?Somebody hopes so, since 14-year-old Asa Butterfield — the star of Martin Scorsese’s upcoming movie Hugo and who apparently was in Merlin for a little bit — has been cast as Ender Wiggins in the threateningly close to actually happening Ender’s Game movie.

Maybe they could bring in a consultant or something, I hear former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky might be available. (Via /Film)
