One is a living legend in music and movies, the other is a living legend about to make her movie debut. Now, Christina Aguilera and Cher are being joined by a red-hot "Twilight" star who will be appearing in his first musical opposite the two famous females: Cam Gigandet.

"I'm shooting a movie called 'Burlesque' with Christina Aguilera in her acting debut," revealed Gigandet when he stopped by the MTV studio recently. "And Cher."

X-tina's fans have been eager to learn details on "Burlesque" since the project was announced last June, especially since it will mark her big-screen debut. Now questions about how good an actress she'll be are made a bit easier by the news that she'll have a talented leading man acting opposite her.

"It's about a girl from the Midwest who moves out to Los Angeles to pursue her career as a singer," explained Gigandet, whose busy post-"Twilight" schedule has him releasing the sci-fi flick "Pandorum" this weekend. "Obviously, it's Christina Aguilera, so she has an amazing voice. She finds a club run by Cher, a burlesque club. And she takes it to a whole level and, of course, meets me — the love of her life.

"I am a struggling piano player, and I'm currently working as a bartender at Cher's burlesque club," Gigandet said of his character. "Christina and I meet, fall in love, and drama ensues."

The next question is an obvious one for "Twilight" fans: Will Cam sing and dance? When we asked the star, he hesitated to even call "Burlesque" a musical. "That's interesting — I don't know. There's music in it, and they do sing. I mean, they're at a burlesque club, so they do sing and dance," he explained. "It's a very sexy, sexy movie."

But this much Cam would confirm: He will not be singing any two-part harmonies with his new leading lady. "Oh right, a duet with me and Christina?" he laughed, looking forward to the film that begins shooting in December. "That would be like Kermit the Frog and Christina. I can't sing."
