Some casting news for today centers on the a tale of two Josh’s. According to Variety, Josh Lucas has signed on to co-star in the film, Life As We Know It.The actor will join Katherine Heigl, Transformers star Josh Duhamel, and Mad Men alum Christina Hendricks.
Life As We Know it centers on two single adults whose lives are dramatically changed when their mutual best friends are killed in an accident and name them as the guardians of their daughter. If that’s not depressing, I don’t know what is. There isn’t any real room for romance in this film, or is it? Josh Lucas’ role hasn’t been specified so we’re not sure how he’s going to fit into the story.
There hasn’t been a real clarification about whether or not this will be a romantic comedy or a dramedy. On the surface it looks like it’s a step away from the rom-coms that Heigl has been submersing herself in as of late. But on the other hand, we have two leading men cast alongside her. Unless they hired Lucas to play one of the dead parents, I don’t see how this won’t turn into some love story brought about by tragedy.
