Robert Pattinson Not To Appear In 'Breaking Dawn'

LOS ANGELES, CA – Twilight Saga star and Hollywood heart-throb Robert Pattinson has confirmed that he is not going to appear in the Eclipse
sequel, Breaking Dawn.

Pattinson’s next film, the latest in the Twilight Saga, Eclipse, is set to hit June 30, 2010.

Although appearing as the “virtuous” Vampire Edward Cullen in the first three Twilight Saga films, Pattinson has stated that a heavy workload and scheduling conflicts have come
between him and returning as Edward Cullen in the final
episode, Breaking Dawn.

“I really loved playing Edward. I loved working with [Twilight co-star and onscreen love interest] Kristen [Stewart]” Pattinson reminisced. “I’ll miss being on set, the energy,
and all of the amazing Twilight fans out there.”

Summit Rep Stacy Williamson has come out and stated that, “While we were initially saddened by Rob’s decision, we feel the fans will ultimately
be open to the idea. I mean, James Bond wasn’t always played by Sean
Connery. It’s not a big deal.”

So far fan reaction is anything but mixed. When Arby’s employee and self-proclaimed “Twi-hard” Jessica Linfield, 17, heard of Robert’s decision, she was anything but giddy. “OH MY GAAHH!

Seeing Jessica upset, co-worker and toy-train enthusiast Mark White, who
has had feelings for Jessica for the past 3 months, attempted to
console her saying, "Jessica, he clearly never cared about the fans. He
left Twilight. He left you."
Jessica turned to violence, striking Timothy across the face and
exclaiming, “Get away from me, you freak! Stop trying to be as cool as a
Vampire! You will never have my heart. You're nothing but an

Mark, clearly wounded, retorted, "Jessica, I would never hurt you." Jessica was last seen clutching a 4x6 of Robert Pattinson, crying.

As of press time, Summit has yet to name a definite substitute for
Pattinson, however, they have narrowed their search down to four
potential Edward-replacements. They are:

Johnny Galecki. The affable geek from CBS’s hit show The Big Bang Theory. Many at Summit believe he has the ‘brooding look’ that really makes Edward who
he is. As of now, his schedule appears to be fairly open. Also,
initial reports state that his chemistry with Kristen
(who is believed to remain playing Bella) is superb. Johnny's height,
5'5", may be an issue if he is to play Edward Cullen, who Robert
Pattinson portrayed at 6'1". If Johnny is cast, he may wear some sort
of lifts, or Kristen Stewart may simply act on her knees.

Michael Welch. Although he already had a role in Twilight & New Moon,
Michael Welch has made Summit's top four to replace Robert Pattinson.
When asked about this, Rep Williamson said, "Michael is a brilliant
actor. He has great range. His little tuft with Jacob in New Moon
could easily progress into a far more epic clash if he is to play
Edward. Obviously we would have to recast Mike, but that's something
we'd be willing to do." Initial reports suggest that if Welch is cast
as the new Edward, the character Mike may be left out of Breaking

Justin Long. While many
recognize him from the "Mac commercials," Justin has also appeared in .
Many feel as if his struggles alongside "PC" parallel the "battle" for
Bella between Edward and Jacob. Justin's ability to completely shut
down "PC" in the commercials with a simple sarcastic comment is the top
reason he is being considered for Edward in Breaking Dawn. Obviously, whoever
plays Edward must be able to "shut down" Jacob in
Breaking Dawn through any means
necessary, sarcasm included.

Daniel Radcliffe. Daniel is just finishing up filming some other movies, so he's free to do pretty much whatever at this point. He has
experience playing a character that is "magical" and also has an English
accent that he can most likely convert to an American one. His face is
fairly recognizable, but not to the point where people don't still
confuse him with Elijah Wood. One downside to Daniel playing Edward is
the fact that he is contractually obligated to wear large, black-rimmed
glasses in every film he appears in. Summit believes, however, the
glasses could add a new layer to Edward's character.

I'm speechless................................ :/ IDK, I'm thinking this is an April Fool's joke... especially about Jessica...

I just looked on Gossip Cop and they said it was an April Fools Joke, but I can tell you one thing, that was so not funny to me, I totally believed it, I cried and everything, I feel really stupid now. But I'm still a little bit worried, I think I would freak out if Rob really was not doing Breaking Dawn it's my favorite book out of the saga. Thank god he really is doing it.
