Is there a way to add the template selection dropdown to the custom post type? Perhaps under Page Attributes?

So far it seems there is no native way to do it in WordPress, correct me if I am wrong. If you are okay with using plugins there is Custom Post Template that you could try.

Note that the plugin classes could also be extended - a very well written plugin and good recommendation. +1 – kaiser Jan 17 '12 at 18:24
