Jesse Metcalfe Rom-Com Actually Sounds Really Cute

I have to say, this sounds pretty adorable: Jesse Metcalfe is set to star in a cross-cultural romantic comedy titled The Other End of the Line. The movie follows "an Indian call-center operative who travels to San Francisco to be with a man she has only met over the phone." No word yet on Metcalfe's leading lady.

Producer Ashok Amritraj and his company Hyde Park Entertainment have greenlit the project with high hopes for Hollywood-Asian relations:

"This project was an organic opportunity for my mandate of identifying new and innovative ways to continually bridge the U.S. with the Asian continent and its multiple film markets," Amritraj said. "This high-concept unique story offered Hyde Park a great entertainment platform to increase Hyde Park's foot-print in Asia."

I like Metcalfe okay, but moreover I'm digging the idea of a romantic comedy that's not entirely vanilla with a dash of non-white-best-friends. There are plenty of those in the world — let's get some flavor out there.

He gives me a weird vibe. Too super pretty frat boy for my taste.

I wish they'd pick me to be the female lead... granted I have no acting experience, but I'm Indian, so that counts for something, right? Right?? And yeah.. I think he's hot, but there's something innately douchebag-y about him. And he over-plucks his eyebrows too. So yeah. Still hot though.

He is a little effeminate for some reason. Maybe he's too much of a pretty boy. Perhaps that is what she means by creepy???

Not these days - look at Eva Longoria and Kelly Ripa. Not a Jesse Metcalf fan though. He creeps me out.

I remember when he started out on the soap opera Passions. I think it's funny that he's a movie star now since it's so rare for soap stars to go on to bigger things.
