Blake Jenner & Melissa Beniost Return To LA After 'Everybody Wants Some' Promo in NYC

Blake Jenner lets wife Melissa Benoist walk ahead of him as they leave LAX airport on Thursday (April 14) in Los Angeles.

The two actors and longtime couple just returned from New York City, where Blake, 23, was promoting his new film, Everybody Wants Some.

“The funnest days were when we were all together in the house (where the team lives), or doing the disco scene or whatever,” Blake dished to press about the feel of the set. “Throughout everything, man. We were a team on set trying to portray these guys and off the set, in dance rehearsal or shooting the dances, shooting the baseball stuff.”

He added, “I remember when I was doing the pitching stuff on the mound, (co-star) Wyatt Russell was there behind the camera signaling to me, reach your arm back a little more. It was just a constant brotherhood and support system.”
