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.
