13 Reason's Star Steven Silver is no stranger to "heavy teen dramas.
Steven has just booked the lead role in The Obituary of Tunde Johnson: an indie film directed by Everybody Hates Chris creator Ali LeRoi.
"Set in Southern California, the film centers on Tunde Johnson (Silver), a queer, black prep school senior who finds himself in an endless loop of police brutality. Soren O’Connor (Neville) is Johnson’s all-American athlete boyfriend who hides his sexuality from both his conservative father and society by maintaining a relationship with Tunde’s best friend Marley Meyers (Peltz)."
Production is scheduled to begin this week in Los Angeles.
