Dev Patel has landed a starring role - opposite Pamela Anderson.

The 20-year-old actor - who is dating his Slumdog Millionaire co-star Freida Pinto - takes on the lead role in a short film, The Commuter, which also features Ed Westwick in the cast.

The film will be shot entirely in mobile HD on the Nokia N8 smartphone and will be shown online after receiving a London premiere.

Dev won't be filming scenes with ex-Baywatch star Pam, who is seen lying in bed in the film.

Two film fans have won the chance to appear alongside the Hollywood stars in the production.

The flick is being directed by brothers Edward and Rory McHenry, who have just finished work on their first feature film, Jackboots On Whitehall, starring Ewan McGregor and Rosamund Pike.
