Toby Kebbell To Star In The Veteran
Though most people probably don't know it yet, British actor Toby Kebbell is one of the better under-30 actors working in Hollywood today. Though he's already set to breakout when he plays Abraham Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth in Robert Redford's The Conspirator and has both Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and The Sorcerer's Apprentice out this summer, it never hurts to have an indie war movie under your belt.
THR reports Kebbell is now set to star in The Veteran, a film by writer/director Matthew Hope. The film will see the actor playing a soldier who returns from a tour of duty in Afghanistan to uncover and conspiracy linking both the war on terror and the war on drugs. The film will co-star Brian Cox as well as lesser-known actors Ashley Thomas, Adi Bielski and Tom Brooke.
Kebbell first caught my attention in Guy Ritchie's Rocknrolla, playing the drug-addled rock star Johnny Quid and he has kept my attention since. Being cast in two blockbusters and a high-profile drama in one year is a solid feat for an actor who was playing characters named "Beggar 2" less than four years ago. This is an actor to keep an eye on.
