Robert Pattinson to Play Kurt Cobain?

April 9, 2010

It’s being reported that Twilight cheeseball Robert Pattinson is set to play Kurt Cobain in a forthcoming biopic. *Tear*

The Sun reported today that the news is indeed true and that Pattinson has landed his "dream role." The Sun source said that Patttinson apparently "has always thought of himself as a musician rather than an actor" and that the role is "ideal for the pin-up." Whatever that means.

Even though The Sun is claiming this report to be fact, Spin has squashed all rumors with a quote from Courtney Love's manager. "That's an amazing story, and the first I've heard of any of this," Jonathan Daniel told "They manage to fit pretty much everyone in Hollywood into an article without one fact check and include a 'My First Photoshop' job as a 'mock up' to boot!"

Either way, the insane internet buzz created by this report might somehow get things moving on Pattinson starring as Kurt in an upcoming film. I’m gonna go barf now…
