Weâ€™ve reported on the progress of the Katherine Heigl starring pic Life as We Know It. We reported a few weeks ago, that â€śMad Menâ€ť star Christina Hendricks joined the cast of the film. Now, Variety reports that Josh Lucas has joined the cast of the film as well.
The film’s plot â€śfollows two unattached adults whose worlds are turned upside down when their mutual best friends die in an accident and name them as caregivers of their orphaned daughter.â€ť
It hasnâ€™t been said what role Lucas will play but, itâ€™s safe to assume that Hendricks and Lucas will play the mutual best friends to Duhamel and Heigl. If only in a perfect world the roles would be reversed, as I find Christina Hendricks and Josh Lucas infinitely more watchable than Heigl and Mr. Fergie. Lucas is no stranger to chick flicks as he starred in Sweet Home Alabama. I think Lucas is underrated and looking through his filmography, he has turned in quite a few notable performances in films like American Psycho and Undertow.Â What do you make of Lucasâ€™s casting in the film? And do we all agree that he resembles a young Paul Newman in the thumbnail pic to this post?
