It does make you think. Pattinson has grown to fame and become a household name because of the “Twilight” movies and his role as sultry vampire Edward Cullen. But will he continue to get good roles that don’t appeal to the teen/tween crowd?
His first major role, as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter movies, appealed to kids and adults of all ages. Then came, at about the same time, “Twilight” and “Little Ashes,” an R-rated movie in which he played artist Salvador Dali.
Next up is “New Moon,” in which he again plays vampire Edward Cullen, but he’s also close to signing for “Memoirs,” a dramatic movie about family tragedy.
Let’s face it. Playing Edward Cullen made Pattinson a teen sensation, but did it make him a brilliant actor? Will he be able to play these grown-up roles and become a great actor? Or is he already a great actor?
