It’s not a Monday anymore.
You may know the hilarious and adorkable Olan Rogers from his YouTube channel, where he shares his stories of ghosts in bathroom stalls, embarrassing childhood memories, and the general trolling of his neighborhood. It may, then, be surprising you to find out his new role… Walt Disney.
The Nashville actor announced his new part with surprise.
“So back when I did my online audition for Star Wars I got asked to audition for two other projects and some how landed both of them. One I can’t announce yet but the other I was asked by one of the band members from Relient K to try out for a independent feature shooting in Nashville about the early years of Walt Disney.”
“The script was solid! I auditioned for it not expecting to get the part but somehow got the lead hahaha This should be a good learning experience and something completely new for me to try. They even bought a Model T for this film which I got to drive. Pretty Excited to apart of a legit independent feature and even more excited to learn!”
As Dreamers Do is an independent film about Mr Disney’s early life just as he was getting into the film business. According to the film’s official Facebook page, it is expecting release in the early spring.
Tyler Hayes is set to play Flora Disney, Walt’s mom. She is not only an accomplished keynote speaker, but an achieved musician who wrote songs for Little Big Town, Gloriana, Hilary Duff, Jesse McCartney, Bebe Winans, Rob Thomas (Matchbox 20), For King and Country, and Tina Arena.
