James Marsden is the leading man who never was. With all the trimmings of an ideal Hollywood hero, he just never quite landed the right roles. Always portraying the sweet and caring gentleman, Marsden has pigeonholed himself away from the man's man roles that define a Hollywood James Bond or Indiana Jones.
Even as the protagonist in the creepy, unneeded remake "Straw Dogs," starring alongside Kate Bosworth, he falls behind the sweaty chest and raw testosterone of costar Alexander Skarsgard. But we still believe in Marsden's potential and hope this summer's "Bachelorette," costarring Kirsten Dunst, will launch him into newfound heartthrob status.
