The Selection Dumps its Entire Cast (except the black guy)

Sean Patrick Thomas to return for new ‘The Selection’ pilot

Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Sean Patrick Thomas (Save the Last Dance, Ringer) will not only reprise his role for The Selection – but that he is the only original cast member returning!

Thomas will play Sylvan Santos, “a close adviser to the current queen and an expert in royal etiquette who advises the participants in the competition”.

Earlier this week we reported that Aimee Teegarden had been offered the lead in another CW pilot, Oxygen, it’s now been confirmed that she will not take part in The Selection.

Are you sad to see Ethan Peck (10 Things I Hate About You), William Moseley (The Chronicles of Narnia) and the others go?


can we turn this into a YA/Book/Writing Post?
