Robert Pattinson and James Franco Face Off for Jeff Buckley Biopic Role

Hold onto your hats, people; it’s an old-fashioned Hollywood casting showdown!

BlackBook reports that Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson and Milk hunk James Franco are both in contention for the lead role in an upcoming biopic about the tragic life of singer Jeff Buckley.

Buckley, the son of musician Tim Buckley—who died at the age of 28 from a drug and alcohol overdose—passed away from an apparent accidental drowning in May 1997. He was just 30.

Time will tell who will eventually land the role. On one hand, RPattz has already proven that he has the singing chops. On the other hand, Franco seems to be on a biopic roll, what with the award-winning Milk and his upcoming turn as beat poet Allen Ginsberg.
