Robert Pattinson passed over for Jeff Buckley role
HollywoodNews.com: Although Robert Pattinson was interested in a Jeff Buckley role, it seems that he isn’t wanted by everyone.
Pattinson had previously expressed interest in playing Jeff Buckley in the film ‘Greetings From Tim Buckley,’ but ‘Gossip Girl’ star Penn Badgley has snagged the role, states E! News. James Franco, Jared Leto and James Marsden were also rumored to be interested in the role.
However, Badgley will not take the role for granted as he commented on just how excited he is for this part: “To play a man who was singularly gifted as an artist, greatly misunderstood and mythologized as a human being…It’s something very special and sacred. I’m going to give all I can to this project.”
Do you think he was the right choice?
