Robert Pattinson would appear in a new 'Star Wars' film 'in a heartbeat'
Well, he will be looking for a new film franchise soon.
Robert Pattinson has made a name for himself as the brooding vampire in the "Twilight" series which is just about to conclude on the big screen. With rumors about the upcoming new "Star Wars" trilogy now arriving like clockwork every day, even Pattinson has been drawn into the conversation.
When asked by the Washington Post if he would accept a hypothetical offer to appear in the recently announced "Episode VII," Pattinson responded, "In 'Star Wars?' Oh, absolutely. In a heartbeat." Here we'll take the time to remind you that this was just a casual comment in an interview and that there are no indications that the "Cosmopolis" actor is being considered for the new trilogy.
When jokingly asked if he would consider playing a certain long-eared marble-mouthed simpleton, Pattinson added, "I actually kind of like Jar-Jar. I don’t understand what the big deal is about Jar-Jar."
"Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Par II" is now in theaters.
