Now that Zac Efron has taken a turn making you alternate between swooning and crying in the latest Nicholas Sparks movie adaptation “The Lucky One,” it’s only fair another impossibly handsome, sculpted actor takes a turn. Lucky for people with eyes who appreciate beauty, Josh Duhamel is the chosen one.
Duhamel will romance Julianne Hough in “Safe Haven,” reports HitFix. Hough will play a woman who moves to a small North Carolina town and falls in love with a widower with two small children (Duhamel). Undoubtedly they will discover more creative ways to make out outdoors or in the rain, as in every other Sparks adaptation.

“I’m thrilled that Josh and Julianne have agreed to come aboard ‘Safe Haven’ — it’s hard to think of an actor better-suited to play the character of Alex than Josh, and Julianne will bring a combination of vulnerability and strength to the role of Katie. They are both such talented and charismatic individuals — and best of all, they have tremendous personal chemistry, which is essential for this film,” says Sparks in a statement.
The movie will start filming in Southport, North Carolina in June with Lasse Hallstr�m as director.
