The Hollywood Hottie Meter is kicking into overdrive in the wake of rumors that hunky heartthrobs Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron, and Justin Timberlake are each being courted for major roles in Ohio, an upcoming film based on the 1970 murders of anti-Vietnam War protesters at Kent State University.
But if you’re expecting a major Bromance to break out behind the scenes, don’t hold your breath. Star Magazine claims Justin, 28, and former High School Musical star Zac Efron, 21, feel that they are bigger names than big screen newcomer Robert, who skyrocketed to stardom after getting his big break in the hit 2008 vampire epic Twilight. Both Zac and J.T. are unnerved that Rob’s been offered first stab at Ohio’s lead role, according to a squealing tabloid spy.
“Everyone in the industry is shocked that Rob is already getting such big roles,” says an insider.
“Zac and Justin have been working for a lot longer than he has. There is a bit of jealousy there.”
“Zac’s people want him to have the lead. And Justin’s people have asked that he get a lot of screen time.”
