You’re used to seeing Gregg Sulkin all over his GF, Bella Thorne’s Snapchat, but get ready to see him return to the small screen tonight!
Gregg Sulkin is heading to Freeform! He’s set to guest star on tonight’s episode of Young & Hungry and will take on the role of Rick, Gabi (Emily Osment) and Sofia’s upstairs neighbor who, naturally, Sofia (Aimee Carrero) finds very attractive. We chatted with Gregg about the guest spot, and we had to mention another Freeform show that’s coming — his girlfriend, Bella Thorne‘s Famous in Love!
“She is such a great actress, so why not,” Gregg told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, saying he’d jump at the opportunity to work with his girlfriend on screen. “I have seen her auditions, I have seen her on set, and she is such a professional. She is so good at what she does, and I think when it comes to my career, it is all about choosing the right project and making sure that whatever project I do is number one, good and to be done for all the right reasons!”
Of course, he’s doing this role sans Bella, and we may just se him more than one episode — although that’s not yet confirmed. “You are going to have to ask (creator) David Holden that,” he said laughing. “But obviously I love the show, and I have been friends with Emily for years . . . so I have been a fan before I came on it!”
As for what else he’s working on, he has many talents — but don’t expect him to sing! “Unless they do a Mama Mia film where they dub everybody’s voices, you will not see me singing,” he said. “I think my talents are on the creative sides of stuff — story telling and characters as a whole. I always feel comedy is something I do very well. It is a natural gift.”
Young & Hungry airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Freeform.
HollywoodLifers, do you hope to see Bella and Gregg work together on screen?
