Irons, 24, is the son of actors Jeremy Irons and Sinéad Cusack. He was in a recent adaptation of ‘Dorian Gray’ with Colin Firth and had a small role in Being Julia, in which his father starred opposite Annette Bening. Claflin, 23, is currently working on British TV series ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ in Budapest.
It is also rumoured that the two actors are competing for a role opposite Amanda Seyfried in ‘The Girl With the Red Riding Hood’.
