Jordan Fisher Will Guest-Star On ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’

Broadway star Jordan Fisher announced on Tuesday that he will guest star on the upcoming episode of the Disney+ hit series, ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,’ which is coming out this Friday. 

The show has been very popular on Disney+ since its debut in 2019; it received critical praise and has produced one of the biggest breakout stars of 2021, Olivia Rodrigo. The series also won a GLAAD Award in 2020. 

Fisher is confirmed to portray Jamie Porter, a talented music producer and older brother to Gina Porter, played by Sofia Wylie. Fisher has starred in many TV series and movies, and he made his Broadway debut in 2016 with the role of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton in the hit musical, Hamilton.

Recently, Fisher has appeared in The Flash on CW, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You on Netflix, and many more. In 2020, he earned the title role in another Broadway hit, Dear Evan Hansen. The singer-actor recently announced that he will reprise the role of Evan on Broadway when it reopens later this year. 

Fisher isn’t the only Broadway star who got a role in the Disney+ series. Two other Dear Evan Hansen stars, Andrew Barth Feldman and Roman Banks joined the cast of ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ at the beginning of Season Two. Feldman plays the French transfer student at East High and Banks plays Howie, the love interest of Kourtney (Dara Reneé).

    Shakespeare in School: Boring or Brilliant?

    Over the course of my four years in high school English classes, I had to read many Shakespeare plays.
