R-Patz says he’d play Jar Jar Binks

The Twilight star wants to sign up for Star Wars, no matter the cost…

“Do you still love me now, Twihards?”

Twilight actor Robert Pattinson is on the hunt for a new franchise to star in and, naturally, Star Wars has come up. When asked by a Tabloid whether he would sign up for another franchise after one as lengthy as Twilight, he replied:

Yeah I think that’s a powerful thing. You look at something like Star Wars. No one’s going to call Star Was a franchise… Just after the new ones. [Laughs] The first three, that was a series, not a franchise.

Then he was asked whether he would consider taking a role in Episode 7 and, unsurprisingly, he replied, “Absolutely. In a heartbeat.”

But then… he was asked if he’d take it even if that role was Jar Jar Binks, to which he replied,

I actually kind of like Jar Jar. I don’t understand what the big deal is about Jar Jar.

Binks with a mumbling, melodramatic Edward Cullen voice? And there was us thinking he couldn’t get more annoying…
