There was no Robert Pattinson, THE ACTOR, before Twilight, right? Oh wait, we all know he had that tiny recurring role as Cedric in Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix. But nothing else, right? Wrong. Rob had a pretty prolific filmography before he became the beloved Edward Cullen. Before he scored his breakout role of America's favorite vampire, Rob played a range of characters with a range of hairstyles. And how did it take me this long to find out Rob has a man on man love scene on his resume?!!
I have to warn you, though, these movie promo pics may do a number on your monster crush on Robert Pattinson. I mean, no matter what Rob does, he's pretty, but hair and wardrobe can really mess with this man's HOT factor. In a big way. So expect that you might feel a little confused, at the very least, about your feelings for Robert Pattinson after tromping through his eccentric movie past.
Have you seen any of these more obscure Robert Pattinson films? If not, do you want to now?
Okay, let's go way back to a TV movie called Dark Kingdom: The Dragon King or Curse of the Ring (take your pick, I guess), originally titled Ring of the Nibelungs (I'm not kidding). In this film, Rob sported a lovely mullet and played a character named Giselher. It's based on Norse mythology and a German poem about a dragon slayer. Giselher has a pet hawk, is brother to one King Gunther, and sister to Kriemhild, and he has a girlfriend named Lena. That's all I got.
