Austin Butler cast as the lead of Darren Aronofsky’s new film, “Caught Stealing”

Written by and based on the books by Huston, Caught Stealing follows Hank Thompson, a burned-out former baseball player, as he’s unwittingly plunged into a wild fight for survival in the downtown criminal underworld of ‘90s NYC.

“Darren is one of the most brilliant audiovisual storytellers in the world, and adapting these wonderful books by Charlie Huston for Austin to star was too exciting an opportunity to not be a part of,” said Sanford Panitch, President of Sony Pictures’ Motion Picture Group.

I don't get it. He's not a great actor and he's not ugly but I wouldn't say he's wildly handsome.

When Austin is descending into the "dark criminal underworld" of NYC, does he blackout& get violated by the "minions of the darkness" we can listen to his screams of orgasm, watch him act!! Will he sound like Elvis?

When the fuck are they going to remake America Gigolo for him

He’s actually a good actor.

Does he have the appropriate build to play a baseball player?

I don't know what to think about this guy. I thought he was very very good in Elvis. But he was horrific in public during his Oscar campaign. Doesn't even come off as a normal person. He came off way more unlikeable than widely criticized Kate Winslet and AnnE Hathaway.

A friend of mine fucked him years ago when he was in New Zealand filming Young Hercules.

Yes, r2! Even though he doesn't sound like Elvis in "Dune: 2" or recent interviews, just for you and your tiresome ilk Austin is going to revive the accent for this movie! Isn't that swell?!

r12 is feeling tired and emotional.

Caught Stealing is the first book in a trilogy. Does that mean it'll be a franchise?

I used to think he was cute when one or the other of you would post pics from whichever kids' series he was in. But his current '50s greaser look does him no favors. It's hard to think he's the same person.

R14, How should anyone here know?

R15, What are you referring to?

R7 Kate Winslet is widely criticized?

by Anonymousreply 17March 31, 2024 2:48 PM

I was wondering the same r17.

by Anonymousreply 18March 31, 2024 5:34 PM

People will say anything, r17, r18.

E.g., Austin was pretty normal in his "Elvis" PR run, as opposed to the ridiculous "horrific" description in r7.

R9, Austin Butler was not in "Young Hercules," FYI, Stupid.
