Blake Jenner has landed his next project…
The 23-year-old half-Cuban American actor/singer and former Glee star will star opposite Hailee Steinfeld in STX Entertainment’s untitled coming-of-age drama film.
Formerly titled Besties, the film is a wry coming-of-age comedy about Nadine (Steinfeld) and Krista, inseparable best friends attempting to navigate high school together…until Nadine discovers her older brother and Krista have been secretly dating behind her back. They soon realize that there is a fine line between best friends and worst enemies.
Jenner will portray the older brother, a popular and handsome soccer player who is the exact opposite of Nadine. Despite the differences between the siblings, Jenner’s character is described as the one keeping the family together amid the turmoil.
Woody Harrelson, Kyra Sedgwick and Hayden Szeto also star in the film from first time writer-director Kelly Fremon.
Jenner is best known for winning the second season of Oxygen’s The Glee Project, earning him a role on Fox’s Glee.
He’ll soon appear in the films Within and Billy Boy. He also stars in Everybody Wants Some, the Richard Linklater film that Paramount Pictures will release on April 15, 2016.
