Robert Pattinson’s Accent in The Devil All the Time is definitely a talking point

Rob’s accent in The Devil All the Time has created quite a debate – some loving it others claiming it to be “over the top”. Beth from At the Cool Table wrote a great treatise defending Rob’s accent, after all she “grew up in the 1980’s listening to a myriad of southern white preachers on Sunday nights blow through town and set up shop masquerading as revival services”. Below is an excerpt, but you can read the article by clicking on the link above:

Having heard many a Tennessee preacher boy wax ridiculous about a church potluck, I’m here to tell you, what it is, is perfect. 

It’s a perfect mix of runt of the litter Tennessee boy and sharp meanness. The very first word in this clip, “Friends,” is said in a soft, breathy petition that says he’s a gentle man and a gentleman. “Poor people” has the false quiver of emotion that is meant to display empathy. The type of men who chose this profession and chose to prey on their congregants are the same type of men who manipulate with every word, deed, gesture and chosen cadence. If it sounds put on, it’s because it’s put on.

For naysayers, all I can say is imagine a less attractive man sounding the same, saying the same, and you’ll get it. Pattinson’s Teagardin is despicable, and the shit that flies out of his mouth is pure southern gothic.
