Anne Hathaway has come a long way from the young woman with grotesque fake eyebrows in The Princess Diaries. As of today, however, Anne can start preparing for her latest role (Smug Married #5), seeing as how she’s officially engaged to her beau of three years Adam Shulman. But who is Mr.Â Shulman, anyway, in addition to being a total babe and confident enough in his masculinity to date a literal supervillian? Learn a little more about the man who Hathaway will have extremely pale, charismatic babies with (we hope!):
- Has starred in a Dukes Of Hazzard movie: Bestowing upon him the honor of co-starring alongside Mr. Willie Nelson, Adam’s most prominent acting role (of the, um, four he’s done) would be Deputy Enos Strate in the TV movie The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning. Adam and Anne didn’t start dating until 2008, so this was clearly not the work of nepotism. Clearly.
- Has worked with Brittany Snow: As well as his episode turn on The West Wing in 2006 (we’re sure he killed it as Youth Voter #1), Adam had a seven episode run guest starring as Paul O’Bannon on the period family drama American Dreams, which was set in the tumultuous ’60s, back in 2005. He pre-Mad Men‘ed Mad Men!
- Makes jewelry!: Earlier this year Adam started a jewelry line James Banks Design with partner Heidi Nahser Fink; their pieces appear to be delightfully light bulb- and butterfly-centric. Shockingly, Anne’s engagement ring was designed by Kwiat Heritage, her rep says, though maybe Adam’s planning to blow her away with a butterfly-light bulb masterpiece at the ceremony.
- May have gotten up to some low-level thievery: Shulman got into trouble last year after he and some friends swiped a piece of street art pained by graffiti artist Mr. Brainwash in NYC. After Hathaway’s ex Raffaello Follieri, though, anything short of a felony must seem ring-worthy. What with all the swindling investors and whatnot.
- Saw Hathaway’s Oscar hosting gig and loves her anyway: Is there any greater act of love than that? Hey, don’t cry, James Franco. One day. One day.
