If you're thirsty for Jeremy Allen White, the good news is you'll be hearing from the actor sooner than you think.

After leading The Beara series that follows James Beard Award-winning chef Carmy as he attempts to transform his family's Chicago sandwich shop in the wake of his older brother's suicide, it looks like the roles are flooding in. Not only did The Bear receive the green light for a second season, but Allen White is set to appear alongside Zac Efron as Kerry Van Erich, in an A24 wrestling drama. Then there's the sci-fi love story Fingernails, where he's been tapped as the boyfriend of Jessie Buckley.

What is Fingernails about?

Set in a world where scientists have discovered a way to measure love, institutions are now helping couples determine whether they're a true love match. When Jessie Buckley's character goes to work at one of these institutions as an assistant to Trevor, a scientist dedicated to the findings, she begins to question her relationship with her partner Ryan, played by Allen White, who has been dubbed her certified love match.

Who is involved?

As mentioned, Jessie Buckley will lead the film, while Jeremy Allen White has been tapped as her life partner Ryan. Wish he was ours. Anyway, moving on. Riz Ahmed will star as the mysterious and rather ominous sounding Trevor.

Meanwhile, Christos Nikou famed for his 2020 directorial debut Apples will helm the film, with a script he co-wrote alongside Stavros Raptis and Sam Steiner. Cate Blanchett's production company Dirty Films will have a hand in production, alongside FilmNation Entertainment. So there's that too.

Is there a release date?

With Fingernails set to begin production later this year, there's no word yet on a release date. Watch this space, keep your eyes peeled, etc.

Shouldn't you be on the list?
