The pair star in the romantic comedy “The Good Guy,” which is in production in New York.

Porter plays Tommy, a rising Wall Street star in a budding romance with a new girlfriend, Beth (Bledel). He begins mentoring a seemingly hapless new salesman (Bryan Greenberg) who befriends Beth, starting a chain of events that might ultimately lead to his downfall.

Andrew McCarthy plays Tommy’s vicious boss, Aaron Yoo his crass co-worker, and Anna Chlumsky Beth’s unlucky-in-love friend. The project marks the writing and directing debut of Julio DePietro, who based the story partly on his experience as a partner at a hedge fund.

Porter most recently appeared in “Speed Racer,” while Bledel returns to theaters next month in “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.”
