Taylor Lautner to Stay On as Jacob in "New Moon"

By Susie Kopecky,
Taylor Lautner has been selected to stay on.

Fear not, Twilight fans: Taylor Lautner will be back for New Moon, the highly-anticipated sequel to 2008's Twilight.

It has been confirmed on Wednesday that Lautner was asked to return for the filming of New Moon. No word yet on how he will be asked or made to physically match the Jacob of the book.

There had been a question of whether or not Lautner would be invited back, as his character, Jacob, is supposed to morph into a larger, meatier character for New Moon. Alternate names had been bandied around, including Michael Capon, a young Los Angeles resident who some believed would be the next Jacob.

Capon's Facebook page had reportedly included messages and status updates indicating his interest in the role.
