"When it came time to casting Stan, the filmmakers set out to find a fresh face – someone sexy, funny, strong, yet also vulnerable. It was going to be a challenge to find someone who had the whole package but when they met Aussie actor Alex O’Loughlin, they knew they had found their Stan.
“The minute we had him read with Jennifer, you could just feel it in the room – their chemistry was undeniable,” says producer Todd Black. “Alex also came in very prepared. He understood where the comedy was and he wasn’t afraid to take it as far as it could go. It’s so thrilling as a producer to discover someone new. I’m proud and excited. I can’t wait to watch where his career goes; I think he’s going to be a major movie star.”
O’Loughlin cherished his first turn as a feature leading man. “The cast and crew were amazing and the material is really good. Plus, starring opposite Jennifer was awesome. I had a ball.”
