Cast For Spielberg's 'war Horse' Revealed

Last Thursday, reports turned up online indicating that Steven Spielberg had cast actor Eddie Redmayne in the lead role in his screen adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's YA novel War Horse. Not so fast, says Empire Online, who landed the exclusive on the film's full cast list. Lo and behold, there's no Eddie Redmayne listed at all. Instead, the role of Albert -- the young man who heads to Europe to save his beloved horse, who's been taken for cavalry use during World War I -- will be played by Jeremy Irvine.
