Robert Hoffman Gets The Beat

Robert Hoffman (“Step Up 2 the Streets”) has joined the cast of the indie ’80s comedy “We Got the Beat” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story revolves around Brad, a high school football player who sets out to prove he’s more than just a jock by quitting the team and turning his heavy metal band into a pioneering boy band.

Hoffman will play Garth, the boy-toy and live-in lover of Brad’s mother. Filming begins this month in Massachusetts, with Jon Artigo directing based on his scripts.
