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

By: Derrick Deane on November 15, 2012 at 11:29AM Comments (26)

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.

    What would make anyone think that Pattinson has any kind of animated voice talent?? Who comes up with this crap? I vote Seth Rogan, or Seth McFarlen.

    OR how about the same guy who did in the first place? They would just have to put an "old Jar-Jar" spin on it.

    no he should`nt ! in fact there should be no more star wars films , let it rest ! and the idea I`ve been hearing of resurrecting darth vader is not only stupid , it wont tie in to the earlier films ! if you remember anakin was not only dead at the end of the series , he died a hero for the good guys !

    Firstly, Rob Pattinson was in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire--not Order of the Phoenix. Secondly, I would see anything that he was involved with (believe me, I sat through Cosmopolis!). So if the franchise wants to be assured an audience it doesn't usually get, hire Rob and the Twi-fans will show up in droves!

    Although I can't see Robert impersonating Jar Jar's voice, the bigger problem here is having Jar Jar back in Star Wars

    Yes,he was just in "The Goblet of Fire"and he'll just be doing a voice he won't be in front of the camera so I don't see what the big deal is.I really think nothing of the idea.

    Jar-Jar Binks is what ruined Star Wars because he and his voice is so annoying! They said he was only put in there for the younger kids.

    I don't think so...'the role of STAR WARS Jar-Jar Binks should go to either Chris Rock, Ricky Gervais or Chris Tucker someone with outstanding quick-wit about them in which all these famous Comedians are known for. Their awesome!!
