The Australian Premiere of David Michôd’s acclaimed film ‘The Rover’ was held on Saturday June the 7th at the iconic Sydney State Theatre, as part of the Sydney Film Festival. Stars Guy Pearce & Robert Pattinson were in attendance, and the actors spent a good hour signing autographs and posing for pictures with the hordes of fans. All these Team Edward TwiHards were screaming their lungs out when they finally got to see “R-Patz” in the flesh.
Since the actors spent so much time with the fans there wasn’t a lot of time left for them to speak with the media. As a result the duo rushed their way through a battalion of reporters, who were only allowed to ask one question to both stars at the same time.
Spotlight Report expected an interesting answer by asking these actors how they pick their roles; Guy Pearce has stated in the past he wants to do at least one small Aussie movie for each Hollywood film that he does, plus the man’s filmography is so eclectic that he really seems to seek out different types of films and roles.
Patterson on the other hand seems to be steering away from mainstream teenybopperfare since he finished Twilight, and specifically seems to pick edgier roles in smaller movies by acclaimed filmmakers such as David Cronenberg or The Rover’s David Michôd.
Since Guy and David were hastily making their way into the theatre, there was no opportunity to get a proper insight in how their selection process works. Yet Guy was friendly and charming, a sharp contrast from the grim and desperate title character he plays in ‘The Rover’.
