We have to admit - he looks the part better than any of the other contenders!
Robert Pattinson is apparently ready to showcase his vocal stylingz in a much bigger way than ever before - as he's approached producers of a potential Jeff Buckley biopic in hopes to secure the role of the late folk singer!
Producer Michelle Sy confirms:
"I've met actors who are keen on the part and Robert was one…The actor must be able to play music and sing, or at least make it believable he can do that."
And despite competition from James Franco and James Marsden for the role, even Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert, thinks our sparkly vamp is the perfect potential to play her son!
"Robert is a fine young actor. I'm flattered he's been linked to the project. When the times comes we'll give everybody an opportunity to be seen and heard."
He certainly has some tough competition, but this part actually does seem right up his alley!
We just hope that whomever ends up winning the part can do Buckley justice!
What do U think?? Should RPatz play Jeff Buckley??
