Rob will take a break from playing Edward Cullen to star in Remember Me, a new romantic flick where he plays the leading love interest - a part we all know he's perfect for! No one has been named as his costar yet, but J-14 will keep you updated when we find out who the lucky lady is.
And don't worry that Rob won't have time for Eclipse, the actor will definitely return as our favorite vampire! He'll just have a busy schedule for the rest of the year: New Moon will wrap up in Italy in May, then Rob will come to New York to film Remember Me, and in August he'll be back working on the third Twilight movie!
This weekend, J-14 saw a screening of Rob's indie flick How to Be at the Tribeca Film Festival and loved him as a moody musician. When asked why he cast Rob in the role, director Oliver Irving joked that he was just, "sooo dreamy," and then admitted that Rob was the best who auditioned because of his acting and musical abilities. In May, Rob will also be portraying artist Salvador Dali in Little Ashes, another dramatic role totally different than his character Edward.
Are you guys excited to see Rob in a flick that's not fantasy? Or will he always be Edward (or Cedric!) to you?
