Kodi Smit-McPhee — the 11-year-old Australian actor who will make American audiences’ acquaintances as young Logan in X-Men Origins: Wolverine — has joined the cast of The Road.

As reported by IGN Movies (via Australia’s Daily Telegraph), Smit-McPhee will play the son of Viggo Mortensen‘s character in the Joe Hillcoat-directed adaptation of Cormac McCarthy‘s Pulitzer-winning novel. The young actor is already familiar to Australian audiences, thanks to his role as Eric Bana‘s son in Romulus, My Father.

IGN goes on to report (via The Pittsburgh Business Times) that The Road is kicking off an eight-week Pittsburgh shoot next month, and adds that Guy Pearce and Robert Duvall have been added to the cast. Since Mortensen and Smit-McPhee’s characters are almost exclusively the focus of the book, IGN speculates that Duvall and Pearce — along with another recently added cast member, Charlize Theron — will be seen in flashback.
