor would portray a character who changes in so many surprising ways throughout the series. But it was my first instinct that Taylor was, is, and should be Jacob, and that the books would be best served by the actor who is emotionally right for the part. I think that fans of Twilight the book and the movie will be surprised by the Jacob Black that Taylor will bring to the screen in New Moon; and I’m looking forward to working with him and the rest of the cast in realizing the film.
I’d just like to add that I was very much a part of this decision. My first priority was always what was best for New Moon—what was going to give us the best possible movie. I’m truly thrilled that Taylor was the one who proved to the director, to Summit, and to me that he is the best possible Jacob we could have. And I’m very much looking forward to seeing what he’s going to bring to Jacob’s character this year.
