Robert Pattinson Takes Bilbo Role

Post#1 » Thu Apr 01, 2010 3:31 pm

In the inestimable newspaper The Sun, Robert Pattinson has confirmed he will be taking the role of Bilbo Baggins early this morning.

"It's a brilliant role for me." He is quoted as saying, "I can bring the Gothic charisma of Edward Cullen to bear on this part. My ability to perfectly capture Cullen's sullen stalker make me a natural to play a midget sneak thief."

He's multi-talented ;) . A modern-day Peter Sellers. The article further quotes him as saying: "Bloom is tired of the shrieking fan-girls, but I can't get enough of them. So I will also be playing Legolas."

This just in: the Zac Efron will be playing Thorin, and the Jonas Brothers will be Dori, Nori, and Ori. They'll also be recording the soundtrack for The Hobbit(s).

My happiness has no bounds! At least, the film makers are moving toward a lighter interpretation! :D
