Kristen Stewart, Ben Affleck to co-star in comedy

We don't typically get to see Kristen Stewart's humorous side, but we will in an upcoming movie.

The actress confirmed to the Huffington Post that she's going to play an inexperienced con artist in the movie "Focus," which also stars Ben Affleck.

The "Argo" filmmaker portrays a more experienced swindler who teams up with Stewart's character during his travels, and presumably hilarious moments ensue. It'll be directed by the same pair who led "Crazy, Stupid, Love," Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. Shooting is expected to start in April.

Affleck, for one, should be happy to hear that 22-year-old Stewart's on board, as he was hoping this would come to pass. "She's terrific," he told E! News of his now certain co-star.
