    We know Edward Cullen is dashing, but what's hotter than Robert Pattinson playing a real, honest-to-goodness prince?

    If U.K. reports are to be believed—and that's a ginormous if—our favorite vampire may be in the running to take on the role of Prince Harry in an upcoming biopic.

    Of course, he faces some heady competition, including a certain broomstick baron we also know and love…

    Harry Potter's Rupert Grint and Keira Knightley's Rupert Friend (who was in Chéri with Michelle Pfeiffer) are also among the hotties in the running.

    According the Daily Mail, the film, called The Spare, will follow the 25-year-old royal's experiences with his parents' divorce, his mother's death and his tour of duty in Afghanistan.

    "He's a man born to no role, the heir and the spare," director Peter Kominsky told the British paper. "The human story is at the core of what we're trying to do."

    Well, that and providing the opportunity for us to ogle some serious man candy.
