Adam Sevani is a triple threat—an accomplished actor, singer, and dancer, perhaps most notable for playing Robert “Moose” Alexander III in the Step Up series. Moose is a nerdy lighting design student who discovers his unconventional talent for dance. The New York Times praised Sevani’s performance as Moose for portraying a character who “might be the baddest nerd in movie history.” Despite mixed reviews, the film grossed over $150 million worldwide.
The first Step Up movie came out 14 years ago. It spawned four sequels: Step Up 2: The Streets (2008), Step Up 3D (2010), Step Up Revolution (2012) and Step Up: All In (2014). To date, the series has generated a total of $651 million in revenue.
Although some cast members have gone on to have successful careers, such as Channing Tatum who has starred in GI Joe and Magic Mike, Sevani has not had the same kind of success. Fans have been wondering what happened to this mega-talent.
