Viewers Baffled By Robert Pattinson's Accent In The Devil All The Time

Just in case you hadn't noticed, Robert Pattison has proved to be one of the most versatile actors in modern times.

While fans might know him from such franchises as Twilight and the upcoming Batman movie, the actor has been killing it in indie films - including Netflix's The Devil All The Time.

The trailer alone has got fans talking, most notably because of his wild accent capabilities - which has gone from English to French to Southern American.

Speaking to Insider, director Antonio Campos revealed that Robert kept his accent completely schtum, opting to make his own unique character.

"Rob was impossible to get dialect coaching," he said. "He just didn't want to do it. He was just adamant about figuring it out on his own.

"He would be like, 'I'm going to do this thing and that thing, with a little bit of this', but he didn't actually reveal his accent until the day of filming."

Of course, his Southern drawl has people talking, as well as his all-star performance alongside Spiderman's Tom Holland.

The film itself is based on the critically acclaimed gothic novel by Donald Ray Pollock, published in 2011.

Its plot follows a forgotten area of America where an insidious set of characters - including preacher Preston Teagardin (played by Pattison) - team up with a husband-and-wife group of serial kill­ers, a local sheriff and a young orphan.

These characters are played by Jason Clarke, Riley Keough, Sebastian Stan and Holland respectively.

The compelling cast are called upon from the end of World War II to the early 1960s, during which time landscapes are covered by the spider-loving hillbilly preachers, murderers and god-fearing families.

Holland's character Arvin Young battles the evil forces that threatens him and his family, while Pattison's preacher fights the towns teaming with corruption and brutality.

And if you're wondering what fans think of Pattison's accent, here are a few two cents: "Hearing Robert Pattinson in a southern accent is so weird," wrote one excited viewer.

A second said: "Hearing the accent Robert Pattinson used in The Devil all the Time has honestly ruined my week".

"That nasal southern accent has to be one of the best interpretations by an actor," said a third.

"I'll wait for the YT Accent tutor to dissect this and confirm my theory. Robert Pattinson, that piece of art, really showed us a sleazeball be the sleaziest with a sleazy tone."
