When Glen Powell moved to Los Angeles, it was at the suggestion of Hollywood super agent Ed Limato. The Austin, Texas native had started acting professionally as a young teenager, and during his senior year of high school, he was cast in The Great Debaters (2007), a film directed by and starring another one of Limato’s clients Denzel Washington. “He came up to me [on set] and told me I reminded him of a young Richard Gere,” Powell recalls. “I thought it was just some random guy. I didn’t know he represented Richard Gere.” While in Los Angeles for the film’s premiere, Powell met with Limato again. “I showed up in jeans, a belt buckle, and a cowboy hat,” he says with a laugh. “Ed walked in and he goes, ‘Did you just come off a farm?'”
Powell was initially reluctant to leave his life in Texas behind; he’d had friends go to Los Angeles only to return to after waiting tables for five years. “It seemed like something where, unless you were born into it, it wasn’t really feasible,” he explains. But Limato was persistent and Powell made the move after finishing his freshman year at University of Texas. A year later, Limato passed away. “It went from really feeling like I had the town wired to, ‘Oh shoot, I’m all alone out here,’ Sandra Bullock in Gravity-style.”

Hester and Chad might be a ~thing~ now, but Glen Powell thinks Chad and Chanel are the true OTP of this show.
The most recent episode of “Scream Queens” introduced us to our new favorite TV ship: Chester. The delightfully weird and wonderful pairing of Chad and Hester (the newly minted Chanel No. 6) is quickly becoming one of our favorite things about the show. Two necrophiliacs talking dirty in a graveyard? Yeah, we ship it. (We don’t think we’ll ever look at Lea Michele quite the same ever again.)
But Chester’s twisted romance may be short-lived when Chad realizes just how disturbed Hester really is. “Chad is kind of a weird dude, but Hester is maybe the weirdest person that Fox will ever allow to be on TV ever again,” Glen Powell told MTV News.

Mexico-born actor-singer Diego Boneta (Rock Of Ages) has been cast as one of the male leads in Scream Queens, Fox’s comedy-horror series created by Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan.
Also cast as a regular in the first installment of the anthology series slated for fall is Glen Powell (The Expendables 3). It revolves around a college campus that is rocked by a series of murders. Details on the characters are sketchy, but Powell is believed to be playing a popular guy who dates the hottest girls on campus, and Boneta is a bookish but handsome guy. He and Powell join an ensemble cast that includes Lea Michele, Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Nick Jonas, Keke Palmer, Joe Manganiello, Ariana Grande and Abigail Breslin.

Glen Powell is quickly on his way up the Hollywood ladder, especially with a feature film like “The Expendables 3” out on Friday. We caught up with him in his beautiful Los Angeles home, where he also had friends over who had more than enough great things to say about him. His welcoming and charming attitude is what will steal hearts on the big screen.
You’re from Texas! How different has life been since moving from TX to LA?
The hardest part was making the decision to move out to LA. I have a pretty killer existence in Austin. I was born and raised there. People laugh harder, the girls are all the marrying type, and the sunsets can’t be beat. It is hard to imagine a better plot of the Earth than Austin. But I think Los Angeles gets a bad rap. I can surf and snowboard in the same weekend if I want to. And I can always find someone down for an outdoor concert or camping in the sequoias on the fly. I’ve been here about six years and I think the key to making anywhere home is the people you surround yourself with. The pace of life is much quicker in Los Angeles and it can be quite the grind, but the best part is that my folks are still back in Austin. So if Hollywood ever starts wearing me out, I know there is a margarita waiting for me on a dock somewhere back home.
