Nick Stahl will follow up his role as JOHN CONNOR in T3: RISE OF THE MACHINES as a male prostitute in a contemporary twist on CHARLES DICKENS' Oliver Twist.

The IN THE BEDROOM star will play a character called DODGER - after the ARTFUL DODGER - in the tale, entitled TWIST, and he spent time with real male prostitutes in Toronto, Canada, to get a real feel for the seedy world.

He explains, "I shot it in Toronto and there's an abundance of male whores there.

"The ones I ended up talking to weren't necessarily gay, they just did it for money. It's a dark thing to do but I didn't want to do something that portrayed that kind of world dishonestly."
