Actor Josh Duhamel is probably better known for his striking good looks that have gotten him cast in many studio romances, both comedies and dramas, but in recent years, he’s been doing smaller independent films like Scenic Route with Dan Fogler.
That’s also the case with Lost in the Sun, the first theatrical feature by Trey Nelson, who cast Duhamel in the role of John, a small-time crook and grifter who owes a lot of money to men who protected him while in jail. When he encounters an orphaned teenager named Louis (Josh Wiggins from Max), who just happens to be carrying a lot of cash, John pairs with the boy on a trip across the country to go live with his grandmother, roping him into his petty thefts at the same time.
ComingSoon.net got on the phone with Duhamel last week to talk about the movie.
ComingSoon.net: This movie was kind of a surprise because it didn’t play festivals and I’d really never heard of it before, so it kind of came out of nowhere. It’s fun to see a movie that you’ve never heard of just being really enjoyable and pleasant.
Josh Duhamel: Well, I appreciate that, so that’s what we’re trying to do is get people aware of it, because these small movies, they’re passion projects. They take effort from every single person on the crew, from the cast and even afterwards, you have to try to get the word out because we don’t have the means that some of these bigger movies do, so you just hope that you can make a good movie that people can engage in.

Downtown Fargo and the Fargo Theatre were the backdrop Sunday for a film shoot featuring movie star and Minot, N.D., native Josh Duhamel.
Rocking a crisp white shirt and dark suit and tie, Duhamel walked through a medley of settings showcasing what North Dakota has to offer, including fine dining, world-class sports teams and the actual wood chipper from the cult movie hit “Fargo.”
“Something new and fun around every corner,” Duhamel said as he delivered his lines that are part of the latest creative campaign for North Dakota tourism.
Print, TV and multimedia spots based on Sunday’s shoot and other production efforts will begin running early in 2016.
“The whole shoot is a week long,” said Sara Otte Coleman, North Dakota’s tourism director.
She added the shoot will wrap up about Wednesday.
As a major part of the campaign, Duhamel has been filmed in a number of locations around the state, according to Otte Coleman, who added it’s not the actor’s first involvement with North Dakota tourism.

He’ll have a regular role in the miniseries starring James Franco.
Hulu’s 11/22/63 continues to add to its impressive cast.
Battle Creek alum Josh Duhamel has joined the cast of the Hulu miniseries from J.J. Abrams and Stephen King, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Based on King’s best-seller, 11/22/63 is described as a thriller in which high school English teacher Jake Epping (James Franco) travels back in time to prevent the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. But his mission is threatened by Lee Harvey Oswald (played by Daniel Webber), falling in love and the past itself … which doesn’t want to be changed.
Duhamel will play Frank Dunning, the father of Jake’s student Harry Dunning (played by youngster Jack Fulton and Leon Rippy), in 1960s Kentucky. Frank is the rakish town butcher, a ladies’ man with an effortless smile that everyone welcomes — except Jake, the only man who knows the full violence of which Frank is capable.
Just a small update here to let you know that almost 600 HQ photos of Josh Duhamel from 2014 have been added to the gallery. Some albums have been updated and some are news. Enjoy!
