I know you just read the title and are pissed off, hey, I just typed it how do you think I feel? Count Sparkleula recently sat down with with the Guardian UK to talk about wrapping up the Twilight franchise and what the future holds for him.
“You can kind of have two failures—and they’d better be low-budget failures. … Because if you have one big-budget failure you’re pretty much done in this environment.”
Well, that makes sense, even a reasonable outlook. Remember Me thankfully bombed at the box office, he’s got a handful of post-Twilight projects lined up, could we be one cinematic turkey away from being free from him? Let’s hope, ’cause after that he said this.
“It’s like being compared to people who’ve been in massive movies who just sort of disappear afterwards, even though they probably had incredibly fulfilling and successful lives. … Like Luke Skywalker…. People are like: ‘Oh, the Mark Hamill curse.’ And poor Mark Hamill. Jesus Christ.”
You know, I am a pretty easy going guy. Sure I have a tendency to get a little animated by a few things, but rarely would I wish bad upon someone else. I am mostly a live and let live kind of dude.
That being said, Robert Pattinson should die in a car fire.
You do not get to draw any comparisons to Mr. Luke Skywalker. He was iconic in a franchise that runs deep in our pop culture, Twilight will be forgotten whenever the next fad springs up that appeals to lonely 13 year old girls and soccer moms alike. Hamill’s boyish appeal took a hit after a horrible car crash (no, not Corvette Summer, a real car crash) between the filming of Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back caused some major scarring. Post Star Wars he still went on to do some great albeit low budget films and excelled in the voice over world including his iconic portrayal as the Joker.
Mr. Pattinson, you would be so lucky to have Mark Hamill’s career.
