Aussie stunner Jennifer Hawkins has agreed to star alongside
comedian Steve Martin in The Pink Panther 2. A sequel to
last year's remake of the classic Peter Sellers comedy, the film

"I'm so excited and even though I'm not going to be able to
accept the main role they've offered, I hope that we can still find

A couple of
years ago, too, Hawkins had to let go the lead role in the Adam
Sandler comedy Click owing to other commitments.
