Noah Centineo is headed into Fosters care…
The 19-year-old Latino actor has joined the cast of ABC Family’s award-winning drama The Fosters as a series regular in a recasting.
He’ll play Jesus Adams Foster, originally played by Jake T. Austin, who left the series at the end of Season 2.
Austin tweeted in March that he had decided to exit the series and when Jesus had gotten into a traumatic accident at the end of the season, it was believed his character had been killed off. But it was revealed in the Season 3 opener that Jesus survived and had gone off to boarding school.
Centineo, best known for playing the role of Dallas in Austin & Ally and Jaden in How to Build a Better Boy, will join the series in the second half of Season 3, premiering in 2016.
He also appeared in the Disney Channel’s Shake It Up, Jessie and Growin Up and Down.
