    Anyone remember when this dude was on Gossip Girl playing con artist? I thought he was pretty bad actor but maybe it was writing. He was great in TSN and wow now working with Leo for Eastwood movie? This is huge. Congratulations.

    This boy is excessively tall and young for the role.

    He is six foot five, so he’ll make Leo look small. Leo is tall but it’s a fairly big height difference them when in reality their characters were basically the same height.
