Robert Pattinson Ditches Morality For Bel Ami image
Robert Pattinson has wasted no time in parlaying his newfound Twilight fame into a secondary career as a serious actor. Sure hes currently shooting the sequel New Moon, but outside of Twilight hes lining up heavy, indie-dramas left and right. The latest added to his dance card is a movie called Bel Ami, based on a short story of the same name.

The short story follows a young journalist who find himself face to face with a corrupt society full of corrupt people. To survive he becomes one of them: a master seducer, a blackmailer, and shameless social climber. Speaking to Variety director Declan Donnellan describes the character as totally amoral. Basically hes kind of a dick which, based on his work in Twilight, I can see the naturally aloof Pattinson pulling off with total ease.
