Leo Howard Cast As Young Conan In Conan The Barbarian image
Because we're trapped in this seemingly endless era of starting new franchises, we've been seeing a lot of child actors getting the chance to play superheroes. There was Young Kirk in Star Trek, Young Wolverine in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Young Snake Eyes in G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, and now Young Conan in Conan the Barbarian-- who, as it turns out, will be the same kid as Young Snake Eyes.

Leo Howard, who played that key role in the opening moments of G.I. Joe, will be playing the Conan role in the first 15 minutes of the new film, according to Latino Review. From there Jason Momoa, whose casting was announced last month, will take care of the actual muscle-bound part of the role.

You may have also spied Howard in small roles in Robert Rodriguez's Shorts or on something called Leo Little's Big Show. He's classing rising-star child actor material, but don't forget to take him seriously, because last time a kid from a Robert Rodriguez children's film got cast in something big, he turned out to be Taylor Lautner.
