Seeing Rob Pattinson in this period movie “Water For Elephants” reminds us of James Dean in “East of Eden.” We’re thinking, that since James Franco bought the rights to Sal Mineo’s life story, he might want to think about casting Rob as Dean, who played a big part in Mineo’s world.

    YES! He totally reminds me James Dean even in Twilight. I could also see him playing Dorian Grey. He’s perfect for a remake.

    James Dean wasn’t hatchet-faced.

    …but Reese Witherspoon always had that long thin sharp pointed chin. truth hurts.

    Ha Indy, yeah. Hopefully Pattinson is too young for Whitherspoon. If they ever got together and then reproduced, their children would look like Tim Burton’s rendering of multipurpose tool sets.

    Janet…at about the 17th post that R Patz reminds you of James Dean, you need to be called out that you and ONLY YOU are pushing this point, columnist wise.

    If the great Johnny Depp can’t escape Pirates, why would not speaking and the same facial expression get Rob Pattinson anywhere?

    Ditto Susan Smith. Can’t picture Rob P as James Dean. Franco all the way.

    Between his studies and his marathon masturbation sessions, I don’t know how Franco manages to appear in any movie!
