“Awkward’ Star Beau Mirchoff Joins “Wizards of Waverly Place” Movie

Beau Mirchoff is trading in his “awkward” high school drama for some magical wizardry.

The “Awkward” star has landed a lead role in the “Wizards of Waverly Place” reunion movie special! So who will Beau be playing?

He will take on the role of Dominic, a handsome and mysterious wizard who may not be as sweet as he seems. Uh oh, we smell some romance trouble involving Alex, Mason and Dominic!

The special follows the Russo family and friends as they head to Tuscany, Italy, to meet their long-lost relatives. When Alex (Gomez) attempts to prove she’s more than a carefree young wizard, she inadvertently conjures a spell that creates a “good” Alex and an “evil” one.

When she’s roped into a charming young wizard’s foreboding plan to take over the world, Alex must find a way to save her family and humankind, which leads to a battle between the two versions of herself on the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise and Gregg Sulkin will reprise their roles and the movie will launch on Disney Channel in early 2013. The cast is back working right now and we love this pic of them on set that surfaced this week!
