Robert Pattinson May Play Kurt Cobain 2010-04-09 08:30:32

Robert Pattinson as Kurt Cobain — Spot on or so Wrong?

First it was Ewan McGregor. Then James McAvoy. Now, Robert Pattinson is the third Brit whose name has been thrown into the ring to play Kurt Cobain in the upcoming biopic of the Nirvana front man's life. If The Sun is to be believed (and I'm not saying it is), Courtney Love has her heart set on Pattinson to play her former husband, with Scarlett Johansson as her own likeness. I'm going to wait for some real confirmation before I make a decision, but what are your initial thoughts on Pattinson as Cobain — spot on or so wrong?

First and foremost, I am a die hard Nirvana fan. I also think Robert Pattinson is a damn fine actor. That being said, he would be seriously miscast as Kurt Cobain. I think in order to tell Kurt's story, someone who isn't known would be the best choice so we wouldn't be watching Big Name Actor instead of Kurt's story.

Robert Pattinson would be better suited to play John Lennon as far as resemblance is concerned. Plus he already has the British accent.

Anything's possible. I think Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) would be a better choice for playing Kurt Cobain.
