Due to a scheduling conflict, Jack O'Connell will be unable to play the role of Ethan Wate in the Beautiful Creatures film. While we're sorry to see Jack go, we're so happy to call Alden Ehrenreich a Beautiful Creature.
Ethan Wate himself would love that Alden goes to NYU - who knows, maybe Link and Ethan and Alden have all ridden in a subway car together? And since Alden's last project was with Francis Ford Coppola, we are lucky to have him.
But most of all - look at that face! Lena will love him!
