Should Robert Pattinson Voice Jar-Jar Binks in Upcoming 'Star Wars' Movies?

Having conquered two film franchises already (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Twilight)and being heavily rumored for a brief while for a role in The Hunger Games series, Robert Pattinson is game to board another mega-franchise.

Speaking to Gulf News, Pattinson spent most of his time talking about working on the Twilight franchise and dealing with the fame that the highly successful franchise brought, but he closed with a rather interesting tidbit.

Now, granted this may just be Pattinson playing the nice guy interviewee role, but when asked if he were approached with a part in one of the three upcoming Star Wars movies, would he want to play a role.

"Oh, absolutely. In a heartbeat," Pattinson said.

The reporter pressed and asked, "What if they ask you to play Jar-Jar?" and unfazed, Pattinson responded, "I actually kind of like Jar-Jar. I don't understand what the big deal is about Jar-Jar."

Which leads us to this purely speculative question: If offered the role, do you think Pattinson should play Jar-Jar Binks in an upcoming Star Wars movie? Of course, we're hoping we don't see one of the most hated characters in movie history appear in the new Star Wars trilogy.
