Tron Finds Lead

01.07.2009

And just like that, another star is born. Garrett Hedlund has been cast as the lead in the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic TRON. The sequel, long referred to as TRON 2, or TR2N, is now simply called TRON as well.

Producers cast their search far and wide for the effects-laden film's lead, once considering the likes of Ryan Gosling and Chris Pine for the role. Looks like they were feeling generous, choosing instead to cast relative unknown Hedlund into the sudden spotlight. Previously a supporting actor in films like ERAGON and GEORGIA RULE, Hedlund is almost certainly on the road to becoming a household name with this new role, a position which many Hollywood insiders have had him tapped for for a while now. I should know because I'm a Hollywood insider. If you don't believe me ask my friend, he'll tell you.
