What would “Pitch Perfect 2” look like without Skylar Astin? Thankfully, fans will never have to find out. Ben Platt, who portrayed Benji in the first film, uploaded a picture to Twitter on Wednesday that confirmed Astin’s involvement in the sequel to the hit musical comedy.
“What better way to spend my first day on set for #PitchPerfect2 than by doing a scene with my roomie @SkylarAstin,” wrote Platt, adding a photo of the two actors smiling together.
Much of the plot remains unknown for “Pitch Perfect 2,” but fans can expect alums like Rebel Wilson, Elizabeth Banks and Anna Kendrick to show up, alongside newcomers like Hailee Steinfeld and Katey Sagal.
“Pitch Perfect 2” is directed by Elizabeth Banks from a screenplay by Kay Cannon, who also wrote the first film. The movie is produced by Banks, Cannon, Paul Brooks, Max Handelman, and Jeff Levine. A Gold Circle Films production, Universal Pictures will distribute the film to theaters on May 15.
The film also stars Brittany Snow, Ben Platt, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Adam Devine, Chrissie Fit, Hana Mae Lee, Shelley Regner, and Kelly Jakle.
