Rumors have been flying for weeks now regarding Twilight alum Robert Pattinson’s upcoming movies. Two strange rumors just won’t seem to die. One of them has dubbed Pattinson as the new Han Solo in an upcoming Star Wars movie, and the other claims that Pattinson will be starring in an upcoming Indiana Jones movie.
Fans are having a hard time envisioning Pattinson in any role on Star Wars, and apparently he feels the same way. Rob sat down with Daily Beast to promote his new film The Rover. After discussing his new film, the news outlet asked Rob about the rumors regarding Han Solo. Not only did Rob completely laugh off the rumor, he actually thinks it is some sort of conspiracy against him.
When asked if he would be playing Han Solo he replied, “Oh no. I think all of these things are made up so I get tons of bad press. But literally this random story comes out and I get 50 other stories saying, like, “THAT GUY? NOOOO! What an asshole!”
Although Rob also denied rumors of joining the cast of Indiana Jones, he wasn’t as dismissive as he was regarding Han Solo. He gave the outlet a typical actor’s wishy-washy response, which usually means that he has discussed the part with TPTB; however, nothing is official so he can’t announce it yet.
So, for those Rob fans who were losing sleep at night over the thought of Pattinson in a Star Wars movie, you can rest easy now. However, Indiana Jones still hasn’t officially been ruled out. Would you like to see Rob Pattinson in Indiana Jones, or do you think it is career suicide? Or, do you think that Rob isn’t good enough to appear in an iconic film like Indiana Jones?
