This is what dreams are made of.
The cast of the Lizzie McGuire Disney+ series is adding another actor from the original Disney Channel cast.
Adam Lamberg will reprise his role as David “Gordo” Gordon in the upcoming project.
This is what dreams are made of, Lizzie McGuire fans! Disney+ just announced that Adam Lamberg will reprise his fan-favorite role as David “Gordo” Gordon, a recurring character in the upcoming Disney+ series. Lamberg originated the role of Lizzie’s best friend in the Disney Channel series, where Gordo’s intelligence, creativity, and wry observations about middle school life made him a bit of an outcast—except to his BFFs.
“Gordo was an essential piece of the puzzle to what made the original Lizzie McGuire so authentic and beloved. I couldn’t imagine the series without him. I can’t wait for fans to see what he’s up to 15 years later and how he fits into Lizzie’s adult world.”
– Hillary Duff
Production on the series began earlier this month. As previously announced, original cast members Hallie Todd, Robert Carradine, and Jake Thomas will be reprising their roles as Jo McGuire, Sam McGuire, and Matt McGuire, respectively.
Original Lizzie McGuire series creator Terri Minsky returns as showrunner and is an executive producer with Duff and Rachel Winter. Ranada Shepard is the co-executive producer.
