Noah Centineo's new role may sound familiar. The internet's favorite paramour will be starring in The Perfect Date, a movie that follows a well-trodden narrative. Centineo will play a tech mastermind who creates a fake boyfriend app to raise money for his college tuition. That sounds somewhat similar to the West Wing storyline that had Laurie (Lisa Edelstein) working as a call girl to pay for law school. It's also not unlike the plot of To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Centineo's other big Netflix film.
The Netflix PR account SeeWhatsNext tweeted Friday that the streaming site will release The Perfect Date this summer. The movie also stars Riverdale's Camila Mendes and Austin & Ally's Laura Marano. There is not a trailer yet for the movie, but you can peep a few production stills in the tweet, below.

Interestingly, this also won't be the first time Centineo has played an enterprising techie. He starred in the comedy Swiped last year as a college student who collaborates with his programmer roommate (Kendall Ryan Sanders) to create a hookup app. The money from the app is set to go to college tuition for the programmer. Some plots are just too good not to replicate!
Centino can currently be seen in the Freeform show Good Trouble, a spinoff of The Fosters. And, in due time, he will star in a To All The Boys sequel, also on Netflix.
