Jack hopes for Monster hit

Jack Reynor isn't the only young Irish person determined to break into Hollywood.

Another up-and-coming actor has just landed a starring role in a Hollywood film.

Raw star Sam Keeley has been signed up for the sequel of sci-fi blockbuster Monsters.

The film could be the big break for the Offaly-born star who also starred in Reynor's break-out movie, What Richard Did.

The 23-year-old plays shy Philip in the kitchen sink drama and has also starred in Misfits.
