Ugly Betty star Christopher Gorham is joining Liv Tyler in The Ledge.
The 35-year-old actor - who played Betty's love interest Henry in the hit TV show - joins Liv, Terrence Howard, Charlie Hunnam and The Watchmen's Patrick Wilson in the new movie from first-time writer-director Matthew Chapman, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film has just begun shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The Ledge is a suspense drama about a young man (Hunnam) perched on a high-rise ledge, who insists he must jump. He reveals to the cop (Howard) trying to dissuade him from jumping that he doesn't really want to, but just "has to".
Gorham will play the man's roommate, a television editor.
Chapman said: "The Ledge examines the different and sometimes dangerous beliefs people adopt as a means of surviving emotional trauma."
Gorham appears in the upcoming films My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, Trivial Pursuits and Somebody's Hero.
He also stars opposite Piper Perabo in the US series Covert Affairs, which premieres during the summer.
