EXCLUSIVE: Thomas Horn, the youth Scott Rudin saw as a 12-year-old Jeopardy! winner and then cast him to make his acting debut in the Oscar-nominated Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, has been set for two more feature roles. Now 14, Horn will star in the Sean McNamara-directed Space Warriors, about five kids who win coveted spots at NASA’s space camp and spring into action when something goes wrong aboard a space station.
He’ll then star with Kris Kristofferson in the Chuck Rose-directed Joe’s Mountain. In the film, Kristofferson plays a former ladies man who’s miraculously cured of cancer and tries to save a boy with bad lungs by taking him to a magic lake to heal him. Horn plays the kid. He’s repped by ICM.
