There’s more than one famous star in the Swift household. Taylor Swift’s brother Austin is an actor, and while he’s been in just a few movies so far (notably I.T. and Live by Night) his next role will pair him up with someone you’re probably familiar with: Tammin Sursok. Fans of Pretty Little Liars probably know her best as Jenna Marshall. No matter what, we’re pretty excited.
Sursok actually co-wrote the film with her husband, Sean McEwen, who’ll be taking on the role of director. So surely the movie means a lot to her, and she’d make sure that she was acting alongside the very best.
The movie is a comedy called Whaling, and according to The Wrap — which first broke the news — it’s a road comedy about estranged siblings who reunite after the death of their mother. Swift will be playing the role of a small-town hustler who runs into the pair. It sounds a bit grim, but we have a feeling that it’ll include more than a handful of extremely funny moments.
Swift has had a pretty busy year so far. Live By Night, a crime drama set during the Prohibition era, came out this January.
He also just wrapped up a mystery film called Cover Versions. The movie stars talents like Drake Bell and Katie Cassidy, so he was definitely in good company on set.
We’re just so excited that Taylor Swift’s younger brother is carving out such a successful career for himself, and we can’t wait to see him on the big screen. It’s pretty safe to say that he’s part of one talented family.
