Known For: Portraying the title characters in both "Billy Elliott" and Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin"
In His Favor: Bell has the right marginally-unconventional look and mischievous on-screen charisma needed for the part, and he's managed to shine even in lifeless sci-fi fare like Doug Liman's "Jumper."
Against Him: Bell lacks the name value that would make him a top choice.
