Subscribe To Glee's Jacob Artist To Play Shailene Woodley's Love Interest In Gregg Araki's White Bird Updates
 
 
Gregg Araki's White Bird already brings together a number of talented young performers, including The Descendant's Shailene Woodley, Shiloh Fernandez and Gabourey Sidibe, but now another is about to join their ranks. Jacob Artist, best known for starring as Jake Puckerman this year on the hit Fox television series Glee, has taken a part in the upcoming indie drama.

Variety says that the film will follow a "troubled young woman (who will be played by Woodley) who sees her life start to fall apart when her mother (Eva Green) suddenly disappears. Artist will play opposite Woodley, playing the protagonist's love interest who joins her to college. The rest of the cast includes Christopher Meloni, Angela Bassett, Mark Indelicato and Dale Dickey, though no details about their individual characters is known at this time. Araki, whose previous creits include dramas like Kaboom, Mysterious Skin, and The Doom Generation, is writing the script and producing along with Pascal Caucheteux and Sebastien Lemercier.

This will actually be one of the first feature films that Artist has been in. While he began his career playing single episode parts on shows like Bucket and Skinner's Epic Adventures, How To Rock, and Melissa & Joey (not to mention a role in the TV movie Blue Lagoon: The Awakening), his only film credit is The Philosophers, a John Huddles fantasy thriller with James D'Arcy, Bonnie Wright, and Daryl Sabara that hasn't been released yet. The trade's latest report doesn't say when White Bird is scheduled to go into production.
