Biggs, Caplan pad 'Bachelor'


Jason Biggs and Lizzy Caplan are diving into the dating game. The pair have joined the cast of the Dane Cook-Kate Hudson starrer "Bachelor No. 2" for Lionsgate.

The story centers on Tank (Cook), a master at seducing — and offending — women who is a professional Bachelor No. 2. When guys get dumped, they hire Tank to take their ex-girlfriends out on the worst date of their lives — an experience so horrible it sends them running gratefully back to their beaus. So when Tank's best friend, Dustin (Biggs), is dumped by his new girlfriend (Hudson), Tank naturally offers to help out and soon finds himself torn between his loyalty to Dustin and the desire to be Bachelor No. 1.

Caplan will play Ami, the roommate of Hudson's character.

Alec Baldwin already boarded the ensemble cast.

Howard Deutch is on board to direct from a Jordan Cahan screenplay. Shooting is under way in Boston.

Biggs, who is best known for starring in the "American Pie" films, most recently appeared in "Eight Below," "Guy X" and "Jersey Girl." He next co-stars in "How I Met My Boyfriend's Dead Fiance."

He is repped by CAA, Management 360 and attorney Steven Burkow.

Caplan, who is shooting J.J. Abrams' supersecret thriller "Cloverfield" for Paramount Pictures, is handled by the Gersh Agency and Artistry Entertainment.
