Ran into James Marsden in the catering tent on the set of The Best of Me Movie today! He's playing Dawson in the film.
Further expanding his producing efforts, Nicholas Sparks will be bringing the true story of sports heroes Gale Sayers and Brian Piccolo to the big screen! Nicholas and his producing partner, Theresa Park, have acquired the rights to Sayers' memoirs "I Am Third" and "Sayers: My Life And Times" and will partner with Michael Costigan to give life to the iconic story of friendship.

Every year for Valentine’s Day, I write a letter to my wife, Cathy, to articulate all of the many things that I love about her. As you might guess, those letters can get quite lengthy. It’s a tradition that’s important, not just because I want Cathy to know how much I appreciate her, but also because it’s a chance to take time out of my busy life and reflect on the many lucky years we’ve already spent together. This year, after spending time with Cathy and the kids, I’ll be heading off to Patagonia this weekend with a longtime friend.
It’s a change of pace from last year’s Valentine’s Day, which saw the release of Safe Haven. Though I don’t have a film out this February, there is a new DVD collection: the Nicholas Sparks Limited Edition Collection, which compiles Safe Haven, The Lucky One, Dear John, Nights in Rodanthe, The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, and Message In A Bottle into what is, I think, a beautiful package. You can buy it in stores or online now.
I hope that you’ll have a Happy Valentine’s Day this year! Whatever your plans might be, and whomever you might spend it with, I hope you’ll remember to celebrate all of your loved-ones—friends, family, and significant others included.
