Mentalist star Baker joins romcom

Simon Baker is to star in a new romantic comedy during his upcoming hiatus from TV show The Mentalist.

The Australian actor - who has been winning fans as crime consultant Patrick Jane on the US TV show since 2008 - will use his break to shoot I Give It A Year, reports Variety.

The movie also stars Rafe Spall, who will be seen later this year in Ridley Scott's Prometheus.

I Give It A Year centres on "the comedic trials and tribulations of a pair of newlyweds during their first year as a married couple" but so far it isn't known which roles Baker and Spall will play.

Baker was last on the big screen in 2011 drama Margin Call and his other movie credits include The Devil Wears Prada, LA Confidential and The Lodger.
