Jenna Dewan has become the role model for thousands of young girls after her turn in Disney’s Step Up so perhaps some of that new love will transition over to her next role as an 18-year-old college freshman in Fox Atomic’s Revenge of the Nerds remake.
Dewan’s character catches the eye of nerd Max (Christopher Marquette) on their first day at their new college. Ryan Pinkston was announced as a cast member yesterday and will play Felch, a 15-year-old whiz kid who is in over his head as he enters his first year of college.
The rest of the cast is made up of Katie Cassidy, Efren Ramirez, Dan Byrd and Kristin Cavallari. Filming got underway on October 9.
