The OC actor Tate Donovan, who plays Marissa’s dad Jimmy Cooper on the FOX soap, is engaged to Corinne Kingsbury, 29, an L.A.-based entrepreneur, PEOPLE reports in its latest issue.

The lifelong bachelor, 42, a onetime beau of Sandra Bullock’s and Jennifer Aniston’s, plans to run the New York City Marathon Nov. 6 and attend a six-hour preparatory marriage counseling session the next day.

“Hopefully I can do it in a hot tub,” jokes the actor, who currently appears in George Clooney’s Good Night, and Good Luck.

Meanwile, Tate’s TV daughter, Mischa Barton, 19, has a new romance of her own brewing with 27-year-old singer Cisco Adler of the L.A. rock outfit Whitestarr.

Barton, who broke up with oil heir Brandon Davis in July, and Adler, whose failed engagement to Rod Stewart s daughter Kimberly reportedly resulted in her altering a tattoo from “Daddy s Little Girl Loves Cisco” to “Daddy s Little Girl Loves Disco,” have been spotted dining around L.A.

“She’s really happy,” says a source close to Barton. “They’re taking it one day at a time, but they’re together and having fun.”
