Actor Ryan Guzman, who rose to fame thanks to Step Up 4 (and who’s pictured below busting a move), is joining the cast of the upcoming live-action movie adaptation of Jem and the Holograms.
He will play the role of Rio Pacheco, the road manager and technical engineer for the Holograms, and a long-time childhood friend and boyfriend of Jerrica Benton.
“Music executive Jerrica Benton (played by Aubrey Peeples) lives a secret, adventurous life as a glamorous rock star named Jem.”
