Blake Jenner is having a big moment in his career, as he hit the red carpet to premiere his new film, Billy Boy, on Tuesday, June 12.
“It is dark!” Jenner exclusively told Us Weekly of the film in Beverly Hills. “[Fans are] gonna see that there’s not a weak link in the cast and everybody brought their A-game. I think people will be really impressed and take away something from it. There’s something for everybody.”
Jenner, 25, actually wrote the crime thriller and stars in the project with his ex-wife, Melissa Benoist. “I think there’s something beautiful about being able to look back on any sequence of events that you’ve been through and come out grateful for it,” he added to Us, reflecting on his life post-divorce. “I feel like it’s a yearbook of experience, as is this movie for me. So, I’m nothing but happy.”
Jenner was supported by several of their former Glee stars at the event, including Chord Overstreet, Harry Shum, Becca Tobin and John Stamos. “It’s good to see all of them. It’s nice to know we’re all still tight,” he added.
Benoist, 29, meanwhile, was across the country making her Broadway debut in Beautiful-The Carole King Musical in NYC.
The actor and Supergirl actress met on the Fox series and played Ryder and Marley, respectively. They married in a secret ceremony in 2015, but she filed for divorce in December 2016 citing irreconcilable differences.
Benoist is currently dating her Supergirl costar Chris Wood. The couple attended the 2018 Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday.
