Following in the footsteps of Heidi Montag, who we learned last week was hoping to snag Megan Fox's role in Transformers 3, another reality star wants to parlay her fame into sci-fi superstardom. Kim Kardashian, of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, wants to take over for Angelina Jolie in the next installment of the Tomb Raider movie franchise, and she's supposedly already in talks for the role.

"This will be something very different to Angelina's Lara," an anonymous source told ShowBizSpy. "Kim is wanted to play a far more comic-strip version of Lara which would be shot in 3-D and aimed at a teen audience."

The source also added, "Kim has been attending acting classes for some time." But will those be enough to get her the lead in one of Hollywood's largest franchises?

We have no idea. But if this bizarre new trend turns out to have legs, please save us from having to see the cast of Jersey Shore on screen as The Avengers!
