Pete Davidson, Movie Star? Actor to Star in Semi-Autobiographical Movie by Trainwreck Director

Pete Davidson‘s life is hitting the big screen.

The Saturday Night Live comedian, 25, is set to star in a semi-autobiographical movie cowritten and directed by Judd Apatow, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
