Josh Duhamel drinks Coors Light, eats red meat and likes to throw a football around. He's simply not the kind of guy you imagine sitting on a beach and writing in a journal, or reading a Nicholas Sparks novel. And yet…
"I'm a big fan. All of his stories will stand the test of time," Duhamel says of Sparks, author of "The Notebook," "Dear John," "The Last Song" and "The Lucky One." He's on the phone from the L.A. home he shares with his wife Fergie, singer for The Black Eyed Peas.
With this month's Safe Haven, Duhamel becomes the latest square-jawed actor cast as the leading man in an adaptation of a Sparks novel, a list that includes the stars of the abovementioned movies Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum, Liam Hemsworth and Zac Efron.
"I didn't want to do something that was going to be compared to a long line of other movies. »
