Noah Centineo Is Playing Another Fake Boyfriend in Netflix’s Rom-Com ‘The Perfect Date’
Noah Centineo became a certified internet boyfriend in 2018, thanks mostly to his role as the swoon-worthy Peter Kavinsky in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. And it looks like he’ll be heating up your summer again in 2019, as — wait for it — another fake boyfriend in Netflix’s upcoming rom-comThe Perfect Date with Riverdale‘s Camila Mendes and Lady Bird‘s Laura Marano.
The streaming service announced his new role on Friday, January 11, via the See What’s Next Twitter account. “[Noah Centineo] will pretend to be your boyfriend this summer! Well, he will in our movie The Perfect Date w/ [Laura Marano] & [Camila Mendes],” the tweet read. “He plays an enterprising young man who, to make money for college, creates a dating app & stands in for non-existent boyfriends.”
According to an official synopsis, Centineo’s character, Brooks Rattigan, soon gets caught up in the act of pretending to be other people, which leads him to question who he really is and what he wants from a relationship.
Judging by the first pics from the film, Mendes and Marano will play women who enlist Brooks’ services. The cast also includes Odiseas Georgiadis (Trinkets) and two-time Emmy nominee Matt Walsh (Veep).
Netflix has not yet announced an exact release date for the film, but you’ll have plenty of opportunities to see Centineo on screen in the coming months. He’s also working on the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel and the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot starring Kristen Stewart.
