Does Rob Pattinson thirst for Oscar and Grammy glory?

April 13, 2009 |  4:38 pm

Rob Pattinson is a vampire with a serious appetite, career-wise. His next "Twilight" film, "New Moon," will feature the lofty star of two movies nominated for best picture at the Oscars — Michael Sheen ("The Queen," "Frost/Nixon").

Rob Pattinson Twilight Little Ashes How to Be

Entertainment Weekly wonders if director Chris Weitz "sought Sheen out because he'd lend the production credibility." Answer: Yes.

Rob Pattinson is seeking artistic validity on every front, including his other film projects. Today Yahoo posted the exclusive trailer to his next "serious" pic, "How to Be," an indie drama about a misfit twentysomething trying to become a serious musician after busting up with his galpal. (Most of the trailer can be seen in the "Access Hollywood" preview below.) It debuts on IFC on demand television on April 29. Rob Pattinson performs three songs in the film. The soundtrack will be released on April 28. Hmmm . . . could it contain Rob Pattinson's big Grammy hope?

Pattinson aims to be taken seriously as an artist on screen — literally, portraying Salvador Dali — in "Little Ashes," his next feature film due out on May 8.
