Model Joan Smalls to make her acting debut

ACTING DEBUT: Joan Smalls

MODEL JOAN Smalls is set for her first acting gig in the Netflix original feature Set It Up, with Claire Scanlon at the helm.

Smalls will join Zoey Deutch, Lucy Liu, Glen Powell, and Taye Diggs in the romantic comedy.

The film centers on Harper (Deutch) and Charlie (Powell), two overworked and underpaid assistants who are wasting their youth working for superiors who treat them like dirt. The two concoct a plan to solve this problem by setting up their respective bosses with each other but things start to go awry as they discover that what started out as a harmless plan could lead to some unanticipated consequences.

While details on Smalls' role are not widely known, we do know that she will play Charlie’s girlfriend Suze.
