Introducing Xavier Samuel… The new Robert Pattinson?

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.
