One Hollywood insider reveals that Rob will always be remembered as Edward from ‘Twilight’ — do YOU agree? Read on for more details!
There’s no doubt Robert Pattinson is a talented actor. However, Cosmopolis director David Cronenberg admits that it can be a gamble when casting an actor like Rob because he’ll always be remembered as that guy from Twilight!
When asked by About.com if he was nervous casting Rob, he simply replied: “You want to forget his movies and my movies because we’re creating this completely new thing and you don’t know what audience you’re going to get. “
The acclaimed director went on to say it’s just important to focus on the project you’re working on in the moment.
“You can anticipate it, you can think about it, but really you don’t know. So ultimately when you’re making the movie you’re saying, ‘Okay, I’m here with these actors. They’re wonderful actors, I cast them because they’re terrific and they will bring great stuff to the script,’ and then at that point you’re just making a movie and you’re not thinking about any other movie,” he said.
Hmm! Now with the Twilight franchise nearing an end, Rob, 26, is starting a new chapter in his career. But do you think the role that turned him famous will ultimately hurt him down the road?
