Netflix has signed a deal with Addison Rae to star in new streaming movies. Rae just made her acting debut in Netflix’s “He’s All That,” which is a gender-swapped version of the 1999 high school rom-com “She’s All That.”
“Getting the chance to work with Netflix was such a life-changing experience for me, and now to be able to prolong our connection is beyond my wildest dreams,” Rae added. “I’m ecstatic to be able to work with such a talented group, and I’m looking forward to developing projects while honing my acting skills.”
“Addison’s Rae’s charm and promise are apparent, as shown by ‘He’s All That’ and her already ardent fan base,” said Naketha Mattocks, director of the family film for the streamer. We’re ecstatic to be a part of this next chapter in her growing acting career.”
Within the first month of its release, Netflix expects more than 55 million households to watch “He’s All That.” According to Netflix, the film has topped the charts in 78 countries, including Brazil, France, and Saudi Arabia.
Rae has over 83.3 million TikTok followers, making her the platform’s third most popular user. She has 39.2 million Instagram followers and over 5 million Twitter followers. In March, the 20-year-old Louisiana native released her debut single, “Obsessed.” She was nominated for the MTV Movie and TV Awards’ breakthrough social star award in 2021.
Rae portrays a social media influencer in “He’s All That,” in which she seeks to turn one of the school’s misfits (“Cobra Kai’s”) into prom king.
