Dust off your halo and fluff up those wings, angels—we've got some heavenly casting news for you. According to Deadline, the long-gestating big-screen adaptation of Lauren Kate's young-adult novel "Fallen" has landed two leads: Addison Timlin and Jeremy Irvine!
Addison, whom you may recognize from Showtime's "Californication," will play Luce, while Jeremy of "War Horse" fame will portray Luce's enigmatic love interest Daniel.
Author Lauren took to her blog to hype the news, writing, "Their audition tapes are thrilling. I know you are going to love them on the big screen. Stay tuned for a Cam announcement..." SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Back in November, four strapping lads tested for the role of love interest Four in the big-screen adaptation of Veronica Roth's "Divergent." It seems producers liked what they saw from at least one actor, as Lucas Till is reportedly returning for another round, joined by two fresh faces.
Variety reports that "War Horse" star Jeremy Irvine and Alex Pettyfer (whom YA-adaptation casting directors just can't seem to get enough of) will also read for the role of the Dauntless faction member. The report indicates that none of the actors are considered frontrunners at this point for the role opposite Shailene Woodley. (Though it's hard to ignore the fact that Lucas is the only one from the first round to be called back.)
We kind of have a thing for Brits here at Hollywood Crush. So, in keeping with our time-honored tradition of naming them Hump Day Hotties, this week we are showing some love to "War Horse" star Jeremy Irvine, who is trotting along and quickly winning our hearts.
Check out this dreamy photo of Jeremy and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: The 21-year-old grew up in Cambridgeshire, England. He studied his craft at National Youth Theatre and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. He eventually dropped out of drama school and is now on the rise thanks to a high-profile role in the Steven Spielberg-directed film.
"The whole thing isn’t real to me yet. I’m still trying to take it in. I came from having no lines in the theatre to this," he recently told British newspaper The Mirror. "I wasn’t even getting call backs for commercials, so it has changed everything. How on Earth I managed to get into this movie is beyond me. I have no idea. I come from a small village in Cambridgeshire where not many people have gone on to do stuff like this."
