Jeremy Allen White to Star in Upcoming Rom-Com ‘After Everything’

(After Everything)

This one is bound to be a tearjerker.

Jeremy Allen White—we know him (and love him) as Lip Gallagher on Showtime’s Shameless. For the past eight seasons, White has portrayed the rugged, tough-skinned, diamond-in-the-rough, raised in the poverty-stricken South Side of Chicago, Lip Gallagher. However, this fall, the star will be bringing an entirely different character to the big screen.

Love is sick. Watch the full trailer for #AfterEverything now (link in bio)!

In the film, White stars as Elliot, a carefree New-Yorker who crosses paths with the sensible Mia, portrayed by Hot Summer Nights actress, Maika Monroe. Just as the relationship between the young lovebirds’ begins to blossom, Elliot receives a life-changing diagnosis. Amidst the chaos, the new couple soon learns the weight of Elliot’s illness is almost as tough as navigating the daily complications of young love.

If you shed a few tears while watching A Walk to Remember or The Fault in Our Stars, you might want to grab a box of tissues for when this beautiful love story hits theaters. After Everything, written and directed by Hannah Marks, is set to be released on October 12.
