Now 34, Burnet features as a key supporting player in Pitch Perfect 3, enjoying several scenes with Hollywood A-lister Anna Kendrick.
His character, Theo, is a music executive who meets Kendrick’s Beca whilst her group the Bellas are on an international tour.He also shares the screen with producer DJ Khaled, who plays himself.
Speaking at the LA premiere, Burnet told Nothing But Geek: “It’s completely overwhelming – this is chaos, I’ve never been in a situation like this!
“I’m incredibly flattered and gracious about it. As a guy who’s coming into the third instalment, I was welcomed, and that was very sweet.”
