Do you ever find yourself missing heartthrob Ethan Craft from "Lizzie McGuire?" Well then you're in luck, because Clayton Snyder is coming home to the Disney Channel! The actor, now 28, is joining Disney XD’s newest show “Second Star.”
Snyder announced his involvement through his Instagram, where he wrote, “GUYS!! I’ve been involved with a Disney XD project, Second Star.” He added to the announcement saying, “I play the oldest of three musically-inclined siblings who inherit their grandfather's recording studio, Second Star. With mom and dad out of the picture, I've been running a coffee shop to keep us afloat and keep us together. Family is everything... but so is music... And yes, I siiiing!”
Who knew Ethan Craft could sing that whole time? Snyder played Craft on the much-loved "Lizzie McGuire" series, which ran for 62 episodes. While his character lacked intelligence, he was kind and friendly to everyone — and Lizzie totally had a crush on him for basically the whole series.
The addition of music will make the show a half-hour dramedy/musical that likely hopes to follow in the footsteps of “Hannah Montana” and “High School Musical” by making catchy radio-ready tunes. Snyder will be joined by actors Haley Michele Gorman, Nickolas Eiter and Stephen Tyler Howell. Howell will be taking the role of Bucky, a barista, while Gorman and Eiter will play the younger siblings in Snyder’s charge.
GUYS!! I've been involved with a Disney XD project, Second Star, and it's going to be premiering on Maker TV this upcoming Tuesday, April 5, 4pm!! Here's a blurb from our Facebook page on what the show's about... "Second Star was created on the idea that a musical television show could employ quality radio-ready music, realistic character situations, and charming characters, while also exploring the relevant issues of life and growing up. Second Star does all that while also staying new and fresh every week, making it the perfect show for Disney XD." I play the oldest of three musically-inclined siblings who inherit their grandfather's recording studio, Second Star. With mom and dad out of the picture, I've been running a coffee shop to keep us afloat and keep us together. Family is everything... but so is music... And yes, I siiiing!
