London: `Twilight` hunk Robert Pattinson is willing to star as sex and drug obsessed music industry figure Steven Stelfox in the movie adaptation of novel `Kill Your Friends`.
The British actor has his sights set on playing fictional record label A&R (Artist and Repertoire) man Steven Stelfox in the big screen adaptation of the novel written by former real life A&R man John Niven, reported Sun online.
In the book, Stelfox is working for a label in London in 1997 looking for new bands and pop stars to sign while at the same time fuelling his hedonistic lifestyle with cocaine and prostitutes.
"Rob is a huge fan of the novel. He is fascinated by the music industry and is keen to get involved in the project. He`s already approached producers telling them he wants to play the leading man. If he gets the role it will be the darkest part he`s ever played. It`s an incredibly adult character and is bound to shock his fan base," said a source.
The 24-year-old actor is not the only star trying to secure a role in the movie. Drum `n` bass artist Goldie has also asked bosses for a part.
