Hear me out. I think it could work.
Robert Pattinson could be a solid fit for a Resident Evil 4-style Leon S. Kennedy. This is a Leon who, let’s be frank, has some trauma to him now. He’s a little broody-lookin’, a little jaded and he’s been sucked back into dealing with roaming, infected nightmares. We’re no stranger to Pattinson playing stand-offish characters, and we know he can step up for action roles (see The Batman).
Perhaps what really sells Pattinson as a fit for Leon is that strange humor the English actor carries with him. A slightly irreverent demeanour that fits into Resident Evil 4 so well. Pattinson has also proven himself to be one of the most interesting actors around — and we know he can rock the nineties curtains.
Do you agree with our picks? Or is there someone else you think would be an amazing pick for Leon S. Kennedy? Let us know in the comments below!
