"Mission Keep Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black"

To Whom It May Concern:
It has been brought to my attention, that Summit Entertainment and/or those responsible in casting the film New Moon, are considering others for the part of Jacob black instead of keeping Taylor Lautner in that role. That, in my opinion, and the opinion of MANY, MANY others, is absolutely absurd, and we do not take the news well.
As, by now, I am sure you are well aware, the beautifully written Twilight Series, has a very loyal following and fan base, so, those loyalties definitely carry over for the actors that we have now, thanks to the Twilight film, come to associate with our favorite characters that we all fell in love with, courtesy of the brilliant Stephenie Meyer. So, changing the cast up now would not only be unfair to those that are going to be replaced, but also an insult to the fans, and it could possibly ruin the whole entrancing effect that the movies could have had. We won't be able to be as immersed in the fantasy world on screen, as we are in the books, and that would be a huge mistake.
More importantly, however, Taylor Lautner has said in several interviews how much he enjoys this part, has cited having read the series (which to us hardcore "Twilighters" means the world), and has reportedly been working extremely hard in the gym to be what they at Summit need him to be. That saddens me. Wrap your mind around this for a moment will you? How would you like to be given a job, one that you love dearly, one that you did well at, everyone agreed you were the best for, one that you worked extremely hard to keep, but then, you were told "Oh I'm sorry, you just don't have the right LOOK for this position", and suddenly, you didn't have that job anymore. Doesn't seem fair does it?
Now, before you go thinking, "Life isn't fair", consider this, the only reason that many things in life are deemed acceptable, is because nobody wants to stand up for what they believe in anymore.
Well, I am not some kid that just thinks "Taylor is cute keep him" (although THOSE are important people to listen to as well), I am a 29 year old, mother, who happens to believe in Taylor Lautner, in his abilities,and in his right to keep this part, that most of the world has now come to know him as.
He is quite an amazing actor in general, but especially for someone his age, he will only grow in experience, and skill as he matures.
Re-casting Jacob Black now could definitely be the breaking point of New Moon. I have started a petition on behalf of Taylor Lautner, personally, and in less than 30 hours I have received an unbelievable amount of feedback, and several signatures from people who feel exactly as I do. People of all different ages, from all walks of life, from the US to Russia and Germany. I will do what it takes to be heard. If that means emails and letters every day to Summit Entertainment, and every magazine or website that I can find that promotes the movie, then that's what I'll do.
I believe in Stepehenie Meyers' vision, I believe in the Twilight Series, I believe in the cast of the movies for the series, every one of them, and I believe in Taylor Lautner. Just as a side note, I am definitely, unquestionably Team Edward, but I will stand up for Team Lautner on this one.
A fuming loyal Twilight fan, and a once Summit fan, now on the fence,
