I love this man so much – Rob not the Movieline person of course.   He is just so humble and I love it.    Rob I would go see a movie with you in it even if you were just the parking warden believe me I would and I don’t need anyone to ask me to go.  Anyway S.T  VanAirsdale from Movieline interviewed Rob (like a million other people) and here’s the part I loved:

Speaking about your role in this film, your co-star Pierce Brosnan said, “[h]e’s courageous to find a piece like this, knowing that he has the Twilight franchise breathing down his throat, and you know it will be up to him to go out there and seek these films between these mega-movies he’s about to do.” How do you respond to that?
I don’t think it’s courageous. I think it’s more courageous to do something to try to compete with it. They’re so huge. Like, the idea of doing a massive film, [for] which everybody says, “This is going to make tons of money,” and the whole point of it is to be huge or a summer blockbuster or something like that? The idea of doing something like that between the Twilight films is terrifying because you put yourself out way more on the line. I mean, I keep wanting to do ensemble pieces where all the other parts are great, and you can get really great actors in so you don’t have to bear the whole burden of the movie. If I could do supporting roles in things, then I’d love to do that. But it’s difficult to get supporting roles because it would be really weird most of the time. “Well, there’s the guy from Twilight playing the parking warden,” or something. But I would love to do that.

One of my maiden problems that I’ve been trying to learn about is how to pace a performance to drive the film forward instead of just concentrating on character. I mean, I just want to concentrate on character all the time, and I don’t really know how pacing works. Yet. So I try to choose little random projects where I can completely relate to the story — so I don’t have to take any particular risks for it.”

Rob please let your next random project be Water For Elephants – I suspect that it is, but can we have confirmation please because Jacob is so you.  To read the rest of the interview which is just as good, click here.

    I agree – so humble, so beautiful.

    I’m with you Maria, now would be the best time for Rob to slip up and give us that W4E confirmation we’re waiting for.
