"White Collar" star eyes role in Anna Faris film

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Matt Bomer, star of USA’s “White Collar,” and Ari Graynor are in negotiations to join Anna Faris in the romantic comedy “What’s Your Number?”

Faris’ central character treks through her sexual past to find Mr. Right, exploring the idea of sexual quotas and whether such numbers matter.

Bomer will portray Faris’ dream guy, and Graynor will play her sister, whose wedding serves as a backdrop to much of the proceedings. The movie also counts Chris Evans in its cast, and the filmmakers are hoping to populate the cast with high-profile cameos.

Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan wrote the script based on Karyn Bosnak’s book. Mark Mylod is directing the film for New Regency.

Bomer began his career in TV before segueing to features with such pictures as “Flightplan” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.” He boomeranged back to TV, starring in ABC thriller “Traveler” and appearing on NBC’s “Chuck” before his star-making turn on “Collar.” “Number” is his first feature since 2006’s “Chainsaw.”

Graynor, who drew attention in “Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist,” most recently was seen in Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut, “Whip It,” and next appears in “Betty Anne Waters” with Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell.
