After courting Alexander Skarsgard, Tom Hiddleston, and James McAvoy it appears that The Crow finally has its new Eric Draven.
Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, The Hobbit) has evidently beat out the rest and landed the role. Evans will juggle The Crow with the rest of his schedule which includes The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, and press for Fast & Furious 6. He also signed on for a lead role in Dracula: Year Zero. Relativity Media has agreed to push filming back until early 2014 to accommodate his schedule.
I have to admit that I have never heard of Luke Evans nor have I seen him in a movie before. While looking at his IMDB page I realized that I haven't seen any of the movies he has been in. I have absolutely no idea what to expect and would have rather had Tom Hiddleston. I'm back to being completely uncomfortable with this whole thing.
