My Name is Not Edward: Meet Robert Pattinson Lookalike Ian Barnes

Meet Ian Barnes - a welder, musician...and Edward Cullen lookalike. Ian is such a dead-ringer for Robert Pattinson that even the actor's father did a double-take at a Twilight movie premiere that his son and his double attended!

What do you think?

So, how did Ian sink his teeth into this unusual opportunity? After the Twilight movie came out, a good friend (who was born and raised in Forks, oddly enough) told Ian that he resembled one of the actors, which he initially dismissed. However, once New Moon hit theaters, Ian knew he had to capitalize on his uncanny resemblance to RPatz. So, what did he do? Ian published the term "twi-dentified" in and headed to Forks, of course!

Ian recalls thinking, "I've got to go to Forks. That's where it's at!" And he was right.

Anointing himself "the world's most Twi-dentified man," Ian definitely turns heads while strolling down the town's Main Street, prompting photo-ops with visiting TwiHards. He's also partnered with Team Forks Twilight Tours to surprise passengers because, as Ian puts it, "That's actually the best part, making someone's day."

Last summer the Robert Pattinson doppelganger opened a photo op business in Forks. Not surprisingly, women happily paid Ian ten dollars to vamp it up in a picture with them.

Despite his "twi-dentified" success, once the sun sets on The Twilight Saga, Ian ultimately wants to pursue other interests as himself; specifically, published author. "It doesn't interest me to be a lookalike in an agency or some impersonator or tribute artist."

I looked at a few pics of this guy and he resembles Rob just slightly.

I went to his Facebook page and watched a video of him.  He looks less like him than I originally thought.  Rob is truly unique and the best part is, Rob is even more gorgeous in person.  Rob has a definite presence, whereas this guy does not.

Will you people relax? He's not claiming to be or look like either of them! The guy's hair looks like Edward's, but that's it. He's not out saying he is Rob's long-lost twin brother. Robert, if you ask me, is only handsome-looking as Edward - in real life Rob looks filthy and like he really is the walking dead.


You need to get a grip. Rob isn't the most lovely thing in this world, and the sooner that is realized the better if you ask me.
