Thread: Robert Pattinson Takes Bilbo Role

Bottom of Page    Message Board > The Hobbit (Movie) > Robert Pattinson Takes Bilbo Role   
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."

:lol: Hey, didn't I say something about him being Legolas already? :mrgreen:
He's multi-talented <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> . 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."

He could do an elf and a hobbit! Talk about imagination. This is exciting news.
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! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />
Would thid be the april the 1st edition by any chance?
We can only hope <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> .

Of course not!

(OTOH, never trust anything anyone tells you on 1 April. :P )
A joke! A rotten old trick! I feel sooooo deflated! Why didn't someone warn me? <img src='/images/smileys/sad.gif' border='0' alt='Sad Smilie' /> <img src='/images/smileys/sad.gif' border='0' alt='Sad Smilie' /> And there I was getting my hopes up!
I think there's a permanent warning for every April 1. I'm not one to talk, though, since I fell for TORn's front-page announcement that The Hobbit had been greenlit. :oops: :lol:
At least that sounds more believable :lol: .

I got really excited and almost made a thread in this forum, but then I read the attached discussion thread on TORn and noticed that the the post was tagged as part of the "Fool" category. :lol:
I DESPISE Robert Pattinson. I used to love Twilight and all of that crap, but now i see it for the crap it really is. THNK THE GOOD LORD IT WAS A JOKE!!!!! haha! :lol: :mrgreen:
Well, ever since I found found out you [i:17vbgvif]despise[/i:17vbgvif] this Pattison chap, Tin, (whoever he is), I've absolutely [i:17vbgvif]despised [/i:17vbgvif]him too. Looks more like a vampire than a hobbit-cum-elf to me! :x A real[i:17vbgvif] imposter [/i:17vbgvif]look about him - with the emphasis on the [i:17vbgvif]imp[/i:17vbgvif] part!
[quote="Tinuviel":22q19x93]I used to love Twilight and all of that crap, but now i see it for the crap it really is.[/quote:22q19x93]

To be fair to Pattinson, he [url=]isn't a fan of Twilight either[/url:22q19x93] (found that via Google; the original eludes me). Apparently he [i:22q19x93]is[/i:22q19x93] a fan of money, though. :lol:
Actually Pattinson was pretty good as Cedric in HP:GoF. It's Edward Cullen that draws all the backlash (that and the hordes of shrieking Tween Twilight/Cullen Fan-Girls :P ). But he is DEFINITELY NOT Bilbo. Though hopefully the rumour will go viral since I posted it at several forums on April Fools day :lol: .

Yep, I pray hes stays as far away from any of this as possible!!!!!! We don't want him to detract from the other characters!
Part of me would be amused to see Pattinson go three-for-three on the biggest fantasy franchises of the decade. :P

But 99% of me just goes into Darth Vader mode and yells "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
I could see him as an Elf I suppose :idea: .

Well, if he was an elf-changeling, and his other form, a hobbit...? 8-) Imagine the psychological adventures Bilbo could go on! Very modern, [i:21ks7l3x]very[/i:21ks7l3x]! 8-) We could even call Bilbo, [i:21ks7l3x]Bilbolas[/i:21ks7l3x]! Deliightful! :mrgreen: And imagine the fangirls, whether Pattinson or Bloom! 8-)
Bilbolas!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

robert pattinson as bilbo bagins... <img src='/images/smileys/smile.gif' border='0' alt='Smile Smilie' /> rob as bilbo... <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> ROBERT AS BILBO???? :lol:
ok guys... it was a nice joke...oh... :P come on... are you serious ??? :!: :!: :!:
I prefer Tobby Maguire...!!!!
April Fools :mrgreen: .

So you played a big trick on us, GB! :oops: That's so cruel! I'd gone and got my hopes up... :cry: Oh well, back to bagging the movies.... :x
Eck! <img src='/images/smileys/vevil.gif' border='0' alt='Very Evil Smilie' /> :cry: :oops:
Robert Pattinson should stay as far away from this as possible! He'd soil it with his lack of self confidence and hygene :ugeek:
I mean seriously! How can an elf be played by a guy who showers every 6 weeks!?!?
and I wouldn't want people to go c the hobbit b/c he's in it! And yes, I know this was all a joke, but i get the chills just thinking that he was stupid enough to even ascend to pretending he was good enough of an actor to even play one of the roles!!!!

If you haven't noticed, I REALLY LOATHE Robert Pattinson, as well as anyone who's so wrapped up in TWilight. It's not healthy. I would know! HAHA!
[quote="Tinuviel":1a7kyf5j]If you haven't noticed, I REALLY LOATHE Robert Pattinson, as well as anyone who's so wrapped up in TWilight.[/quote:1a7kyf5j]

Yeah ... it's pretty obvious. :P
Oh Tin, you musn't hold back... say what you really think! :lol:
Actually Tinuviel, Pattinson didn't have anything to do with it. I made it all up.

In that event Tin, train your guns on GB.... ATTACK! (Sorry, GB, but you do seem to deserve it! :twisted: )
What??? :o ...You've never heard of April Fool's Day? :?

I thought Ozzies had a sense of humour <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> .


PS: I don't remember all this outrage when Ady posted Mr Bean as Bilbo last April Fool's Day :roll: .
This Australian might find Tinuviel ripping Gandalf's Beard to bits amusing.... :? We're in to physical humour! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />
I guess Pattinson just has more anti-fans, GB. :?
Yes indeed, that's why i posted it <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> .

Mission accomplished, then. :mrgreen:
:oops: :oops: :oops:
Whoops! my apologees. I thought RP was saying that as an april fools joke, not you GB.
Tho, I don't find that joke particularly funny, tho i know some girls who would swoon... i pray those people will wake up someday :? :x
Well I got a good laugh from Narniawebbers :mrgreen: . And I was surprised that some people at the Leaky Cauldron didn't think it was such an awful idea :? . But for the record, I DO think it would be an awful idea.
