Jordan Stephens has landed a role in new E4 drama 'Glue'.
The Rizzle Kicks singer will make his acting debut later this year in the home-grown drama series set in the English countryside, created and written by Skins' Jack Thorne.
The 'Lost Generation' hitmaker is just one name among the many young talents from British film, TV, stage and music who have been picked for the murder mystery show.
Jessie Cave, best known as Lavender Brown in the 'Harry Potter' franchise, 'Submarine' star Yasmin Paige, Callum Turner from ITV drama 'Leaving', Charlotte Spencer of 'Line of Duty' fame, 'Fresh Meat' season three newcomer Faye Marsay, 'Starred Up' actor Tommy McDonnell, Bristol Old Vic graduate Billy Howle, and 'Waterloo Road' star Tommy Lawrence Knight have all been cast in the upcoming show.
They will also be joined by Kerry Fox ('Bright Star'), Jonny Owen ('Shameless'), Kierston Wareing ('Luther'), and Steve Oram ('Sightseers').
Sophie Gardiner, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor, commented: "The team at Eleven have pulled together an incredible cast for Jack's thrilling scripts - the line-up reads like a roll-call of some of the brightest up-and-coming talent around. We can't wait for them to bring our bold new series to life. Brace yourselves for a trip to the countryside... E4-style."
The show is set in small farming village Overton, where bored youngsters risk their lives by playing deadly games and when the body of a local teenage boy is found underneath a tractor, everyone is forced to confess their darkest secrets, changing the face of their small community forever.
'Glue' is scheduled for release in the autumn of 2014.
