Kyle Clements as a young Mazer Rackham: "It was crazy."

Kyle Clements is a young actor from Hammond, Louisiana who plays the younger version of Ben Kingsley's character Mazer Rackham in the upcoming Ender's Game film. He is probably best known for his role as FBI Investigator Lawrence in the Nicolas Cage remake of The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans. He also appeared in Middle of Nowhere with Susan Sarandon and the 2012 action flick Battleship.

Kyle recently sat down with his local newspaper and talked a bit about his role in the film and what it's like working on such a huge project:
"Ender's Game was a large scale production. You could have kids flying around on high wires on one stage while Harrison Ford and Ben Kingsley were doing a scene on another stage. All the while I’m being spun around in the cockpit of a jet in another stage. It was crazy."
As we reported earlier, it's very likely that Clements was used to film several flashback scenes as well as the propaganda vids released by the International Fleet after the Second Formic War.
Clements plays a fighter pilot in Ender’s Game, which was nostalgic to him. Growing up, Top Gun was one of his favorite movies.

"Having a role similar to that was very cool," he said. "Two Navy pilots were even there as technical advisors."

"Ender’s Game has a huge fan base. When someone on the crew of 2 Guns heard I played Young Mazor Rackham in Ender's Game, he wanted a picture with me," Clements said. "It's flattering," Clements said. "I encourage everyone to pursue their dreams, whatever they may be."
Good advice!

It's exciting that the production team behind Ender's Game has brought in so many professionals to make sure that this film looks top notch, from Cirque du Soleil acrobats to astronauts, and now Navy pilots. They even sent the kids to Space Camp!

We're really excited about these possible flashbacks and propaganda vids, and still wondering if those gas masks are going to be used! Do you think we'll get to actually see them boarding the Formic starships and finding the insectoid crew lifeless and catatonic?
