The '90s are back... and we're not just talking about the fashion. Television and film reboots from the decade have been making a comeback. So, we were not surprised to learn that the popular rom-com movie, She's All That, which starred then-teen heartthrob Freddie Prinze Jr., was being rebooted.
But, while details surrounding the film have slowly been released, fans have been finding out who will star alongside popular teen Addison Rae Easterling in the film. Keep reading to find out more about the rom-com reboot, titled He's All That.
Addison Rae was cast in '90s rom-com reboot 'He's All That.'
Social media influencers are taking over Hollywood! Since finding global success on TikTok in 2019, Addison Rae has since partnered with numerous brands, launched her own makeup line called Item Beauty, became BFFs with Kourtney Kardashian, and now landed the starring role in the She's All That remake.
Addison will play the role of a popular high school influencer who attempts to transform a not-so-cool teen guy into prom king. Overall, it's taking the same premise as the 1999 film and making it current.
Following the casting news, the 20-year-old took to Instagram to share her reaction to being cast in her acting debut.
"AHHHHH!!! My dreams are coming true!!! I’m so excited to finally share the news that i am getting the opportunity to make my acting debut in HE’S ALL THAT which is a remake of one of my all time favorite movies, SHE’S ALL THAT," she posted on Instagram.

She continued, "I can’t wait to work with this amazing team and everyone involved in making the film and am so thankful to everyone who gave me this incredible opportunity. THANK YOU!! I’m so excited for y’all to meet Padget!!!"
While some fans of the OG film may have their doubts about a social media star tackling the iconic reboot role, the writer of She's All That, R. Lee Fleming, is set to write the upcoming film.

It's official! Rachael Leigh Cook, who played Laney Boggs in the original 1999 film, has joined the cast of He's All That as Padgett's (Addison) "wise and caring mother." Seriously, all we need is Freddie to play her father and our dreams will be fulfilled.
While Addison will be portraying the role of Freddie's character in the OG film — you know, the popular high school teen — fans have wondered who will star opposite as the social outcast in the movie. It was announced that Tanner Buchanan will portray Rachael's character in the gender-flipping remake.
No stranger to reboots, Tanner is most known for his starring role in the Netflix series Cobra Kai, which is based on The Karate Kid.
Another star that has been cast in the film ... Kourtney Kardashian. Yes, we're serious. Addison's bestie landed a role in the reboot playing a character named Jessica Miles Torres. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted about her new gig on Instagram with a picture of herself reading lines, which she captioned, "Studying."
Other roles in the film will include a group of mean popular guys and girls that will be "friends" with Addison's character. According to IMDB, the film has cast Madison Pettis, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Andrew Matarazzo, and more.
