When Mitchel Musso was charged with a DUI in October, which he’s since pleaded not guilty, it was questioned whether the 20-year-old would return to his Disney XD show “Pair of Kings.” We now have our answer, Mitchel is out and Adam Hicks from “Lemonade Mouth” and “Zeke & Luther” is in!
Adam will join the cast for the third season as a new long lost brother. Adam Bonnett, Senior Vice President, Original Series, Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement, “Adam’s comedic talent will add a new dimension to an already successful series and we’re eager to introduce the new character to our viewers.”
He continued, “Mitchel is a part of our family and for him, it will always be about versatility and doing different things on an artistic level. We have tremendous respect for his talent and we thank him for his contribution to the series.”
Mitchel Musso said, “Since I was 12, Disney Channel has been an extended family to me and I want all of my friends there to know that I appreciate the opportunities that have come my way and I look forward to focusing on acting and music projects that are in development and sharing the news with my fans around the world soon. I wish the cast, producers, and crew nothing but success on the next season of ‘Pair of Kings.’”
Mitchel will continue to lend his voice to “Phineas & Ferb,” but we’re guessing this also means an end to “PrankStars.”
What do you think of Adam replacing Mitchel?
