Jem and the Holograms Sets Ryan Guzman as Rio

April 29, 2014


On the heels of last week's teaser images, Jem and the Holograms has added Step Up All In star Ryan Guzman to the cast. The Hollywood Reporter says he'll be playing Rio Pacheco, who, in the cartoon, was both the band's road manager and a love interest for Jem.

The Jon M. Chu film is already set to star Aubrey Peeples as Jem, Stefanie Scott as Kimber, Hayley Kiyoko as Aja and Aurora Perrineau as Shana.

Created by Christy Marx, the original "Jem and the Holograms" series was a joint collaboration from Hasbro, Marvel and Sunbow Productions. It began airing in 1985 and ran for three seasons, following the adventures of the titular Jem, the musical superstar alter ego of a young woman named Jerrica Benton who, with the help of a holographic computer called Synergy, is able to clandestinely perform rock concerts with her friends.
