About a Boy Star David Walton Interview | Video

Meet the Guy Filling Hugh Grant's Shoes in the New About a Boy

David Walton might deny that he shares Hugh Grant's "bumbling charm," but the actor has a brand of charisma all his own. His comedic timing and, admittedly, his good looks made him a standout on 2012's short-lived but critically lauded series Bent and also earned him admirers as a love interest to Zooey Deschanel's character on New Girl. Now, he's poised to reinvent one of Grant's beloved characters with NBC's sitcom About a Boy, based on the novel and film by the same name and debuting Saturday night after the Olympics. David stopped by our LA studio to talk about why the series will spell a departure from the movie it's based on, his character's romantic future with Minnie Driver's, and the challenges of playing a responsibility-dodging single guy when, in reality, he's a much more stable father of two.
