Matthew Lawrence sure knows how to get back on the bachelor scene after his February split with Dancing with the Stars' Cheryl Burke. The actor, 28, was spotted on what appeared to be a cozy double date Wednesday night at Villa in West Hollywood, where he and pal Ben Savage shared a table with two lady friends. "Matthew was whispering in his date's ear, and had his arm around her chair," says a fellow patron. The happy foursome enjoyed drinks at a table throughout the night before leaving together after midnight.
