An Old Friend
Where You’ve Seen Him:
The chisel-jawed Brit gained quite a few female fans with his role as handsome Triwizard Cup competitor Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Having already appeared in one best-selling book series turned movie franchise, Pattinson will next repeat that formula with a lead role in the highly anticipated vampire movie Twilight, alongside fellow rising star Kristen Stewart.
Based on the hype surrounding Twilight, we’re betting that by the time the film releases on Dec.12 and starts raking in serious box office cash, Pattinson should be well on his way to becoming the next Jude Law.
