'Wizards of Waverly Place' actor boards coming of age drama

British thesp Gregg Sulkin (“Wizards of Waverly Place”) has landed the leading role in coming of age indie drama “Affluenza.”

The film, produced by Lookbook Films and directed by Kevin Asch, and will begin filming next month in New York City. “Affluenza,” inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby,” takes place in an upper class Long Island suburb in the summer leading up to the financial meltdown of 2008.

Sulkin stars in the upcoming Quentin Lee movie “White Frog and Camilla Dickinson,” based on the novel “Camilla” by Madeleine L’Engle. He also has recurring roles on “Pretty Little Liars” and “Melissa & Joey.”

Sulkin is repped by UTA & D2 Management.
