Hooray!

Very exciting news for Beetle fans everywhere.  We have cast the role of Simon, the lead in the film.  Please welcome Gattlin Griffith.  He is perhaps best known for his role as Walter Collins in "Changeling."  He was the very first kid I saw and I loved him immediately, but since he was the first, I thought I needed to do my due diligence and see what else was out there.  But I never found anyone who I responded to as viscerally.  I needed to push my start date by a week or so to accommodate his schedule, as he will be in Louisiana shooting "The Green Lantern" until July 2nd, but well worth it.  I'm so happy to have him on board.  He's a great actor with a lot of intensity and is perfect for the role.
