Dean Cain movie alert

Dean Cain fans, Saturday Dec. 16 is an early Christmas for you. First, Cain tackles the role of arrogant, workaholic boss Tucker, who seems destined to foil the wedding of Emily (Sarah Paulson) and Ben (Eric Mabius) in the Lifetime movie A Christmas Wedding. The movie airs at 7 p.m. EST.

Tucker isn’t the only one reeking havoc on the couple’s big day. Think Planes, Trains and Automobiles, as Emily tries to make it home in time for her wedding, encountering every transportation disaster known to man.

Cain plays a bad guy in this film, but he’s not malevolent bad. He’s fun bad. Tucker likes to golf, drink and eye the ladies, and he’s the best part of this syrupy sweet holiday love fest. Fans of Ugly Betty and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip will enjoy Mabius and Paulson, but Cain steals the show.

For more on the film, including a fun interview with the cast (including Cain,) visit the Lifetime Web site page for A Christmas Wedding and click the link for On the Set Videos.

For diehard Cain fans, the Sci-Fi channel is offering the world premiere of Dead and Deader, also showing on Saturday, Dec. 16. The movie airs at 9 p.m. EST.

Cain plays an Army lieutenant on a jungle rescue mission. He ends up battling zombies, and becomes half zombie himself. His mission is to stop a crop of beetles that is turning the population into zombies. I haven’t seen it yet, so I can’t weigh in on this piece of film, and that’s probably a good thing. But hey, it's the holiday season, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

I’d pretty much watch Cain in anything, so I’ll take what I can get. But, can someone please give this guy some work on network TV? Wisteria Lane or Seattle Grace could always use another hottie.
