Thomas Sangster, the drumming, now awkwardly-aging kid from Love, Actually, has reportedly taken the role of douchebag-haired protagonist Tintin in the Steven Spielberg/Peter Jackson adaptations of the comic. Wikipedia describes the eponymous hero as a young reporter somewhere between 16 and 18, so 17-year-old Sangster certainly fits the bill age-wise. And since the films will use motion-capture technology á la Beowulf, there's still a chance to digitally edit out the sinister, elf-like qualities of the actor that make me fear for my soul every time I stare into his large, empty eyes.
