Joe Alwyn Lands Roles in 'Boy Erased' & 'Operation Finale'

Joe Alwyn has joined the casts of two highly anticipated movies – Boy Erased and Operation Finale!

The 26-year-old British actor – who is currently dating Taylor Swift – will team up with Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, and Lucas Hedges in Boy Erased.

Directed by Joel Edgerton, the coming-of-age drama will follow Jared (Lucas), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Nicole and Russell). At age 19, he is faced with an ultimatum: attend a gay conversion therapy program, or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith.”

Joe will also join Oscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley, Melanie Laurent, and Nick Kroll in Operation Finale, directed by Chris Weitz.

Operation Finale centers on “the capture of Adolf Eichmann (Ben), who was one of the major architects of the Holocaust. He organized the transport of Jews from countries all over Europe to concentration camps, where an estimated six million people died,” according to Variety. Joe will play Eichmann’s oldest son.

Joe is best known for his work in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, his first on-screen role.

Production for Boy Erased, set to hit theaters in 2018, begins today in Atlanta.

    He looks like he’s got the charisma of a throw rug. Not interested.

    Dating Taylor has nothing to do with him getting roles since she has no pull whatsoever in Hollywood. Joe is a talented actor which was evident in BIlly Lynn’s Log Halftime Walk despite the film not being great as a whole. It’s shame people can’t write articles about him without mentioning her name.

  • Gina

    You’re kidding right? You don’t think directors want to draw publicity to their movies by hiring Taylor’s latest boy toy? Don’t kid yourself. He may be talented, but sometimes that isn’t enough to get roles. He knew exactly what he was doing when he signed up to be Taylor’s latest “boyfriend.”

  • Kermit

    The news of a no-name actor being casted in some minor roles jot covered by EW, JJ and a bunch of news sites? That’s the benefit of being Taytay’s boyfriend. And he can’t have one news without her name being attached to draw attention. Pathetic

    News sites were talking about him before he started dating Taylor due to his breakout role in Billy Lynn. To be fair though, it’s only gossip sites like JJ, EW etc that mention her name in articles about him because they want to get hits.
