If you've seen Sofia Coppola's new perfume commercial with Natalie Portman then you've seen Alden Ehrenreich having the oh-so-difficult job of romping around with her on a bed. He was also in Sofia's Somewhere the rumor goes but well does anybody have any idea what his part was? He's credited as uncredited and I'll be darned if I can remember him in it. Or maybe you're one of the twelve people on Earth who saw Francis Ford Coppola's last movie Tetro and you know him from there. Apparently he's very popular with Coppolas. Not a bad gang to be appreciated by.
According to his bio he was "Discovered" by Steven Spielberg at the batmitzvah of a friend of Spielberg's daughter, and those quotation marks are not mine, they're theirs, so it makes me look at getting "discovered" in a whole new, dirty light. Who knew Steven Spielberg trolled batmitzvahs for fresh young fellows?
Anyway he's in FFC's next movie Twixt Now and Sunrise as well. And for a non-Coppola related project he was one of the names bandied about to play Spider-Man before Andrew Garfield was announced. Yadda yadda he is pretty goshdarn adorable (although I'm starting to get freaked out that I'm attracted to people who were born around the time I was entering my teens) so let's stare at him some.
