Robert Pattinson will be playing the part of Edward Cullen in the highly anticipated movie version of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series.
Pattinson was the guy who played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He's British, but can speak perfectly with an American accent, and he has apparently read all the books in the Twilight series.
He wasn't how I pictured Edward in the book, but, after looking after thinking about it, I think he could probably play Edward. He at least looks good enough.
"Erik Feig, Summit Entertainment’s President of Production, stated, “It's always a challenge to find the right actor for a part that has lived so vividly in the imaginations of readers but we took the responsibility seriously and are confident, with Rob Pattinson, that we have found the perfect Edward for our Bella in TWILIGHT."
The actress Kristen Stewart will be playing Bella.
