Get ready Aca-Nerds! Because the release of Pitch Perfect 2 is upon us. Fans can expect much of the same comedy, fun and of course, singing from the original, with a few new surprises along the way.
One of the newest additions to the Pitch Perfect cast is Hailee Steinfeld. The 18-year-old actress from Los Angeles has already put together a string of successful performances in her short career. This included an Oscar-nominated performance in the 2010 film, True Grit.
Fellow Pitch Perfect co-star, Anna Camp, believes Steinfeld has the vocals to go along with her extraordinary acting ability, as she told E! News last year.
“She is amazing! She’s a great addition to the cast. Her character is lovely and charming. I think people are going to fall in love with her.”
Fans of the original film can also expect to see some returning faces to the new film. One of which is Skylar Astin, who will be reprising his role as Jesse.
Pitch Perfect has been a stepping stone for Astin, who has seen himself become a hot commodity in Hollywood after the film’s success. He appeared in the relatively successful film 21 & Over, and has also settled into roles on the small screen which included the short-lived TBS series, Ground Floor, and an upcoming sitcom based on the NBA.
However, despite his triumphs away from Pitch Perfect, Astin knows a lot of his success is credited to co-star to Anna Kendrick, who is looking to once again capture audiences attention with her wonderful vocal ability.
“I love Anna Kendrick because she is the consummate professional.” Astin told E! News, “She is funny and I think there is a reason she is very successful because she is very ambitious.”
Pitch Perfect has not only launched the career of Skylar Astin, but it may bring an underrated actress like Hailee Steinfeld into the forefront of Hollywood. And With a cast that includes Hollywood sweetheart, Anna Kendrick, the Pitch Perfect sequel should be a chart-topping hit.
