Win A 'Cosmopolis' Poster Signed By Robert Pattinson

UPDATE: We have a winner! Here's why @melonballs thinks Rob makes a perfect Eric Packer:

He makes a great Eric because he has a vulnerability that makes a an almost unlikable character seem lovable. He does a lot of acting with his eyes and was able to bring a lot of humanity to the intense and slightly robotic dialogue.

Congratulations Melissa! - and thanks to everyone else who participated in the contest - we love all your comments!

  3. He makes a perfect Eric Packer because he embodies the role. He and David understand the book and brought the best parts of it to the role. He brings Erics personality in the book to life well.

  6. His accent is spot on. The suit is worn well. When he felt he wasn’t going to be able to do Packers character justice, he professionally asked David for help. Furthermore based on the NY Times interview it is evident he committed to the role and truly understands the character.

  8. Rob makes a good Eric Packer because he is in every scene of the movie and with that much screen time you need someone with great magnetism like Rob. I cannot stop watching him and in this movie you won't have to.

  9. Robert makes a perfect Eric, he took on a role that other would consider unusual and he owned it. He's a fine actor who deserves all the success. Both him and david did a fine job at bringing such an amazin character to life! Well done rob!

  10. Rob makes a perfect Eric Packer because he knows how to harnest his energy onscreen. There's this quiet intensity to Robert's acting. It's captivating. Packer needs someone who can be both menacing and surprising, and not overtly so. Plus, Rob totally looks great in a suit!

  11. "I'm a world citizen with a New York set of balls." That's Eric Packer, that's Rob pattinson!

  12. Rob is able to transform himself into his characters so effortlessly it seems. He's amazing and talented and raw. He's still unsure of himself which makes him aim for perfection...Perfect Eric!

  13. Pattinison is perfect in role because no one else could play it. There are tons of older actors who could handle Eric Packer, but no one else in young hollywood personifies cool, calm, & unstoppable the way Rob does right now.

  14. Who else could look that good in a suit and pull of the Packer haircut?

  15. As David said last night, Rob was the only person who could play this part perfectly, from his mannerisms to his perfect "Packer" voice.

  16. Rob makes a perfect Eric because he puts all his heart and energy into the role and really makes the character seem so real that the audience could feel as though his character could be living next door. Rob commands the screen and always does phenomenal work, all while looking amazing!

  17. Rob can play someone scares you, who turns you on, and who you can feel for. Eric needs an actor like that and Rob did all of those things and more.

  19. Rob makes a perfect Eric Packer b/c he's courageous, talented, and a beautiful actor. He embodies it and makes the role his own. He has a flawless NY accent, looks great in Gucci and shades. He always puts everything he has in his roles. All of this makes a perfect Eric Packer and a perfect actor.

  21. There is no one else who could have done it better than Rob, just look at him his great. He brought Eric Packer to life with his great acting, personality, and charm. Rob has everything for the role. He nailed it :)

  24. Rob is perfect as Eric Packer because he is handsome, charming, successful, and mysterious. And, of course, he looks fantastic in a suit!

  25. Rob is the perfect Eric because he said he heard the voice right away the first time he read the script. It's like Eric chose him!

  26. Rob makes a perfect Eric Packer because he is the right age, the right build, the right hair, he loved the dialog of the script so he said the lines with the right tone for a man on the verge of imploding, and he obviously got along great with David.

  27. Rob is perfect Eric Packer because he has the right look and talent to play a "Master of the Universe." He also looks amazing in a Gucci suit. :)

  28. Robert makes a great Eric Packer because he is nothing like him. He can understand his actions, of course, but not the thoughts behind them. Robert is channeling a character that he'll probably never relate to completely... but that he strives to, anyway. It's unsettling and raw, and gloriously perfect.

  29. Rob makes the perfect Eric Packer because of his ability to get inside the mind of such a complex character and portray him with subtleness and ease. It also doesn't hurt that he looks awesome in a suit.

  30. Rob makes the perfect Eric Packer because he embodies the distinct and sometimes difficult characteristics of the billionaire. Packer is odd and hard to keep up with. Rob is similar in which he thinks outside himself and thinks in ways that ordinary people usually don't.

  31. Rob makes the perfect Eric Packer because he can really get into his character and be able to to bring the book to the movie screen. David and Rob are the best duo trying to get everyone to see this amazing film. im so proud of them.

  32. There are so many similarities with the two; their views on money seem to be similarly negative. The more you have, the more you give up some part of yourself/privacy. Both are at high levels of society, and both seem to rather go back in time. Rob is a transparent actor, and brings versatility to every role.

  33. Eric Packer was a character embodied on a page - Robert Pattinson made that character come to life with his perfect interpretation of DeLillo's written word.

  34. Rob makes a great Eric Packer because he is unexpected. Movie goers don’t expect Rob to play a role as in depth and different as this one. This unexpectedness adds an element of surprise that when partnered with his phenomenal acting, and ability to trust Cronenberg’s direction, creates magic!

  35. He makes a great Eric because he has a vulnerability that makes a an almost unlikable character seem lovable. He does a lot of acting with his eyes and was able to bring a lot of humanity to the intense and slightly robotic dialogue.

  36. Rob can stretch his acting chops by delving into the dark side. I have seen only trailers and am impressed at his ease of getting lost in this character. Also notice Rob's entire movement and essence is Eric on screen. It is a very dimensional portrayl. Subtle when needs to be and full force when that is needed.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Rob made a great Eric Packer because he didn't have a clue who Eric was. He went into the project basically flying blind and ended up coming out soaring with a great performance as the Eric Packer. Rob has talent and skill that no one will attempt to ever destroy

  38. Rob makes such a perfect Eric Packer because both are hard to figure out and are able to attract. Rob is a guy who is not afraid to take on a challenge, and was able to prove that he is capable of playing this smart yet odd character.

  39. Robert made the perfect Eric Packer because of how he portrayed the character to be more than just a snooty billionaire. From his small changes in facial expression to the way he acted you could tell Eric was more than that, you could tell this man was clearly losing it over the span of a day. He approached Cosmopolis with dedication and thought. No one could have played a better Eric, I am so happy and proud of him. Cosmopolis is clearly only the beginning for him.

  44. Robert Pattinson makes the perfect Eric Packer, not because the two have a lot in common, but because Rob is a tremendous actor who can step into a role and completely own it. While both Rob and Eric are ambitious, charismatic, driven and hopeful, the biggest difference between the two is that Rob is full of heart. One might think it would be hard for such a genuinely nice person to transform into Eric, but Rob does it flawlessly. And sexily in that dapper Gucci suit. ;) This role proves that Robert is a powerful and commanding actor. As Cronenberg said, he's the man we want!
