These are awesome...AND ROBERT would NOT have beem hand picked by DAVID CRONENBRG if he had thought his acting was poor, but David saw something in Rob he could utilize...@dshawn4...Rob's acting in How To Be & Remember Me, was brilliant and won him awards, but if you are only going on Twilight, than you are close-minded, and have not read those novels that had Rob depict Edward perfectly, just like Water For Elephants!!! Bel Ami already has people talking about his amazing performance as a nasty cad. Rob is newer to acting, and anyone who knows him is aware of his humble, shy ways, but also of his halarious, carismatic charm, and intelligence...He is extremely well liked by all who have worked with him. The right director will do wonders, and Robert is more than willing to shed the Edward image. All good actors started with roles they were put down for too. They however had this special quality that allowed that right people/person to want to give them a chance, and than they broke through, and became respected. I did not think Johnny epp could act either, when he was in NightmareOnES or 21 Jump Street, neither did anyone going by those old reviews, but Tim Burton saw something, and presto...Though one thing Robert has off camera, that Johnny still lacks is personality...Rob is a diamond in the rough, and David Cronenburg loves finding these diamonds and polish them. The best thing to happen to Robert in American film is Cronenburg, otherwise Robert did wonderfully in his British roles where he especially did well, and had a more natural ability about him...He was more comportable...This is Rob's only handicap, he has no ego at all, and may have to aquire a little bit of one to succeed, he certainly is bright enough.
