Cam Gigandet to Co-Star in Christina Aguilera’s ‘Burlesque’

Celebuzz / September 22, 2009

Many have wondered, “When will Cam Gigandet and Christina Aguilera finally come together on the big screen?”

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!

Says Gigandet,

“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.
