Tyler Alvarez has lined up his next project…
The 23-year-old Puerto Rican and Cuban-American actor has joined the cast of Hulu’s untitled coming-of-age romance film starring Rowan Blanchard and Auli’i Cravalho, which Sammi Cohen is directing.
Alvarez, who currently appears on Season Two of Netflix’s Never Have I Ever, joins a list of cast newcomers that includes Megan Mullally, Michelle Buteau, Aasif Mandvi, Teala Dunn and Isabella Ferreira.
The film, scripted by Kirsten King and Casey Rackham, centers on an aspiring artist who is forced to join her high school track team, using it as an opportunity to pursue the girl she’s been harboring a long-time crush on. Later, she finds herself falling for an unexpected teammate, only then discovering what real love feels like.
Blanchard will play Paige, the aspiring artist who’s thrust out of her comfort zone, with Cravalho portraying AJ, an elusive track star who has always lived in the shadow of her twin sister.
