For a while now we’ve known that nearly all the Pitch Perfect ladies would return for the sequels, but while Skylar Astin has suggested he’d return, it’s only now that he’s signed on to reprise his role as Jesse Pitch Perfect 2, according to Deadline.
He’s not the only one either, as Ben Platt – who plays Benji – has tweeted a picture from the set showing he’s back too. And who’s he got with him? Well, Skylar Astin of course. You can see that pic below.
Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Camp and Adam DeVine reprise their roles from Pitch Perfect, with Hailee Steinfeld coming on board as a new character who’s being set up as a potential lead for future sequels.
And the reason they’ll need a new lead is that it’s believed this film will follow Kendrick and Wilson’s characters through to their graduation.
Elizabeth Banks is directing from a script by Kay Cannon. Pitch Perfect 2 is due out May 2015.
What better way to spend my first day on set for #PitchPerfect2 than by doing a scene with my roomie @SkylarAstin. pic.twitter.com/WM9yH7y0qh
