VAMPIRE DIARIES Star Paul Wesley Joins Brittany Snow, J.K. Simmons, Jane Lynch In the Comedy THE LATE BLOOMER

Paul Wesley, of the long-running CW series THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, has joined the cast of the comedy THE LATE BLOOMER for director Kevin Pollack.  The film is a chronicle of the life of writer Ken Baker, who was afflicted with a hormonal disorder at a young age that kept him from fully maturing until age 27.

Wesley’s casting is just one of several actors who have signed on to co-star.  The film has also added newly-minted Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons (WHIPLASH), Jane Lynch (GLEE), Johnny Simmons (THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER), Blake Cooper (THE MAZE RUNNER), Kumail Nanjiani (SILICON VALLEY), and many more.  You can read the full press release below:

Los Angeles, CA (August 25, 2015)– Los Angeles-based production outfits Eclectic Pictures andIneffable Pictures have announced the start of production on the feature film THE LATE BLOOMER. The film, directed by Kevin Pollak, in his directorial debut, totes an all-star ensemble cast including: Johnny Simmons(THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD), Maria Bello (PRISONERS, A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE),Brittany Snow (PITCH PERFECT 2), Jane Lynch (Glee, WRECK-IT RALPH), JK Simmons (WHIPLASH, OZ), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), Beck Bennett(Saturday Night Live), Paul Wesley (Vampire Diaries), Ken Marino (WE’RE THE MILLERS, WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER), Ileana Douglas (GOODFELLAS),Charlotte McKinney (JOE DIRT 2: BEAUTIFUL LOSER), Vanessa Ragland(BANDITOS), Blake Cooper (THE MAZE RUNNER), and Lenora Crichlow (Being Human).

THE LATE BLOOMER is based on the life story of noted journalist and author Ken Baker, who battled with a skull base tumor that wreaked havoc on his hormonal system and prevented him from entirely going through puberty until age 27. Baker’s experience inspired his non-fiction book Man Made: A Memoir of my Body. Using the book and Baker as a comedic jumping off point, THE LATE BLOOMER tells the story of Pete Newmans, whose arrested development makes him an ideal counsel for restraint as a sex therapist. As he simultaneously falls in love and surgery cures his condition, Pete wrestles with a flood of emotions, as well as the reactions of friends, family and enemies as he copes with the wrenching changes in his life and body. Penned by Joe Nussbaum, Paul A. Kaplan & Mark Torgove, and Kyle Cooper & Austyn Jeffs, it’s a story of remarkable freshness and verve, wit and heartbreak—made all the more immediate and relatable when you realize this actually happened to somebody.

Paul Wesley on Nina Dobrev Leaving The Vampire Diaries: ‘It’s Never Going to Be the Same’

With the exit of star Nina Dobrev, many The Vampire Diaries fans are wondering what’s next for the show – and Dobrev’s costar Paul Wesley is right there with them.

“Obviously there’s a great nostalgia. It’s never going to be the same,” Wesley, 32, told PEOPLE at The Humane Society of the United State’s Los Angeles Gala on Saturday night.

“I have no idea what they’re going to do next year, literally. Apparently they have a plan. I don’t know what the plan is. It’s going to be really interesting. It will be interesting to see what they come up with for the brothers.”

But Wesley, who was clad in a Penguin suit for the gala, says Dobrev is happy to be moving on.

“I know that she’s really happy. I know that she wants to move on and start a new chapter of her life which is entirely respectable,” he says.

But is Dobrev’s departure just the first of several to come, including Wesley’s himself?

“I think everything has to come to an end, man. First of all I’m playing a 17-year-old. I’m 32 years old,” he says.

“So theoretically, if I were to stay on the show for say three more years, I would be a 35 year old playing a 17-year-old, which is almost double. It’s more than double. It’s literally more than double!”
