We certainly had high hopes for the young actor, even championing him for the lead in 'Captain America' when that role was up for grabs. On the horizon, he has a supporting turn in Robert Zemeckis' "Flight," which should prove another opportunity for him to shine, and the actor remains prominent in the indie scene with a handful of films, including two from helmer Chris Nelson (the classily titled double of "Gay Dude" & "Ass Backwards") and a starring role opposite Krysten Ritter in "Refuge."
Geraghty will now add another interesting string to his bow with a starring role in "Kilimanjaro," which will see him play a man determined to climb the titular African mountain (pictured above) after a recent break up. Little known filmmaker Walter Strafford will direct from a script he wrote, with lensing to begin in New York next month.
It's no Marvel blockbuster, but we guess it'll do. Seriously, someone needs to give this guy a shot at the big time. [THR]
