Adrian Grenier and Amy Smart are setting out to make something Worthwhile.
The Entourage alum and Varsity Blues vet have signed on to star in the Hallmark Channel movie A Worthwhile Life, EW has learned.
Grenier and Smart will play James and Mary, a pair of strangers who cross paths on the subway in New York City. Freshly dumped by her fiancé for not being adventurous enough, she makes promising eye contact with a handsome and seemingly daring stranger, who accidentally leaves his cell phone behind when exiting the train. Mary then embarks on a colorful journey to track down James, but never finds him and is left to wander aimlessly around the city for the rest of her years. Wait a sec — that doesn’t sound right. Ah, yes, here’s the logline: “In the process she realizes that she may not be so different from the intriguing man that altered her path after all.”
Grenier starred as Vincent Chase on HBO’s Entourage from 2004 to 2011, reprising the role on in the Entourage movie last year. He also appeared this year in the indie films Trash Fire and Marauders. Smart has made guest appearances in recent years on such shows as include Maron, Justified, and Shameless. She is also known for the movies The Single Moms Club and Road Trip.
A Worthwhile Life, which begins production this month, is slated to air in early 2017.
