    You know something… I’ve heard that this guy is a “Fantastic” or amazing actor. But his stint as a sparkling vampire hasn’t shed that away from me. So until he acts in a movie such that he gets oscar praise, at least a nomination, I don’t think I will watch much of his stuff… I mean till that day comes…

    Mr. Patterson has been nominated for, “How to be, The Rover and Map to stars”. They may not have been for Oscars, however, they were very note worthy. Of course his Roles on Harry Potter and Twilight movies had nominations. Perhaps your just not a fan. I love watching his movies and altho they may not all be hits, he has done some good work. I look forward to more from this young actor.
