So, yesterday we decided to move away from stunning foreign models as part of our One to Watch section and instead chose to mix things up a bit, by bringing you the talented young actress Ellery Sprayberry. Today we have decided to mix things up a little bit once again, by this time bringing you the young, up and coming actor Neel Sethi as our One to Watch for today.
We would not be surprised if there are a few of you who have not really heard of the name Neel Sethi, as the young actor is only just really beginning to make a name for himself in Hollywood. So far in his acting career, we have only seen Neel Sethi in the short film Diwali but all that is about to change and Neel Sethi is about to become a household name.
Hollywood veteran Jon Favreau is directing a big screen, live action adaptation of the classic tale The Jungle Book and, while it will be a live action movie, there will only actually be one person who we see on the screen, as the rest will all be CGI animals. That one person will be Neel Sethi, who has been cast in the role of Mowgli in The Jungle book.
While Neel Sethi s the only actor that we will actually see in The Jungle Book, he will be surrounded by some very big Hollywood voices, including Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Christopher Walken as King Louie, Lupita Nyong'o as Rakcha, Giancarlo Esposito as Akela, and Ben Kingsley as Bagheera.
The Jungle Book will open in October 2015 and we look forward to seeing what Neel Sethi has to offer the acting industry.
