Lafayette native Mark St. Cyr has landed a role in the upcoming "High School Musical" TV reboot.
Production has started for "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series," which is a project for Disney+'s streaming service scheduled to launch later this year.
According to a Disney news release, the 31-year-old Cyr "will play Mr. Mazzara, East High's somewhat robotic S.T.E.M. teacher. His belief in preparing students for the future often leads him to butt heads with Miss Jenn, who would rather sing about life than live in the real world."
The original "High School Musical" TV movie first aired on Disney in 2006, making stars out of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens. Two sequels soon followed and a "HSM4" movie is currently in the works.
This new series "picks up nearly 15 years after the original movie aired, at the real-life location where it all began: East High. It follows a group of students as they count down to opening night of their school’s first-ever production of 'High School Musical'," according to the Disney news release.
St. Cyr has several acting credits to his name including the 2017 feature film "Marshall", and TV series "Sneaky Pete" (2015) and "Doomsday" (2016). He's also guest starred on "Chicago P.D." and "After After Party."
