Spencer Boldman (laboratory rats) was tapped for a recurring role opposite Kumail Nanjiani and Murray Bartlett on the Hulu limited series Immigrant (working title), of Pam and Tommy designer Robert Siegel.
Immigrant is the true story of Somen “Steve” Banerjee (Nanjiani), the Indian-American entrepreneur who started Chippendales. The series will detail the crazy, dark and comedic crime story behind the single male revue that has become a cultural phenomenon.
Boldman will play Lance McCrae. Dubbed “the ultimate specimen,” Lance McCrae is the hottest Chippendales dancer of them all, not to mention the inspiration and star of choreographer Nick De Noia’s (Murray Bartlett) biggest and most ambitious routine.
The cast also includes series regulars Annaleigh Ashford and Juliette Lewis, as well as recurring/guest stars Quentin Plair, Andrew Rannells and Nicola Peltz.
Siegel and Nanjiani serve as executive producers alongside Dylan Sellers, Jenni Konner, Matt Shakman, Emily V. Gordon, Nora Silver and Rajiv Joseph, who will write on the series with Mehar Sethi. Siegel and Konner serve as co-showrunners and Shakman will direct. Jacqui Rivera is co-executive producer and Annie Wyman is co-producer. 20th Television serves as the studio.
Boldman starred as Adam Davenport in all four Disney Channel seasons Laboratory rats. He also appeared in Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s comedy 21 jump street and starred alongside Zendaya in the Disney Channel Original Movie, Zapped. He recently appeared on the big screen in Robert Siegel’s Cruise, against Emily Ratajkowski and Sebastian Maniscalco. He is replaced by CAA and Millennium Artists.
