Tyson Ritter (The All American Rejects) to Star in "Midnight...

Posted by - 11:41 PM on 12/17/13
Tyson Ritter of The All-American Rejects will be playing Gregg Allman in the upcoming biopic Midnight Rider.
Considering Ritterís rock & roll background itís no surprise that he will sing and play piano and organ in the film, while Russell reportedly showed off his slide guitar chops during his audition and will be singing and playing in the movie as well. This is far from Ritterís first go at acting either: He recently appeared in a multi-episode arc on the NBC show Parenthood, and is a recurring character onBetas, a new comedy streaming on Amazon.

Cool that acting is taking off for him.

Hopefully the Rejects stay semi active at least though.

to say the least. and its funny that the first line in the release is "its no surprise". Feels like a preemptive reaction

He does an all right job playing an annoying character on Parenthood at least.

Will he really be singing? Like Jamie Fox-Ray/Jaoquin Pheonix-Walk the Line? If he can pull off the voice I will be thoroughly impressed.

There's no way that guy wasn't a huge cokehead around the Move Along time period. I haven't seen any recent pictures or interviews, etc with him, so I can't comment about him now.

I wonder if Gregg Allman had any say in the casting.

Dude went on stage wearing nothing but a speedo and body glitter here once. I have no idea what he was on, but that guy was definitely on drugs at some point.
