‘Love, Simon’ Star Nick Robinson Falls for a Stripper in ‘Krystal’ Trailer (Exclusive)
“I have an announcement. I’m in love!”
ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT – Nick Robinson is going from butterflies in his stomach and first kisses in Love, Simon to a very different kind of crush: In Krystal, he plays 18-year-old Taylor Ogburn, a sheltered Southern boy who falls for an “ex-hooker-stripper-junkie-alcoholic” with a heart of gold (played by Rosario Dawson). In order to woo her, Taylor starts attending AA meetings — despite never having had a sip of alcohol in his life.
ET has the exclusive trailer for the R-rated comedy, which includes madcap wheelchair escapes, brunch brawls and sage advice from none other than Kathy Bates. Krystal was directed by William H. Macy and co-stars Bates, Felicity Huffman, Tip “T.I.” Harris and The Flash‘s Grant Gustin. “Chicks like her don’t fall for guys like you. You’re a good guy. Chicks marry good guys. They fall in love with bad boys,” Gustin’s big bro advises Taylor, to which he replies, “I can be bad.”
Krystal is Macy’s third feature film, written by Will Aldis and produced by Dan Keston and Rachel Winter (who is Oscar-nominated for Dallas Buyers Club). The movie opens in theaters on April 13.
Nick visited BUILD Series to promote Love, Simon. Photos of the event will be added soon! Check out the video of the cast discussing Love, Simon below.
Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year-old Simon Spier it’s a little more complicated: he’s yet to tell his family or friends he’s gay and he doesn’t actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, “Love, Simon” is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love. Watch Berlanti and the cast as they discuss the film.
A second trailer for Love, Simon has been released! Love, Simon is set to be in theaters from March 16.
