Alex Pettyfer, the dreamy British star of films such as Magic Mike and Beastly, has gained a bit of a reputation in good old HWood for being a tad difficult, but difficult or not, he sure is nice to look at. And it would seem Precious director Lee Daniels agrees with us, as he has cast the actor in his latest film. His latest film, about a gay action hero.
Wait, wasn’t Pettyfer already a gay action hero in I Am Number Four?
And it doesn’t stop there, with Daniels telling Out that Pettyfer’s character will also be in an interracial relationship in the pic. He described the film as: “Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but the two good-looking guys as the action heroes.”
Oh, and then he added: “We don’t find out they’re gay until the end of the movie.”
So, as we said above, Pettyfer, who also worked with Daniels in The Butler, is in, and now they are looking for someone to play his man. Feel free to leave your suggestions below in the comments. Personally, we are all about Mr. Michael B. Jordan for this one.
Oh, and as an added bonus, watch Alex chat about stripping in an interview we did with him last year for Magic Mike.
