ET breaks the news that "Moonlight" actor Alex O'Loughlin has been cast to star opposite Jennifer Lopez in CBS Films' feature 'The Back-Up Plan.'
The romantic comedy features Lopez as Zoe -- a woman who embarks on a journey to motherhood using artificial insemination, only to meet a possible Mr. Right named Stan (O'Loughlin) on the day of her insemination.
The couple begins dating, with Zoe confusing their early relationship by hiding her pregnancy. After she reveals her secret, Stan unexpectedly sticks by her side. But as the birth approaches, the pressures of their new relationship and her impending motherhood could split them apart.
'The Back-Up Plan,' is the first feature from CBS Films and will be directed by "Six Feet Under"'s Alan Poul. The movie is set to begin filming in Los Angeles in May and will premiere in theaters in January 2010.
You can also catch O'Loughlin in upcoming films 'Whiteout' and 'August Rush.'
