Robert Pattinson and Overnight Sex Symbol?

MTV mentions actors such as James Dean and Brad Pitt who have had breakout careers and have transformed into major movie stars from one major role. Does Rob have what it takes? Will he launch a decades-long career? Here is a bit from the article:

Every now and then, a movie comes out that transforms a male actor into someone to be desired, adored and often watched for decades to come.

James Dean
Arguably the greatest male cinematic sex symbol of all time, actors like Pattinson and James Franco continue to owe a huge debt to lived-fast, died-young legend. When 1955's "Rebel without a Cause" hit theaters, it made Dean an overnight sensation that was like RPattz's "Twilight" success times 10. Decades later, Hollywood continues to wonder what sort of career Dean would have built had he lived past age 24; the ultimate cautionary tale for young Hollywood sensations, Dean will always be a reminder of the dark side of sudden fame.
