Gregg Sulkin has been cast as the lead in Status Update.
Gregg Sulkin has landed the lead in Status Update, an indie comedy from director Gabe Torres. Sulkin plays Josh, a five-star high school quarterback who wants to be a journalist. When he writes an article about his social experiment of changing his Facebook status from “single” to “interested in men,” a fellow male student with a crush on him creates a tribute video to “Josh the Gay Quarterback” that goes viral. The media picks it up, and Josh becomes a hero to gay teens. As his relationships get tested, can he keep the secret that he’s straight? Torres also co-wrote the pic with Britt Logan, and both produce for Digital Riot Media.
