Jesse’s been linked to a few girls in his time.The 33-year-old actor once dated Courtney Robertson. The model is now trying to win over Ben Flajnik on The Bachelor. So who is Cara? All we know is she’s an aspiring actress from Texas who’s going to marry Wisteria Lane’s hunky pool boy.
Mr Metcalfe will be back on our TV screens in a different role this year. He’s in the 21st century reboot of Dallas. He plays Christopher Ewing in the telemovie. Christopher is the adopted son of Bobby Ewing. Expect to see the movie during the summer.
It’s great to see Jesse happy in both his personal and professional life. A couple of years back it was a different story. In March 2007 he checked into rehab. The star of John Tucker Must Die was treated for alcohol issues. His Rep saying he wanted to deal with the problem and put it behind him.
Jesse is the latest in a string of celebrity engagements. We’ve had long time bachelor Matthew McConaughey, Michael Jordan, John Legend and singer Steven Tyler asking their loved ones for their hand in marriage. And who can forget Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. They finally took the next step after several years together. All these engagements mean we’ll have some gorgeous wedding photos to look forward to this year.
