Noah Centineo confirms he is playing He-Man in 'Masters of the Universe' remake, says: 'I have an affinity for being in my underwear'
Actor Noah Centineo's Netflix appearances have certainly made him the talk of the town. The actor who made hearts swoon with his lovable roles in 'To All The Boys I've Loved Before', 'Sierra Burgess Is A Loser' and 'Perfect Date' has now confirmed that he will be playing the role of He-Man in the upcoming remake of the film 'Masters of the Universe'. The actor made this revelation when he appeared on 'The Tonight Show' with Jimmy Fallon. "I'm very excited!" Noah shared. "It's quite an opportunity."
When Jimmy asked Noah about the rumors that he was playing He-Man, he said, "Yes. I have an affinity for being in my underwear." This happened right after Jimmy and Noah discussed the Calvin Klein shoot that he did.
The two even cheered for the remake and Jimmy noted how a boy who had 700k followers on Instagram about seven months ago now has about 17 million followers. Noah noted how this was largely due to the fact that he appeared on films that were streamed on Netflix which has subscribers worldwide. Noah also revealed that he is currently shooting for 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before 2'. Lana Candor, his co-star in the film had also appeared on the show and told Jimmy about a pact that she and Noah had made.
She had said how Noah and she decided that the two of them wouldn't date each other. Speaking of this, Noah said, "We really connected because we were both going through some things. And we just opened up about it from the beginning. It was kind of like an unsaid agreement, that this is a platonic thing. And then we talked about it after pizza and hot yoga. It was good."
'Masters of the Universe' is based on the Mattel toy line and is expected to follow the journey of Prince Adam who wields a sword to turn into He-Man, a powerful warrior. In the 1987 film, the role of He-Man was played by Dolph Lundgren. The film is written by brothers Adam and Aaron Nee who will also direct it. Noah is also expected to work in Elizabeth Banks' upcoming 'Charlie's Angels' reboot.
