David Sutcliffe

'I'm with Her'

In the new ABC sitcom “I’m With Her,” David Sutfcliffe plays the shy, everyman boyfriend of a movie star.

Having only briefly tasted the spotlight himself — he starred in the short-lived skeins “Grapevine” on CBS and NBC’s couples comedy “Cold Feet” — Sutcliffe says he’s used to the anonymity.

“They made a big fuss over me a couple of years ago with ‘Cold Feet.’ And then I went away,” he says.

Bright lights may be approaching once again, however, as the 34-year-old Canadian recently clocked some bigscreen time — Sutcliffe plays Diane Lane’s Prince Charming in the upcoming Disney feature “Under the Tuscan Sun,” which opens Sept. 26.

“I was a little disappointed,” he says. “Originally, I was going to get to make out with her but in the rewrites it was cut.”

He’ll have to settle for getting intimate with Teri Polo, who plays the A-list celeb on “I’m With Her.” Not a bad trade off, indeed.

Thesp also stars in the indie film “Clean Cut,” from director David Moreton (“Edge of Seventeen”). Sutcliffe’s even got fans-in-waiting, having played Rory’s aw-shucks, come-and-go dad on the WB’s “The Gilmore Girls.”
