Guy Pearce Talks About Rob and 'The Rover': "OK, he is just going to be fantastic"

Herald Sun
The two actors have just spent seven weeks together in the South Australian Outback, filming director David Michod's hotly-anticipated follow-up to Animal Kingdom, with Pearce waxing lyrical about his co-stars "beautiful face".

"The best thing about Rob is that he is a really great actor," says Pearce.

"Watching the rushes back, you go: 'OK, he is just going to be fantastic'."

Guy Pearce says his co-star in The Rover Robert Pattinson is a 'great actor'.

The Twilight star plays white trailer trash from the southern states of America in the futuristic western, set in an apocalyptic near future where society has broken down in the wake of a severe financial crisis.

"He plays (the character) slightly backward, emotionally useless and really vulnerable," says Pearce.

"He's got this beautiful face so you are completely entranced by that face no matter how ugly he makes himself or how wounded he is, or how manky his haircut."

Guy talks about The Rover at 3:25 - "It's a very dark film and Robert Pattinson and I got to do some really interesting stuff together"

I loved Guy in Priscilla... and I saw him in Michod's Animal Kingdom. And never knew he played in King's speech - though I focused on Colin Firth in that.
I'm impatiently waiting for this film, and hope it will come to my country.

Looking forward to watch Guy and Rob interact in this film. I am especially looking forward to see how Rob acts as white trailer trash w/a southern accent. Very excited. I think Guy is a tremendous actor and is so eclectic in his roles, I believe Rob will be as eclectic with his roles, he will never be boring, like some of these other actors that play the same genre or film theme.

Beautiful words. I wish them both the very best, they deserve all that's good. How dedicated and committed to have worked in such difficult conditions.

twmmy, I really hope the movie does come to your country. Do you mind me asking where you are from? I'm from Australia.
