Netflix is taking To All the Boys I’ve Loved quite literally with their casting for the upcoming sequel. It was just announced that Rent Lives! Jordan Fisher was taking on the role of John Ambrose and now Riverdale alum and 13 Reasons Why star Ross Butler is stepping aboard. The actor is really good friends with Peter Kavinsky himself, Noah Centineo, and the two announced the news alongside Netflix and Entertainment Weekly on social media with a near perfect photo.

His real-life friendship with Noah brings a natural chemistry and great rapport to the set and we can’t wait for fans to see this friendship play out onscreen,” producer Matt Kaplan told Entertainment Weekly.[/row]
Thanks to Lana Condor’s Instagram story we were able to get a first-hand look at this “great rapport to the set” that Kaplan was talking about. The actress who plays Lara Jean shared a video of the duo dancing away on set. “We’ve added another hooligan to our cast. @RossButler you fit in perfectly,” she wrote.
Before starring in 13 Reasons Why, Ross Butler appeared in season 1 of Riverdale as Reggie. He can be seen in the upcoming DC film Shazam, which hits theaters this weekend. Based on the second book of Jenny Han’s best-selling young adult trilogy, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’s sequel will find John Ambrose, one of the recipient’s of Lara Jean’s letters, coming back into her life shortly after she and Peter K. decided to date post-contract. The first film, which debuted on Netflix last year, was an unprecedented success and quickly became of the streaming services most popular films of 2018.
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
