After the success of 'The Notebook', 'Dear John', 'The Lucky One', actor Josh Duhamel could have been forgiven for signing up to anything from the pen of uber-author Nicholas Sparks. He says he thinks he would have resisted...

"I would like to think I'm more selective than that," he laughs in London.

"I admire the guys who have done these movies before, it's flattering to be asked, but you don't want to be another pining dude. I did like that there was a darker edge to 'Safe Haven'.

"At first I wasn't sure if there was much I could do, but I worked really hard and changed some stuff from the book. And Nicholas Sparks just let me go, saying, 'whatever you do, don't make him boring.'"
