Eragon the movie (based on teen author Christopher Paolini's books Eragon and Eldest) opened Friday, December 15 (to generally terrible reviews), with 18-year-old unknown Edward Speleers as Eragon. Speleers has had no prior film experience, in fact his only performances have been in school plays at Eastbourne College, the private boarding school he attends in England, but according to his website "when director Stefen Fangmeier saw the blond Brit with blue eyes he thought Edward was perfect for the part." Speleers, who beat out 180,000 hopefuls, found out that he'd won the role when his father called him and he was so excited that he ran down the halls screaming in only his boxer shorts. He says, "I was telling everybody, 'I got the part! I got the part!' And then I realized that I had kept the audition a big secret so no one really knew what I was talking about anyway," If you wish to impress teenagers with your inside knowledge of the newest teen "hottie" visit http://edwardspeleers.com/
