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.
Other names rounding out the cast include: Tisha Campbell-Martin, Christopher McDonald, Nick Roux, Chris Brochu, Naomi Scott, Blake Michael and Hayley Kiyoko.
The movie is based on the book Lemonade Mouth by Mark Peter Hughes. Keep all these names in mind. You’ll likely hear a lot more from them in the future.
