Do you ever wonder about Spencer’s country club crush from Season 1 of Pretty Little Liars? Well, we’re not sure what happened to Alex, but actor Diego Boneta is doing pretty well for himself. The Mexican-born actor/singer has just been cast in a new comedy/horror series from the creators of Glee, reports Deadline. What role will he be playing?
Scream Queens will tell the story of a college campus plagued by a series of murders. Though not much has been revealed about the show, Diego is rumored to be playing a “bookish but handsome guy.” Other actors on the ensemble include Lea Michele, Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Nick Jonas, Joe Manganiello, Ariana Grande, and Abigail Breslin. So, yeah, it sounds pretty damn awesome.
We’re also assuming (read: hoping) that Diego will be putting his pipes to good use given the Glee connection, but who knows? Glee creator Ryan Murphy has also created non-musical shows like Nip/Tuck and American Horror Story (though even that has included some musical numbers). Like the latter, Scream Queens is rumored to be an anthology series. Either way, we’re glad to see Diego land such a killer role. Now, if only we could lure him back to PLL for a guest star appearance to find out how Alex is doing...
