matthew.jpgWe know that funny actress Anna Faris is set to be in Massachusetts later this spring to shoot the romantic comedy "What's Your Number?," based on Karyn Bosnak's book about exes, "20 Times a Lady." What we don’t know for sure is which men will be joining Faris for the filming.

It has been reported in Hollywood trades over the past week that "Saturday Night Live" guy Andy Samberg, "White Collar" star Matthew Bomer (left), and Zachary Quinto of "Star Trek" are all in talks to appear in "Number" as Faris’s character’s many suitors and past loves.

Frankly, we'd be happy if any of those guys were in town, even for just a few days. Sudbury-native Chris Evans — who was recently cast in the new "Captain America" — has already been tapped for the role of Faris's naughty neighbor.
