People get so wrapped up with Robert Pattinson being such a seksi, sparkly vampire that they forget one other factor: that he is an effing professional!
The Twilight actor was recently cast as a military interrogator in the upcoming film Mission: Blacklist, and according to Eric Maddox, the author of the novel on which the film is adapted and also the basis of the main character, he had no qualms whatsoever about being played on the silver screen by Edward Cullen…after the pair spent 14 hours together discussing the project!
“For me, it was a no-brainer. I said absolutely! Whatever you did to get that guy to be a part of this movie, I think it’s wonderful and I fully support it. We’re talking about a guy who is super famous and really popular. We met for 14 hours, and he focused exclusively on the project, and wanted to get down to the nitty gritty of the project. His entire focus was on the project. It wasn’t about him or his needs, and from that, I realized that this is a guy who is dedicated to his work and wanted to put in the hours. That’s what made me certain that they have built the right team for this.”
Wow! That is some serious commitment!
But honestly, we're thrilled that Rob is taking the project so seriously, and clearly is willing to put in the commitment to ensure that his performance is as accurate and honest as possible!
We're sure you'll make Eric and everyone else involved in the real-life capture of Sadam Hussein very proud, boy!
