One of the best ways to make it big in the showbiz industry is to ride the coattails of someone famous. That is, if you have very little talent. In this case though, it doesn't seem like either. Child actor Bobby Coleman will be getting another taste of the spotlight while working with Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus in her upcoming movie, The Last Song.
The Last Song
Filming for the Nicholas Sparks-penned flick has already begun, with 12-year-old Bobby Coleman in the role of Jonah. There aren't any further details regarding the nature of the part, but it looks like this aspiring actor will do his best. He's already worked alongside John Cusack on Martian Child; he can surely handle being around Miley.
centers on the relationship between father and daughter, played by Greg Kinnear and the Hannah Montana
star respectively. The two of them are forced to spend time with one another in a small Southern beach town, trying to reconnect despite their troubled past. The only way they can do that is through (what else?) music.
