TikTok star Addison Rae crosses over to acting in Netflix’s ‘He’s All That’ trailer
Ready to feel old?
He’s All That, Netflix’s gender-swapped reimagining of She’s All That (1999) will star TikTokker Addison Rae. Rae plays Padgett, a high schooler and beauty influencer who catches her boyfriend cheating on her mid-livestream. To recover from her viral humiliation, Padgett takes on a bet: make over unpopular classmate Cameron (Tanner Buchanan) and get him to win prom king. Of course, hijinks ensue when Padgett finds herself falling for her pet project.
He’s All That‘s first trailer puts Rae front and center and includes an unfortunate (but maybe romantic?) trip to a stable, a whole lot of social media references, and, of course, the central makeover. Directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls), He’s All That is the first major film to star a TikTokker, perhaps ushering in a new wave of social media movie stars…we’ll see.
He’s All That is on Netflix Aug. 27.
