Mooer joins the cast that includes, Blake Lively, Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Johnson, Salma Hayek, Benicio del Toro, John Travolta, Uma Thurman and Emile Hirsch.

Moore is best known for roles in films like, Hatchet, Grandmas Boy Avatar and Beyond a Reasonable Doubt. Audiences will see him next in Relativity's Shark Night 3D in September and the Summit thriller Gone in February. I liked him a lot in Avatar and Grandmas Boy.
