EXCLUSIVE: 'High School Musical' Director Kenny Ortega Talks Casting An Unknown For 'HSM4'

Kenny Ortega might not be directing the next installment of High School Musical, but he definitely has some pull when it comes to the franchise.

The famed director, who is also behind Descendants and Descendants 2, talked with JJJ on the red carpet at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards about casting an unknown actor for the flick.

“I would think that we’re just gonna go out there and find the greatest talent that we can,” Kenny told us.

He adds that they have to “be ready for it. Ready for the experience and have the fearless determination to do something great.”

ICYMI: Kevin Quinn, Bailee Madison and more other young stars are definitely interested.

EXCLUSIVE: Ben Maybe, Might Be, Getting Married on 'Baby Daddy' Next Week!

OMG, is Ben really getting hitched on Baby Daddy next week?!

It looks like he’s really, really, really confused about it all in these first look pics from the episode.

In the episode, titled “You Cruise, You Lose”, Ben meets a runaway bride (Alex Frnka) who is convinced that fate has thrown them together in the same way Ben believes he and Elle are meant to be.

And because Ben definitely needs help in this situation, it’s Tucker (Tahj Mowry) to the rescue.

Um, good luck Ben!

Baby Daddy airs Mondays @ 8:30PM ET/PT on Freeform.

Aspiring Author 101: Famous in Love's Rebecca Serle on Putting Yourself Out There

Aspiring Author 101: Famous in Love's Rebecca Serle on Putting Yourself Out There

Do you have dreams of becoming a novelist? Aspiring Author 101 is a new feature on JustJaredJr.com where we dive into the nitty gritty of writing a novel with some of our favorite, successful YA authors.

First up is author Rebecca Serle – the brains behind the popular Famous in Love series – who also happens to write for the Freeform television adaptation of her book.

We talked with Rebecca about everything from where she writes, what books she recommends, and what advice she has for aspiring young novelists like you!

Be sure to pick up your copy of Famous in Love.

Aspiring Author 101 Q&A – Rebecca Serle

What’s one book everyone should read at some point? Stephen King‘s On Writing. It’s the best book on process that I’ve ever encountered. It’s the No. 1 piece of advice I give to someone who asks me for advice about writing. I also think it’s just a great life book. And because it’s Stephen King, it’s a page-turner.

One book you’ll never get tired of reading? Harry Potter. God knows how many times I’ve read Harry Potter (laughs).

Hardcover, paperback or digital copies? It’s different for different things. I’m a big memoir person and I love to read memoir. So Patti Smith’s memoir, Diane Keaton‘s memoir, I have all of those in hard cover. And most of them are signed, which is pretty cool. That’s the fun thing about living in New York. They all come to the Barnes and Noble in Union Square, so I get to go. Books like that I have in hard cover. I prefer to read in the flesh, but because I travel so much – I’m back and forth between New York and L.A. constantly – I do use my iPad a lot. I use everything. I get a lot of paperbacks [too].

EXCLUSIVE: Happy Birthday Jordan Fisher! These Are the 'Liv and Maddie' Cast Members He Stays in Touch With Most

EXCLUSIVE: Happy Birthday Jordan Fisher! These Are the 'Liv and Maddie' Cast Members He Stays in Touch With Most

Jordan Fisher turns 23 today!

We talked with the Liv and Maddie star (he plays Holden) about who he keeps in contact with the most from the show, and his answers will make you so nostalgic.

Dove [Cameron] and Ben King,” he tells us, then adding: “Dove and the dad. He’s become like a big brother to me, and I love his wife and his daughters a lot.”

As for Dove?Dove and I were friends before Liv and Maddie,” he explains. “We go way back. We go back over five years now, and I just adore her.”

Dove cancelled her flight back in December to watch Jordan perform in Hamilton, so it’s safe to say the feeling is mutual!
