Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! script
Synopsis: Pete (Topher Grace), the quirky, self-deprecating manager of a grocery store, is madly in love with his best friend, Rosalee (Kate Bosworth). Unfortunately, she has absolutely no idea. When Rosalee wins a date with her favorite actor, the smarmy Tad Hamilton (Josh Duhamel), Pete delays admitting his feelings to her. And when the scheming Hamilton relocates to their small town to pursue Rosalee in the wake of their initial meeting, a horrified Pete must struggle to win her heart.

And now for all you romantics

out there, this one is for you.

Hello, Betty.

Shouldn't you be at the hospital,

looking after a certain other soldier?

Is there any way you can find it

in your heart to forgive me?

I wonder if these two get together.

I'll forgive you on one condition.

- What's that?

- Dance with me.

Explain one thing to me.

What kind of desperate and pathetic

emotional cripple

would actually buy that as an ending?

Rosie, do you think that in real life

Tad Hamilton is the man

he seems to be on the screen?

Absolutely. I mean,

you just can't fake that kind of thing.

What do you think Tad Hamilton

is doing right now?

I'll bet he's in church.

Watch this.

Yeah! Whoo!

- Told you that was him, right?

- Yeah.

Tad Hamilton.

You don't make it easy on us, Tad.

What do you mean?

This is the shot the paparazzi got.

Congratulations. You're actually

drinking, driving, smoking,

leering and groping at the same time.

Which, on the one hand, is just about

the coolest thing "ve ever seen.

Richard.

But, on the other hand, it can be argued

this might be bad for the image.

You play characters who have heart.

This is a person

who will have a heart attack.

I can't believe you guys are blaming

my unemployment on this photograph.

You are not unemployed.

Dockworkers are unemployed.

You are simply between

million-dollar paydays.

As are we, since we both get

a percentage of your payday.

But this isn't about us.

Whatever happened to that part in the

Jimmy lng movie? I´m perfect for that.

Well, he's taking a breath.

- He's what?

- He's taking a breath.

He's pausing before deciding.

He's hemming and hawing

and taking a breath.

And this is only going

to make him breathe more.

- What do we do?

- Asphyxiate the son of a bitch.

- We generate a little positive PR.

- What are you, an interpreter?

I'm saying we just need

to do something, Tad,

to remind Jimmy lng and America

that you are the boy next door.

I am the boy next door,

if you happen to live

in a very dysfunctional neighborhood.

Congratulations. You've eaten

your body weight in Pringles.

What's your favorite Pringle?

Sour cream and onion or original?
