Elisha Cuthbert by Kevin Parry/WireImage.com and Will Kemp by Jun Sato/WireImage.com
Elisha Cuthbert's across-the-pond amoré has been cast, and I'm reckoning he might just be worth the long lines at airport security. Will Kemp, whose credits include playing the Werewolf in Van Helsing, has landed the male lead in NY-LON, the CBS pilot about a New York City woman and a London stock broker trying to make a bi-continental romance work.

I liked this IMDb tidbit about the U.K.-born Kemp: While performing with Matthew Bourne's dance company, he was likened to "the James Dean of ballet" by "smitten" Paramount boss Sherry Lansing. He also apparently shook what his momma gave him in a GAP ad campaign. - MWM
