ARTICLE: Guy Pearce compliments Robert Pattinson in The Rover – “He is going to be fantastic”

The Daily Telegraph (AU) had a chance to sit down with Guy Pearce to talk about working with Robert Pattinson in The Rover. He had nothing but great things to say:


Robert Pattinson is the real deal, according to Guy Pearce, his co-star in The Rover. The two actors have just spent seven weeks together in the South Australian Outback, filming director David Michod’s hotly-anticipated follow-up to Animal Kingdom, with Pearce waxing lyrical about his co-stars ‘‘beautiful face”.

”The best thing about Rob is that he is a really great actor,” says Pearce. ‘‘Watching the rushes back, you go: ‘OK, he is just going to be fantastic’.”

The Twilight star plays white trailer trash from the southern states of America in the futuristic western, set in an apocalyptic near future where society has broken down in the wake of a severe financial crisis.

”He plays (the character) slightly backward, emotionally useless and really vulnerable,” says Pearce. ”He’s got this beautiful face so you are completely entranced by that face no matter how ugly he makes himself or how wounded he is, or how manky his haircut.”

Can’t wait to see this! Here’s hoping some more teases are on the way. 🙂
