In his major film debut, “Something Borrowed,” he is engaged to Kate Hudson, and also shows his affection for Ginnifer Goodwin.
He is torn between two lovers, but handles both with natural charm.
To earn money for medical school, Egglesfield turned to modeling.
He won a contest (he entered at the urging of a friend), and soon after, he left medicine behind for a modeling career.
He owns and runs his own New York City-based clothing company Shout Out Clothing!
, which he principally uses as a vehicle to promote and support educational initiatives such as Project Grad, and also "Stay in school" programs.
Colin Egglesfield was in Chicago last Friday, on the day of his big debut.
He sat down for an interview with Hollywood to talk about his film, co-stars and career path.
After going through the pre-med program at the University of Iowa, he turned to modeling to earn money for medical school, and ended up doing it full time.
He has two siblings: an older sister, Kerry, and a younger brother, Sean. Egglesfield spent his early childhood in the Metro Detroit area.
At the age of ten, he and his family moved to Morris, Illinois, a small community south of Chicago.
Growing up, he was more studious than rambunctious, preferring to spend Friday nights alone building model airplanes.
His dream was to follow his father's footsteps as a physician, but became interested in acting watching his older sister Kerry perform.
