Cody Linley, who celebrated his 20th birthday on Friday, is set for his Broadway debut, RadarOnline.com has learned. He’ll be starring in a remake of Over Here! which hopes to open on the Great White Way early next year.
The former Hannah Montana star and real-life Miley Cyrus boyfriend had also planned to star in a Disney Channel movie, Starstruck.
“The start dates on both kept shifting and Over Here! was contratually in first position, so he had to give up Starstruck,” a rep for the actor said. Sterling Knight now has that lead role.
Dick Van Dyke is the intended top-billed star for the World War II-themed Over Here! but the recent death of his beloved companion of 30 years, Michelle Triola Marvin, has made that uncertain.
“Cody is very so excited about going to Broadway,” the rep said.
