Robert Pattinson, Baby Bond?

Twilight star Robert Pattinson throws his name into the ring as a potential future James Bond. I’m interested in seeing what sort of actor Pattinson becomes: Daniel Craig has really transformed the role of 007 into a very modern action hero. With a personal trainer and a few years of hard living, could Pattinson season himself up for the part? Or will he be typecast as the milky milquetoast from the Twilight movies?

Also, the Royal Television Society awards were handed out last night. Congrats to Occupation‘s Peter Bowker and The InbetweenersIain Morris and Damon Beesley for their writers’ awards.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
