Looks like we have our first possible actor in contention for Ben Grimm, aka The Thing, in the Fantastic Four reboot.
Movies.com reports that sources are stating Josh Gad is up for the role.
This is the first actor associated with The Thing so far as it's speculated once Ben Grimm undergoes the transformation the character will be created through CGI. It's possible if Josh Gad is really up for the role that he could be used as the human version of Ben Grimm as well as the voice of The Thing.
Gad recently voiced Olaf in Frozen.
Fantastic Four has a June 19, 2015 release.
