Hey there, thanks for reading this little fact file I have put together about the Pitch Perfect cast. I have previously written an article with five facts about the movies, the link for which you can find here if you want to check it out.
Pitch Perfect one first graced our scenes in 2012 and cemented itself as a classic movie that is sure to be loved by plenty of fans, both present and future. Following the success of this, Pitch Perfect 2 was released, with just as much humor, catch phrases and an amazing soundtrack as the first. Pitch Perfect 3 will be released in 2017, but here are a few facts about the cast we can explore before that happens. Let's start with Number 1:
1. Adam Devine's Great Audition
Adam Devine (and all the other Pitch Perfect cast members) had to do a singing audition for the role. Adam Devine is a real-life singer, even auditioning for The Voice in the US, but his audition song was far from orthodox. Adam performed the theme song for the TV show Full House. The producers must have liked it, as he was given the role of Bumper in the movies.
2. Skylar Has Talent
Skylar Astin, who plays Jesse the lead singer of the Treblemakers is a very talented man. He has starred in Spring Awakening on Broadway alongside Lea Michele (Glee) and Jonathan Groff (Frozen). He seems to have a natural singing and dancing ability. Some people are so lucky.
3. Ester Dean Is A Big Deal
Ester Dean stars in Pitch Perfect as Cynthia Rose. However she is no stranger to the music profession. Ester has written songs for Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Clarkson, Rhianna and more. The Bellas sing a little section of Rihanna's song "S&M" — a song that Dean helped write!
4. Rebel Wilson's Unfortunate Illness (That Was Good For Us)
Rebel Wilson only became an actress after she contracted malaria in Africa. While lying in a hospital bed, Rebel suffered from hallucinations, one of which was that she was an actress. When Rebel recovered she returned to her native Australia to become an actress. Good thing too — Rebel Wilson is an amazing actress and the world is a better place with her bringing comedy into it.
5. Hana Mae Lee Is A Korean Folk Singer
Hana Mae Lee's character of Lily in the Pitch Perfect movies is a very quiet one. Usually whispering I her answers her character grew to be a fan favourite. However Hana Mae Lee is also a Korean folk singer. She even auditioned for the role using her own traditional tune.
All of these actors and actress' are multi talented. I do't even have one talent let alone multiple. This probably has a lot to do with why fans love the Pitch Perfect movies so much. Perhaps it makes their portrayals even better.
I for one am thoroughly looking forward to Pitch Perfect 3 to be released in 2017. In the meantime here is a video of the deleted scenes from Pitch Perfect 2. I hope you enjoy!
