Grey's Anatomy's Jake Borelli to Star in Valentine's Day Movie for Freeform!

Jake Borelli will star in the upcoming movie The Thing About Harry, which will debut on Freefrom next year.

The romantic comedy will be a Valentine’s Day-themed road trip that will be directed by The Fosters creator Peter Paige, who had his big break while starring on Queer as Folk. He’s also going to star in the film!

Jake will play Sam, a handsome, funny, neurotic, intelligent young gay man who combines a scathing wit with an overly idealistic worldview. Sam came out when he was still in high school, something that took a lot of courage in his small Missouri town, but was constantly bullied.

Newcomer Niko Terho will portray Harry, an emotionally uncomplicated, promiscuous player who has always left a string of broken hearts in his wake. Under the surface, Harry actually yearns for love, family and stability, but the thought of commitment still terrifies him.

Queer Eye‘s Karamo Brown will play Paul, an exceedingly well put-together, yet overbearing and pretentious gay man; GLOW‘s Britt Baron will play Stasia, Sam’s edgy and opinionated best friend; and Peter will play Casey, Sam’s warm-hearted roommate, who always wants the best for Sam.

Freeform Responds to Trolls Over Halle Bailey Casting as Ariel in 'The Little Mermaid'

Freeform has issued an official statement addressing Halle Bailey being cast in The Little Mermaid.

The Disney-owned network took to Instagram on Saturday (July 6) to pen a letter titled “An open letter to the Poor, Unfortunate Souls” to address the racist trolls who have slammed the upcoming live-action film for casting the 19-year-old grown-ish star as Ariel.

“Yes. The original author of ‘The Little Mermaid’ was Danish. Ariel…is a mermaid. She lives in an underwater kingdom in international waters and can legit swim whever [sic] she wants (even though that often upsets King Triton, absolute zaddy).”

Freeform continued: “But for the sake of the argument, let’s say that Ariel, too, is Danish. Danish mermaids can be black bc Danish people can be black. Ariel can sneak up to the surface at any time with her pals Scuttle and the ahem Jamaican crab Sebastian (Sorry, Flounder!) and keep that bronze base tight.”

“Black Danish people, and thus mer-folk, can also genetically (!!!) have red hair. But spoiler alert – bring it back to the top – the character of Ariel is a work of fiction.”

Freeform concluded: “So, after all this is said and done, and you still cannot get past the idea that choosing the incredible, sensational, highly-talented, gorgeous Halle Baily is anything other than INSPIRED casting that it is because she ‘doesn’t look like the cartoon one”, oh boy, do I have some news for you… about you.”

'Shadowhunters' Canceled by Freeform After Three Seasons

The Freeform series Shadowhunters has been canceled after three seasons, but there is a little bit of good news too.

The upcoming 10-episode season has wrapped production, but the cast will film two more episodes to wrap the storyline in the series and end the show properly for fans.

The third season of the series will follow the fourth and fifth books in the Mortal Instruments series and the two-hour finale will cover the sixth and final book, according to Deadline.

“We are very proud of Shadowhunters, a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favorite,” Freeform said in a statement. “However, along with our partners at Constantin, we reached the very difficult decision not to renew the show for a fourth season. But as big supporters and fans ourselves, Freeform insisted on and championed the filming of a special two-part finale that would give devoted fans a proper ending. The twelve episodes will air in spring of 2019. We want to thank our talented creators, producers, cast and crew along with our colleagues at Constantin for their hard work and dedication and to Cassie Clare for her incredible book series. We look forward to the final chapter of this breakthrough drama.”

Shadowhunters stars Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Matthew Daddario, Emeraude Toubia, and Isaiah Mustafa.
