Taylor Lautner almost missed Jacob role
Taylor Lautner auditioned for the role of Jacob Black in Twilight at the same time he auditioned for another role in the movie adaptation of the musical Fame. He was auditioning for Fame along with actress Keke Palmer.
Keke told an interviewer: "We were both up for roles in the movie, and we both didn't get parts. He wouldn't have been able to do Twilight if he did Fame, so I'm happy he lost out."
