First off, you should all know that I was extremely excited to meet and interview James Marsden. But really, HOW LUCKY AM I? I was able to sit and chat with one of my favorite actors, JAMES MARSDEN (hold your squealing in)!!!!!!!!! (Excessive exclamation points are necessary.) That’s right, the man behind our Cyclops fantasies and that soldier who stole our hearts in The Notebook is sneaking his way back into our hearts by playing the all- aorund good guy next door, Dawson in his new film, The Best of Me.
He stars alongside the gorgeous Michelle Monaghan (Eagle Eye, Source Code, Due Date) in the newest film based on Nicholas Sparks’ bestselling novel. Check out the interview below, where we talk about how James got the role of Dawson, what advice he would give to his younger self, and what he would be doing if he wasn’t an actor! Take a look.
