**Beautiful Creatures **may not have rocketed him into the YA franchise hall of fame, but Alden Ehrenreich has been finding plenty of work regardless. Woody Allen hired him for Blue Jasmine and he’s currently in talks to join the star-studded ensemble lining up for Joel and Ethan Coen’s latest, **Hail Caesar!.

The film, which already boasts Coen veterans George Clooney and Josh Brolin alongside Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill and Ralph Fiennes, revolves around a 1950's private eye/fixer who tracks down and covers up scandals for studios to keep the stars in line.

Fiennes will be a director under contract to one of the studios, while Tatum is a Gene Kelly-type star. Swinton, meanwhile, will be on the other side of the studio gates, hunting for juicy stories as a gossip columnist, presumably along the Louella Parsons or Hedda Hopper lines. So far, Hill and now Ehrenreich’s roles have yet to be revealed.

Joel and Ethan are gearing up to make the film later this year, but they’re not the only well-known filmmakers to hire the young actor: Ehrenreich has just finished work on Warren Beatty’s latest, untitled project.
