Who will be cast as Snowy?

George Clooney did pretty good as a dog in South Park.

But I digress! Spending several years in Germany growing up, my first foray into comic books was with Tintin and Asterix. I was (and still am) a huge Tintin fan. you know I don't write worth a damn, so for more intersting info on the series, you can check it out here.



Back to the story! So Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson have teamed up to Co-write/ direct/ produce the first 3 Tintin films as motion capture features, which in and of itself is fantastic. Even better is that they've cast Tintin and Captain Haddock! Now, Serkis as the crass sea captain was a gimme for sure with Jackson directing, but casting Thomas Sangster as Tintin was pretty inspired. The kid has some pretty good chops as well as range. Unlike a certain Freddie Highmore who's range pretty much falls in the 'mopey' category. Now, Sangster is a bit young, but it's motion capture and by the time he gets around to voicing the character he'll be about 20, so it'll all work out well!
