Taylor Schilling, the star of the recent television series Mercy has just been cast to play Zac Efron‘s love interest in the upcoming movie Lucky One. The movie will begin filming shortly, and is based off of Nicholas Sparks‘ book.
The book tells of a Marine (Efron) who’s survived three tours of duty in Iraq and attributes his good luck to a photograph he carried of a woman (Schilling) he doesn’t even know. When he returns to the States, he sets out to find her.
Taylor reportedly beat out lots of young hollywood actresses, including Melrose Place beauty Katie Cassidy.
