Hal Brook Talks about Rob and Water for Elephants

Struggling to make ends meet in New York City during the 1950s, Hal Holbrook turned to the stage — performing impersonations of a number of famous historic figures to put food on the table for his wife and children. He eventually narrowed down his focus to one prolific author: Mark Twain.

Decades later, Mark Twain Tonight! is still drawing in hordes of people — and rave reviews. To stay relevant, the 86-year-old actor has been updating his material with new commentary from Twain’s works, to match the ever-changing sociopolitical climate.

And while Holbrook is constantly looking to the past to inform the future, the “Wall Street” actor still has some interesting run-ins with Hollywood up-and-comers. On the set of his upcoming movie, “Water for Elephants,” Holbrook worked alongside everyone’s favorite vampire — teenage heartthrob Robert Pattinson (of the “Twilight” series).

I was astonished when I met him, because I met him with a couple friends of mine and the minute I looked at him, I said to him, ‘My God, you look like me as a young man,’” Holbrook said. “Everyone who was with me said, ‘Yeah, he really does.’ ”
