According to The Hollywood Reporter, 25-year-old Australian actor Xavier Samuel will play Riley in Eclipse!  What do you think of Summit’s choice?

“Samuel, repped by Management 360, Gersh and Shanahan in Australia, has been in series of films down under, including “Newcastle,” in which he played a Goth teenager amidst  a group of surfers (the movie played Tribeca last year — though you can bet Netflix will see just a small spike now), the Aussie period drama “September” and the upcoming sci-fi thriller “Road Train.” This marks his first U.S. role.”
