Meet the special ops guy who brought down Saddam Hussein.
Robert Pattinson looks set to play Staff Sergeant Eric Maddox in Blacklist, a movie about the investigator that interviewed 300 people to find the Iraqi dictator.
You might not think of RPattz as the obvious choice for the role, but consider this…
- He’s used to being the hunter as vampire hunk Edward Cullen, so just think of this as more a daylight desk-bound hunter version of him.
- Sergeant Maddox arrived in Iraq with just one change of clothes, a blue shirt which he had to wear for weeks. Rob certainly knows how to get what he wants in one of those.
The psychological thriller is yet another bold direction for the actor who recently starred as the romantic lead in Water for Elephants and a gangster in recently filmed Cosmopolis.
