The Actor Playing Seth Cohen In 'The O.C.' Musical Is Known More For His 'Pretty Little Liars' Shade Than His Nerd Cred
My fellow Pretty Little Liars fanatics, have you also been wondering where the hell Lucas, who might be Charles DiLaurentis, has been hiding? Seriously, the last time we saw Hanna and Caleb's former bestie he was posing as Santa Claus in "How the A Stole Christmas" and acting super shady (as always). Well, Lucas' whereabouts have finally been revealed. OK, not really (and I apologize for leading you on), but it was just revealed what the actor who plays Lucas has been up to. Brendan Robinson is playing Seth Cohen in The Unauthorized O.C. Musical , Entertainment Weekly reported Tuesday. That's right, Lucas is taking on the role of the beloved Seth Cohen.
The musical comes from the creators of Cruel Intentions: The Musical and will focus purely on the pilot episode, all while incorporating music from all four seasons. Joining Robinson on stage for one night only on Aug. 30 at The Federal Bar in Los Angeles is The Flash’s Rick Cosnett as Sandy Cohen, Jersey Boys’ Drew Seeley as Luke Ward, Step by Step’s Christine Lakin as Kirsten Cohen, BuzzFeed editor Jarett Wieselman as show creator Josh Schwartz, and former O.C. star Autumn Reeser will take on Julie Cooper.
Now, as for the four main characters, Nashville's Tilky Jones is Ryan Atwood, Cruel Intentions: The Musical's Molly McCook is Marissa Cooper, Awkward's Greer Grammer is Summer Roberts, and, of course, Robinson will play Seth.
So do you think Robinson will be able to handle the role of the adorable Seth? I mean, we know he's really good at being all creepy in the town of Rosewood, but what about taking on a character played by Adam Brody who will forever be loved? Can he accomplish such a task? Yes, my PLL fans, he totally can. Here's some proof:
He Can Sing
Now, I don't have a video of him singing, but according to The O.C. 's musical creators, they obviously cast people who can sing and act. So, yeah, I'm guessing Robinson can sing.
He Has That "Geeky" Factor
If you're taking on Seth Cohen, you have to be geeky, which Robinson has shown through Lucas many times.
He's Super Adorable
Adorableness is key when playing Seth.
He's Already Channeling Seth
See? He knows his lines.
I don't know about you, but I have all the faith in the world that Robinson will play Seth Cohen wonderfully.Images: troiastings (2)/Tumblr
