Director Baz Luhrmann has tipped Nicole Kidman's 12-year-old AUSTRALIA co-star to become the country's next big thing.
Aboriginal boy Brandon Walters was hand-picked by Luhrmann to appear in his forthcoming film, which also stars Hugh Jackman - and the director is convinced the youngster is going to achieve major success in the movie industry.
He says, "Our next leading man is about four foot high, (with) long, sort of gold hair, and is an Aboriginal boy."
