In 2005, Robert Pattinson was named one of the “Stars of Tomorrow,” by Screen International magazine. The top pic shows him with his best friend, Tom Sturridge, Brit pack member Eddie Redmayne and Nina Sosany. It’s a newly released behind the scenes shot. The bottom pic is the one that ran in the magazine, and shows the entire group of future stars, which included Carey Mulligan, Natalie Tena, David Oyelowo, Natalie Dormer, and musician friend Johnny Flynn.
For people who say Rob has changed, I will point out that he’s still good friends with the people in this photo that he was friends with back then, and I swear, he’s still wearing the same clothes, Everyone grows and evolves, but he seems to fundamentally be the same person he always was, very grounded and down to earth.

shows is Game of Thrones, and the blonde, standing in the middle is Natalie Dormer. Full photo line up:

The “Redemption Story” I never knew I wanted but now need so much. One of the highlights of season two was the development of this character. Harold Cooper who has endured so much, from a terminal diagnosis, compromising his principles because of his desire to live, blackmail and then to discover the illness was just a manipulation by The Cabal. And though he stepped outside the law, he is still a man of integrity. Throwing those pills at Tom Connolly and saying he would rather die than be a part of any of it….wow. Coop, I’ve never been more proud. We need you back as the head of the task force and I hope this happens soon.
I’ve been dying for a scene when the task force gets to made aware of Liz’s continued relationship with Tom, but then I realized we kind of already got one. When Liz and Cooper and Red are discussing next steps and Red takes the call from Tom. Red tells Liz how “Tom is calling to take you away.” and Cooper sitting right there, silently watching the whole thing. Poor Cooper, imagine how confusing this has to be for him, like a Blacklist viewer who’s only seeing 25% of the shows. In his mind he’s probably going, “Wait, didn’t I perjure myself to protect Agent Keen from the consequences of illegally imprisoning and torturing that man? And now he wants to sail off into the sunset with her? Did I miss something?”
“The discipline is ridiculous and has no legitimate basis. In my opinion, this outcome was pre-determined; there was no fairness in the Wells investigation whatsoever. There is no evidence that Tom directed footballs be set at pressures below the allowable limits. In fact, the evidence shows Tom clearly emphasized that footballs be set at pressures within the rules. Tom also cooperated with the investigation and answered every question presented to him. The Wells Report presents significant evidence, however, that the NFL lacks standards or protocols with respect to its handling of footballs prior to games; this is not the fault of Tom or the Patriots. The report also presents significant evidence the NFL participated with the Colts in some type of pre-AFC Championship Game planning regarding the footballs. This fact may raise serious questions about the integrity of the games we view on Sundays. We will appeal, and if the hearing officer is completely independent and neutral, I am very confident the Wells Report will be exposed as an incredibly frail exercise in fact-finding and logic. The NFL has a well-documented history of making poor disciplinary decisions that often are overturned when truly independent and neutral judges or arbitrators preside, and a former federal judge has found the commissioner has abused his discretion in the past, so this outcome does not surprise me. Sadly, today’s decision diminishes the NFL as it tells its fans, players and coaches that the games on the field don’t count as much as the games played on Park Avenue.”
