Stephen Amell has a hit show on The CW so it only makes sense to have his younger cousin play the lead in a new TV series on the same network, right? Robbie Amell is starring on The CW's hit show The Tomorrow People which has garnered some critical acclaim and has a small cult following that praises Robbie and the show itself.
The Tomorrow People is a show about several young people who have select powers such as telekinesis, the ability to teleport and to speak to one another using telepathy. Robbie Amell plays the lead, a slightly awkward high schooler who gets recruited by The Tomorrow People to help them fight the forces of evil.
Robbie Amell has had some minor roles in television shows such as True Jackson VP and Revenge, and has starred in a couple of minor roles in movies such as Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and the more recent Scooby Doo movies. The Tomorrow People is his first role in which he is able to make a name for himself. And he sure delivers on that front. From his charisma to bringing characters to life with his likability, Robbie is posed to become one of Hollywood's next biggest young adult actor in this and age.
The Tomorrow People is the perfect outlet to display Robbie Amells skills as an actor so give it a chance if you're looking for a new show to pike your interest or if just want to see if Robbie Amell has the acting chops to pull off a lead role. Either way, give him a chance.
