Glen Powell joins the cast of Universal’s upcoming RIDE ALONG 2. Powell joins big names like Benjamin Bratt, Ice Cube, Ken Jeong, Kevin Hart and Olivia Munn. Plot details for the “Ride Along” sequel are scarce but the first film centered on a security guard who had to prove himself to his girlfriend’s cop brother, so decides to ride along on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta.
Powell is a relative newcomer to big budget features, having appeared in mostly short films. He did nab a small role in “The Dark Knight Rises” but his upcoming projects are sure to make him a household name. Powell is set to appear in “The Expendables 3” opposite Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, and Jet Li, among others.
