With Corbin Bleu on Broadway, Zac Efron starring in Charlie St. Cloud and Vanessa Hudgens going bad ass, Disney is in need of a new set of young stars.

Enter Bridgit Mendler and Adam Hicks.

These actors have been cast in Lemonade Mouth, an 2011 Disney Channel film that follows a quintet of high school students who meet in detention and form a band. Mendler, who stars in Good Luck Charlie, will take on the role of lead vocalist Olivia White; while Hicks (Zeke and Luther) portrays keyboardist Wen Giford.
