We always find it funny when casting announcements come out after a movie has wrapped. But this one, we’re actually excited for, because we’ve been wondering who would be playing Blue, whose real name is Bram Greenfield, in Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda.
Thank God we now have an answer.
Deadline has reported that Keiynan Lonsdale is Blue. Our The Flash loving hearts rejoice.
If you aren’t familiar with Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, Blue is the character that Simon has a crush on. The two talk online and they fall for each other, without knowing who each other is in real life. In the book Simons life gets really well… complicated/crazy/intense, when a classmate gets a hold of their online talks and threatens to out them to the entire school.
Nick Robinson, Katherine Langford, Miles Heizer, Alexandra Shipp, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel and Tony Hale also star in the film.
Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda is due to hit theaters on March 16, 2018.
