Robert Pattinson jokes that he is in danger of being replaced by Hollywood rival Zac Efron for the Twilight sequels after the phenomenal success of the first movie.
The British actor joins co-star Kristen Stewart and director Catherine Hardwick on the audio commentary for the DVD, which was released in the US over the weekend and is available in the UK from April 6.
And, in between obsessing over Edward Cullen’s impressively sculpted eyebrows and “bouffant” hair, Rob suggests that movie bosses can now afford a high profile star for the lead role, rather than “an unemployed actor from London.”
“Where’s Efron?” he quips.
Thankfully, Rob’s casting suggestion has been ignored and he has started filming on the second Twilight installment, New Moon.

The pair – who have been pitted against one another ever since Rob was catapulted onto the A-list courtesy of his role in movie phenomenon Twilight – posed on the red carpet at the glittering event in identical tuxes.
Zac had slicked back his locks old-Hollywood-style for the ocassion, while Rob went for a more casual look – although, he had shaved off the beard he’s been sporting in recent weeks.
The High School Musical hottie lapped up the attention as he posed for pictures outside the Kodak theatre with girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens.
Rob on the other hand didn’t spend long on the red carpet – perhaps he was anxious about presenting an award on stage with Amanda Seyfried?

Please Rob… don’t! Your too good to work with Zac … lol
This would be a very hot threesome for a film and would deliver huge numbers for young girls. They would flock to see vampire hottie Robert Pattinson with anyone but if you add High School Musical hunk Zac Efron and singer and actor Justin Timberlake you have pretty much covered all of your bases. First it was the Pattinson and Vanessa Hudgens rumors, now he will work with Zac?
Threesome for Film: Robert Pattinson Teams With Zac Efron, JT? (Image: WENN)
According to an item from Hollyscoop that cites a report from Star this week the film will involve the drama behind the 1970 murders of anti-Vietnam War protesters at Kent State University. The report notes that the film is titled Ohio.
The magazine cites insiders that basically say that all the fellas are jealous of Rob Pattinson and his stratospheric rise to fame. Now the battle is behind the scenes to see what actor will land the big role. The whole story seems almost a stretch.
After watching Efron is his film roles, it would be interesting to see his I something like this, but it seems like a stretch. Justin Timberlake is a huge leap as well for almost any serious role. Pattinson was quite good in Twilight, and he is the only one I can see in a film such as the one described.
I’ll have to admit, I’m not surprised at the most recent tween debate. I remember my intense hatred for *NSYNC when I was in middle school. Not because I actually had good taste in music at the time. No, no, simply because I loved the Backstreet Boys so much. One cannot live while the other survives. Or at least that’s what I thought. So now, in a world that is once again full of teenyboppers, who are the real competitors? Evidently, it’s High School Musical vs. Twilight nowadays.
I’ll admit that I saw both High School Musical 3 and Twilight on opening weekend. I’ve seen all three HSM movies and I’ve read all four Twilight books. I may be all grown up but I’m still a tween at heart. Let’s put all loyalties aside though and truly try to figure out who is the better teen heartthrob: Robert Pattinson or Zac Efron?
To figure out which boy would make the better posterchild, I compiled a list of questions to determine which piece of man meat is better teen idol material.
When did he first hit mainstream?
Robert: First, as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 2005.
Zac: 2004 on Summerland, of course. Zac played Cameron Bale, the adorable but troubled boyfriend of little Nikki Westerly.
When did he gain heartthrob status?
Robert: For Twilight fans, July of 2008 at Comic Con. For the rest of the world, November of 2008 with the release of Twilight and the subsequent pandemonium.
Zac: January of 2006 with the airing of the original High School Musical. Girls were writing “Mrs. Troy Bolton” in their notebooks the very next day.
Does he have any special talents?
Robert: Evidently musically inclined. Robert writes his own music and costar Nikki Reed even grabbed a gem from his personal collection and the song was used as Bella’s lullaby for quite some time. He’s featured on the soundtrack with his song “Never Think.” In one interview, when asked what he wanted to do next, Pattinson stated he wanted to focus on his music.
Zac: He can sing and he can dance. Although his voice was blended with Andrew Seeley’s voice for the High School Musical soundtrack, it was only because the songs were written before Efron was cast and they were a bit difficult for his baritone range. Zac is more serious about acting than singing though.
How’s the hair?
Robert: His hair is shaggy, unkempt, and unwashed. It does, however, evoke wonderful images of a new age “bed head.” His hair in the Harry Potter days was clean and parted but didn’t look nearly as good. Update: Rob has ditched his luscious locks for a buzz cut, which probably requires as much maintenance as his previous unwashed, unbrushed do.
Zac: His hair is long, well maintained, swept to the right and carefully styled. Although it’s his current look, he’s shown the ability to sport many different hairstyles and still look fantastic.
When does he look best?
Robert: Honestly, with sunglasses. Not to say he isn’t beautiful without them because he is. It’s just that he gets this rock star vibe when he sports the shades. His devil may care attitude is enough to make any girl swoon.
Zac: Shirtless. Seriously. Go google image search Zac Efron. Shirtless, shirtless, shirtless. And believe me, no one is complaining. It’s simple math: Abs + Smile = Pure Joy for a teenage girl. I can’t even find a shirtless picture of Robert Pattinson out there and I’ve definitely tried.
Where’s he from?
Robert: London, England. Not only is he a city boy, he’s a London bloke. That means sexy accent. Think of that scene in Love Actually where the unattractive Colin travels to America to use his “cute British accent” on unsuspecting girls – now, if we’re taking that as a point of reference, Colin nabbed Shannon Elizabeth and Denise Richards, then Robert would be able to score the equivalent of Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry AND Jessica Alba. No joke. I might even throw in Jessica Biel for good measure.
Zac: San Luis Obispo, California. That makes him a surfer boy. Maybe.
Biggest thing holding him back?
Robert: He doesn’t seem to want to embrace his heartthrob status. He has been doing a ton of interviews, but he doesn’t seem to want the spotlight.
Zac: All the “Zac Efron is gay” rumors. It seriously hurts your heartthrob status if people think you are gay. Look at Clay Aiken. Wait, bad example. Look at Tom Cruise.
Is he single?
Robert: Yes. The recent rumors about the Twilight love triangle are intrieguing but have not proven to be true. Robert Pattinson is obsessed with Kristen Stewart, Kristen doesn’t care because she’s probably too busy smoking on stoops, and Nikki Reed is crazy jealous because she’s in love with Rob. If he starts dating Kristen, he could start a crazy phenomenon (see below).
Zac: No. Zac Efron is currently dating Vanessa Hudgens. Although he’s only 21, he already has a couple name: Zanessa. If that doesn’t scream tied down, I don’t know what does. This, however, doesn’t seem to bug any of his fans. They are as obsessed with Troy and Gabriella as they are obsessed with Zac and Vanessa.
After comparing Robert Pattinson and Zac Efron, I’ve determined that Zac Efron would make a better teen heartthrob… in the traditional sense. If I think back to how cheesy and wonderful *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys were, I know Zac’s the right fit. He’s willing to accept his status and carry out Disney’s bidding. But, in a world where Justin Timberlake is still king, I feel Robert Pattinson will be the longer lasting sensation if he doesn’t get too annoyed and run away to a hidden island in the Bermuda Triangle. I can only hope that one day, Rob will be bringing sexy back.
