Darren Mann stars as Jack Dutton, and Michelle Randolph performs his soon-to-be spouse Elizabeth Stafford. HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with Darren and Michelle about Jack and Elizabeth’s “candy” and “harmless” relationship.

When Elizabeth marries Jack, she’ll be part of the Dutton household. Whereas Elizabeth grew up in Montana, she’s by no means been the spouse of a rancher. “Her dad is a rancher, so I feel she’s conscious of what the lifestyle is.

Darren admitted that what’s “really fairly cool about doing it within the 20s is that we don’t have all these exterior influences, proper? In order that they actually may be that pure at 25. Effectively, I’m 25… Whereas these days, by the point children are no matter, there’s web, TV, all that, so it’s fairly cool to play a interval piece like this.”
