Reality TV gets, um, real for multi-faceted performer Corbin Bleu, who makes his Hallmark Channel debut this weekend with the premiere of Love, For Real co-starring Chloe Bridges, Taiana Tully and Scott Michael Foster. In the film, Bleu stars as Marco Tate, a bachelor looking for love on a dating show titled Heart Choices, only to find not all his bachelorettes are there for the same thing. For Bleu, his entrée into the world of Hallmark movies couldn't have been better. "It kind of came about out of nowhere and it all wrapped up very quickly," he told MediaVillage in an exclusive interview. "I wasn't looking to do a Hallmark movie specifically, but the film's director, Maclain Nelson, and I had worked together several years ago on this improv musical-theater television show, and it was so much fun! We'd been looking to work together again, and he texted me to say, ‘I'm directing a Hallmark movie, would you want to be a part of it?' I'm like, 'Okay, let's do this!'
