He’s certainly a departure from Tom Cruise!

Alex Schemmer is a Harvard graduate who has appeared on Weeds and as a Swissair co-pilot in the new film Argo. He also wrote the script for Responsible Adults, which will star Katie Holmes and Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford. And he's the star of some new rumors that he's dating Katie herself.

“They started off having a quick phone chat about the film and they just really hit it off,” a source told Woman’s Day (via Celebuzz). “Katie has a massive crush on Alex. It’s pretty adorable how much she likes him.”

Maybe that's true maybe not. But Katie's rep shot down any romance rumors, telling Celebuzz, “She isn’t dating anyone.”

Yet! Give her time. Katie filed for divorce from Tom in late June. She's reportedly in no rush to find someone new, but a little crush never hurt a gal...
