    We Finally Know Who’s Playing John Ambrose In The “To All The Boys” Sequel And People Are Ready To Forget Peter Kavinsky

    Peter Kavinsky is quaking.

    I think we can all agree that To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was the most adorable movie of 2018.

    So it was completely unsurprising when Netflix officially announced in December that it would also be adapting the sequel, P.S. I Still Love You.

    But the announcement had people freaking out for one specific reason — it implied Netflix had recast John Ambrose McClaren, who appeared very briefly in a TATBILB mid-credits scene played by Jordan Burtchett.

    You’ll probably remember that John Ambrose was one of the boys who received a love letter from Lara Jean in the first movie, and without spoiling too much about the sequel’s potential plot, he becomes a much more significant character in book two (and in Lara Jean’s heart).

    Since then, we’ve been given no clues as to who’ll be playing John Ambrose in the second movie, although Lana Condor did tell BuzzFeed News’ AM to DM that it had to be someone “with a good heart”.

    But on Thursday, Netflix and Lana finally revealed who’s been cast to play John Ambrose. Please welcome to the stage Mr Jordan Fisher!

    Jordan is probably best known for his roles in Fox’s live musicals — he played Doody in Grease and Mark in RENT.

    Of course, people were freaking the hell out about the casting.

    IM READY TO LOVE JOHN AMBROSE MCCLAREN WITH ALL MY HEART

    *Jordan Fisher gets casted as John Ambrose McClaren* Me:

    I’M SO HAPPY FOR HIM AND I’M SO GLAD THE CASTING DIRECTORS DECIDED TO BE INTELLECTUALS EVERYONE SAY THANK YOU JENNY HAN EVERYONE SAY THANK YOU PS I LOVE YOU EVERYONE SAY THANK YOU TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE FRANCHISE THANK YOU JORDAN FISHER THANK YOU

    And it looks like Jordan himself isn’t too chill about the news either.

    I’m losing my mind. My heart is so full.

    But mostly people are ready to reconsider their allegiance to Peter Kavinsky.

    sorry but who in their right mind is going to root for peter now when jordan fisher is RIGHT THERE https://t.co/Nd13vtPgLC

    y'all really had to go and cast JORDAN FISHER?? literally anyone else and i would have stayed firmly planted supporting my mans peter k, but you brought in jordan fisher. i see you....

    Like, Peter K is seriously shaking.

    jordan fisher is shaking the table as john ambrose my god they really expect us to root for kavinsky after this??

    how do they expect me to root for peter kavinsky when JORDAN FISHER PLAYS JOHN AMBROSE...................

    I can't root for Peter when Jordan Fisher is playing John Ambrose. I just can't.

    OK, time for us to all rewatch To All the Boys a million times and enjoy stanning Peter K while we can.
