Back in April, it was announced by Page Six that Franco was to play Michael Glatze, a one-time gay-rights activist who subsequently "renounced his homosexuality after turning to religion following a health scare."
Now, according to Pink News, Carver is to join the film's cast as Tyler, a young man who becomes romantically involved with Glatze.
Charlie Carver is well known for playing Ethan in Teen Wolf, the MTV supernatural drama series starring Dylan O'Brien (The Maze Runner). In Teen Wolf, the 26-year-old's twin brother, Max Carver, stars as Aiden.
Currently, both brothers star — as, respectively, Scott and Adam Frost — alongside former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston in The Leftovers, the HBO fantasy drama series created by Damon Lindelof.

The film also stars Zachary Quinto (Star Trek) as Glatz's ex-boyfriend, while Emma Roberts will play his female 'love' interest.
