'Love, Simon' Star Nick Robinson Falls for a Stripper in 'Krystal' Trailer (Exclusive)
By John Boone
"I have an announcement. I'm in love!"
Nick Robinson is going from butterflies in his stomach and first kisses in Love, Simon to a very different kind of crush: In Krystal, he plays 18-year-old Taylor Ogburn, a sheltered Southern boy who falls for an "ex-hooker-stripper-junkie-alcoholic" with a heart of gold (played by Rosario Dawson). In order to woo her, Taylor starts attending AA meetings -- despite never having had a sip of alcohol in his life.
ET has the exclusive trailer for the R-rated comedy, which includes madcap wheelchair escapes, brunch brawls and sage advice from none other than Kathy Bates. Krystal was directed by William H. Macy and co-stars Bates, Felicity Huffman, Tip "T.I." Harris and The Flash's Grant Gustin. "Chicks like her don't fall for guys like you. You're a good guy. Chicks marry good guys. They fall in love with bad boys," Gustin's big bro advises Taylor, to which he replies, "I can be bad."
Krystal is Macy's third feature film, written by Will Aldis and produced by Dan Keston and Rachel Winter (who is Oscar-nominated for Dallas Buyers Club). The movie opens in theaters on April 13.
