Is Josh Hutcherson the new Vincent Chase? The young actor, who has recently transitioned successfully to adult roles with strong showings in “The Kids Are All Right,” “The Hunger Games” and “Detention” among others, looks set to star in the upcoming Pablo Escobar film “Paradise Lost.” Fans of “Entourage” (yes, that show had fans) will remember that in the series their Pablo Escobar movie “Medellin” was an absolute clusterfuck, so fingers crossed for J-Hutch that this version doesn’t go the same way. Although Hutcherson is in line for the lead role in the flick he won’t actually be playing Escobar himself, thankfully Benicio del Toro is also on board and will fill the infamous drug baron’s shoes. This will be a biopic more along the lines of something like “My Week With Marilyn,” where our lead character is the one through whom we get to meet the famous face. »
