Dave Annable eyes role in Anna Faris film


Dave Annable, who stars on ABC's "Brothers and Sisters," is in negotiations to join "What's Your Number?" the Anna Faris romantic comedy at New Regency.

Mark Mylod is directing "Number," which is being produced by Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of Contrafilm.

"Number" centers on a woman (Faris) who treks through her sexual past to find Mr. Right, exploring the idea of sexual quotas and whether such numbers matter. Jennifer Crittenden and Gabrielle Allan wrote the script based on Karyn Bosnak's book.

Annable steps into the shoes initially worn by Matt Bomer, who dropped out because of a scheduling conflict with his hit USA show "White Collar." Annable will play Faris' dream guy.

Among the actors lined up as Faris' exes are Chris Evans, Zachary Quinto and Joel McHale.

Annable, repped by CAA and manager Sue Leibman, has been in working in TV for the several years, also starring in Fox's "Reunion" before "Brothers." "Number" is his first movie since 2004's "Little Black Book."
