Actor comedian Tony Cavalero is set to star as Dewey Finn in Nickelodeon’s reboot of SCHOOL OF ROCK. The small screen version of the 2003 film will follow the misadventures of Dewey, an out of work rocker who pretends to be a substitute teacher at a private prep school who teaches rock and roll rather than the ABCs. Jack Black starred as Dewey in the original film.
Cavalero is no stranger to TV, having appeared at various times on Modern Family, Hart of Dixie, and the short lived thriller series Aim High. Next up, Cavalero has been cast in the CBS Films comedy The DUFF, as well as rom-com Playing It Cool.
Cavalero is repped by Gersh and Truhett/Garcia Management.
