Addison Rae cast in Animal Friends movie with Ryan Reynolds
Addison Rae has joined the cast of Animal Friends, a film also set to star Ryan Reynolds, Jason Momoa, and Aubrey Plaza.
After starring in a breakout role for Netflix’s 2021 rom-com He’s All That, TikToker Addison Rae has a bright future ahead of her in the film business.
For instance, following the He’s All That release, Netflix signed Rae for a multi-movie deal, with the platform’s Director of Family Film, Naketha Mattocks, praising the influencer’s undeniable “charm and promise.”
The burgeoning actress has also landed a major part in Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving horror film, which will hit theaters later this year in mid-November. Now it seems Rae’s IMDb page will soon require yet another update.
