The Last Airbender's Aang heading to Cowboys and Aliens

Well, virtual unknown Noah Ringer now has TWO credits he can put on his IMDB page.

After being plucked from obscurity for M. Night Shyamalan’s LAST AIRBENDER adaptation (which if he f*cks it up, so help me), Ringer now has been snatched up to appear in COWBOYS AND ALIENS by someone who was apparently very impressed with the AIRBENDER trailer.

COWBOYS is being directed by Jon Favreau, and is amassing quite a cast to date. A ways back Daniel Craig replaced Robert Downey Jr. as the lead, Olivia Wilde then signed on and finally Harrison Ford announced he was playing a gunslinger in the film just last week.

There’s no word on who exactly Ringer will be playing, but if I had to venture a guess, it will be a character that employs some of his wicked martial arts moves because if not, why wouldn’t they find a child actor more experienced at, you know, acting?

Extra Tidbit: It takes more than ass-kicking skills to be Aang, that's all I'm saying. Sorry, I'm very protective about this source material.

I would have to guess that he would probably be playing the son of a rail-worker. probably "adopted" by one of the cast after his parents were killed by the aliens.....just please please please don't let him be another Short Round.

Aang better have charisma. So far all they seem to be spotlighting in the trailers is the special effects and not so much the characters. I hope Aang retains his childlike enthusiasm.

This is good news (I think). I haven't seen this kid in anything, The Last Airbender being his only movie and not being released yet, but if M. Night saw something in him and if Favreau see's something in him, then he can't be bad. This movie is going to kick so much ass. Can't wait to see the chemistry between the whole cast especially between Craig and Ford. And also, no picture of Wilde?
