Before Twilight: Robert had the honor to have a key role in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Cedric Diggory. In what might be the weakest of the Potters, Bob Patty was actually the bright spot in the film.
After Twilight: Much like Stewart, Pattinson seems determined to play similar characters that are reserved and pouty. I was disappointed he chose to do REMEMBER ME and figured he would have chosen a role that could show off his acting chops and not something that cloned his Edward character.
Prediction: Pattinson’s biggest obstacle to making it as an A-list actor is his looks. I know that sounds strange, but the guy looks like a porcelain doll and I don’t think he’ll be playing any action heroes any time soon. That leaves serious dramas and love stories, which really limits what he can do. However, I can see him taking over the romantic comedy genre from Hugh Grant in a few years. Also, pre-teen girls are a finicky bunch and heartthrobs don’t tend to last very long. I give him a 40% chance of being relevant 5 years after BREAKING DAWN.
