Ansel Elgort Set to Portray Young John F. Kennedy In 'Mayday 109'

Ansel Elgort is about to step into the shoes of John F. Kennedy!

The 23-year-old actor has joined the cast of Mayday 109, where he will portray a young JFK, according to Deadline.

The upcoming film will follow John‘s early life and his feats of heroism as a Navy captain during WWII where he was involved in one of the most dramatic rescues in Naval history.

“We could not be more excited about Ansel coming aboard. Not only is he a tremendous actor, he embodies the charisma, athleticism and looks of a young JFK…With Ansel, we’ve found our perfect JFK,” producer Basil Iwanyk said.

Pictured inside: Ansel stopping by the Build Series while promoting Baby Driver on Tuesday (June 27) in New York City.
