In theaters Friday, The Lucky One casts Zac as U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault, who credits a photograph he found of a woman he doesn't even know as the one thing that's kept him alive. When he returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, Logan locates the woman – Beth (played by Taylor) – and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.
