Sara Gruen, the author of 'Water for Elephants' tells Dallas News what she thought about Rob casted as Jacob in the movie.

What do you think of the casting for the movie of Water for Elephants? I think Robert Pattinson is really going to shine in that role. He's so dedicated. This was a rough-and-tumble shoot, and when I was there on the set, he'd be lying in the dirt for 18 straight takes in a row, and he would nail every single one. He's a nice guy, and he reads. He always has a book in his hand. My family got cameos. I'm in a scene where Rosie [the elephant] is raiding a produce stand.
