Dare we say it, but is Robert Pattinson’s reign as number one hottie almost over? Hot on his heels on the Twilight set is 25-year-old newcomer Xavier Samuel…

According to the Hollywood Reporter, this relatively unknown Aussie actor has landed the role of Riley in the third installment of the Twilight series, Eclipse – a college student who becomes caught up in the battle between Rachel Lefevre’s Victoria and Kristen Stewart’s Bella.

At present, his resume only features a handful of homegrown flicks, including Newcastle and Road Train, but this part will surely propel him into the spotlight – even if we have to wait until June 2010 to watch the results.
