Robert Pattinson Cast as Edward Cullen

Summit Entertainment announced that Robert Pattinson, an actor from the UK, has been cast as Edward Cullen. So, after Alphie and I picked ourselves up off the floor in stunned amazement we got together some facts about Robert.  Mind you, some of these facts we already knew because we are Harry Potter fans.


Robert’s best known as Cedric Diggory from the Goblet of Fire which I’m sure almost everyone has seen.


Other key performances to see him in that are available to American audiences:


Vanity Fair, in a small but good part, catch it on DVD in the deleted scenes, or catch the YouTube version here


One of the better fansites for him is here.  


Robert has done several other projects, but they are not currently available on DVD that are compatible in USA players.

We should also add that Stephenie has some additional commentary on her MySpace page. Among other things Robert can do an American accent and he has read all (not just Twilight) but all of the books!
