“Shooting Stars” Actor Caleb McLaughlin Actually Got His Start in a Disney Broadway Fave
Caleb McLaughlin first came to fame with his scene-stealing role as Lucas on “Stranger Things,” and since then, his star has risen steadily. He appeared as Ricky Bell on BET’s “The New Edition Story,” Darius in “High Flying Bird,” Cole in Netflix’s “Concrete Cowboy,” and – most recently – as Dru Joyce III in the movie adaptation of Lebron James’s story, “Shooting Stars.”
With “Concrete Cowboy,” McLaughlin proved he can carry his own beside heavy hitters like Idris Elba, while in “Shooting Stars,” which premiered on Peacock on June 2, the 21-year-old shows he’s taking on Hollywood.
TV and movie acting is not where McLaughlin’s talents begin and end. He’s also a successful singer and stage-musical actor. While McLaughlin’s dating life remains a mystery (though, he has been linked to Ice Spice), there are other aspects of the actor’s life that he’s been an open book about. So, if you found yourself enthralled by his most recent performance in “Shooting Stars” and want to know what he’s like in real life, keep reading to find out.
