Jordan Gonzalez is prettying up his resume…
The Latino actor has joined the cast for HBO Max’s upcoming series Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin.
Gonzalez joins a roster of new cast additions that includes Carson Rowland, Ben Cook, Elias Kacavas and Benton Greene (Ghost, Riverdale). They’ll appear in recurring roles, joining stars Chandler Kinney, Maia Reficco, Bailee Madison, Zaria, Malia Pyles, Alex Aiono, Mallory Bechtel and Eric Johnson.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin is a present-day iteration of the popular 2010-17 series from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa; Lindsay Calhoon Bring; Alloy Entertainment; and Warner Bros TV. Lisa Soper will direct the first two episodes.
Written by Aguirre-Sacasa and Calhoon Bring, the reboot based on the bestselling books by Sara Shepard will feature a new story and new characters. Twenty years ago, a series of tragic events almost ripped the blue-collar town of Millwood apart. Now, in the present day, a group of disparate teen girls — a brand-new set of Little Liars — find themselves tormented by an unknown Assailant and made to pay for the secret sin their parents committed two decades ago…as well as their own. In the dark, coming-of-age, horror-tinged drama Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, we find ourselves miles away from Rosewood, but within the existing Pretty Little Liars universe — in a brand-new town, with a new generation of Little Liars.
Gonzalez will portray Ash, a handsome transgender student at Millwood High and romantic interest to Minnie (Malia Pyles).
Aguirre-Sacasa executive produces via his Muckle Man Productions, with Alloy’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo.
Gonzalez’s previous credits include The L Word: Generation Q and Meta.
