Is Fred Figglehorn Playing Chase Stein In ‘Runaways,’ or Did Somebody Spike the Water Supply?

Lucas Cruikshank isn’t exactly a household name, but Internet junkies know him under the alias Fred Figglehorn, his character in a series of videos about an overly active and lonely child who starts posting videos of himself on the interwebs. Soon, you may know him for another reason — all thanks to Marvel Studios.Cruikshank himself spoke with Movie Web and said that he’s auditioned for a role in “Runaways,” Marvel’s upcoming adaptation of the comic book series launched by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona.

“Oh, my gosh,” said Cruikshank. “I want to be in [RUNAWAYS!] Yeah. Those comic books are awesome. So that would be sweet. I auditioned for that a couple months ago, but I don’t know.”

Unless he’s tapped for a cameo role, Cruikshank is most likely looking to play Chase Stein, the hot-headed teen who provides plenty of snark and fiery fisticuffs for the group of runaways. Physically, it’s not a bad call — the actor is a little too fresh-faced for Chase, but otherwise looks the part — but can viewers get over his Fred personality and accept such a drastically different character like Chase?

Let’s, uh, try and keep an open mind here.
