Paul tells refers to Rob as “that Robert Pattinson guy” and describes the storyline as “sinister”

Robert Pattinson‘s Cosmopolis co-star Paul Giamatti couldn’t see anybody else playing Rob’s role in the upcoming flick. “He’s very good for the part,” Paul told exclusively at the Win Win New York special screening hosted by Nixon and GQ. “He’s great! Absolutely love the guy!”

Paul’s character is one of two men stalking Rob’s character, Eric Packer, after Eric loses a lot of his clients’ money by betting against the yen.

“It’s based on a novel. It’s mostly about that Robert Pattinson guy — he’s a very wealthy banker. It’s about a day in his life basically,” explains Paul. “But it’s a very strange and sinister story.”
