High School Musical’s Corbin Bleu will guest on The Fosters this coming March, so I guess I owe everyone an apology for trying to shut down that high school. It was a high school devoted solely to singing, dancing, and, to a lesser degree, basketball! How did they even get accreditation? Fortunately for Bleu, he will be appearing in the role of Mercutio in The Fosters’ musical-within-a-show Romeo & Juliet. Bleu and fellow guest-star Ashley Argota recently also co-starred in a production of Romeo & Juliet: Love Is a Battlefield produced by Fosters co-creator Bradley Bredeweg. I guess I didn’t correctly anticipate the nationwide uptick in high-school-musical-related job opportunities. It was shortsighted, and that is completely on me.
