A couple more join 'Single Man' group


Ginnifer Goodwin and Nicholas Hoult are about to make Tom Ford less of "A Single Man."

The pair join Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Matthew Goode in Ford's directorial debut, an adaptation of Christopher Isherwood's 1964 novel.

Goodwin is Mrs. Strunk, a suburban mom who doesn't share her husband's dislike of their neighbor, a gay professor (Firth). Hoult will play Kenny, a sexually ambiguous grad student who shows an unusual interest in the professor.

Best known as Hugh Grant's young co-star in "About a Boy," the UTA/Independent-repped Hoult re-emerged as a star overseas on BBC America's hit U.K. series "Skins."

"Big Love" star Goodwin, repped by WMA and John Carrabino Management, next appears in the ensemble romantic comedy "He's Just Not That Into You."

Ford adapted the screenplay with David Scearce. His company, Fade to Black Prods., is producing along with Depth of Field duo Chris Weitz and Andrew Miano and Artina Films' Robert Salerno. Principal photography begins this week in Los Angeles.

IM Global is handling foreign sales on the indie financed, CAA-packaged film. (partialdiff)
