Several sources are reporting that Thomas Sangster is set to play the intrepid Tintin in Steven Spielberg’s and Peter Jackson’s motion-capture adaptation of the classic Belgian adventure comic. Everyone is using phrasing like Spielberg and Jackson May Have Found Their ‘Tintin’ and Young Brit Thomas Sangster Cast as Tintin?, so we’ll keep the question mark.¬† Most articles are featuring photos of the youngster Sangster from Love Actually or Nanny McPhee, but the actor is now closer to Tintin’s actual/fictional age (16 or 17?) The most recent photos I could find are from his guest appearance on Doctor Who last year, and there’s a ton of them here. At 17 he still looks amorphously tweenish (and eerily already a little bit like a motion-capture version of a real kid). I can’t imagine anybody else being more perfect for the role, can you?
