Cam Gigandet to Co-Star in Christina Aguilera’s ‘Burlesque’
Well, wonder no more!
The Twilight hunk has revealed to MTV that he will be co-starring with the “Genie in a Bottle” singer in her upcoming acting debut, Burlesque. And to hear him tell it, the romantic sparks are gonna fly!
“It’s about a girl from the Midwest who moves out to Los Angeles to pursue her career as a singer. Obviously, it’s Christina Aguilera, so she has an amazing voice. She finds a club run by Cher, a burlesque club. And she takes it to a whole new level and, of course, meets me—the love of her life.”
Gigandet adds, “It’s a very sexy, sexy movie.”
Just don’t expect him to do any singing in the movie, even though it will contain heavy musical elements.
“Oh right, a duet with me and Christina?” Gigandet laughs. “That would be like Kermit the Frog and Christina. I can’t sing.”
Hey, don’t hate on Kermit’s singing skills, Cam. “The Rainbow Connection” still brings a tear to our eye. (Yes, we said it.)
Burlesque, which begins filming in December, is slated for a November 24, 2010 release.
