Could Robert Pattinson have some dreamboat competition?

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith Will 2011 be the year that Tom Sturridge joins his close pal Robert Pattinson as a leading big screen dreamboat? That’s what some movie insiders are predicting, with the 25-year-old British actor of “Vanity Fair” and “Pirate Radio” fame coming up with back-to-back films of interest this year, including the highly-anticipated adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” with Kristen Stewart and Garrett Hedlund.

First, however, there is the February release, “Waiting for Forever,” in which Sturridge plays a street performing juggler who chases after the love of his life, “The O.C.’s” Rachel Bilson. The cast also includes “The Vampire Diaries”‘ Matthew Davis, “Eurotrip’s” Scott Mechlowicz, Blythe Danner, Nikki Blonsky, and Richard Jenkins.

“It’s hard to describe. It’s somewhere between a love story and a quirky kind of comedy. It will make you laugh and cry, the same way as ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ or ‘Little Miss Sunshine,’” claims Jane Seymour. “It’s a different kind of movie and you can’t put it in a genre.”

How does she know? It so happens that the star of “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” fame is one of the producers of “Waiting for Forever” — which was directed by her husband, James Keach. “We’re incredibly proud of it,” she says.

MEANWHILE: Jane does not have a role in “Waiting for Forever,” but she’s going to be highly visible on big and small screen in the New Year.

First, there’s her Hallmark Channel original movie, “Perfectly Prudence” coming up Saturday (1/8) — the movie that reunites her with her “Dr. Quinn” leading man, Joe Lando, in a romantic comedy that also stars her daughter, Katie Flynn, with a fun cameo by hubby Keach. Jane returns to her popular character as television do-it-yourself maven Prudence McCoy, with Joe as a producer charged with revamping her show against her will.
