Has James Cameron Found His "Avatar" Star?

by | October 18, 2006 | Comments

The news has been confirmed in an official capacity, but according to a handful of movie sites, James Cameron has found a star for his long-awaited "Avatar." And it’s not the sort of leading man you’re probably expecting…

Joel Moore is (allegedly) the guy, an amusing young actor best known for his work in comedies like "Dodgeball," "Grandma’s Boy," and the upcoming horror flick "Hatchet."

Here’s the report from Cinescape: " According to a Hollywood North Report source, Joel Moore has been all but officially confirmed as one of the leads in James Cameron’s forthcoming science fiction epic, "Avatar."

In the future, Jake, a paraplegic war veteran is brought to another planet, Pandora, which is inhabited by the Na’vi, a humanoid race with their own language and culture. Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture."
