So I guess I can share this since it's being reported everywhere: Matt Bomer and Ari Graynor are in negotiations to be in "What's Your Number?"!
Matt Bomer currently stars in "White Collar" on USA Network. I've watched the show a few times and, I must say, he's a very good actor and DREAMY. In fact, he's so dreamy that People magazine named him the "Sexiest Rising Star" of 2009. (Note to self: Write twenty hot men into the next book, too, so when/if movie gets made, twenty hot men will be cast.) Here's a photo:
And here's a video of him on Regis & Kelly:
As for Ari Graynor, you probably remember her from "Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist," as she pretty much stole every scene she was in because she's so. damn. funny. Here's a pic:
And here's a video that shows a hilarious scene from "Nick & Norah":
Ari is playing Anna Faris' sister, Daisy. And Matt is playing the part that's based on Nate in the book. (The character in the movie is a bit different and he has a different name. But, if you read the book, he's pretty much Nate.)
Anyway, this is all so exciting! You know, I hear things about casting but can't really say anything until it's officially announced. And when something is going to be officially announced, no one really calls me to say, "There's going to be an article in tomorrow's Hollywood Reporter." I just wait and wait and wait and try to keep a secret WHICH IS SO DAMN HARD, and then when I finally get a Google Alert telling me something's been announced, I breathe a sigh of relief because I can finally start blabbing.
So anyway, thoughts?
