He followed it up with a simple: Jack O’Connell, who is what the British would refer to as a "lad’s lad", has made a career of playing tough young British teenagers. He is best known for playing James Cook in E4’s Skins , a very popular teenage television show in the UK that counts Nicholas Hoult (Jack The Giant Slayer, X-Men: First Class) and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) among its alumni. He was introduced to a much larger international audience this year when he starred in 300: Rise of an Empire, playing young warrior Callisto.
