If there is one thing we can confidently say about the new Netflix original comedy Work It, it is that the young man whom Sabrina Carpenter’s character enlists to help choreograph her dance team is one talented dude. The dude in question is Jordan Fisher, and we would not hold it against you if you had never heard of him before the dance flick began making waves. Or maybe you've been a huge fan of the talented actor since his days on The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
The 26-year-old is a successful recording artist, an active streamer on Twitch, a champion on Dancing with the Stars, and a Broadway favorite, especially after he took over the title roles of Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen and a little stage show you may have heard of called Hamilton in recent years. As a screen actor, Jordan Fisher really began to break out as a Disney Channel star, with a recurring sitcom spot and a couple of original movies, but seems to be making an even bigger impression lately on Netflix.
Whether you're a huge fan or looking to become more acquainted with one of the industry’s most talented young stars right now, there are plenty of options available streaming. The following is an assortment 12 movies, shows, and televised specials starring Jordan Fisher that you can stream, starting with the latest film to show off all that he does best.

In order to secure her admission into a prestigious college once attended by her late father, a high school senior puts together a new dance team to compete against the best group at her school, despite not knowing how to dance herself.
Why It's A Good Option for Jordan Fisher Fans: In order to help her ragtag team of "diamonds in the rough" succeed, Quinn Ackerman (Sabrina Carpenter's central role in Work It) seeks the guidance of a talented choreographer named Jake Taylor (Jordan Fisher), with whom an unexpected romance begins to blossom in this endearing dance movie from Netflix.

Teen Beach Movie (Disney+)
A pair of modern-day, avid surfers (Ross Lynch and Maia Mitchell) whose romance is on the rocks find themselves magically transported into the world of Wet Side Story, a 1960s-era musical about teen beachcombers in a rivalry with a young biker gang.
Why It's A Good Option for Jordan Fisher Fans: In 2013's Teen Beach Movie, Disney Channel's Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello-inspired riff on their own High School Musical concept, Jordan Fisher plays care-free surfing gang leader Seacat, a role he reprises in the 2015 sequel, also available on Disney+, for more singing and dancing under the sun.

Grease Live! (Crackle)
After an unexpected reunion following their summer romance, bad boy greaser Danny (Aaron Tveit) and good girl transfer student Sandy (Julianne Hough) try to win each other's hearts by learning to be more like one another, without much help from their own cliques, at Rydell High School in the late 1950s.
Why It's A Good Option for Jordan Fisher Fans: The success of Teen Beach Movie might have helped Jordan Fisher land the role of Doody in Grease Live!, Fox's live adaptation of the beloved musical performed in 2016 in front of a studio audience, which received special praise for Fisher's acoustic rendition of "Those Magic Changes."

The Secret Life Of The American Teenager (Hulu)

To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (Netflix)
Just as her romance with Peter (Noah Centineo) has blossomed from a façade into the real thing, Lara Jean (Lana Condor) receives an unexpected visit from a boy of her past, who is also another recipient of one of her infamous love letters.
Why It's A Good Option for Jordan Fisher Fans: While you will still not see much song and dance out of Jordan Fisher, succeeding the role of John Ambrose McClaren from Jordan Burtchett, you will at least see teen drama of a much lighter fair in To All The Boys: P.S.

Why It's A Good Option for Jordan Fisher Fans: For an even lighter, and probably less relatable, look into life of the American teenager, try Liv and Maddie, an otherwise funny hit Disney Channel sitcom which later features Jordan Fisher as Holden Dippledorf, Liv's "cuool" (a mixture of cute and cool) crush and occasional singing partner.

A socially challenged forensic anthropologist (Emily Deschanel) and an ego-driven FBI agent (David Boreanaz) investigate corpses of an almost exclusively skeletal nature in a partnership that eventually shows signs of being more than professional.
Why It's A Good Option for Jordan Fisher Fans: While Jordan Fisher only shows up in one episode of the hit Fox crime procedural Bones (Season 11's "The Strike of the Chord"), it is easily one of the more musical of the series as it depicts the questioning of a college a capella team (also featuring Pentatonix's Mitch Grassi and Scott Hoying) whose leader has been found dead.

Teen Wolf (Amazon Prime)
A bite from a werewolf makes an average high school student (Tyler Posey) stronger, faster, more popular, and also the target of many strange occurrences in his hometown.

Archibald’s Next Big Thing (Netflix)
An optimistic chicken named Archibald Strutter (creator Tony Hale) finds himself on a series of curious adventures that take him far away from home.
Why It's A Good Option for Jordan Fisher Fans: As something for the whole family to watch, Archibald's Next Big Thing is an amusing and educational animated series which also stars Jordan Fisher as the voice of Archibald's talented brother Finly, who is often characterized by the headphones he wears on a regular basis.
