'Mix Up in the Mediterranean' Full Cast List: Meet Jeremy Jordan, Jessica Lowndes and rest of the stars from Hallmark movie
'Mix Up in the Mediterranean' features Jeremy Jordan playing the first-ever gay lead role on the Hallmark channel
'Mix Up in the Mediterranean' follows the culinary confusion that occurs when a small-time cook finds romance while impersonating his big city twin in a culinary competition.
