Pitch Perfect reunion for Astin

Skylar Astin will be back for the Pitch Perfect sequel (Rex)

Skylar Astin is to be reunited with Anna Kendrick, after he signed on for the Pitch Perfect sequel.

The 26-year-old will warm-up his vocal chords as he reprises his role of a cappella singer Jesse, the love interest of Anna's character Beca in the first film.

He is the latest cast member to sign on for the next instalment, alongside Anna, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow and Adam DeVine, with newcomers including Hailee Steinfeld and Katey Sagal, reported Deadline.

Elizabeth Banks, who appeared in and produced the 2012 musical comedy, will make her directorial debut with the sequel, which is expected to be released in May 2015.

She posted a photo of herself with the Barden Bellas including Rebel, Anna, Brittany and Hailee in matching Bellas jackets, writing: "365 days till Pitch Perfect 2 is released!!"

Elizabeth has remained tight-lipped about the plot, saying: "All I can say right now is that they will be graduating seniors this time around, rather than incoming freshmen."

Skylar, who started in theatre, has since appeared in comedies such as 21 And Over and Cavemen, as well as a role in TV comedy Ground Floor.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Scorpio:

Don't deny yourself pleasure. It's important to indulge your sensual side. When you don't, you become irritable. Take this opportunity to splash out on new clothes. Soak in a scented bath. Get a massage. Enjoy a long nap. Do whatever your heart desires. If anyone dares complain you aren't working hard enough, maintain a stony silence. You're incredibly intimidating, especially when you're quiet. Anyone who has become too reliant on you needs to be more self sufficient.More
