Jaz Sinclair, whose young career is marked best by roles on RIZZOLI & ISLES and REVOLUTION, will be taking on the role of Radar’s somewhat crunchy but totally lovable girlfriend, Angela, in the film adaptation of John Green’s PAPER TOWNS!
In the beginning of the novel, Radar (who will be portrayed by Justice Smith) is the only one of his friends in a seemingly normal teen relationship, though he’s often busy trying to keep Angela away from his house so she doesn’t learn about his parents’ somewhat embarrassing collectibles.
Here’s what John Green had to say about the casting choice:
They’re so great together, in fact, that director Jake Schreier joked about a spinoff:
@JazSinclair @johngreen @JusticetheSmith @wyckgodfrey @klausner Jaz is amazing. Such a wonderful group of actors. Radar/Angela spinoff?
