They then confirmed that Michael Cimino is joining the cast as Ethan, the new heartthrob at Sherman Oaks High. Darren says, “We got handsome nerd and cool jock covered” once Maitreyi answers the facetime call from Michael. Michael responds that he’s playing, “more of a smoldering bad boy.” Devi is going to have her work cut out for her, is what Maitreyi thinks.
