Young actor pines for bigger roles

ACTOR Robert Pattinson is "annoyed" by the roles he plays.

The 23-year-old star - who shot to fame playing vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight - claims he is rarely given roles that test his acting skills.

The star complained: "Annoyingly, there are so few parts I feel I can add anything to, or that I want to do. Acting is the hardest thing I've ever done in my life.

"I don't want to be an actor for the sake of it. I don't find any particular pleasure in being an attention-seeker."

Pattinson admits he is intimidated by his newfound fame, insisting he thought the film adaptation of Stephanie Meyer's vampire drama would be "something really small".

Meanwhile, Razorlight want Noel Gallagher to produce their next album.

The In The Morning rockers are huge fans of the former Oasis star and would love to team up with him as they think he'd bring a different sound to their LP.

Guitarist Bjorn Sten Agren said: "I'd be interested in hearing a Noel solo album. He's got a better voice than his brother Liam. We're looking for a producer. We need some Northern credibility."

Gallagher quit Oasis last month after a furious row with sibling Liam, who is the group's frontman, seemingly ending the band's 16-year career.

It was recently reported Gallagher will join Kasabian on their forthcoming tour.

Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan said: "We've got our arena tour in November. Noel will be calling us up nearer the time for sure saying, 'Guys, I'm going to come perform with you on tour'."

"He's a performing machine, and loves playing live so he jumps at the opportunity whenever he can join us."

Meighan also revealed the band may also record a track with Gallagher in the future.

He said: "We'd love to do a track with him." - Bang
