'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' Part 2 will see Jordan Fisher's John Ambrose fight for Lara Jean's affection
Noah Centineo has major competition from, not one, but two Ambroses, which was first played by Jordan Burtchett and now, Jordan Fisher
There's yet another boy to love. 'To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before' alum Lana Condor introduced Lara Jean Covey's new love interest on Instagram yesterday and by the looks of it, Peter Kavinsky, played by Noah Centineo, has major competition.
Jordan Fisher, who played the starring role of Mark in 'Rent: Live' and won the 2017's title of 'Dancing With The Stars,' has been cast as John Ambrose McClaren in the upcoming sequel. The name sounds familiar, doesn't it? That is because he was one of the recipients of Lara Jean's letters in the books as well as in part 1. 'To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before', had ended on a cliffhanger when John, the model Lara had a crush on, showed up on her doorstep clutching one of the leaked letters.
In the short video, first posted in Fisher's social media handle as well as in Condor's, we see her knocking on the door of a trailer on set, that reads 'John McClaren'. Fisher comes out from the door and Lana shares how "excited", she is that he has joined the cast. "Oh my gosh, you're here! This is gonna be so amazing!", she says before the actor comes into full view.
Prior to the video release on Instagram and Twitter, Entertainment Weekly reported a statement; "We couldn’t be more excited to have Jordan Fisher join the 'To All the Boys' family as John Ambrose McClaren," the sequel's producer Matt Kaplan was quoted. "Jordan’s charisma practically leaps off the screen with anything he does, whether it’s acting, singing, or dancing. There isn’t a more perfect guy who could believably shake things up in Lara Jean and Peter’s world."
And fans agree. They think that Centineo's Kavinsky will have a major competition and a love triangle is very feasible.
However, not many are happy with the news. Because another actor, Jordan Burtchett had briefly appeared as the character at the end of 'TATBILB' part one.
Actually kinda pissed off. While he’s a great actor, he is NOT John Ambrose and doesn’t fit the description. Was so excited for @JordanBurtchett bcuz he was a perfect representation. Not that excited for the sequel now. 😕— RareFactor (@RareFactor) March 29, 2019
Burtchett's bio still reads that he appeared as John Ambrose. Peter Kavinsky vs two Ambroses? What a showdown will it be! Another reason why we can't wait for 2020!
