Is Tom Sturridge following in the footsteps of his bud Robert Pattinson as a romantic leading man? We just saw Pattinson in the trailer for Water For Elephants, but now Sturridge steps up his game in this preview for Waiting For Forever. Sturridge stars as Will, a dreamer type who's still pining after the neighborhood girl from his childhood (Rachel Bilson). When they see each other years later, his feelings are still alive and well, but hers — not so much. In fact, she's engaged to another guy (Matt Davis of The Vampire Diaries!).
The cast of this is actually pretty good (Blythe Danner and Richard Jenkins have supporting roles), but I can't get beyond Will's hat-and-earring combo and what appear to be pajamas. Is it just me, or does he have a whole Pretty in Pink Duckie vibe going on? Also, his advances come across as a little creepy. Word to Will: just let it go, dude. Watch the trailer after the jump.
