jeopardy winning kid gets lead role in movie

Congratulations, kid!

Jeopardy wiz kid Thomas Horn has been cast as the lead in director Stephen Daldry's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, based on Jonathan Safran Foer's novel.

Horn will star alongside Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock, who will play the kid's parents.

As we reported back in August, the story revolves around an intellectual, nine-year old tambourine playing kid who searches for a lock to match a mysterious key that his father left behind after his death in the World Trade Center on September 11.

Should be inneresting to see how the kid does. If he's half as good at acting as he is at Jeopardy, we should be in for a great performance!

Thoughts???

    ALL KIDS ACT THE SAME. THERE'S NO ARTISTRY THERE. #LAME DAKOTA FANNING WAS THE LAST KID WHO COULD ACTUALLY ACT.
