12 Moments From Dumplin' That Prove Bo Larson Is the Heartthrob We Deserve
If you haven’t watched Netflix’s Dumplin’ yet, we highly encourage you to add it to your queue ASAP. Not only does the dramedy have a soundtrack that is basically a Dolly Parton album (the new version of Jolene is just everything), but it boasts an impressive cast that truly brings Julie Murphy’s New York Times bestselling YA novel to life. And since there’s no doubt you’ll fall in love with Dumplin’s Bo Larson, it’s only a matter of time before you do the same with Luke Benward. The 23-year-old has been working in TV and film since 2002 and is best known for his roles in How to Eat Fried Worms, Good Luck Charlie, Minutemen, and most recently Life of the Party. He even (briefly) dabbled in the world of music when he was younger!
If you aren’t already infatuated with Benward, his role as charming Bo will definitely do the trick. The boy plans meteor shower viewing dates right out of the bed of his truck — we adore a thrifty romantic! He’s handsome (obviously), sweet, patient, and consistent — even when Willowdean pushes him away, he lets her know that his feelings will be there but he won’t press her. I’m not saying that he’ll replace your Netflix boyfriend, Peter Kavinsky, but he’ll definitely have you thinking that maybe more is merrier. I know I wasn’t the only Dumplin’ watcher to fall for that lethal combination of Southern twang and dimples, so join me in appreciating everything that Bo Larson brought to our screens.
