Deadline has reported that Hawaii’s Evan Mock has scored his first acting role. The triple threat artist/skater/model will be featured on HBO Max’s reboot of Gossip Girl, the show about teens in New York’s Upper East Side, and—being Hawaiian—Mock is about as lower West side as you can possibly get. Gossip Girl will premiere sometime next year, and so far there’s no word on what his role in the series will be.
Mock made a huge splash last summer with a ridiculous full-pipe powerslide clip that not only went viral, it went Worldstar Hip Hop viral (virtually unheard of for a legit skate clip that doesn’t involve someone getting knocked out or getting buck naked). Mock talks the talk, and now he reads the scripts too!
