Real Steel” star Dakota Goyo has joined the cast of Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah” as the younger version of Russell Crowe’s title character.

Goyo joins a supporting cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth and Barry Sloane, the “Penthouse North” star who was recently tapped to play a poacher in the Paramount/New Regency pic.
