Luke Evans

If you’re not familiar with Luke Evans, well, give it a few months, because the Welsh actor is about to pop up in a jaw-dropping spread of blockbusters and genre features that will handily cover the gamut of potential cinematic interest. To recap, Evans will soon zoom into theaters as the baddie in Fast & Furious 6, then he’ll shoot straight for your J.R.R. Tolkien-loving heart as Bard the Bowman in the next two Hobbit films, eventually he’ll sink his teeth into your movie-going neck as the lead in Dracula Year Zero, and now he’s going to fly back from the afterlife in the new The Crow reboot.

Deadline Hollywood (via ComingSoon) reports that the in-demand Evans is currently in negotiations for the lead role in F. Javier Gutierrez‘s new Crow, a production which has long sought for a suitable lead (with rumored potential stars including Tom Hiddleston, Alexander Skarsgard, James McAvoy, and Bradley Cooper).

Just how badly did the Crow team want Evans? The outlet reports that the film’s production start date has been moved to early next year, so as to fit into Evans’ packed schedule. For a guy who once starred as “Benjamin’s Father” in a short spoof titled Don’t Push Benjamin’s Buttons, becoming Hollywood’s new it guy probably doesn’t feel so bad.
