While his “Twilight Saga” cast-mates are busy staging paparazzi photos (yea, I am talking to you Kellen Lutz!), Robert Pattinson is busy booking more acting jobs.
Aside from his roles in the upcoming ‘Water for Elephants’ and ‘Bel Ami,’ Pattinson is now slated to take on the lead role of Eric Packer in the film adaptation of Don DeLillo’s novel, ‘Cosmopolis.’
“[Pattinson]will play Eric Packer. A financial wunderkind, Packer risks his entire fortune to bet against the yen on a tumultuous day. His deed puts him in the crosshairs for assassination in a drama that is a study of capitalism in a slightly futuristic metropolis. Most of the scenes in the book take place in the limousine that transports Packer from place to place. Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti are also reportedly doing the film, but those same reports had Colin Farrell poised to take the lead role.”
Unlike other young actors who seem to take any role offered to them (now I am still talking to you Kellen Lutz!), Pattinson has been quite selective with his roles, choosing to star alongside Oscar winners such as Reese Witherspoon, Christoph Waltz, and now Marion Cotillard.
