Taylor Lautner shirtless in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse helps to advance the film's plot in a number of ways: a) you can see why Kristen Stewart's Bella may wonder if a werewolf might be more enticing than a vampire b) it shows that Lautner's Jacob represents earthiness and sexual desire while Robert Pattinson's thin, white-faced Edward represent etherealness and spiritual love c) it shows that Jacob may be young but he's a man. In other words, you can lust after him without feeling guilty.

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner fans will be able to watch the final version of the Twilight Saga: Eclipse trailer on Friday, April 23. On Oprah.
That won't be a problem for fans of Oprah Winfrey's show, but for those of us who never watch it, or can only manage to watch 30 seconds at a time every other year… Ouch!
Why not just launch the Eclipse trailer on the film's website? Or on YouTube? Or The Jon Stewart Show? Stephen Colbert could even show up to do a mock interview with one of the cgi werewolves.
But no. Oprah it will be. Thank vampires for DVRs.
The announcement was made via Twitter by the official Twilight Twitpage. After watching the final preview of Eclipse on Oprah, Twilight fans have been invited to “visit our social networks … to chat live with surprise guests from the cast! More details to come…”
I don't know what's this deal between Oprah and Twilight. Last November she got Stephenie Meyer to talk about the series. And as reported on MTV.com, last week Oprah asked its viewers: “Are you or your kids obsessed with the Twilight series?… Tell us how the Twilight series has inspired you or your family!"
For the time being, it's unclear who will show up on Oprah. But the woman seems to be so powerful she may well make the Icelandic volcanic ash dissipate just so David Slade (currently in England as per his last tweet) and Robert Pattinson (in London or Budapest or somewhere in Europe) will come pay their respects on her show.
