Netflix’s ‘He’s All That’ Adds Rachael Leigh Cook and Matthew Lillard


The She’s All That remake He’s All That, starring TikTok star Addison Rae and Tanner Buchanan, has a new home, along with two big stars attached to the film!

Deadline exclusively reported that Netflix has picked up the rights for the remake for reportedly north of $20 million. Additionally, original stars Rachael Leigh Cook and Matthew Lillard are set to return, with Cook taking on a new role as Rae’s character’s wise and caring mother.

Rae will star as Padgett Sawyer, a role inspired by Freddie Prinze Jr.’s Zackary Siler. The gender-swapped remake will be told from a teenage girl’s point of view and follows an influencer who accepts a challenge to turn the school’s biggest loser into prom king.

Madison Pettis, Peyton Meyer, Isabella Crovetti, Annie Jacob and Myra Molloy will also star. Netflix will release the film globally later this year.

Megan has been passionate about writing since she was little and has been passionate about all things pop culture and nerdy since almost as long. Joining Nerds and Beyond in 2019, she also graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Journalism. Megan is constantly binge-watching shows and finding new things to obsess over. 9-1-1 and Marvel currently reign as the top obsessions. You can find her on Twitter @marvels911s if you ever want to discuss some certain firefighters.
