June 6, 2011

Walt Disney Pictures would like to introduce to you this group of up and coming young actors.

“Prom” portrays the precarious passage from high school to independence as some relationships unravel and others ignite as the big dance approaches. There are hundreds of nights in high school, but there’s only one “Prom.”            Thomas McDonell (Jesse, “The Outsider”). Jesse is fiercely independent and lives by his own rules. His hardened exterior and “bad-boy” persona give him a definite anti-establishment vibe. Working to help his mother support the family eats up his free time, so making friends and participating in high school activities, especially Prom, are way down on his list. Jesse is a teen trapped in an adult life—what or who will it take to bust him out?

De’Vaughn Nixon (Tyler, “The Less Than Perfect Prom King”). Tyler has it all going on and then some. He is the most popular guy at Brookside High—charismatic, good looking, captain of the Lacrosse team—adored by all. Alongside campus beauty Jordan, he is one half of the picture-perfect high school couple…but looks can be deceiving.

Jared Kusnitz (Justin, “The Perfect Partner”). Justin is a sweet, smart guy who is an understanding, attentive and all-around great partner to Mei, a playfully artistic and stylish senior. They are the perfect couple for all the right reasons, but their relationship is tested when a secret that could impact their future comes between them.

Nolan Sotillo (Lucas, “The Love-struck Sophomore”). Lucas is an indie rock geek just about to learn how to balance friendship with love. Lucas tries to stay connected with his best friend Corey while following his heart—which is headed straight for Simone. Lucas doggedly persists in his attempts to get Simone’s attention, often enlisting Corey’s help, but he lacks the inner confidence to express how he feels.

Cameron Monaghan (Corey, “Music Geek”). For Corey, life is all about friendship. And that’s not a bad thing. Lost in a world of music, he isn’t growing up as fast as best friend Lucas and is not ready yet for the real world that awaits after graduation…but that doesn’t stop him from trying to help Lucas get the girl of his dreams.

Joe Adler (Rolo, “The Dude”). Rolo is an effortlessly laid-back, often oblivious guy that doesn’t feel the need to prove himself to anybody. He promises to have a knockout date on Prom night, which sounds increasingly suspect as details about her are revealed…his friends wonder will he or won’t he have a mystery girlfriend on his arm come Prom night.

Jonathan Keltz (Brandon, “The Perfect Guy”). Ivy Leaguer-in-the-making Brandon is Nova’s (Aimee Teegarden) picture-perfect guy. She believes she is destined to be with him—her parents think so too. But Brandon may not be the heartthrob Nova thinks he is…and thinks she wants.

Nicholas Braun (Lloyd, “The Reluctant Romantic”). Lloyd, who? You go to Brookside? Yes…Lloyd is that kid you see at graduation and realize you never talked to in all of your four years. A comedic character, Lloyd is looking hard for a prom date after he realizes he’s never asked a girl to do…well, anything, and now high school is coming to an end. Motivated by the fact that his time is running out and he’s left no legacy, Lloyd turns into an unstoppable romantic with a repertoire of funny antics. Putting all his game into play for an all-out prom-date blitz, Lloyd hopes to wind up with a girl…any girl.

          Opening across the Philippines on June 15, “Prom” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.
