    This year?! Wow, that’s fast.

    Also, I while I love Ben Platt and I get that he is Evan, I would have liked to see one of the younger Evan’s like Jordan Fisher or Andrew Barth Feldman playing Evan. I just feel Ben is too old to play a 16/17-year old, but that’s just me.

    Best Screenplay: Never Rarely Sometimes Always (Eliza Hitman)

    100% with you on this. He’s 27 and he looks it.

    Though Ben Platt did mention in interviews last summer about his concerns of possibly becoming too long in the tooth for the role if the film wasn’t able to get made in time.

    I know, I just wish they would have used like, Jordan Fisher, or someone. I know he’s started to be in things lately. I get why they used Ben tho.

    I got to see Andrew Barth Feldman on Broadway play this role and he was amazing! It was so refreshing to see an actual teenager play a teenager. I wish he was cast instead, although maybe not if it meant that Kaitlyn Dever would be too old.

    Jordan Fisher looks older than Platt though.

    While he was on Drew Barrymore’s talk show last month, Ben Platt got to talk about his experience making the movie.

    This just came completely out of the blue today, but we now have ourselves a trailer for the movie.

    Looks kind of like a more serious High School Musical, not sure how this will play with Awards voters…

    It might be hurt by the Globes being in limbo too….

    Did they put makeup or something to try to de-age him? It’s especially glaring in the scenes with actual young people. Yikes.

    Ben looks a little weird (not such a mess that some people are making it out to be) yet I think the movie will be good. But it’s not going to be nominated for awards I think.

    I’m still really looking forward to this film and the performances look great. But damn, those de-aging effects on Ben do not look good. It would have honestly been less distracting if they didn’t de-age him at all.
