It's a good week to get into the Josh Gad business.

GoDigital, a leading video on demand and home entertainment distributor, announced on Tuesday that they had acquired the US digital distribution rights to the romantic dramedy She Wants Me, in which Gad, who also just had his NBC show 1600 Penn picked up for series, stars.

In the film, which was directed by Rob Margolies and produced by Charlie Sheen (who cameos) and Jeremy Schott, Gad plays Sam, a budding screenwriter who writes a film in which he asks his gorgeous girlfriend Sammy (Kristin Ruhlin) to star. That plan hits a bump in the road with the development that superstar actress Kim Powers (Hilary Duff) has read and loves the script and wants the part. It's an ironic twist that puts Sam in a tough position, which is not at all helped by Sammy's ex-husband crashing on their couch.

The film goes straight to cable and digital outlets on September 18.
