Is it weird that so many singers have been connected to this non-musical show?

Jordan Fisher singing a song from Dear Evan Hansen with the cast of DEH on Good Morning America today:



BTW, Jordan was also in Work It, with fellow speedster Keiynan.

Elsie Fest is back (Aug. 29), and Jordan Fisher (Bart) is one of the featured performers.



Also Keiynan Lonsdale booked a lead role in a rom-com: 'LGBTQ Rom-Com ‘My Fake Boyfriend’'


Lionsgate and BuzzFeed have set the LGBTQ romantic comedy My Fake Boyfriend as the partnership’s second production, with the film to star Keiynan Lonsdale, Dylan Sprouse and Sarah Hyland.

Directed by Rose Troche (The Safety of Objects, The L Word), the film follows a young man (Lonsdale) who, on the advice of his best friend (Sprouse) creates a fake, social media boyfriend to keep his ex-lover out of his life. The plan backfires when he meets the real love of his life, and breaking up with his fake boyfriend proves hard to do.

This article talks a bit about the film, Re: Uniting, which stars Michelle Harrison and Jesse L. Martin (there's also a photo of both on set); but it's mostly about the director. It also mentions that Carmen Moore (Kramer) has a role in the film.

There's more info about the film Grant did over the hiatus in this interview (which I think the movie filmed in June/July):


... Gustin was in Victoria, British Columbia, filming a movie for Netflix called Rescued by Ruby, a true story about a Rhode Island state trooper wanting to be a part of the K-9 Unit who meets an unwanted dog, and well, we have ourselves a tearjerker of a film.

“It’s a really sweet underdog story about Ruby who was a shelter dog and Daniel O’Neil who is a Rhode Island state trooper,” says Gustin. “Daniel had always wanted to be a canine officer, even though he’s qualified for all these other types of specialties as a police officer, but he had struggled with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and attention issues at times, hasn’t always been the best reader, wasn’t necessarily the right temperament for the canine unit but had just always felt that that was where he belonged.

“Ruby has been returned like five times and was going to be put down because she was deemed ‘unmanageable’ and couldn’t be adopted. And right at the last minute, Daniel adopts her. A shelter dog had never made the canine unit on this police force and yes the underdog story of them trying to make the unit together and eventually becoming heroes in their own right and making each other’s lives better.” The film will be directed by Sundance Grand Jury prize nominee Katt Shea (Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase and Poison Ivy films) adapted from two short stories by Squire Rushnell and Louise DuArt, Ruby: A Dogwink Story and Dogwink Ruby. Rushnell and DuArt will also serve as producers along with Dan Angel, Jane Charles, and Brian Gott. Netflix is aiming to air Ruby in early 2022.

Apparently Grant and Chris Wood did a short film together (sometime last winter??). Someone found the listing in the Rhode Island International Film Festival in August.

Jordan Fisher (Bart) was a presenter at the Tony Awards last night:




In 'cast in the same roles' news; John Wesley Shipp's guest appearance (as ... The Flash) on Stargirl will be on October 5.

Jordan Fisher talks about his voice role in Star Wars: Visions in these two interviews:



Fisher’s episode is “The Elder,” a fascinating master/student story featuring performances from David Harbour (Stranger Things) and the iconic James Hong (Kung Fu Panda). Fisher plays Dan, a young Padawan on the rise, who is sent with Tajin to explore the Outer Rim. Tajin has a strong connection with the Force and Dan is eager to prove himself as they face off against a mysterious Elder who has lured them to a mountaintop.

Grant's film, Rescued by Ruby, will premiere on Netflix March 17:

When fate brings Dan and Ruby together, it’s their unshakable bond that helps them face their toughest challenge yet. Based on a true story. Based on the short stories Ruby: A Dogwink Story and Dogwink Ruby by SQuire Rushnell & Louise DuArt

WRITER: Karen Janszen

CAST: Grant Gustin, Scott Wolf

Another article about the real-life inspiration for Rescued by Ruby:


Netflix is trying to tug at the heartstrings of dog lovers everywhere with Rescued by Ruby.

In the movie, streaming now, The Flash star Grant Gustin plays Dan, a state trooper who keeps unsuccessfully applying to the state police's K-9 team. Until, that is, he meets a shelter puppy called Ruby.

All very touching stuff for fans of man's best friend. But what sets Rescued by Ruby apart from movies such as Marley and Me, A Dog's Purpose and A Dog's Journey (amazingly, they are different films) is that it is based on a true story, with the events occurring in Rhode Island in 2011.

A few of The Flash writers wrote the last two issues of the Earth-Prime comic mini-series; Jess Carson and Emily Palizzi for #5 - The Flash, and Jeff Hersh and Thomas Pound for #6 - Crossover.

The stories are supposed to be the characters from the TV shows, and canon for the TV universe.

There's also supposed to be 'bonus material' from the casts; but that info isn't available yet.

I think this was discussed elsewhere, but not here; Jesse L. Martin has the lead role in NBC's pilot for ‘The Irrational’. The pilot is supposed to be filming later this month.

[ETA:] According to that article, Martin will also be a producer; so more than one upgrade.

The latest news: http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news/2022/05/16/nbc-builds-on-strong-fall-schedule-with-the-addition-of-new-series-quantum-leap-and-lopez-vs-lopez-to-its-winning-lineup-202114/20220516nbc01/


As part of NBC's rolling pilot process, the following projects have been picked up to pilot with decisions yet to be made on series greenlights: "Blank Slate," "Found," "Irrational," "Unbroken" and an untitled drama from Mike Daniels. With NBC's 52-week scheduling strategy, these pilots - if picked up to series - could be possibilities for later in the 2022-23 season or could roll over to the 2023-24 season.
