Josh Duhamel could very well be the nicest person in Hollywood. Onscreen and off he’s always charming and approachable, so seeing him in his latest role will be quite a surprise. His movie Scenic Route might sound like another romcom, yet it’s anything but!
The film is about two buddies on a road trip. They get stranded in the desert after their truck breaks down. With no food or water, it becomes a violent and bloody test of survival.
“They get pretty vicious with each other,”; Josh tells ET Canada while promoting the film at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. “It becomes a real life or death situation.”;
He says the dark material really drew him in: “I think I needed to do something like this, to kind of shake it up, because I’d never really been that daring.”;
In the movie Josh also shows off a daring new “do – a Mohawk! “It was something I had always wanted to do and what better opportunity than to do it for a movie,”; he reveals.
And lucky for Josh, his rock star wife Fergie loved his look! “I wasn’t sure what she was going to make of it but I tell you man, she loved it… I got laid that night, put it that way,”; Josh laughs.
Well, no big surprise, the couple is expecting their first child! But Josh admits Scenic Route won’t be priority viewing for any Duhamel children: “No ,this will not be the first film that my kids see me in.”;
Now that he’s going to become a dad Josh says he’ll consider how his career choices can impact his family: “I think I’ll always keep in mind the things that I choose will have some sort of a bearing on my kids, but I’ll also make sure that they understand that this isn’t real life. These are just characters that I’m playing.”;
