Add "Holywood leading man" to the list of professional accomplishments that Troye Sivan has had in his career so far! 

The 26-year-old pop star is getting ready to front Paramount+'s upcoming coming-of-age film Three Months, and we'll all be able to watch it sooner than you think! 

Coming to the streamer February 23, Three Months tells the story of Caleb (Sivan), "a South Florida teen who loves his camera, his weed, and his grandmother," according to the official description. "On the eve of his high school graduation, everything changes when he’s exposed to HIV. While he waits three months for his results, Caleb finds love in the most unlikely of places."

"Florida, 2011. Caleb Kahn gets a text from a hot one-night stand that he never thought he’d hear from again. He has just tested positive for HIV. Caleb remembers the condom broke. how long until Caleb finds out if he has it too? 3 months," Sivan wrote in a recent Instagram post where he shared the news of the film's upcoming release. (Sivan has starred in other films like the 2018 conversion therapy drama Boy Erased and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and he played the title character in the South African Spud franchise.)

"[Three Months] is a movie we made against all odds throughout a global pandemic," he continued. "It’s out on [Paramount+] on Feb 23. It stars Ellen Burstyn, Lou Gossett Jr., Viveik Kalra, [Brianne Tju], and myself. It’s brought to you by the producers of Juno and Up in the Air (two of my fave movies!) and is directed and written by my friend and fellow Nice Jewish Boy [Jared Frieder]. I care about it a lot. Can’t wait for you to meet Caleb!"

Written, directed, and executive produced by Jared Frieder (in his directorial debut), Three Months also stars an absolutely stacked cast that includes Viveik Kalra, Brianne Tju, Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn, Judy Greer, Javier Munoz, Oscar winner Louis Gossett, Jr., and Amy Landecker. 

And if you thought Sivan was only got flex his acting muscles for this project, think again. In true pop icon fashion, he's also writing two original songs for the film. Talk about staying booked and busy! 

Three Months is expected to premiere on Paramount+ on February 23!
