JOSH DUHAMEL, star of Transformers and the recent romance Safe Haven, is joining Maria Bello and Lucas Till in the cast of Strings in the role of a psychotherapist. The film is scheduled to commence shooting in Winnipeg on June 9.
Till plays a New York DJ obliged to spend time with his father in a small town in North Dakota. Duhamel, 40, could provide some regional veracity there, as he was born in Minot, N.D.
Duhamel is expecting his first child with Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie (Stacy Ferguson).
