The title character of Lee Daniels’ new family drama Star (Jude Demorest) is an 18-year-old aspiring singer straight out of foster care. She and her sister Simone (Brittany O’Grady) and friend Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) form a singing trio. Along the way they meet talent manager Jahil Rivera (Benjamin Bratt) and a handsome football player, quarterback Hunter Morgan.
Hunter Morgan is portrayed by Chad James Buchanan. He’s appeared on Mary + Jane (Gary), Jane the Virgin (McBaskets), Awkward. (Wilson), Grey’s Anatomy (Brian), and Glee (Bartender), among others. He gets his good looks from his mother Melissa, former Miss Ohio and Miss America first runner-up. When Chad left Columbus, Ohio for New York, he became a model and worked for Calvin Klein and Versace. Star premieres on Wednesday, December 14 at 9pm on FOX, right after Empire.
“My childhood, adolescence and high school days are unusually important.” If there has ever been a time that I developed a drive, a hunger, and a burning passion to make something of myself, it was then. I developed the necessary anger and angst to leave everything behind and see more. The use of traveling readjusted my imagination through reality, and instead of thinking how things may be outside my little world, I saw them as they were. Sending love to David @chosenmodelmanagement for making it all happen. #flashbackfriday #hollister #babyme #versaceversace
