Dev films The Commuter in London

Dev Patel has been spotted looking flustered as he clutched a black briefcase outside the Mayfair Hotel in London.

But the suited and booted Slumdog Millionaire star was actually acting for a scene in The Commuter, a short comedy filmed with the Nokia N8 smartphone.

"I think it's going to be a really cool and edgy piece," said Dev.

Pamela Anderson and Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick also appear in the film, directed by the up-and-coming McHenry Brothers.

According to sources, Ed - famous for playing bad boy Chuck Bass in the teen drama - was very anxious about working with Pammie because he grew up with Baywatch and she was his first boyhood crush.

The McHenry siblings have just completed work on their first feature-length film, Jack Boots On Whitehall, which stars Ewan McGregor, Rosamund Pike and Richard E Grant.

:: Dev Patel and Ed Westwick are filming the new short film The Commuter, which is being filmed entirely in HD on the new Nokia N8.
