Bryan Reesman had the chance to interview Michael Sheen, and shared with us his write-up, where Michael mentions Rob:
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is upon us. You have worked with Robert Pattinson in New Moon. What is he like, and do you see him being able to break free of the role of Edward?Check out the rest of the interview for more on what Michael had to say about Rob, including how it was to work with him in New Moon, and much more!
I’m sure he’s not going to have any trouble himself personally, it’s whether the audience will accept him as something else.
