Now comes the news that he’ll star in Flypaper, an action comedy indie penned by The Hangover scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. According to Variety, the script “tells the tale of a bank that is robbed by two different groups of crooks at the same time. However, they both come under attack by a secret enemy (Dempsey), to save the bank teller whom he loves.” Assuming this has Hangover-style humor, this could be the most raucous thing Dempsey’s done since 1989’s Loverboy. It feels somehow fitting that he’s breaking out of his recent Prince Charming mold in a movie to be directed by Rob Minkoff, who’s also looking to stretch. (His credits include The Lion King, Stuart Little, The Haunted Mansion, and The Forbidden Kingdom.) Good luck, gentlemen. Go forward and get a little dirty.

Is the idea of Patrick Dempsey + the Hangover scribes making anyone else nostalgic? Are you ready to see him as more than a mainstream Mr. Right?
