David Cronenberg admits he initially pursued Rob for the lead role but got more than he bargained for — is he being too honest or too mean?
David, 68, said Rob’s celebrity made the 25-year-old a liability on set, the CBC reports.
“Actually the fame was a detriment,” he said. “I mean, it’s good for financing – but it’s not necessarily good when you’re on the street and there are a lot of Twi-hards around. But I think people will be really surprised, I mean, I think he’s a terrific actor and that’s why I went after him.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers — would you hire Rob for YOUR film?
