People Are Baffled By Robert Pattinson's New Accent In 'The Devil All The Time'
The mark of a good actor is being able to switch from happy to sad, good to evil and, as Robert Pattinson has just proved, from softly spoken all-American boy-next-door to utterly terrifying Southern preacher, from script to script.
The Twilight star, 34, has left fans scratching their heads with his latest role in The Devil All The Time, in which he seemingly pulls the most spine-tingling high pitched southern American accent from nowhere.
Take a look at him in action here:
The Netflix movie, based in southern Ohio and West Virginia, follows young Arvin Russell ( played by Tom Holland) as he is converged by sinister characters who threaten his family.
"Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam war, director Antonio Campos' The Devil All The Time renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted," says Netflix.
One of these characters is an unholy preacher, played by Pattinson, along with a twisted couple (Jason Clarke and Riley Keough) and crooked sheriff (Sebastian Stan).
According to Insider, Pattisons had kept his chilling accent - which he had been crafting privately for days - a secret from the entire cast and crew, including the director Antonio Campos, until the first day on set.
Fans who have watched the film - which is currently ranking at number two on Netflix's most-watched - are already losing their minds over the Twilight actor's accent.
