Kristen goes 'On the Road'

In some great news Kristen has been cast as Marylou in the onscreen adaptation of Jack Kerouac's Iconic road tripper novel 'On the Road'. The movie will be directed by Walter Salles.  According to HitFix:

"Kerouac's mostly autobiographic and critically acclaimed novel centers on trips he took with friends across America in the 1950s.  The author's alter ego, Dean Moriarty, will be played by "Tron Legacy's" Garrett Hedlund.  According to the Hollywood Reporter, Stewart will play Moriarty's "on-and-off" wife Marylou.  Sam Riley, who shined in the indie "Control," will play Keruoac's alter ego Sal Paradise."
