‘New Moon’ Smackdown: Taylor v. Robert

Celebuzz | February 26, 2009 - 3:30 pm

Look out Robert Pattinson, there’s a sexy werewolf in town.

Twilight’s much anticipated sequel New Moon will allow Taylor Lautner’s hottie werewolf character Jacob to step up and woo Bella leading-man style—and he might not let her, or the swooning fans, go.

“I think Rob should watch out,” Rachelle Lefevre, who plays Victoria, tells Life & Style magazine. “(Taylor) will make sure his relationship with her is just as intense and has just as much chemistry as Rob’s.”

Indeed, Pattinson is quoted in the magazine piece downing Stella beer and lamenting, “I’ve got two scenes.”  

Lautner is ready to get hairy in the big-time role, knowing that once you go wolf, you cannot get enough. He tells the mag, “I wanted to get Twlight over with, let Edward (Pattinson) have his time with Bella and get moving with New Moon.”

“It’s about time Jacob got in there.”

Rrrrrrrr. Those claws are sharp.
