Colin Egglesfield may have been evicted from "Melrose Place," but the sexy actor (he was one of our Hump Day Hotties!) has found a new place on the big screen. According to Variety, Colin has been cast as sweet, sensitive lawyer Dex Thaler who begins a whirlwind romance with his fiancee's best friend in the movie adaptation of Emily Giffin's bestseller "Something Borrowed."
Colin (who edged out other shortlisted actors like Peter Facinelli and Chris Pine) will join costars Ginnifer Goodwin (as plays Rachel, the woman he falls for) and John Krasinski (as Rachel's friend Ethan).
Only one other major player in the movie has yet to be cast, and that's the role of Dex's fiancee and Rachel's hard-to-handle BFF, Darcy. Actresses such as Elizabeth Banks, Malin Akerman and Kate Hudson have been considered to step into the party girl's shoes.
We don't say this often, but we think the casting for "Something Borrowed" has been pitch-perfect so far!
How about you, Crushers? Are you happy to see Colin Egglesfield play the man who wins Rachel's (and our) heart?
