Now, Speedman is in talks to join Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum in romantic drama 'The Vow.'

According to the Hollywood Reporter, 'The Vow' relays the true story of a newlywed couple (McAdams and Tatum) who survive a car crash but struggle to keep their marriage intact after the wife wakes up from a coma without any memory of her husband.

The husband, who cared for her night and day after the wreck, has to try and win her heart all over again.

Speedman is eying the role of the wife's ex-fiancé, who complicates things by rekindling their romance after the accident.

Michael Sucsy (HBO's 'Grey Gardens') is directing the Spyglass/Screen Gems project, which starts shooting in September in Toronto.

Speedman's other upcoming films include the tense-looking thriller 'Good Neighbours' and the quirky western 'The Last Rites of Ransom Pride.'
