Boy, that was fast! Remember when we said they were auditioning regular people to be part of the Jem & The Holograms film? Well, looks like they’ve already put together their main cast
If you’ve waited all your life to see Jem & The Holograms as real people, you’re one step closer as the main actors have already been cast for the upcoming live-action film which is being directed by Jon M. Chu.
Actress Aubrey Peeples has been cast as the coveted Jem aka Jerrica Benton in her first major film role. Known for her character as Layla Grant on the ABC show Nashville, this beauty not only acts, but can sing too and has vocally been classically trained from when she was 10!
As for the rest of The Holograms, Stefanie Scott (Disney’s A.N.T. Farm) will play Jem’s sister Kimber.
Aurora Perrineau (Pretty Little Liars) will play purple-locks Shana.
And Hayley Kiyoko (The Fosters) will play blue-haired Aja.
Chu has even released a teaser poster through his Twitter account, and we must say – we’re incredibly excited!
Truly outrageous! We can’t wait to see who will play The Misfits – watch this space!
