Bad Boys’ Sequel Adds Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig and ‘Riverdale’s’ Charles Melton (News Variety)
Bad Boys 3 cast is starting to come together. The film has just added Alexander Ludwig, Vanessa Hudgens, and Charles Melton to star alongside Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. Hudgens, Ludwig, and Melton are playing a highly-specialized police unit that clashes with Smith and Lawrence’s characters on the job. More on the Bad Boys 3 cast below.
Per their story, Alexander Ludwig (Vikings), Vanessa Hudgens (The Princess Switch), and Charles Melton (Riverdale) are the latest additions. The three young actors play “a modern, highly specialized police unit that collides with the old school Bad Boys (Smith and Lawrence) when a new threat emerges in Miami.” The story goes that Smith and Lawrence have been doing “chemistry tests” with various actors for four specific roles, and Ludwig, Hudgens, and Melton were the most impressive. The fourth role is apparently that of the villain, which is still being worked out.
