Yeah, it's going to be hard for me not to see him as his character in Hannah Montana.

At the same time, I'm kind of proud of the guy and think he'll probably do just fine.

Having not watched Hannah Montana ever, would he play a sociopathic jerk well?

Pretty much this.

Not that it's saying much, but he was probably the most talented actor on that show and I do think he has the skills/range to go with the undeniable energy he had in it. He played someone who was a bit...off, in a comedic way, but I bet he could swing it in the other direction.

I've never seen Hannah Montana but I remember him from Nacho Libre. He was much younger and pretty cute. Not Bonzo-ish at the time but if he's a good actor, I'm hoping he can pull it off.

At the very least, he's a fan or Ender's Game and he has a picture of himself reading Ender's Game. It's pretty cool!

To be fair, names are normally given to newborns, whom almost all parents describe as "beautiful."

i hear you. i'm not saying the dude is ugly i'm just saying he doesn't strike me as fitting. if osc signed off on it, i guess it's legit but he did write the short in InterGalatic Medicine Show titled "Pretty Boy."
