Dev Patel Cast as Zuko in THE LAST AIRBENDER
Dev Patel’s success is just getting started. After Slumdog Millionaire, he has now been cast in M. Night Shyamalan’s THE LAST AIRBENDER, as Prince Zuko, Aang’s nemesis.
I was writing up the news about the rest of the cast for The Last Airbender, and came upon this news, which apparently is all over the fansites.
Originally Jesse McCartney was in negotiations to play Zuko. But turns out the part eventually went to Dev Patel. Well, I couldn’t be happier with this change of casting. I am also kind of excited to see Dev Patel as an “evil” character this time.
The Last Airbender is based on the Nickelodeon cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender about Ang, the new Avatar who needs to save the world from the Fire Nation.
So what do you fans of Avatar have to say? Are you excited by this casting news?
