Yep, you read that right: High-profile TikTok star Addison Rae is moving from the smartphone screen to the silver screen, set to play in Hollywood’s upcoming remake of the 1999 romantic comedy ‘She’s All That.’

‘She’s All That’ stands as one of the 90’s most classic romcoms, following the story of high schooler Zachary Stiller, whose snobby girlfriend ditches him for a reality TV star.

In a bet with his friend, Zach is tasked with turning one of his female classmates into a candidate worthy of Prom Queen to challenge the notion that no one could replace his ex-girlfriend, leading him to art student Laney Boggs.

It turns out the upcoming remake of the beloved film will be totally gender-swapped, meaning that a female student will seek to transform one of her nerdy high school classmates into ‘Prom King.’

As for Addison’s role in all this? She will be playing the titular character, who, in the 21st century remake, is a famous influencer — a role she’s already proven herself more than worthy for.

That’s not the only notable thing about this remake, either; the movie’s original producers, Jennifer Gibgot and Andrew Panay, and writer R. Lee Fleming, are all getting back together for its new iteration, spelling out an optimistic outlook for fans of the first flick.

“This reboot is a welcomed step towards a new generation of Miramax storytelling, part of our greater strategy to leverage our existing library with fresh, re-imagined content in both film and TV,” said Miramax CEO Bill Block in a report from Variety.

Addison Rae is one of TikTok’s most popular creators, who is set to star in an upcoming Hollywood film.

Rae is more than ready to smash the part, we’re sure, seeing as how she reportedly makes the most money out of anyone on TikTok and boasts a whopping 60 million followers on the viral video app.

Addison likewise has her very own makeup line and podcast, and is even rubbing elbows with the Kardashians on a regular basis.

“My dreams are coming true!” Rae said of her casting in an Instagram post. “I’m so excited to finally share the news that I am getting the opportunity to make my acting debut in HE’S ALL THAT, which is a remake of one of my all-time favorite movies, SHE’S ALL THAT.  …I can’t wait to work with this amazing team and everyone involved in making the film and am so thankful to everyone who gave me this incredible opportunity.”

Considering the folks behind this film, we’re hopeful that it won’t turn out like other influencer movies (think Logan Paul’s ‘Airplane Mode’) — but there’s no telling until we see the movie for ourselves.

NELK Boys’ SteveWillDoIt surprises Kyle with super rare $135k Audi RS7

The NELK Boys’ might be best known for their crazy party antics, but SteveWillDoIt has been on an insane charitable spree recently, topping it off by buying NELK co-founder Kyle Forgeard an incredibly rare Audi RS7.

Earlier in October, Steve set up a homeless man with a whole new life: a new job, an apartment and $25,000 in the bank, hoping to truly turn his life around.

Now, Steve is trying to thank Kyle for bringing him into NELK and giving him the platform to make himself a success, and has done so in one of the most extravagant ways possible.

Referring to himself as the “cool Mr Beast,” Steve and the whole NELK team managed to keep the secret of his gift for a month — and it was definitely worth it.

The NELK Boys are most commonly known for their wild lifestyle.

After arriving back in Orlando, Florida, Steve tells Kyle that he’s got a “very cool” rental car that he can drive from the airport.

Obviously, at first Kyle was confused about what it could be, perhaps a bit cautious. But, when they got outside and Kyle saw his “dream car,” which is currently only one of two of its kind in the US, he assumed Steve had hired the 2021 Audi RS7 for a test drive for him.

Instead, after one of the women there congratulated him, it was revealed that Steve had actually paid for the car, in cash and upfront, for Kyle to keep as his own — only his second car since an old Mazda he used to own.

It definitely sounds like Steve had to pull some strings to make it happen. He was originally searching for a 2020 Audi RS7, knowing that it was Kyle’s dream car, but the opportunity to pick up a 2021 model arrived and he couldn’t pass it up, paying for the car there and then when it was available.

With only two currently in the US, it would be interesting to see who has the other one. It’s almost funny to think that one of them belongs to a YouTube prankster who just likes to make crazy videos for his fans.
