Who Is HSM:TM:TS Star Matt Cornett And What's His Net Worth?

Matt Cornett has been acting for the past decade, but recently started making waves in the industry after being cast as E.J. Caswell in Disney+'s hit show "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series."

In a 2021 interview with MOOD magazine, Cornett told the publication he always enjoyed theater growing up in school, but only realized he wanted to pursue a career in acting after he heard an ad on the radio looking for actors. The Arkansas-born talent has since starred in a number of TV films and episodes of Nickelodeon's "Bella and the Bulldogs." However, it wouldn't be until 2019 when he would gain himself a worldwide fanbase due to landing himself the main role in "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series."

With that being said, Cornett revealed that Caswell wasn't actually the character he auditioned for. "I actually originally auditioned for Ricky Bowen who's played by Joshua Bassett," he shared with MOOD, adding, "I went in for that audition and felt good about it, but I didn't hear anything for about two or three months." Despite not getting the part he hoped for, he bagged himself a different role that still managed to take his career to new heights.
