Peter Kavinsky officially has some competition. Fresh off his performance in Rent: Live, Jordan Fisher is making his way over to one of the most anticipated Netflix films of 2019 – the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel. He will be playing John Ambrose McClaren, one of the recipients of Lara Jean’s letters. He confirmed his casting with this adorable video with Lana Condor on set.

The film’s producer Matt Kaplan released a statement to EW after the casting announcement as well.
Fans will recall that John Ambrose McClaren (played by Jordan Burtchett) technically arrived in the mid-credits scene in the first film, but after the movie’s unprecedented success, it made sense for Netflix to move forward with a recast and Fisher is a perfect fit.
In the books, John Ambrose definitely shakes things up for Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) who are just beginning to navigate a real relationship together.
In addition to Rent Live, Fisher also appeared in Fox’s performance of Grease Live. Other credits include Disney’s Teen Beach Movies, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Teen Wolf, and Liv and Maddie. Are you excited to see Fisher join To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before? The film currently does not have a release date but we will be sure to keep you updated!
