Emily Mortimer in robot love?

Pert and perky British actress Emily Mortimer is set to join Ben Stiller and Jim Carrey in the upcoming comedy feature "Used Guys."

The film, set in a futuristic, woman-run society where men are cloned and sold like cars, revolves around two men who are in search of the lost meaning of manhood.

Mortimer will play Michelle, one of the few women who has not adapted to the idea of buying robot mates but reluctantly buys Stiller's character. Once they connect, they start to fall in love.

"Austin Powers" director Jay Roach is shooting the 20th Century Fox project, with a June 11 start date planned.

Mortimer's previous credits include "Lovely & Amazing," "Bright Young Things," "Match Point" and "The Pink Panther."
