Tron 2.0 Finds a New Lead
01.07.09 by Ryan
Disney has picked their lead for the Tron sequel, says The Hollywood Reporter, and it is the newcomer Garrett Hedlund (Friday Night Lights). Hedlund may not be a household name at this point, but neither was Bruce Boxleitner back in 1982. Hedlund beat out Ryan Gosling and Star Trek's Chris Pine for the role.
Like Boxleitner, Hedlund will play a man who gets sucked into a video game and fight the Master Control Program. He joins Boxleitner, Jeff Bridges, and Olivia Wilde (who recently gushed about the project) in the multi-million dollar sequel.
