Check out my favorite casting rumor in recent history: Thomas Sangster, known to me as Liam Neeson's son Sam in Love Actually, might be playing Tintin in the Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson project.
This is all speculation so far, and the Daily Mail is far from the most credible source, but apparently Sangster has been traveling to L.A. for "preproduction test sequences with both directors" and that "an executive who worked with Sangster in Los Angeles" told the Mail, "Thomas seems to be the one. He was just great, but I'm not certain if anything has been finalised yet." The one certain casting decision is that Andy Serkis will play Tintin's sidekick Captain Haddock.
This kid — who is now 17, if you can believe it! — couldn't possibly be more endearing. What do you think about this casting choice? Would he make a good Tintin?
