HAPPY (LATE) BIRTHDAY JOHN BOYEGA
Actor John Boyega turned 23 on March 17. We missed his birthday here for St. Patrick’s Day and yesterday’s 9 months to go announcement.
What no one reading this Countdown will miss is his rise to stardom. Unless his performance in The Force Awakens is not particularly strong (hello, Hayden Christensen) he should see his star quickly rise. If he’s not very good, we may not see much of him after the conclusion of this trilogy (goodbye, Hayden Christensen).
Boyega is best known for the indie movie Attack the Block and had a featured role in 24: Live Another Day. He’s about to be very, very well known as Finn, the storm trooper (we think he’s a storm trooper, right?) whose frightened visage opens the teaser for The Force Awakens.
