Robert Pattinson surprises Connecticut students with video cameo

By Sean O’Connell Robert Pattinson has a bright future in film after the “Twilight” franchise fades into the sunset following “Breaking Dawn,” and by the looks of this new clip, the actor might want to try his hand at comedy.

Let’s set the stage. “Friday Night Lights” and “Battleship” director Peter Berg had agreed to film a video message for the students at his alma mater, Taft. Hoping to make a splash with the kids back in Connecticut – home of the boarding school – Berg wisely recruited a celebrity guest star for the clip: Pattinson.

“Taft has been causing problems for a while now,” Pattinson jokes, much to Berg’s delight.

The video shows a different side to Pattinson, a lighter mood he isn’t able to display in “Twilight” or side projects like “Little Ashes” and “Remember Me.”

According to E!, the Taft student body went nuts when Pattinson showed up in the clip. (You can view it here.)

“When the film was shown, it was deafening! Peter Berg has directed another blockbuster hit,” said Taft Headmaster Willy MacMullen. “I thought we were going to have to call in the medics — several of the girls looked as if they were about to have a heart attack!”

You mean another filmmaker beside Danny Boyle is making audience members pass out? Stop the presses.

Pattinson, meanwhile, will next appear in “Water for Elephants,” the romance “Bel Ami,” and a little film called “Breaking Dawn” … all in 2011. A busy year for a busy actor. And one with a hidden funny bone that I hope continues to shine.
