Wednesday Roundup: Alex Morgan goes to Hollywood

Also in today’s roundup, results out of South America and Africa from World Cup Qualifying

The trailer dropped today for a new Warner Brothers Home Entertainment feature film featuring the acting styles of USWNT star Alex Morgan, in the aptly titled “Alex & Me”.

This will be Morgan’s feature film debut, though she tried her hand at television acting with a brief cameo on Nickelodeon’s Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn in 2015, and developed her own television show on Amazon streaming called The Kicks, based on her popular book series.

The full synopsis for the film reads as follows:

“Teenager Reagan Willis (Siena Agudong) has one dream — to play soccer like her hero, Alex Morgan. Her bedroom is a shrine to all things Alex, including a life-size poster of the Olympic gold medalist. Yet in the Willis house, Reagan lives in the shadow of her prep football superstar brother, Logan. When Reagan fails to make the cut of the premiere local soccer club team and is humiliated by her rival Claire, she’s certain her ship has sailed. But after accidentally hitting her head, Reagan’s poster of Alex Morgan suddenly comes to life and everything changes!”

Alex & Me is available digitally on June 12 and on Blu-ray and DVD on June 19.
