Aussie newcomer Benedict Samuel has scored a role in Jake Hoffman's upcoming feature film "Asthma". Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad) is already attached.

According to Deadline, "Asthma" examines the consequences of the live fast, die young mentality in NYC’s indie rock scene.

Benedict, the younger brother of actor Xavier Samuel, is a graduate of NIDA. He is known in Australia for playing Hammer Pirovic on Channel 7's Home and Away.

Jake Hoffman is American actor Dustin Hoffman's son. Asthma will be Hoffman's feature film directorial debut. 

Congrats, Benedict!
