Paul Bettany and a show about sex?!
Yes and YES!
The British actor has reportedly signed on to star in the new Showtimes drama, Masters of Sex, which focuses on the celebrated research team studying human sexuality comprised of William H. Masters and Virginia E. Johnson, and was adapted from a book by Thomas Maier!
Bettany will portray the aforementioned male lead.
Definitely sounds like it's worth checking out, eye-candy aside!
We hope the pilot gets picked up for series! How about U?
