'One Life to Live's' Scott Evans lands role in gay indie flick 'The One'

According to AfterElton, Evans' new film is described as "a quick-witted, tender romantic dramedy about a young, successful Manhattan investment banker who lives the charmed Upper East Side Manhattan life about to marry the woman of his dreams who, a month before his wedding, meets and unexpectedly falls in love with a charismatic man from his past."

His love interest will be played by super-hot Jon Prescott, who has appeared on "One Life to Live" as Chad, and as Mike on "As the World Turns." The couple will have three love scenes in the film.

Openly gay Scott isn't the only Evans working on a film this summer. His brother, Chris Evans, will play Captain America in the highly anticipated Marvel movie, set to hit theaters July 22, 2011.

We're glad Scott is getting back in front of the camera. Claywell seems to be enjoying his time off, judging by his Twitter. " Improvised jam session with the congos, a bike ride in santa monica, some sun and some volleyball, and the drum circle. Happy sunday!!" he wrote on May 30.
