Robert Pattinson Loses The Lead Role In Jeff Buckley Biopic! Oh No!

Mon, August 15, 2011 9:09pm EDT by 9 Comments

Rob Pattinson must be so sad! He really wanted to play Jeff Buckley and now he’s lost his chance. Poor Rob!

Robert Pattinson has not made it a secret that he longs to play famous musician Jeff Buckley on the big screen. Unfortunately for Rob, Penn Badgley scored the role in the movie Greetings from Tim Buckley and now actor Reeve Carney has secured the lead in the biopic film about Jeff.

Mary Guibert, Jeff’s mother and executive producer for the film said, “We are over the moon that Reeve has agreed to take on this challenging role. He’s been getting ready for this all his life. It certainly doesn’t hurt that he looks so much like Jeff.”

The movie’s director, Jake Scott, is also thrilled. “We are excited to have found in Reeve the perfect combination of musical prodigy, impish charm, innate intelligence and sensitivity to play Jeff.”

Reeve is relatively unknown in Hollywood, although he was cast as the lead in the Broadway production of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

Are you sad for Rob that he missed out on two opportunities to play Jeff Buckley? Or do you think he’s over it at this point?

I just paid $24,31 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic GF 1 Camera that we got for $34,26 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 42 inch LED TV to my boss for $678 which only cost me $68,18 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentSpace.com

Good! I love Rob and think he’s an amazing actor, but this movie would’ve stalled his career. He should do something main-stream! Just my opinion.

Only this site would write wrong information , robert pattinson did say a long while ago that he would love to play that part but what this site forgot to mention he also said he wouldn’t do it because he know that he couldn’t sing like Buckley , the tone of voice are different. Also he did talk to Buckley’s mother only the two of them knows what that conversation was about. So technically he was never up for the part it was a story invented mainly by internet bloggers.Boy you people believe anything written by this site …How Sad!!!

Rob has not been interested in this for awile now. Last time he showed real interest was well over a year ago and in his last interview when asked he kind of simply skirted the answer saying what a great musician Jeff was. The director said some time a go he was looking for someone who was not already a big known star and someone that was a musician first, but could also act. That took Rob and Franco out of it right there. I think Rob would be happy for Carney as Rob really admires Buckley. This is a little indie movie and I am sure Rob wont loose any sleep over it. By the way those of you trying to now connect Kristen and Carney grow up. He was joking around in that interview.

I love Robert Pattinson but I think Reeve Carney is perfect for this role, I just wish Robert could have beat Penn because I don’t understand the big deal about him.
