James Marsden Offered Paul Walker's Role in 'Best of Me' Film

James Marsden has been offered the lead role in the upcoming film The Best of Me and will replace the late Paul Walker if he accepts the part, according to Deadline.

The film is based on Nicholas Sparks‘ book of the same named and follows “two former high school sweethearts reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of the beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the sparks, but the forces that drove them apart back then still get in the way.”

Michelle Monaghan will be playing the female lead and it came down to James and Joe Manganiello for the male lead after the studio went to search for a replacement.
