We can’t help but compare Sarah Hyland and Lea Michele, after Sarah came under fire yesterday for mocking Lea’s red-carpet poses. For instance, Lea’s uptight, while Sarah doesn’t seem to subscribe to the Hollywood bullshit. And just as Lea and boyfriend Theo Stockman have split up, we find out that Sarah’s making a Disney Channel Original Movie with her guy, High School Musical 3 star Matt Prokop. And their movie Geek Charming actually sounds pretty cute!
It seems to be a cross between A Cinderella Story and She’s All That, as per the official synopsis:
Hyland plays Woodlands Academy’s most popular junior who accidentally drops her “it” handbag in the mall fountain. When film geek Josh Rosen (Prokop) comes to the rescue, Dylan thanks him by agreeing to be the subject of his documentary for the school film contest. While Dylan hopes the film will help her campaign to win the Blossom Queen crown, a title she claims is her only life goal, Josh really plans to make a hard-hitting exposé about popularity. As he gets to know her, he discovers the real Dylan.
So Sarah’s “it” bag = glass slipper, and Matt’s character is unable to resist the movie convention of lying to the girl he likes and making her feel like he used her. But it’s a DCOM, so things will shake out OK in the end!
The two have been dating since 2010, so we’ve gotta applaud them for deciding to work together; usually you hear the story the other way around, that two young actors started dating since they already played love interests or whatnot. And from the on-set photos, they seem to be having a lot of fun.
