Spy Kids' Mason Cook becomes a ranger and magician
While doing press for Spy Kids last summer, Mason told reporters his No. 1 acting role model and idol is Johnny Depp. Well now his dream is coming true! Mason’s landed the role of Will in Disney’s new movie, The Lone Ranger (slated for theaters May 2013), starring none other than Johnny himself. “This is definitely the highlight of my career so far," Mason says. Yeah that would be the highlight of our lives as well!
As if that isn’t enough, Mason got booked for yet another upcoming feature flick, playing Young Burt Wonderstone in a new movie starring Steve Carell, Olivia Wilde and Jim Carrey called The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. Mason’s character is the young version of Steve Carell’s character, a Las Vegas magician who has lost his love for the art. Most of us can agree that Carell is hilarious and apparently Mason agrees, too. “He is one of my comedy heroes and is just as funny off-camera as he is on-camera,” he says.
We can’t wait to check out these new flicks and see what else Mason Cook has in store for us.
