Ladies & Gentleman, Your New Edward Cullen Is…

Wait for it...Paul Giamatti. Okay — stop laughing. Though the accomplished, talented Giamatti lacks Robert Pattinson's cheekbones, defined chin, and (most of his) hair, you can see in this video that he has the British youngster beat when it comes to pure animal passion. Face it, you know in your heart that Pattinson's interpretation of Edward Cullen was staid and bloodless (a bad quality for a vampire). Now, finally, we have the real Edward from the Twilight books — fiery, emotional, and very, very shouty. (That was Edward in the books, right? Lots of yelling?) RPatz may have the looks, but it's PGiamz who has the raw sexuality the part requires. If you don't believe us, just keep watching the video below. A bonus: His take on Channing Tatum's Magic Mike is an erotic revelation. A revelation. (Vulture)
