‘Glamorous’: Chester Lockhart & Brady Dalton Richards Cast In CW Drama Pilot
AAHH WOAH I CAN TALK ABOUT IT NOW!!! This is a crazy huge thing and I couldn’t be more excited and grateful to be launching into this journey with such an incredible script and team. Thanks to my reps at Stein and Affinity and the folks at the CW, CBS TV Studios and Susan Vash Casting for this verifiably insane opportunity <3
Details as they appeared in the Deadline article:
Chester Lockhart (Todrick) and newcomer Brady Dalton Richards have joined the series-regular cast of the CW’s drama pilot Glamorous, from Damon Wayans Jr and his Two Shakes Entertainment, writer Jordon Nardino and CBS TV Studios. They join previously announced Brooke Shields, Ben Pierce, Peyton List and Susan Santiago.
Written by Nardino and directed by Eva Longoria in her pilot-directing debut, Glamorous centers on Marco (Pierce), a gender-nonconforming recent high school graduate who lands the gig of a lifetime interning at a cosmetics company whose products he panned on YouTube.
Richards is Ben, an insecure and endearing young assistant who develops a workplace crush on Marco.
Nardino, Wayans and Longoria executive produce. Two Shakes VP Development and Production Kameron Tarlow is co-executive producer. CBS TV Studios is the studio.
Richards, a graduate of Syracuse University’s School of Drama, is a New York theater-trained actor and musician. He will be performing in an upcoming production of Kate DiCamillo’s The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane (adapted by Dwayne Hartford) at 24th St. Theatre in Los Angeles. Richards is repped by Affinity Artists and Stein Entertainment Group.
