Duhamel getting first 'Date' with D'Works comedy

11 March 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Kate Bosworth finally has her movie star crush and DreamWorks Pictures and director Robert Luketic have found an actor to play the title role in the romantic comedy Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!!! Soap star Josh Duhamel will play the title role of Tad Hamilton in the film, which Red Wagon Entertainment's Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing from a script by Vic Levin. The project sees Bosworth playing Rosalee, a small-town grocery store clerk who finds herself the winner of a contest that gets her out of West Virginia to Hollywood for a date with the hottest, most eligible movie star, played by Duhamel. Once in town, on what should be the typical publicity meet-and-greet, she finds herself in the middle of a love triangle with the movie hunk and her longtime best friend (Topher Grace), a fellow clerk who has been in love with Rosalee since the sixth grade. The casting of Duhamel last week gave the project a May start date as his role was the last major one to be filled. According to sources, the studio and the producers first went after such big-name actors as Ben Affleck, Hugh Grant, Matthew McConaughey, James Franco and Heath Ledger to fill the key part before changing direction and getting a relative unknown like Duhamel. Red Wagon senior vp Matt Berenson and creative executive Pete Chiarelli brought the project to their company. At DreamWorks, the project is shepherded by production executive Marc Haimes. Duhamel is repped by the Gersh Agency and manager John Carrabino. His credits include All My Children and the NBC series Ed. »
