Robert Pattinson Gets an Extremely Sexy Notch in His Leading Man Belt

robert pattinsonKristen Stewart probably hasn't been too terribly worried about any of Robert Pattinson's leading ladies up until now -- but she may be squirming in her seat a little bit now that he's been cast in an upcoming film with the ever-so-sexy Scarlett Johansson. (RPattz & ScarJo? Oh MY!)

Yep -- it's true! Rob and Scarlett are set to star opposite each other in Hate Mail, but I'm guessing there won't be too much "hate" going on between the two of them on-screen, if you catch my drift. If anything, there will likely be a whole lot more lovin' than anything else. What would be the point of putting two major hotties together if they weren't going to hook up?!


More from The Stir: Robert Pattinson Appears to Dig Strip Clubs. That's Hot.

Hate Mail will also star Philip Seymour Hoffman, but other than that, no other details about the movie have been released.

It's going to be kind of hard for Rob to ever completely shake his Edward Cullen persona, but it does seem like he's definitely being taken seriously as an actor in Hollywood. And as his film roles get more dramatic and further away from Twilight -- his leading ladies just keep getting sexier and sexier.

Starring opposite Reese Witherspoon in Water for Elephants was a very big deal for Rob's career, but it was hard to get too wrapped in their romance since we all know she's a married mom of two (and now one on the way). But he'll be heating things up quite a bit with Christina Ricci in Bel Ami, and then we can always hope for some pretty steamy scenes between him and ScarJo.

But considering just how much of a sex symbol Scarlett Johansson is -- we can't help but wonder who will be able to follow in her footsteps as far as a sizzling match-up for Rob. She's a pretty tough act to follow! (Any suggestions?)

If you could cast Robert Pattinson opposite any actress, who would it be and why?
