David Henrie Set to Play Ronald Reagan in New Film

davidhenrie-012115David Henrie is set to bring one of America’s presidents to life.

According to THR, the 25-year-old will play a young version of Ronald Reagan in a new biopic which takes place before the actor became a US president. Reagan is told from the point of view of a KGB officer keeping tabs on Reagan since his days as an actor, SAG president and staunch anti-communist.

The indie filme is adapted by Space Cowboys’ Howard Klausner from two biographies by Paul Kengor. No director has signed on yet but David tells THR, “It’s a universal film with universal values and principles.”

David also shared his excitement on instagram saying, “Woooohoooo! So excited for this and blessed to play such an important figure in our nations history. I’ll be playing lifeguard Reagan… Oh boy short shorts here I come haha.”

Congrats David!
