He may have the teen spirit but that's just the problem, he's too young.
According to Courtney Love the rumors that Robert Pattinson will play legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in a forthcoming biopic are just that: rumors.
Pattinson is much too young to play the suicidal singer, says Love, and blasted the rumors as 'stupid.' He was not and is not being considered, she said.
'Isn’t that so stupid?' Love told the Canadian Press of the casting speculation, 'That’s just so wrong.' The Hole singer, who is also Cobain’s widow, said that she recently watched 'the Twilight stuff,' and that 'it resonates with the teenaged girl in me,' but that she would much prefer the Cobain role go to either Ryan Gosling or James McAvoy.
Cobain brief life was previously depicted in the 2005 Gus Van Zant film 'Last Days,' though that movie was more experimental mood piece than biopic.
Twilight fans feel there's no role Pattinson can't make his own, but their confidence isn't shared by Love. What do you think? Has he got what it takes to pull it off?
