Disney+ has cast “Annabelle Comes Home” and “Training Day” actor Michael Cimino in the lead role of its upcoming “Love, Simon” series.

The series adaptation is set in the same world as the 2018 film starring Nick Robinson. Cimino will star as Victor, “a new student at Creekwood High School on his own journey of self-discovery, facing challenges at home, adjusting to a new city, and struggling with his sexual orientation,” according to the show’s logline. “When it all seems too much, he reaches out to Simon to help him navigate the ups and downs of high school.”

He joins the previously announced Ana Ortiz, who will star as Isabel, Victor’s mother. Robinson will produce and narrate the series. James Martinez, Isabella Ferreira, Mateo Fernandez, Johnny Sequoyah, Bebe Wood, George Sear, Anthony Turpel and Mason Gooding round out the ensemble cast.
