NYPOST LIKES WE GOT THE BEAT’S MICHAEL COPON.
NEW YORK POST POPWRAP: “Michael Copon…Ben Barnes …I like Michael for this because he resembles Taylor and I didn’t particularly think Ben was all that great as Prince Caspian. His accent bothered me and I didn’t believe him as anything but a Pantene Pro-V spokeperson.”
NYPOST LIKES MICHAEL
We know firsthand that Michael Copon is a great actor and very dedicated to his craft. SO WE LIKE MICHAEL TOO!!
Should Michael Copon play Jacob in the Bella/Edward love triangle?
Extra Poll: Should Michael Copon play Jacob?
I love that our lead actor is all over the internet today on literally every entertainment website. If Michael Copon gets this role in “New Moon,” the sequel to “Twilight,” that would be huge for “We Got the Beat.” When you cast a film, you cast it based on talent, looks, personality, work ethic, and a general feeling you have about the person. You hope you are casting people that other directors and producers want to cast. You hope they get cast in big projects. You hope they become house hold names. It’s been a few exciting weeks for our cast. The trailer for “Friday the 13th” came out. It’s the remake by Michael Bay and will be out in February. Ryan Hansen from “We Got the Beat” plays a big role in the film and is in the trailer. Rachel Specter (Pamela from our movie) recently shot “My One and Only” starring Kevin Bacon and Renee Zellweger. Rachel apparently plays Kevin Bacon’s character’s mistress. Ryan Pinkston (Greg in “We Got the Beat”) just guest starred in the new “Hannah Montana” episode, where he went on a date with Miley Cyrus’ character. Laura Breckenridge’s big news is that she’s been cast as the new hot, young teacher on “Gossip Girl.” Laura plays Samantha Hughes in our film. And, of course, the internet is buzzing about whether Michael Copon is going to get the role of Jacob Black in “New Moon,” or not. I for one think it’s a no brainer. Of course he should get it. He’s older than Taylor. He’s taller. He’s hotter. He’s more love interest leading man type. But…then again, I guess I’m just a little biased. Jon and I have always loved the casting process. When we hired Mary Vernieu to cast our film (Scary Movie, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Cruel Intentions), we knew that she was known for breaking young talent. We trusted her on that. The funny thing is that Hillary Cohen, our 1st A.D., is the person who actually found Copon before we ever hired Mary. Mary confirmed that Hillary was right on regarding Michael being perfect for the role of Brad Roberts. Now let’s hope the director of “New Moon” thinks he’s perfect for Jacob Black.
