Jake Paul Wasn't Originally 'Bizaardvark's Male Lead!

Jake Paul totally nailed his role in Bizaardvark, but did you know he wasn’t originally cast as the male lead in the show?

Before Jake joined the Bizaardvark, the show was actually called Paige & Frankie and revolved around two friends trying to become famous through their comedic music.

While the concept of the show was similar, Jake wasn’t a part of the Paige & Frankie cast and the male lead role was given to actor Steffan Argus.

When the show got picked up by Disney Channel, the concept changed and Steffan was unfortunately cut from the cast.

“I filmed this pilot. I was so excited about it. It was so much fun and had an amazing cast and crew…the role was perfect. I was like a rocker kid,” Steffan explained to YSBnow.

He continued, “It ended up getting reworked and the pilot didn’t go forward the way it was orignally planned. I was no longer a part of it which was really hard for me. That was like getting so close and it felt so real. But everything happens for a reason, and it’s really hard to understand that when you’re in the moment but it leads you towards exactly what you’re meant to do.”
