Good Morning, World

I know that I tend to, like all of the world, ascribe credit to cute straight white boys when the actual credit might be, you know, a little less than. But this morning's news -- that Josh O'Connor came up with the "original story" (alongside a writing partner named Michael Gilbert) for a teen boy romance musical called Bonus Track -- seems like our boy Josh deserves some extra credit right? Career-wise he seems, thanks to The Crown and all the awards he won for The Crown, to be pretty banging, and this is what he's using his capital for? Good egg! That's all I am saying. Josh O'Connor is a good pair of eggs. Here's the plot of the movie:

"Set in 2006, the film follows a 16-year-old who believes he is a future star musician, even when no-one else in his small town does. The arrival of the son of a famous musical duo who helps him rehearse for a talent show leads both boys to learn from each other and grow closer."

It will be directed by a first-time feature film-maker named Julia Jackman and Bankside Films already picked up the rights -- cast-wise we have "Jack Davenport, Alison Sudol, Susan Wokoma, Ray Panthaki and Josh O’Connor... alongside newcomers Joe Anders and Samuel Small in the lead roles." Add this to his tennis movie with Luca Guadagnino and his gay romance with Paul Mescal for Moffie director Oliver Hermanus and whatever next he does with God's Own Country director Francis Lee, and Josh is one of us, one of us, gooble gobble, whether he's sucking dick in real life or not. Anyway these gifs are from the 2013 soccer flick The Magnificent Eleven and I'm astonishingly never posted them before, so sit right back and I'll show some tail after the jump...
