Bel Ami: What does this mean for Robert Pattinson’s career?

In a short article posted over at BBC Movie Blog, writer James King looks into what Bel Ami could mean to Robert Pattinson.

Here is an excerpt:

It’s certainly a good move for him to make. I remember reading the book of Bel Ami in my French classes at school and Rob’s character, the fame hungry Georges Dulroy, is a million miles away from icy Edward Cullen. This is the story of a social climber, a Parisian nobody who works his way up the financial ladder by being the arm-candy of frustrated housewives. It’s a great role.

And, of course, it’s a role that he needs to be a success to get away from that relentless curse of the franchise star – type-casting. As Zac Efron attempts the same thing – turning down the teen-tasticFootloose in favour of moody dramaCharlie St Cloud – both guys face a battle with the media over whether they can be seen outside of their blockbuster bubble. Both, I reckon, have the talent to pull it off.

More importantly, they’ve also got the looks. WhilstStar Wars leading man Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) struggled to find other hit movies it was his decidedly sexier co-star Harrison Ford that hit the big time. Ditto Eilijah Wood and Viggo Mortensen fromLord Of The Rings. The jury’s still out on exactly who will break out of the shadow ofHarry Potter although maybe R Pattz, as the former Cedric Diggory, has already claimed that prize. With upcoming movies co-starring Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz (Unbound
Captives) and Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz (
Water For Elephants) he’s certainly got the cream of Hollywood on his side, with those projects reeking of awards potential.
