After months of searching for the perfect person to play Fat Albert in the new live-action movie, the search is finally over. The dubious distinction of depicting the husky hero falls onto the wide shoulders of newcomer Omar Benson Miller.

While his name might not ring any bells now, trust us, by the time Fat Albert hits the screens this Christmas, Omar will be a household name. He's got two other projects scheduled to come out this year. First, he plays a bully with a mean streak in Sorority Boys. And then, he gives a passionate performance in the highly anticipated 8 Mile, the Eminem movie about growing up as a white rapper in Detroit.
