The wailing and gnashing of teeth are about to reach a climax: the Twilight opening night approaches. But once Robert Pattinson is done driving tweens crazy, what will he do next? In a recent interview Pattinson admitted his real aim: to take over as the star of Doctor Who .When asked by the Chicago Tribune if he would be up for the part of the infamous time traveling quick-witted Doctor, Pattinson replied:
That would be quite cool. I didn’t know he was leaving. The Doctor is great…yeah, maybe. I did grow up watching it. I loved it when I was a kid. In fact, I met one of them the other day, Sylvester McCoy [the seventh Doctor]. He’s one of the few people I’ve asked for an autograph.Mother of god. I don't know if I can handle that many screaming girls while I'm trying to enjoy my TARDIS. Will this happen, who knows, but all in all you I'd like to think that he's a wee bit young to take on such a lofty job. Still stranger things have happened. But meanwhile, only a few more days remains until the Earth cracks open with the sonic power of the squee heard around the globe. But I think more than my simple words, the art of dedicated Twilight fan (and cool chick) Julia Carusillo best demonstrates the overall fan sentiment that is hurry up before I claw my eyes out — enjoy!
