Could Robert Pattinson be switching it up a bit – going from playing the heartthrob in movies to becoming to next big action star? Seems that way, as his ‘people’ are busy trying line up at least one top notch action flick for him to take on this year.
With all the rumors (and bogus ones at that) about Robert Pattinson possibly becoming the next James Bond or even starring in the upcoming fourth Spider-Man film, it seems there is definite interest within the Hollywood community to see Robert Pattinson take an action role.
While seeing Pattinson in the role of Bond? James Bond, 007, you know who I mean, would be interesting and quite the jump for his career, don’t look for it to happen anytime soon. During the London premiere of his movie “Remember Me,” Pattinson revealed that he’d entertain the role of James Bond if offered but also admitted that he isn’t very athletic and is “not good at running.” He also reminded the everybody that if the role of James Bond was offered, it wouldn’t be anytime soon saying, “Maybe in a few years.” With predecessors like Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery, and Daniel Craig, Pattinson would be a much younger James Bond but maybe they can revamp the movies like they are doing with the “Spiderman” movies. Speaking of which – As for the rumor that’s been going around that he could replace Tobey Maguire donning the Spidey costume in the reboot, Pattinson says it’s totally not true, although it’s the kind of thing he’d love to do because he likes the idea of “doing an action movie where you can never see your face, cause you don’t have to go to the gym and you don’t have to do any of your stunts and stuff.” However, don’t worry about Pattinsons’ career – his movie “Remember Me” was just released and is receiving high praises from fans despite the critics harsh reviews, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” is out in June, and he is currently filming “Bel Ami.” He is considered as hot property in Hollywood these days, so the Bond franchise would be lucky to have him!
Meanwhile, the other lesser talked about Cullen brother, Jackson Rathbone will be at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards tomorrow night with his co-star Nicola Peltz in support of their upcoming film “The Last Airbender.” Above is a promo spot for the awards show, featuring Jackson and Nicola.
