Jack Harlow: the rapper, apparent boyfriend of Dua Lipa and actor. The First Class artist has been revealed as a star in the upcoming White Men Can't Jump remake, due to arrive in cinemas this May.

Hours before the Grammys aired yesterday, US streaming service Hulu announced the 17 May release date and revealed a 30-second teaser of Harlow in his acting debut alongside Sinqua Walls.

Some fans aren't very happy with Harlow's casting, commenting on YouTube, "Would have rather seen Woody and Wesley back together again in Old men can't jump", "All this did for me is to want to rewatch the original. Thanks," and "The most unnecessary remake in Hollywood history. This movie is gonna bomb hard".

In a March 2022 Rolling Stone cover story, Harlow spoke about landing the part that sees him in Woody Harrelson's shoes: "They think I’d be a perfect fit for it."

Last month, beloved corn chip brand Doritos unveiled a Super Bowl advertisement featuring Harlow. 

In the clip, Harlow arrives in a limo surrounded by fans and paparazzi. A paparazzo asks him, "Is it true about the love triangle?" Harlow looks at the bag and replies, "Maybe." The paparazzo mishears and says, "Baby? You’re having a baby?"

Sharing the advertisement spot on Instagram, Doritos noted, "The real love triangle is us, @jackharlow, and Doritos BBQ".

"Dua Lipa, I'm tryna do more with her than do a feature (do it)," Jack Harlow rapped on his track entitled - you guessed it - Dua Lipa, from his second album, released last year, Come Home The Kids Miss You.  

Page Six reports that Jack Harlow and Dua Lipa are now dating. After the two met in person at the Variety Hitmakers lunch in Los Angeles in November, sources tell Page Six that they've been in "constant communication" ever since.

The sources also claim that Harlow "was very interested in her and was going to strongly pursue [the romance]." Apparently, Harlow flew to New York to see Lipa after her Z100 Jingle Ball in December. Sources saw the duo eat lunch together after arriving separately the next day.
