Well, that was fast. Just a couple days after it was first revealed that the hunt was on for someone to play Danny Dyson, the son of Miles Dyson, the brain behind Skynet who got blown up real good in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," he has been found. And it's not "Attack The Block" star John Boyega.

We're only three actors in, and "Black Mass" is already serving up an abundance of dudes we really like. When he's not falling over backwards into Helena Bonham Carter's closet for costumes, Johnny Depp does some of his most fascinating work, while Joel Edgerton usually owns whatever he's in. And with the pair already signed up for the gangster pic "Black Mass," they're letting one more major talent into their midst.

We might still be waiting to hear about the new Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke is said to be the front-runner, with Brie Larson still in contention too), but "Terminator 5" has found her on-screen son. While Tom Hardy was said to be the target for the role of John Connor (played by Edward Furlong, Nick Stahl and Christian Bale in the previous films), Skydance and Annapurna Pictures' reboot, "Terminator: Genesis," it's the actor's co-star in "Lawless," and the upcoming "Child 44," Jason Clarke who's won out, according to Deadline.
