ARTICLE: Hal Holbrook talks about meeting Robert Pattinson for the first time

The youngest picture I could find of Hal...pretty good resemblance ;)

Hal Holbrook is portraying Mark Twain in San Diego and recently spoke to SignOnSanDiego.com about meeting Robert Pattinson for the first time. Here’s the excerpt when he mentions Water for Elephants & Rob.

And while Holbrook is constantly looking to the past to inform the future, the “Wall Street” actor still has some interesting run-ins with Hollywood up-and-comers. On the set of his upcoming movie, “Water for Elephants,” Holbrook worked alongside everyone’s favorite vampire — teenage heartthrob Robert Pattinson (of the “Twilight” series).

I was astonished when I met him, because I met him with a couple friends of mine and the minute I looked at him, I said to him, ‘My God, you look like me as a young man,’” Holbrook said. “Everyone who was with me said, ‘Yeah, he really does.’

If you’re in the San Diego area and love some Mark Twain, go check out this veteran actor we will soon adore as Jacob Jankowski. :)

    I wish Hal would attend the premieres, too (preferable the Berlin one since I am going to be there). I wanna tell him how brilliant he is in Into The Wild and That Evening Sun. *sigh*

    Wow. that really is amazing! who knew how handsome he used to be. i looked at the picture of him older and saw some resemblance to Rob’s dad too. But this is amazing!

    Hal is a perfect older Jacob and as I read it again I had all of the cast in my head.
    I just want to thank all of you for this amazing site. All the effort and hard work you have put into it …..I hope pays off for you at the premiere ;)
    This has been a fun place to come and I hope the whole cast is there that night.

      I totally agree with you Dee. I have so enjoyed following this Water for Elephants site in preparation for the big day. And I am ecstatic about going to New York April 16-18 and supporting all things WFE. Thank you so much ladies (Kinkers) for creating this site and keeping us informed! See you ladies in New York!
