Pattinson Versus the Press

What might 2011 hold for the actor? He's reportedly in the running for a major role opposite Oscar winners Sean Penn and Reese Witherspoon.

According to industry newsletter Variety, Pattinson might star in Water for Elephants, a big screen adaption of Sara Gruen's best-selling book.

The story is set during the Great Depression. It focuses on a Cornell University student who ditches school behind after his parents are killed, and joins up with the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

Might Pattinson actually play this key character, who works as vet for the circus? That's the rumor.

As for where you can find Robert in the immediate future: turn on your TV tonight. He's making an appearance on the celebrity-themed Hope for Haiti telethon.

A wonderful career move depending on who they cast as the elephant and the dog. This film could be a classic in the tradition of Grapes of Wrath if done well.
